Since I’m running low on days of the months to finish my 35 acts of random kindness, I decided to go ahead with a suggestion from one of my readers. This is the link he sent:

The duck floated through the city of London for the sole purpose of making people laugh. “No one could suppress a smile”, the article reported. “We want to make sure we get the laughter quota back where it belongs. Psychologists recommend we should laugh 15 times a day to stay happy and healthy.”
My version is on a smaller scale. Much, MUCH smaller. I hope that it caught some people by surprise and made them smile. Even better, I hope it gives the grounds keeper guys a a grin. It’s gotta be funnier than the normal stuff they find in the water fountains!
Last year on my birthday, I intentionally did 34 “pay it forward”, “make someone smile”, “random acts of kindness” throughout the day. It was awesome, but this year, I want to put a little more time and effort by using the whole month of September. I think that will give me enough time to squeeze 35 actions, representing my 35 years of life. I have a list of ideas, some are easy, some are hard, some cost money and some require time. A few things I’ve been meaning to do forever and just need a little deadline like this to make happen. I hope you’ll cheer me on as I do some things a little out of the ordinary; and if you are inspired to do a random act of kindness in my honor, I’d love to hear about it. I’d consider it a little birthday present!
