Oh, my Sweeties,
Oh, my dears,
Look out, my loves,
Here comes New Years'.
We're going to party
under a shiny new sign
Eat, drink and be merry
We won't spoil this one.
Or mess it up.
We'll tootle and clang and get drunk as skunks
Come fill the cup!
…but don't we say that every year?
Aren't we always glad to sweep out the old and welcome the new?
It isn't always our fault when a year goes sour. Some stuff simply isn't in our power.
I mean, it isn't as though we're responsible for tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis, blizzards and such privation.
We don't start landslides and floods, forest fires and oil spills, smog and inflation …
Instead, let's concentrate on the NEW.
As for me:
In 2009, I resolve to:
Hmm. I have lists and lists of all the neat things I vowed to do last year, the year before and onward backwards for years. I am not always true to those vows.
So this year I will simplify. In 2009, I will:
I think that about covers it.
( and I'll bet I fail by about…. January 10th, at the outside. I know me.)
How about you?
What are your New Year's resolutions?

And for all: A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
