I don't always pay attention to special occasions here on the Shipslog, but today I want to wish you all a Very Happy and prosperous NEW YEAR.
This past year sure passed quickly. We all know that is a 'WRONG' statement, because except for one days difference every four years they all pass thru the same 365-366 days.
It is true as we age time sure slips away, as in the words of a song, "Ain't it funny, not funny funny, how time slips away." I think it is because time becomes more precious to us who are in the winter of out lives. I held my girl a couple nights ago and realized something as I looked down at that face, I realized I still look at her and see her at 17 yrs of age. She doesn't seem to BELIEVE it, but it is an absolute truth.
I have seen 76 New Year's days. I don't remember the first few of course. I will turn 77 this first month of 2016. This year we will celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. Yep we started early, married at 17. It hasn't been a perfect marriage, it was rough on Sherry raising me and the two boys at the same time, but she got it done, Bless her heart.
This will be a wonderful year, 2016. I can remember when that was a FOREIGN number. Shucks, I didn't even expect to see the year 2000. LOL
I hope you have a wonderful year and we go thru 2016 as friends. Life is good!
