Something Good

Kind and gentle reader: In a few days, I’m flying to Oregon to visit family for a few days. Since I won’t be online much and flying home on Monday, there won’t be a Something Good list next week. Don’t forgot, there are 390 of them at this point, so you could always look back through the archives and see if there’s anything you missed, make/do something good of your own, make your own list to share, or take the week off (that’s my favorite option).
