      I hired a plumber to help me restore an old farmhouse, and after he had just finished a rough first day on the job: flat tire made him lose an hour of work, his electric drill quit and his ancient one ton truck refused to start.

      While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence.  On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family.  As we walked toward the front door, he paused briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands.

      When opening the door he underwent an amazing transformation.. His face was wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and gave his wife a kiss.

      Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier.

      ‘Oh, that’s my trouble tree,’ he replied ‘I know I can’t help having troubles on the job, but one thing’s for sure, those troubles don’t belong in the house with my wife and the children.. So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of them. Then in the morning I pick them up again.’ ‘Funny thing is,’ he smiled,’ when I come out in the morning to pick ’em up, there aren’t nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before.’

      THIS ONE IS WORTH SENDING ON.

      Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

      OK, how the hell did this get into the “Website Issues & Bug Reports” thread?

       

      I’ll repost this in the “General Discussions”.

        I think it works here, it’ll definitely cheer up anyone who comes with an actual bug or issue 🌳

      I know when I first tried to post this, several days ago, it keep giving me that red rectangle over the topic name bar.

      Glad to see it somewhere.

      But I posted it in the proper thread so more can find it.

      Hope everyone has a tree or plant of whatever that does the same thing for them.
