Act 305

Enter to win

We went to a Ducks’ Unlimited fundraiser last night. The reasonably priced tickets included tickets for door prizes and bucket draws. We each won a prize. I won a $50 gift certificate at a local auto shop and my husband won a prize pack from the casino in Vernon that includes a meal voucher and some gaming money. So minus the few beverages, we came out ahead on the deal, some money was raised for a good cause and a good time was had by all.

It’s not how much money you spend, it’s how you spend your money and in this case, spending money actually made us a little. Which is more than you can say for the typical night out at a restaurant or pub.

Act 223

Star Gaze

There is little in life quite as amazing as an evening of star gazing. To look deep into the milky way and contemplate the meaning of your existence on a clear night is truly more awesome than any rock concert or multi million dollar hollywood movie.

Nature’s extravaganza is a gift. And it’s free. Provided we take the time to enjoy it.

As a bonus, a few hours of star gazing really puts life’s small troubles into perspective. We are infinitesimally small beings in the large scheme of the universe and that too has great comfort.

Find the big dipper. And let it carry your troubles away.
