I've been searching my brain for some profound, thought provoking things to say to bring this year to a close and I'm coming up empty.
I also noticed that my last post was the 26th and I don't like letting that much time pass between entries; I'm afraid y'all will go elsewhere for your reading pleasure.
Ok, that's two paragraphs. Can I possibly fill up two more with empty drivel? Hell, yes!
2012 began with time spent with our son, Michael and his, now fiance, Rena. Oh, yeah, and Peter started it off with a head cold that took on a life of its own. A month in Destin, FL was good for what ailed us and we'll be returning for another dose in 59 days.
Spring got a head start while we were in FL. We kept receiving obnoxious messages with pictures attached of blooming trees from our neighbors - thanks, Walt. And summer was wonderful - no brown grass this year.
Fall brought a return visit from Michael and Rena to help mom celebrate her 90th birthday. It was a grand time.
Petey and I worked the fair in September and then took off for a car trip out west. We checked out national parks, Las Vegas and saw a whole lotta nuthin' in between.
And here we are with two days left in this year and hardly any snow to speak of. I'm liking that part.
I hope you all begin 2013 (are you saying "two thousand thirteen or twenty thirteen?) in good health (every third person is coughing and sneezing so good luck with that one) and good spirits - non-alcoholic or laden with booze. Take your pick.
Did you count the paragraphs? I far exceeded my goal.
