"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."
--Author Christopher Benson

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY!!!


Welcome to Feel Good Friday! 

Laura had found that a lot of her bloggy friends reading posts about being positive, so she thought she might try her very own meme.  She just wanted everyone to feel good and have some happy thoughts as you begin the weekend.  

I thought it sounded like fun and
it is never too late to join!!! 
 I have posted the prompts here to give you some idea of what this meme is about:
Pick one of these prompts and write about it on your blog!  You can: 
  • Just make a list. List 5 things that made you really happy this week. No matter how bad or boring you think your week was, I bet you can find 5 things.  
  • Write about something that happened to you this week that really made you smile.  Was it your child, husband, or maybe a complete stranger did to you?
  • Write about something that YOU did for someone else that really made them happy or laugh.
  • Is there something you treasure so much that every single time you look at it, it brings you happiness?  Post a pic and tell everyone about it.
  • Having a hard week and can’t find one good thing about it?  Well then, what is your happy place?  What do you think of that makes you happy? A past vacation?  A childhood memory?  We want to know!
Then head over to 
and link your blog so everyone can visit and see all about what made you 

Feel Good!!!

 I Missed Last Week and Missed All Of You!!
 WHAT MADE ME SMILE THE LAST TWO WEEKS!!

1.  Our son, the youngest, Jayme registered for his SENIOR YEAR of High School and had his Senior pictures taken.  I should have some to post in a couple of weeks.  


2. Our youngest daughter, Elizabeth, registered for her first semester of college.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
3. My sister, LueAnn and I did some excellent detective work this week tracking down a virtually unknown author that has written a true story novel about our little home town of Columbus, Wisconsin featuring a time before I was even born.  I hope to be getting a copy of the book today or tomorrow.  




Chapter & Hearse (A Booktown Mystery)
4. Two of my author friends have made the New York Times Mass Market Paperback Bestseller List.  Lorna Barrett for her new installment to her Booktown series, Chapter & Hearse.   

Murder Past Due (Cat in the Stacks Mystery) 
And Miranda James for her debut novel in the new Cats In The Stacks series, Murder Past Due. 

I have read them and gave them both an I LOVED IT!!!!! or 5 stars*****.


5.  This has been National Smile Week and I can't think of a better way to celebrate than with one of my favorite songs.


Yes it is Friday the 13th but I hope you all have a wonderful  
Feel Good Friday!
and a great week ahead!

Lori,

Loved, loved, loved your list. I registered my daughter for her Junior year of High school. Man, how time flies!

I watched the video twice and smiled (ok,ok and a few happy tears) the whole time.

Happy, Happy Friday!
