Happy New Year

Sharing more fun from Slim Randles today, hoping we can laugh our way into 2021. If you’re partying tonight, be smart and be safe. With ICUs bursting at the seams, now is not the time to cast caution aside. “Boys,” said our tall cowboy, Steve, “I’ve got a real problem coming up and I’m not […]

Humorist Slim Randles is with us for another year of fun with the gang at the Mule Barn Truck Stop. Today, the guys are talking about what to look forward to in 2020, including the dreaded taxes.  Read on and enjoy… “The highlight of the week before New Year’s,” said Steve, semi solemnly, “is to […]

A Wish For the New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on December 31, 2018 |

Looking ahead to the new year and wondering where we are headed in the United States and in the world, I am not as hopeful, eager, and optimistic as I often am at the end of one year and the start of another.  Celebrating New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, has always been kind […]

Happy New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on January 1, 2018 |

I hope 2018 brings everyone much happiness and good health. This certainly is going to be a New Year for me as I leave this place that has been home for nearly 16 years. In so many ways this plot of land and this house has been more than a home. It was the fruition of my […]

Ends and Beginnings

Wishing You a Happy New Year Be Happy, Be Healthy, and Be Safe   This last day of the year is always one for reflecting on the past twelve months to see what was good and what wasn’t so good. On the world front, there were many not-so-good moments; mass killings, terrorist attacks, refugees without […]

Happy New Year

I know it is not officially the New Year until tomorrow, but in some place in the world it is already tomorrow, so it is okay to start the good wishes flowing. Note, I said, good wishes, not champagne, although some of that is perfectly okay in my book. Tonight, I will be celebrating with […]

Happy New Year

Posted by mcm0704 on January 1, 2012 |

It seems like just the other day we were bidding farewell to 2010 and here we are starting 2012. I remember my grandmother telling me how the years fly by as you get older, but she told me that when I was just 12. I had no idea what she was talking about. Thinking about […]

Happy New Year

It’s official, 2011 started just 12 hours ago for those of us in the Central time zone of the U.S.A. I can’t say exactly when for the rest of you. Get your own calculator out. LOL A friend sent me a link to this cute New Year’s Card so I thought I would share it […]



Time For New Beginnings

Posted by mcm0704 on December 31, 2009 |

Now is the time to throw out the old and ring in the new. The natural response to the beginning of a New Year is usually optimistic and goal-centered. This is when we do some personal housecleaning, getting excited about resolutions that will make us better parents, better employees, better people, and maybe even thin […]
