Happiest New Year Wishes

Wishes are free, and in this case they are also heartfelt. We all deserve a "good year," and it won't do any harm to think Good Thoughts about having one, even though it kinda seems like 2008 was rode hard and put away wet.

However you feel about it, 2008 was one helluva year and for the most part it was one I personally hope we don't have to re-visit too often.

So here's to all of us who made it through. Who knows, maybe we're all a little tougher because of it. (Smarter might be too much to ask.)

Best wishes, everyone. Hope for the best but keep your powder dry.

That's a great picture. I'm always surrounded by trees here, no matter where I go. The wide open spaces look good.

2008 was a bad year for me personally, and I'm not sorry to be shed of it. I don't have much hope that 2009 will be better, and I'd give a lot to see my posting this time next year, assuming I'm around to do a posting. But we just have to take what comes and make the best we can of it.

The Irish have a toast, often made at this time of year...

"May we all be alive at this time next year!"

I could certainly drink to that.
