New Years Eve Thoughts

Well, 2012 is winding down, the Champagne has been bought, the pizza supplies have been bought (we are  hosting a “make your own pizza” party New Years Eve), the Christmas tree has been packed away for another year, and the Titans are playing their last game of he year.


We have had a very eventful year, with a wedding, birthdays, rehab from my stroke, and more.


We have lots to be thankful for, including two children who have made A-B honor roll every grading period, a beautiful, healthy grandson, and ample employment for everyone in our circle of friends.  We have our health, and with our new gym membership, we are planning to improve that further.


Here’s to all our readers, and hoping you all have a wonderful 2013, too!

Thankful for…


Thanksgiving dinner is past. The food was wonderful. The guests were greeted, a toast was offered, and the turkey was carved. Plates and glasses were filled, and refilled.

When the topic turned, as it always does at Thanksgiving, to the topic of thankfulness”, I had plenty to be thankful for.

In the past year, I have recovered, and rehabbed from a stroke; married the most wonderful woman. I am thankful for my job, my beautiful children, my wonderful grandson and the rest of my family. I am thankful for my friends, and pleased to be blogging again.

I am also thankful, to you, my readers. I hope that you all have also had a wonderful thanksgiving.
