March Tweets of the Month: Guess my favorite!
When I’ve gone a day or two without any tweets at 8days2Amish, I’ll sometimes dip into the archive of nearly 6,000 tweets to bring back a golden oldie. But I’m surprised how fresh the twitter feed remains. Of the following 46, 30 are brand new — and all are all me. I’m proud of that.
See if you can guess my favorite!

My favorite? I like the one about how finding a quarter means I’ve had a really great day. It perfectly captures how I can remain persistently cheerful amidst financial conditions that ought to leave me downtrodden.The picture up top is the one I used to illustrate the tweet & my reaction to finding some silver.
