I live in a world where men still tip their hat and say howdy, where you wave at cars going past you on the highway, whether you know them or not. Shopping days are at the Mexican border, Good morning, hola, buenos días, or just bueno, is said by me to everyone I pass in a store. In such a close knit community, that person may be helping me to change a flat tire, or picking out a good jicama. It pays to be friendly.

I remembered to pick up a birthday card to mail to an old friend who's got a birthday next month (no e-cards around here!).

I love it, it's a photo of a diapered baby wearing Ray-Bans. The inside says:

"Happy Birthday to someone who has probably been cool forever".

The card arrived this weekend (he's in a different state, but is our lead guitarist which merits special attention). He loved it!

Do it. It's back-to-work day tomorrow for many, but make someone smile. You'll smile too
