Something great or small that made you happy today....

Today unexpectedly I heard the "Theme from The Magnificent Seven" by Elmer Bernstein it made me smile.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=sY6GhGsZngA (the real deal) although many remember it best for the beautiful Marlboro commercials. Or... If you listen you will hear it playing throughout Frontierland every 30 min. or so.

Thirty years ago I used to listen to the Crusaders. Today on the way home from work I was listening to NPR and they were profiling Joe Sample, from the Crusaders, and Randy Crawford. They had teamed up years ago to record the hit single "Street Life." They are back together with a duet album and they say that they've aged like fine wine. The new CD is "Feeling Good." Crawford sings and Sample plays his own compositions. It's a mix of soul, jazz, gospel and pop. I don't listen to as much jazz as I used to. Hearing the samples from the CD made me smile.

Today I realized I had a check direct deposited into my banking account that I didn't even know was there. I can't wait to convert those greenbacks into tiki mugs!

today, i spent 3 hours shampooing, drying and brushing my dog, Trader Pup. may seem silly, but the sound of the dryer and just being with my puppy, makes me feel connected and content.

On Friday I read the post by Hiphipahula and clicked the link to listen to Elmer Bernstein's "The Magnificent Seven." I hadn't heard that piece of music in years. A friend of mine wasn't going to be able to use her tickets for the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra on Saturday night and she gave them to me. I went to the symphony last night not knowing what was on the program. The second piece on the program turned out to be Aaron Copland's "Suite from Billy the Kid." I thought it was a very interesting coincidence. I love Aaron Copland and of course you can't listen to the "Suite from Billy the Kid" without an imaginary western playing in your brain. How funny a coincidence is that?

This weekend while out of town I found a small lot of retired Tiki Farm mugs from a few years ago in a retail store so I bought them up.

What made me happy today was I received a PM from tikicleen regarding two carved tiki poles I was going to purchase from Bo's shop in the Sacramento area. We were all there back in December and I had talked to Bo about purchasing these from him at the time. The poles came out of a local area establishment long closed and I was going to eventually use these in my tiki room, yet to be built.

I ran into Bo on Sunday at the monthly antique show and he told me he had sold them, since he had not heard from me. It was my bad, as I wasn't in a hurry and I wasn't aware he was in any hurry to sell them, no worries. Bo told me he couldn't remember who he sold them to, other than the people who bought them were at the party in December. Quick deducing on my part led me to PM cleen, and now I know where they landed. Even happier they landed there. Am I jealous? No, I am happy they went to a good tiki home and that I will get to see them again someday.
Mystery solved!

Psycho Tiki D (I know I am and I know where they are)!

The guy next to me at staff meeting (the horror) wrote "staph meeting" on top of his note page. Then when questioned about wanting a cup of the morning brew, he just passed the coffee cup and said no since he had switched from beer to wine for his morning routine. No one even noticed. It was incredible.
