1. That the Mary Tyler Moore Show is available on Sundance Channel every Thursday.
2. A terrific production we saw of IN THE HEIGHTS, the first musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It truly is unbelievable how much local talent there is in Detroit. The huge cast, orchestra, sets, direction was terrific and it cost $25. They must have worked for almost nothing.
3. That the neighborhood I now live in is such a welcoming place. I don't think I ever realized how alienated I was in the 40 years I spent in Grosse Pointe. A Democrat in a Republican stronghold just never feels comfortable.
4. Flannel sheets. I think the first half of my life was spent without them. In Michigan, they are necessary.
5. Seeing the protestors show up at international airports within hours of Trump's latest indignities. And seeing the lawyers, working pro bono, there too. We are not the people Trump makes us look to be. The last time I protested I was a teenager
and most of the people protesting with me were in their twenties. We
were protesting about something that mainly affected us. This time the
protesters are 3 to 93 and they are protesting the dissolution of our
democracy. They are protesting for other people's rights as well as
their own. I am proud to be an American when I see those scenes from
airports and from city streets.In capitol buildings, in the Mall. Fight
What about you? What made you happy this week? I know it is hard to find things right now.
