HAPPINESS - DAY 3
10 August 2022
was surprised to discover that I did this challenge last year too...and last
year I also started a week into it, so I'm just copying what I did a year ago,
though with perhaps a lot of new things that make me happy.
My back scratcher makes me happy!
I have one on my desk and one next to the recliner and I use them all the time.
I have a very itchy back. especially a spot on my left back that is just below
where I can reach it overhand and just above where I can reach it underhand, so
the scratcher is perfect.
either a back scratcher or stand against the wall, like a bear does against a
tree and scratch it that way. The nice thing about a back scratcher, is
that you don't need to actually stand up, but can scratch while sitting

bed cautiously, put his paw out to touch the bed and then jump back.
Finally, I took the doll out of the bed
and put it on the floor. He still approached it carefully, but eventually
picked it up in his mouth, then walked through the kitchen whining, Walt tells
He ended up jumping into my lap with
it. We watched TV for awhile with Mr. Bill and after Bubba fell asleep, I
carefully removed the doll and tossed it back on the floor.
Bubba was awake instantly and jumped
down to get the doll and bring it back into my lap again.
I thik I tried three times to get the
doll off of my lap and onto the floor, but Bubba was always there to bring it
back into my lap.
So the three of us slept in the recliner all night long. i wonder if I'm
going to have to sleep with Mr. Bill from now on...
