Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you've always wanted to do but couldn't find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you don't think you can keep.
Walk tall, and smile more. You'll look ten years younger. Don't be afraid to say, 'I love you'. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world. Ann Landers
After our first snow fall a few weeks ago I was amazed to find my Strawflowers still looking fresh and beautiful. Soon the temperatures fell to below zero and the little blooms wilted and faded. But I know this tough little plant will bloom again come spring. Yellow is mellow and will brighten any Monday, visit Mellow Yellow Monday for more.
This has been a wonderful year because of friends like of you. The blogging universe is filled with some of the nicest folks I have ever met. Each and everyone of you are very special to me, I truly appreciate your visits and your friendship.
Wishing for each of you a safe and Happy Holiday and a very Merry Christmas.
I will be taking a few days off from blogging. Mostly for the holiday but also I need to do some work on my computer. It has gotten so slow and I am having a lot of trouble leaving comments on many of your blogs. A little maintenance should solve all of these problems.
Oooooooo Merry Christmas Santa Christmas comes this time each year Oooooooo oooooooo
Well, way up North where the air gets cold There's a tale about Christmas that you've all been told And a real famous cat all dressed up in red And he spends the whole year workin' out on his sled.
It's the little Saint Nick little Saint Nick It's the little Saint Nick little Saint Nick
Just a little bobsled, we call it ol' Saint Nick But she'll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick She's ol' candy apple red with a ski for a wheel And when Santa hits the gas, man, just watch her peel.
And just for fun I am including a Coke commercial from a few year back, I've always thought this one was so sweet.

Grew up in a small Georgia town with a desire to see some of the places I had read about and many I had not. I moved to Alaska and lived there for about ten years. My jobs took me to many parts of the state including Barrow, Nome, Kodiak Island and many more. I have also lived in California, Oregon and now Washington state.
Let this be the story of the journey so far.
My my, hey hey
Rock and roll is here to stay
It's better to burn out
Than to fade away
My my, hey hey.
Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There's more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.
