Happy New Year...

y'all...here's one that's not quite so generic:
At least it references the year.

I could do the typical "high/low points of the year", but I'm not going to.  The low points aren't worth repeating and the high points are history anyway...and now it's time to look forward and move on.

In 2017 I hope, as always, to be a committed Christian, a more loving husband, and the best employee I can be.

I will also continue pursuing writing as a career.  My less than stellar success in 2016 is a disappointment but not a deterrent.  I'll keep writing and focus on doing a better job of advertising my work.

On a more mundane note...this last day of 2016 was largely spent de-decorating...vanquishing Christmas, as it were, and returning the house to "normal" if there is such a thing.

One of the items I put away for another year is a favorite Santa Claus ornament:
That's Santa leading his 3 piece band, The Peppermint Twists.  Here's a little bit of their act:
Ok, so that's their entire act.  Still, it's pretty good and I do enjoy pressing the little button and hearing Santa beating his bongos and his elves blowing their saxes.

Karen reported a random sighting of a cardinal outside our closet window this morning:
Red doesn't look like he's in any danger of starving to death...

Ok, that's all I've got for this last day of 2016 / first day of 2017.

It's pushing 1 am on this first day of the new year, and time for me to fall into bed.

Looking for better / different in 2017.
