August Happiness Challenge -- Day 10

Look at my happy kitty
Today's happiness: an old joke. Somehow we got onto the subject of Paul Lynde, an actor/comedian all three of us grew up on. My art director contributed this joke, attributed to Lynde from his days as center square on The Hollywood Squares:

Q: How many balls on a regulation billiard table?
A: Depends on how many men are sitting on it.

OK, so it's not Noel Coward. Still, it made me laugh. And laughing is good for the soul.

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy cat. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
