A Special Way For Us To "Ring Out The Old Year"...

When most of you read this it will be New Year's Eve, Wednesday, December 31, 2014, and you'll be in the midst of planning your big celebrations - many of which will stretch on into the next day.  Thursday you'll likely be trying to recuperate from your celebrating by watching college football games non-stop from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.  By the end of the Sugar Bowl game Thursday night we will know which two teams will play for the national championship in two weeks.  I love this time of the year!  Go Ducks!

My sweet and very patient wife and I will be celebrating New Year's Eve as we always do - by hunkering down, snuggling by the fire and enjoying the anniversary of our very first date - New Year's Eve, 1966!  Yep, 48 years ago we had our very first date.  We celebrated with friends and danced all night.  She swept me off my feet - well, one of us did the sweeping - and we dated for the next 8 months, then got married, moved 3,000 miles away and began this wonderful journey together.  I'm a VERY lucky guy!

So, we both want to wish all of you, or both of you, depending on how many are reading this entry, a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.  Thanks for taking the time to read what appears here and for responding when you feel moved.  Fasten your seat belts, folks.
