Happy New Year Y'all

Happy New Year folks!

I don't make New Year's Resolutions but if y'all do, I hope that yours can be fulfilled.

2010 is the Year Of The Tiger in the Chinese calendar. Does that mean we'll have to keep hearing about Tiger Woods?! [latest Mistress count here] Geez. Don't ya feel like saying "enough already"? [grin] I know, I know ... it's news. But is anybody else as tired of hearing about his escapades as I am? I never watch televised golf but I know it's very popular but I guess not as popular as watching someone's life flush down the toilet. It's only natural to want to gawk. But it's such a tragedy all around for his family. I feel especially sorry for his kids. They're gonna have to live with how skuzzy their dad was for the rest of their lives. Sad. Children always suffer for the sins of the father (or mother), don't they?!

I predict that 2010 is going to be another busy year, both personally and also politically.

The much anticipated Federal Census will be coming around in April. Here in the country, ours has always arrived through the mail. I'll have my list of questions for the Obamanation ready. [wink] We'll see how this pans out.

Congressional elections are in 2010. Hopefully, this year we'll replace *ALL* of the House. Top to bottom. I do pray that there will be a resurgence of citizens wanting to turn back to the Constitution. The Republicans have been weak kneed and the Demoncrats have been ... well, evil. Time to move on with new leadership, don't you think?

First planned vacation on our agenda is the much anticipated International Motorcycle Show in Greenville, SC. WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS (can you tell??). We both live, eat, breathe motorcycles. Pictures and much whining for a new model to follow. [giggle]

Next we're planning a nice long journey to south Texas in February. The main reason for the trip is to go migratory birdwatching at Padre Island National Seashore. We LOVE to bird watch! While there, we will be visiting with what have become some of our most treasured friends the Price's. Even though we've only known one another for a little while, it's seems like we've been freinds for years. [Pappy's Place] [Carey's Corner] They are such warm hearted, right thinking, fun loving people! We're really excited about this trip.

After that, the rest of the year is up for grabs. I would still like to travel to Maine soon to visit with another one of our new friends Kirk Rogers. We met Kirk on a bird watching expedition one winter in Savannah. He takes the most spectacular photos! That's one of his photos at the top of my blog which was taken from my front porch. Pretty, isn't it? But a trip to the nether regions will have to wait until warmer weather. I'm told they only have two seasons in New England: Winter and June, so, maybe we'll go in June!

Oh, and I may take a brief sabbatical from blogging. We'll see how the news progresses. I just need to recharge my battery's with a little down time.

So, what's on y'alls plates this year? Any interesting trips or special events?

Well, I'm sending prayers that only good things happen to all my blogging buddies. Keep the faith and stay vigilant!

I think I just caught the full meaning of Obamanation. Yes, yes, YES, it's time to move on with new leadership!

Happy New Year!

We have the latch string out and the dog tied up, so come on down. By the way thanks for the plug. The check is in the mail. Only 363 more days to buy your fireworks for next New Year's Eve. Pappy
