Happy 2009!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas/Holiday Season and here's wishing you a very Happy 2009.

Ours was a very busy season and I'm kind of glad it's over and we can get back to a regular routine of more sleep and less stress.
My parents celebrated their 65th on Dec. 15th. They have had an amazing marriage and are lucky beyond most people's wildest dreams. I think they look pretty darn good for 87 (mom) and 89!

Socks loved Christmas!

As did Mooky! She claimed this present!

I really think that I'll blog less in 2009 as I just have too many other areas in my life that I'm not covering as well as I should be. Thanks for reading my blog and commenting and I'll try to get around to yours every so often.

Congratulations to your mom and dad on their 65th wedding anniversary! Yes; they both look wonderful!

I'm thinking of cutting back on time spent blogging, too. Writing on my blog is a great creative outlet, but, like you, I have other areas of my life that continue to need time and attention, too.

Happy New Year to you!

Lovely photos of your Christmas and family celebrations. Congratulations to your parents on their 65th wedding anniversary. Both look WONDERFUL ... as do you ;--)

I'll miss your occasional posts, but to everything there is a season ... and perhaps you're ready for other experiences than blogging. Hope you experience joy & wonder in 2009!
Hugs and blessings,

Everybody needs a little blogging break now and then and we all need balance in our lives. I had to take time off for my exams and it worked out just fine. Here is wishing you a Happy New Year and sending my greetings for RennyBA as well!

Does your father still write any poetry? I remember your post of his war poem on Veterans Day. He is quite descriptive with his words.
Like the song goes: "you can checkout, but you can never leave".
I am happy to have traded thoughts with you.
A nice year ahead be yours.

MOI, a belated happy birthday to you and we're almost the same age. I'm turning 55 in less than a month. It's so amazing that your parents, a very fine and happy looking couple, had their 65th anniversary! I love all the photos and LOL Socks and Mookie are adorable!

Excuse me,
how come?
I must have been very confused in the past weeks.

Happy New Year.

55 - it's just a number.
Like Anna 3x20.
It's your mind that's important.
And your mind is still very creative and young.

Have a great weekend. Hope it's not too cold. Here it's around
minus 3 C. But only 1 cm with Snow. Too less for skiing.

I've juste posted a Hat;))

Happy New Year to you too. Your parents look wonderful. They would fit in so well with the population here in Florida. I'm always amazed when I go to a restaurant at the number of seniors there or anywhere for that matter.

I've been blogging less too. There are definitely more important things to do, although I don't want to lose touch with the friends who have come my way through this medium.

Keep in touch.

Wow! 65 years. That is amazing. I am barely on 12-1/2.

Yes, they do look very good for their age and you are blessed to still have them both around.

We had a good holiday as well. Visited my brother in Brantford for Christmas and then went to New York for New Years. I was very tired after all that.

Sorry, I misremembered. The line is: "You can checkout any time you wish; but you can never leave"
from "Hotel California" by the Eagles. Circa 1975 (I think)

I hope that you are well.
