Joy, Joy, Joy!

In my daily trolling for WC news I came across a new article by John and Nancy Ortberg. It starts like this:

Psychiatrist William Frey spent years studying the dramatic impact that laughter, humor, and joy have on our lives. He found that joy increases our pulse rate, blood circulation, and oxygenation. Joy causes remarkable relaxation. Frey discovered, "Humor banishes the tightness and the severity necessary for anger. If mirth is experienced, rage is impossible."

So here's to a rage free day!

I wish I had the guts to be "Fashinoable Dude" most days. Now I think I know why those Red Hat ladies are always having such a great time!

Those Red Hat ladies are real?! I thought they were a Simpsons creation! Now I have two things to be happy about!

is it really a "dude" or just a bearded woman?

My favorite Red Hat ladies encounter was at a Teppanyaki style restaurant (think Benihana.) They had occupied all 16 seats around the two grills, and could be heard throughout the entire place. Somehow, it didn't bother anyone, we all just thought it was cute. But man! Groups of college aged women have nothing on these ladies, they were having a ball.

I'm pretty sure it's a dude, but everytime I look at those legs I think of Wonder Woman!
