Electric jack o'lantern (in the dark). Part of my Halloween decorations.

I love how the classic jack o’lantern face, whether evil or goofy, is still essentially a smiley face!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Hood smiley, in Texas. Photo courtesy of Sara Snoek.

A while back, my sister sent me this on my phone. “Saw this car in the parking lot of my Dr’s office,” she wrote in the text message. “Had to share it with you. :)”

Thanks, Sis! We’ve had smiley cars on this blog before, but this is one of the happiest I’ve ever seen!

I wonder if my wife will let me paint our car yellow….

Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Photo taken April 2010.

I’m a bit of a coffee snob, and while I’m sure that Dunkin’ Donuts coffee tastes just fine, I prefer to eschew big brand names in favor of buying local roasts. So I can’t tell you if this “Toasted Almond” coffee would actually make me smile. But I certainly love the packaging!

Timer. From my personal collection.

For a long time this lived in my kitchen, but then my wife — who, I’m very grateful to say, does all our laundry — needed a new timer for laundry day, and I was only too happy to volunteer the smiley face! Makes laundry day seem like less of a chore. (I hope.)

Smiley tie. Photo courtesy Jennifer Snoek-Brown.

My wife took this photo of one of her former colleagues back when we lived in UAE. So of course I got jealous — not that she was taking pictures of other guys, but that this guy has one of the coolest smiley ties I’ve ever seen! I definitely want this tie!

Thanks for the photo, Jennifer. And now you have your Christmas shopping list. 🙂
