Happy Darn New Year!

2008 is O-VER, goodbye to the best and worst year.

It had the good (met my BLF, Beautiful Lady Friend, if I live to be 88 I'll be thankful for that!) It had the bad, well, you know the Slam didn't go according to plan. But, as Rafiki said it in the Lion King, "It doesn't matter, It's in the past!" You can either run from it, or learn from it, but you sure in Sam Hill can't change it! If you've got woulda, shoulda, AND coulda, in one hand and a quarter in the other, you can't even get a darn doughnut! Ole' Rafiki Knows, here he is!
I am NOT KIDDING YOU, let's make 2009 about being nice, being good, and being all there in all of the year's moments! It means when I'm with my BLF (we shared a toast at the dawn of the New Year, it certainly started right :) I'm not thinking about being anywhere else, when I'm running I'm enjoying the woods and gratefully acknowledging the ability to run, when I'm with my students they are getting the best I can give.

And I've got hope and I've got dreams and maybe, just maybe this could be the year in which we finally get ....... Revenge against my enemies!

Did it have The Ugly too?

Sorry you and your BLF had to bail last night. We enjoyed tasty food, strong drinks and fireworks!

Cheers to a Happy & Healthy 2009, Andy!

Star, We really wanted to come over, but it turned out very nice (and I was sober, and I didn't have to drive far.) Thanks for thinking of us, it meant a lot :)

Thanks SuperD.

And Dean, it's good to know that you are coming out of your shell and that you are starting to appreciate your many blessings. Can I borrow 10 Large? Come on Dean, please; it's me AndyMan, I won't cheat you out of it, I'll just owe you for a really, really long time!
