"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."

Welcome to
Feel GooFriday on this GooFriday!!!

Erika 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.  Go over to her blog for the details.

"The Girl" is busy constructing a new website so for the time being this feature is being hosted by lia sophia tomgirl.  She has a great blog, be sure to check it out!

It started out as anything but a Feel Good day, but then something happened and I realized a few others, and found some funny things to share and this day has turned around.

1.  Jeff received some wonderful news this week at work and again today.  I can't tell you details but he works very hard and it is being recognized.

2. Authors are some of the best people in the world and I have been blessed to call some really good ones my friends!!

3.  Everyone is this house is reading!! I read all the time but Jeff is reading the new Patricia Cornwell Port Mortuary (A Scarpetta Novel). Katy just finished Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas. Betsy stole The Vampire Seduction by Raven Hart off my review pile, she likes vampires much more than I do, maybe she'll do a guest review. Jayme, yes Jayme, is actually reading Troy by Adele Geras for school says he is "loving it".  Kaden's favorite read to me book this week was Marley and the Kittens by John Grogan.

5. From an email this week.  Scroll down slowly.
A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for
Valuables  when a voice in the dark said
'Jesus knows you're here.'

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze.
When he heard nothing more, after a bit, he shook his
 head and

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard

'Jesus is watching you.'

Freaked out, he shined his light around
Frantically, looking
For the source of the voice.
Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight
Beam came to
Rest on a
'Did you say that?' he hissed
At the parrot.

'Yep', the parrot confessed,

Then squawked, 'I'm just trying to warn you that
He isWatching you.'

The burglar relaxed. 'Warn me,
Huh? Who in the world are you ?'

Replied the bird.
'Moses?' the burglar laughed.
'What kind of people would name a bird

'The kind of people that would name a
Rottweiler Jesus.'

I can't wait to read about what made you

Feel Good this week!!

What made me feel good this week, one renter moved out, and another will be moving in the last week of April, and I feel good because, I finally finished all my scrubbing of the place. My knees are sore, my back aches, but I feel good!!!

What made me feel good was enjoying a beautiful day with my Husband, he finished part of the painting on our new storage building and I helped with part of the trim... Not only was it nice to have him home on a weekday but it was nice to have him home "well" for a change too!

Lori whatever is going on congratulations to Jeff, glad to hear about all the reading your family members are getting into and most of all glad to have you back in good form...

Happy Easter to you and yours, may it be a joyous and healthy one for all!

Happy Friday...um, I mean early Saturday! =O)

Just wanted to stop by and welcome you to the read-a-thon. Just remember, it's all for fun. Be sure to come over to the sign in post whenever you start reading next week. You can do a post of what you'll be reading, if you like. We'll be having some mini-challenges and giveaways. Should be fun!

That a great burglar story- I love it! Around here, spring is a 4 letter word, not to be spoken in mixed company lest we scare it away. After a mild week it's not nice today. Above 39, yes, but just not nice. Thanks for linking up!
