    Things you’ve reminded me of that also make me happy:
    – cbc radio (I am in love with Lyndon Penner and would like to garden with him forever)
    – knowing that someone else knows they are NOT gophers
    – The Chicken Lady (and of course, “I squisha your head!”)
    – Fred Penner (I once asked him for his phone number and address instead of an autograph. He told me his wife wouldn’t like that. I was 4.)
    – the realization that if I made a list of the things that make me happy, I’d take less for granted.

    Thanks again for your wisdom and hilarity, Erin!
