My Wishes For The New Year


To all my blogging Friends, I wish you a Happy New Year, a year of Good Health, Prosperity, and your dreams realized. I could list you all, but I won’t for there are just so many. Links to you are all over this blog.

To my Homeland, the Nation of my birth I wish continued Prosperity, greater unanimity of purpose and Amity, success in our relations with our neighbors and allies, and the defeat of our enemies – named and unnamed, within and without.

To my Writing Friends I wish success in your writing endeavors, completion of those works over which you have labored for so long. May your publishers be eager to print your work, your editors bowled over by your prose and poetry.

To my Family and Friends I wish Love, Good Health, Happiness, Prosperity, and Laughter. May the coming year be more than you could have ever expected, greater than any you have experienced before, a harbinger of things to come!

To GOD above I give Thanks for Your Love, Appreciation for Your Guidance (no matter whether or not I pay attention), Thanksgiving for Your Protection, Gratitude for Forgiveness of my many Sins. Be with me always, Father in Heaven. Protect this Nation, her Friends, and her People. Guide her always.

Amen.

Happy New Year, Benning. (I think Dirtman sent that shameless plug. Thank you for being so polite about it.)

But now I have a week off, so I can visit my blog friends!

You just never disappoint, Benning. I came over here expecting a Grand New Year's Toast and Proclamation and you surely delivered.

Up here in the woods we have a couple of colloquial phrases that would be appropriate for your good wishes such as "Top Shelf" and "Finest Kind", but my selection would simply have to be "Wicked Cool"!

Cheers and God Bless, Sir!
