Good bye to 2009.
Today was cold and rainy here in the valley. I didn't leave the ranch, despite having Windy here to help take care of Stan. Joan, the physical therapist, came this afternoon to put him through his paces. He did very well.
The threat of a snow shower is looming over the area. I don't know what the family is/are doing at their various domiciles for celebrating the end of a decade and the beginning of the next. But, the night is dark [no blue moon evident here. 30 for the low tonight].
I can remember the Green Parrot on a snowy New Year's Eve in 1968. I wore a black velvet dress with cap sleeves. The Green Parrot is an empty lot now and the dress is long gone (imagine that - I tossed it out sometime in the 1990's or early 2000's), but, I still have that piece of jewelry I got that night at midnight. [big emerald cut diamond ring set in platinum.]
Time to change the calendar.
I am looking back at some personal/important dates in this decade:
Some dates are memorable, some are forgettable -or I wish they had never happened. but they did and here we are...
Not looking back - always looking forward. That's my resolution for the year 2010!
