Realizing that, after I bought too many cherry tomatoes and they were going south on me, that I could roast them in the oven and then make bruschetta with them... yum!

This isn't the last thing that made me smile, but it made me smile uncontrollably, put a huge lump in my throat, and made me cry all at the same time. At 6:37 a.m., on Tuesday, August 12, 2008, my first grandchild, a beautiful girl, came into the world, caught by her dad, my eldest son. He has an EMT licence and is friends with the doctor and was asked if he wanted to catch the baby. How could he say know to that! Both baby and mother are in great shape, and I got to hear her little voice over the phone. I had just entered the hall where I was preparing to heat up my two batches of chili for our anual chili cookoff (that I never win) when I received a text message from my son. I choked up with a joy so profound, there aren't words to describe it. I immediately called my wife and could hardly get the words out. Her reaction, of course, was the same as mine. She's going to Tacoma next week to see our new baby girl while I'm going out in the middle of October to do the same.

Now that's something to smile about! See all of those smilies? I was wearing them all simultaneously.
