Where did this year go? I have asked that for so many years now, I can laugh at my self.
I can say jack, it went where all the rest have gone. You had just as much time in 2014 that you did in, lets say 1946 when you were in the first grade. Funny isn’t it? Life is sorta like a roll of toilet paper, the longer it hangs the faster it rolls out the paper.
Sherry and I do not sit down and write ‘goals’ too often. Truthfully I haven’t even made up a bucket list, and the time for me to kick the bucket, is fast approaching.
The yearly thing is not a LIST or goals, but we talk of what we would like to do. So last year I said, “I would like to finish the AT.” I did try but decided I could not climb the Mts carrying 45-50 lbs. So if it was a goal, it didn’t happen.
I might think tonite, and come up with a goal or two, maybe it is time.
But for sure it is time to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR with health and happiness, love and friends and a pleasant surprise or two.
PS: I am putting the Shipslog to sleep for the last time in 2014, thinking back, we are so glad we did not lose a family member in 2014. You thik of these things when you are older. I did lose two good friends Fred Alton Brannen that I met in 1959 and Paul David Page (Bub) that I met in 1951. We also lost a sweet acquaintance, Bill Morris.
If you had too much snow and muddy roads in 2014, My wish for you is clear, smooth sailing in 2015
