Have any?  Hear any?

I know I need to hear something good and I doubt I’m the only one.

    Two weeks ago my youngest daughter (aged 21) got her BA in Celtic Studies. (those 3 people behind the table are her professors)

    Dogs wearing Halloween costumes are frequently cute!

    Also my kids had a pretty great Halloween AND I didn’t have to trek around in the cold with them!

    Not news, exactly, but a concept worth repeating:

    We didn’t want to keep give up Maine in that Missouri Compromise thing. Because we needed it! For…uh…Strategic Moose Purposes…

    Very minor good, though important to me. Yesterday, I lost my keys and had to be let into my apartment by maintenance (as I get home after the apartment office is closed). Fortunately, another tenant found them where I’d dropped them in the entrance area and turned them into the office. So I got them back this morning! Thank you, fellow tenant!

    I have a friend who just made it to Standing Rock.

    Also I have an ex who, in return for crafting and gifting some AMAZING custom figures of Hamilton characters, just received a lovely personal thank you note from freaking Lin-Manuel Miranda!

    Also also, I have friends who are planning a third version of their wedding, because the first two didn’t go awesome and they have a new partner now too, and they are going SO ALL OUT with MAMMOTHS* and PUNS** and CONTAGIOUS HAPPINESS YAY.

    *As in, doing the event at some natural history museum where it can be overseen by a beneveloent wooly mammoth skeleton or full-size model, I forget which.

    **NB partner: “I could be a…gride? Guide? Or maybe a broom!”
