Today's happiness -- "2 Double Beds Private Balcony." My oldest friend is so excited about our get together next August that she's already made the reservation and sent it along! OK, so the balcony will look out onto either the highway or a massive parking lot because the hotel is smack dab between O'Hare Airport and convention center, but it will be private.
We'll be attending the Beatle fan convention, an event we've shared and she (especially) has loved for more than a decade. She is very broke and began saving for the 2022 convention ever since the 2021 event was cancelled last spring. Airfare and hotel will cost her about $900, but she's very confident and enthusiastic. She struggles so with depression that I'm delighted to see her so upbeat and optimistic.
I also miss her sooooo much. Plus, the 2022 fest will be celebrating Sir Paul's 80th birthday. If that doesn't deserve a Happy Beatle Button, nothing does.
