One of my happiest refrigerator magnets.

One of my happiest refrigerator magnets.

I’ve had this happy magnet for ages. It’s part of a whole gang of smiley (and not-so-smiley) faces that lives on my refrigerator.

The whole gang -- including a few cool smileys, a leering mischievous smiley, and a grumpy old frown.

The whole gang — including a few cool smileys, a leering mischievous smiley, and a grumpy old frown.

The gang isn’t exclusive — these smileys do pal around with other smileys, including a different style of “cool” smiley, some of the smiley clips I’ve featured on the blog before, and — not in this photo, but in the vicinity — a smiley face for the state of Wisconsin, where we lived for a few years.

But lately, this particular gang of smileys has been commuting to work: they’re serving double-duty on my dishwasher. I use the traditional smiley when the dishes are clean, the frown when the dishes are dirty, and, once, the mischievous leer when I ran a cleanse cycle on the empty dishwasher.

Right now, the dishes are still dirty.

Right now, the dishes are still dirty.

This smily face magnet that plays “you are my sunshine” has been a tradition on the refrigerators in our family. I am trying to find somewhere to buy them for my grandchildren. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Mine was a gift years ago. I’ve been looking for where it came from but haven’t had any luck so far. (Also, mine is dying! I need to replace the battery.) If I find a place to buy it, I’ll post it here!
