Two nice things happened over the weekend.
Nice Thing #1
I got my carpets at the house cleaned. I paid for a service, and three young guys showed up and in 90 minutes did what would have taken me all day. They also got it done better than I would have.
Nice Thing #2
One of the “perks” of being on programming for a volunteer SF con is that, if the con is financially sound, you get your attendance fee back. This is usually in the form of a check all by its lonesome in a cheap envelope. Well, I got my check back from Capricon and it also came with a thank-you letter. A generic “greetings, volunteers” letter to be sure, but it was the first actual thank-you I can recall receiving from a con.
