August Happiness Challenge -- Day 23

Look at my happy kitty
Tuesday's happiness: Oh, this Cub Team! I cannot believe how good these kids are.

•  The best record in baseball. Again. Still.

•  Kris Bryant is tied at the top of the league with 33 home runs.*

•  Jake Arrieta leads the league in wins.

•  Kyle Hendricks -- you know, the quiet one I always forget about when I count off the starters -- has the league's lowest ERA.

•  And Joe Maddon, of course, the is the coolest manager in the history of ... people.

I come from a long line of Cub fans. How I wish my father and grandma could see this team.

The only team in baseball over .600

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. 

*He hit #33 as I was writing this!


  1. Our City Manager is a huge Cubs fan. He posts about them on FB all the time. I should talk to my Joe about switching allegiance. The Phillies haven't done anything in years to make him happy....hard to get a Philly boy to change though. Eagles and Flyers and Phillies. It's how he rolls. I'm happy for your team!!


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