A Heck Of A Day

IMG_0221_2 (1)To me there are three things everyone should do every day. Number one is laugh. Number two is think — spend some time in thought. Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears. If you laugh, think and cry, that’s a heck of a day.

Outside the                   Cathedral of Saint Andrew in Amalfi Italy I have cried in joy and gratitude, for simply being there, and laughed out loud when considering who’s red laundry waved a welcome back  to me. It was indeed: “One heck of a day.”


Great laugh out loud music today.                                                                           Today’s music:  MC Tracky-Dactyl – Laundryman


  1. I am always amused by the way Europeans have to dry their clothes. My camera usually comes out. The their is the fact clothing dried outside tends to smell ever so much better than clothes dried in a dryer. –Curt

  2. That is how we dry our clothes in the Caribbean, sniff the smell of fresh laundry spreading with the wind. Again, I do agree with the quote at the beginning. Think, laugh and laugh some more.

  3. Well JoHanna your post brought a smile to my face; the clothes being hung out to dry reminds me of a time at a beautiful watertown in eastern China where the Chinese were hanging out their clothes including their ‘smalls’ to dry…very funny.

  4. Well, I certainly think, and generally manage to laugh (the comments about drying clothes have me laughing as I write). Tears? Not every day, but I get by without them, mostly. Except last week and Paris.

  5. A feather and an onion sort out the first two. Figuring out what to wear does for the final. There – a perfect day sorted!
    That dissertation on laundry does do wonderful research on sorting out an incredibly vexing subject …

  6. We learned the hard way how Europeans dryed their laundry on a trip to Spain in 2012. We were told our Timeshare had both washer and dryer. upon arrival – found the washer but not the dryer. Asked at the front desk and they said it should be in our closet. Learned it was one of those wooden dryers where you open it up and hang your laundry on it. There were four of us on this wonderful trip (and the first time we had traveled together). Upon our return to the states when asked how well we got along sharing the timeshare condos, we laughed and said: We became so intimate on this trip of a lifetime that even our underwear became intimate with each other, nothing was left to the imagination.” Fun times!
