The family and I had a terrific time in Myrtle Beach. Much happiness all around. In our short time there we crammed in quite a lot. We did put-put amidst pirate ships, firing water cannons, Caribbean music and blue-dyed water. I think Myrtle Beach must be the put-put capital of the world.
While I was speaking, Rick took the kids on some sort of medieval adventure quest. I don't know what all that entailed but the kids sure had a blast. Meanwhile, I very much enjoyed my time with Faith Wesleyan Church were we had a mother-daughter luncheon catered by Carrabas (yum). I shared my On the Catwalk message, and they followed it with a fun fashion show. Great gals.
That evening we went to see Under the Sea in the IMAX theater. I adore the whole IMAX experience. And this movie was not only all underwater, it was in 3-D. I'm telling you, it was so fun. At one point I was swatting the thin air in front of me as sea snakes swam towards me.
We felt like cute baby seals swam right up and kissed us. I'm convinced you cannot look a white baby seal in the face and not smile - they're just so cute and playful.
Speaking of smiling and happiness, look at these recent research findings I read this morning:
"Americans grow happier as they age, surveys find. And a new Pew Research Center survey shows the tendency is holding up as the economy tanks. Happiness is a complex thing. Past studies have found that happiness is partly inherited, that Republicans are happier than Democrats, and that old men tend to be happier than old women."

So, here's wishing you an older-Republican-male, baby-seal kind of day!
Bet you've never been wished that before.
