Hi y’all, Happy New Year
I’m ready for better things and good news.. so tell me something good?

I’ll start. Grand baby # 4 arrived on Tuesday, a girl after 3 boys. The big brothers are pretty smitten. I’m doing well, waiting on a more fitting position with the post office. Worked my butt off last year and have been fortunate to be well both physically and financially. Lots of ideas in my pockets and happy to still be thinking sharply and walking the earth with a smile.

Good to hear! Speaking of grand babies, Karyn, I found this pic in an old email - I had totally forgotten about it. From 7 years ago, the day after my grandson Oliver was born.

Something good.
We have 3 kids and 7 grandkids. 5 boys and 2 girls. All are healthy and mostly doing school work from home. I could spend a couple of hours bragging on them but you can probably understand about proud grandparents.
We are retired so have not had the chance to see some of them since the quarantine but do a lot of IM video chats. Hoping this C*** is all over by next summer so we can go spend some time with the 3 boys on the Washington coast then a week or so at their cabin in the Cascades.

Congrats on the all the grand-kids, especially the new one.
If you want to stay happy, get rid of your TV set and cancel your newspaper subscription.

I was just thinking about you yesterday and was wondering how you were doing almost sent a message to Mr. Gregory to ask if he knew how you were getting along. You must have been reading my brain waves. Anyway I’m happy you are doing fine with new additions to the family.

And plant a garden and eat a lot of peaches!

Congrats on the latest. The latest good news here is being declared clear on my colonoscopy. Granddaughter is seven years old and once again doing on-line schooling. Her parents are, uh, coping.

Corngranulations on the new kid.

1935tb-11 Terry, Good News is hearing that someone has beaten this C$%p. More good news is that a friend of ours had complete knee replacement last Monday (1/4) and is now driving his wife crazy hobbling around the house with a walker and not having any pain. The really good news is that I need the same done soon and been concerned about the pain so waiting to see how long it takes him to recover.

Wow! Good to hear! Not to defeat my post, but a friend's dad passed 2 days ago after having it for 2 months, got it from the physical therapist who came to their house. Had a cousin die just before Xmas after being on a vent for about 6 weeks. I've been lucky to avoid it, as has my 88 year old mom. Keep getting better - sending you good health vibes.

That's great news Terry ...... didn't know that you and your wife had gotten it.

Lots of good news from down my way ..... nothing real specific, but got to spend some time with the grandsons (3 & 5) at Christmas.  It's just good to be living knowing that things will get better.  I choose to be an optomist!

Congratulations! Hoosier Gal

2020 was one of the happiest years of my life! I moved, started a new job that I love, working with the nicest people, made friends, lost weight, had fun, welcomed in my first grandchild! 2021 is going to have to work hard to top all that!

Terry, glad you and your wife are better!

thanks everyone,,, she is doing great today,,, her last day of quarantine was saturday,, so she has gone down to see her mom who has been under the weather this weekend. i am still weak and draggy. but no fever and still having my shoulder pain. my rehab for it got cut off because of sinus infection followed by the covid... i think i am a couple of days behind her in recovery. probably have to start over on my shoulder. but we'll see. thanks again for the kind words and everyone be safe.

I have three grand children. For me, it isn't a blessing of "plus 3". It's a blessing of "times 3". I am sure you know what I mean when it comes to counting blessings. It's not additive; it's multiplicative.

Pretty good for a guy whose math skills leave much to be desired.
