Gregory R. Gaskin 1/14/2011 4:20:22 AM

When I first saw your pictures of Mr. Happy this morning I laughed because I have a small reversible Mr. Happy/Mr. Anger on my desk at work. I turn it in whatever direction needed to show the people entering my office what my mood is at that moment. Great image and comments, which is always needed on these dreary winter days. #9162121

Tamara K. Walker 1/14/2011 8:02:09 PM

You were the perfect hostess, that is going to be a tough act to follow. Hopefully he is off to warmer parts so he can get a few wrinkles worked out. #9163663

Mr Happy is a smile maker !!
Hope your good things continue. #9163843

Tommy E. Burgess 1/15/2011 11:22:15 PM

Outstanding and very fung capture Michelle!! It's nice to see some cheer in Winter! #9165560

Melissa Olsen 1/16/2011 6:46:04 AM

Well, it appears that while Mr. Happy was in your neck of the woods it was profitable for him, unlike when he was in CO...all the round little one wanted to do was ski. Those lift tickets don't come cheap...I am sure that he will reap tons of money in the near future with the help of a good advisor. LOL
Great job Michelle! #9165924

Salwa Afef 1/16/2011 12:56:26 PM

So beautiful image . #9166486

Mr Happy would certainly be welcome if he makes it over this way!! A well thought up image, good work.

Cindy Bendush 1/16/2011 9:47:08 PM

This humerous series is wonderfully creative Michelle. Thanks for sharing and may Mr. Happy continue his happy trails wherever they may lead him! #9167025

OMG, Mr. Happy you sure get around! How cool is that! You've visited Michelle early this year~
What a lovely wintery scene you got to witness- hope we can order a little snow for you here in Ontario Canada when you are here!
Keep making me SMILE!!!!

Nancyj E. Hovey 12/18/2011 4:41:12 PM

Gosh, wish I was in that snow with him! Ya, I miss the beautiful part of the Winter...snow! And it all melts in FL... rain is all we get.... glad he could visit so many people. 8o) #9876465

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


I knew in my heart, that if Mr. Happy showed up in Yardley, Pennsylvania (at my door), good things would begin to happen And they HAVE! It all began the day before he showed up! I'm SERious!
Here is Mr. Happy, up a tree during a snow storm. He looks almost as happy as a boy in a dirt pile! The pond is behind him, as is our house on the hill.
This little ball of good cheer stayed with me for almost a week and followed me around...even took a trip to New Jersey.
You can see and read about some of his escapades at the link below:
(P.S.: Mr. Happy met with a financial advisor while he was with me. His new plan will keep him traveling the world worry free for the foreseeable future!)
