About This Show
Sometimes it's hard to get to sleep.You just can't seem to say goodnight to yourself. Booze helps sometimes...or pills. But that's a big step down a bad street. "Good Night" puts a smile on your face, tells you a bedtime story, helps you chuck the day's problems, gives you a verbal back rub, and tucks you in for a safe, sound, sleep. Dick Summer's voice puts a strong and friendly arm around your shoulder. You hear him on television commercials all day. But when it's getting late, and you want to "take the day and shove it," but you can't seem to say good night to yourself... Dick's Podcast is a quiet place to rest your head...a safe place to hide a hurting heart...a gentle place to fall. It's a comfortable way to tell yourself, "Good Night."

Gratitude Attitude Again
1 day ago
I'm sitting here in my big, manly, black leather poppa chair in my living room reminding myself to take note of some of the good stuff in my life. Call it taking time to smell the roses if you like. I call it feeding my Gratitude Attitude. That means having just as much gratitude for the little stuff like taking a deep breath when you open a fresh jar of coffee, as for the big stuff like cashing a very nice check.
Our Gratitude Attitude doesn't mean looking at life through rose colored glasses. Bi-focals will do just fine. "Big Louie" the head guy in my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot, keeps reminding us that we sometimes can't help what's happening in our lives, but we can help how we feel about our lives. I guess you could say it's about taking charge of where we put our emotional focus.
There is a nut case dictator in North Korea, and we need to recognize that threat. But not when there's a scoop of cherry vanilla ice cream in a dish right in front of you. There's a time and a place for everything. Dig in. Enjoy. And remember that not too many North Koreans have a dish of cherry vanilla ice cream in front of them. That's the Gratitude Attitude.
Some politician in Washington pulls an outstandingly stupid, or greedy trick? Be glad you're an American, so you really don't have to sit at the top of your driveway with your shotgun to pick off a pack of bad guys storming up the block to hurt your lady, or yourself, or to take your stuff. At least not today you don't. And probably not tonight either. Not even next week. One day/night at a time. Gratitude Attitude.

love this show
As long as Dick Summer is willing I will continue to be a weekly listener to the Good night podcast.Dick makes you smile, laugh and even ponder about life's daily activities. He makes you feel like you're talking to the guy next door who is there to lend an ear or to a close friend who is there to help through the bad times as well as the good ones.
