2010 Will Soon Be Over

As with every year, there were good times and bad times during 2010.  Even so, almost everyone looks forward to the new year.  Many will tell themselves that it will be better than all the years before, while some will long for yesterday.

Judy and I are looking forward to 2011, but we are doing so with the reality mindset that we no longer have employment income to feed our hunger for adventure.  That's okay, we will just have to select what we do and where we go with greater care.  More important, we no longer are bound by the shackles of employment nor the hands of a clock.  Above all, we have each other to share whatever comes our way.

Meanwhile, we closed out the year with a wonderful Christmas party here at the Chicken Ranch.  It was clearly Friends among Friends having fun. 

The Christmas decorations are down and put away for another year.  The promises to lose ten pounds are constantly reminded by our blue Dr. OZ "Just 10" bracelets.  The life-long dream-trip to Hawaii is well planned and paid for.  The Eggfest season kicks off in March with a "Gathering of Eggheads"  in Salado, Texas.

Both of us are in good health, all but with some aches and pains.  And we have a larger TV to make up for our aging vision and comfortable chairs to nap in when we feel like it.

Yes, 2011 is going to be a good year.
