Weekly Photo Challenge – Happy

Wow! How did it already get to Friday? Wasn’t it just Monday? It’s time again for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, this time the topic being what makes us happy, utilizing their new gallery options for photos. Here goes!

These are some of the things that make me happy.

I want to remind all of you ladies who are 40 or older that this is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – it is very important that you have your annual mammograms! I don’t care that the government has decided that’s not necessary, it really really is. I speak from experience. So be sure that all of you and your friends and relatives, do this. Men, make sure the women in your life pay attention. And men, you need to make sure your have your PSA levels checked. Again, I know from experience that ignoring these things can have bad consequences.

That’s all – have a great day!

    I know exactly what you mean! This week has been super busy. I haven’t had time to read or write in the blogosphere. 😦 I really hope I can get back on track soon. Have a super-great weekend with all the things that make you happy, my friend.

  5. Lovely pics Carol – I can totally relate to the cats playing and I’m guessing there was food involved with the dog shot. 🙂 – Suzan –

    Great images! Thanks for the reminder (of the importance of screening, even if I don’t like the reminder that I’m now fully part of the “40 and over” set). 🙂

    The only problem with the photo challenge is that it’s arrival signals that another week is over. However, it does lead us to lovely collections like yours. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Great gallery. I love the bird sitting in the bird bath. I have one in my back yard, and watching the birds in there is definitely happy making.

    I had my first mammogram a few months ago. It wasn’t too bad. I feel better knowing I have been checked. LOVE those puppy faces. So cute!

    And thank you for pointing out that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. My mother died from breast cancer at the young age of 53.

    I love that collage, Carol! It is a beauty. Was it easy to use? I received the email from WordPress too, but I haven’t tried using the collage feature yet.

    What beautiful birds, adorable dogs, fun cats. Yes, I love animals.
    I would also like to add my 2-cents regarding mammograms. I know they’ve saved many people, but the one time I had one, it was so painful, I vowed never to have another. Instead, I have a thermogram/thermograph, a non-painful set of pictures that an experienced clinician can read to tell if there are signs of developing cancer. I’ve done it twice and I’ve read the scientific papers, which indicate that it works very well. Doctors will give you excuses as to why their hospital doesn’t use it, but I say it’s because they’ve invested heavily in mammogram equipment and they don’t want to retool. It’s always best to read the literature for yourself.

      Whatever testing program is available is, I think, good. The important thing is getting tested. Our center just got new digital mammo equipment, which was much less uncomfortable that what they had in the past. I do agree, standard mammos are not fun. Just get checked!
