AT THE ENDING OF A YEAR
You know, a lot of things don’t end at the end of the year. No serious issues in the world got “fixed”; none of them ended. No use to write about those. We’ll see the same things again.
But closer to home, there were a few “endings.” Holiday visits ended and the “last day” arrived:
Last chance to play with the new drone:
Uh, the bright green thing floating in the air.
Last hours in Grandma’s state, ending at the airport. He’s California-bound:
Last happy moments with “uncle” –
The airport walk puts a final end to the visit:
Last glimpse of our little family, Daughter in red amidst the Green of the Marching Band :
Our Marching Band, heading to the Cotton Bowl.
So . . .it’s the end of this year’s football season too.
Kind of wish we had seen more of this:
38 – 0
Kind of wish we had played while we were out there on the field. It wasn’t that Alabama was so good (ahem); it’s just that we were so . . . not good. Season’s ended. Good.
But the game gave us an opportunity for a little New Year’s Eve party.
(Sorry for the blur, guys — just preserving a bit of your privacy. )
It was fun being with friends as the year ended. We watched the painful ending of our football season together, along with the ending of the year, and the ending of any attempts at dieting for a while. That’s what parties are for ?? !!
And then the little party ended, and all I have is the aftermath at the end of the night:
Not much food left, pizzas are gone, glasses are empty, “Sparty” blanket is empty and alone, and the fireplace is on its last log.
The Old Year is Ending:
Time to let go and get on with a whole New Year!
And I’d better stop writing now and bring in the extra drinks that were cooling on the back deck; our “warm spell” is ending too and winter weather has finally arrived.
