Could You Just Pretend.....


























that this cartoon caption says Happy New Year instead of White Christmas?

Actually, for me it is the other way around. I drink red until it runs out and then I may try the white, but I doubt it.

I won't say that 2009 has been a banner year for us and in fact, I'll be very glad to see it go. One thing I can say, though, and it's that Blog and Facebook friends have kept me going when the going was rough. You bring me such laughter, compassion, energy and learning! I can't imagine what I did before you came along. I am frequently amazed at the strength of the bonds forged here and eternally grateful for them. I hope that the new year will bring you peace and contentment, and the knowledge that you are appreciated more than you know. Here's hoping that 2010 starts the best decade we've ever had!!

Can't say 2009 was good for me, either! Let's hope 2010 will be much, much better for both of us!

And I do hope we all learn to say Twenty Ten instead of two thousand and ten!!

Happy New Year to you, Judy, and Mr. Kenju!

PS. just seen your security characters - they read Chictest - think I'd fail any testing of my fashion sense!!!

The same to you and may your New Year be wonderful. I am afraid that I love the poster and wish I had it!

You said it so well, Judy. I love the "air born" friendships that have been forged through our blogs. Here's to a wonderful 2010...

You deserve it for all the good things you bring to your readers all year.....

I so agree with you, Judy, about blogging friends and Facebook friends keeping you going. I love my friends whom I see face to face regularly, but I especially love those friends on the internet who have become like family.

I do hope for you a good 2010.

Judy, I agree about online friends.
The friendship means more to me then each person will ever know.
A busy year for me, exciting, tiring and still some issues to close what I began.
Wishing you peace and your heart's desire in the coming year.

Carolyn said...

I hope that includes me Judy, because... well... I am just insecure that way, lol!

Happy New Year ;-)

I agree-blog and FB friends are always so supportive. I can't believe that I am such a fan of the on-line community, but it does work. Hope that 2010 is a great year.

Happy New Year, kiddo.
I feel the same way you do, don't know what I would do without all of you :)

Happy New Year! (My verification letters spell "sheeze" which nicely sums up 2009.)

Granny Annie said...

That is so funny. It is exactly what I did but I'm like you, going first for the red then hitting the white. There's no accounting for winos:)

awareness said...

Hey Judy.... 2010 was a true roller coaster ride on this end too. Like you there were days when the best smiles and laughs came from the blogworld and facebook. Your posts, quotes, photos, stories always make me smile. Happy New Year to you and that man of yours. :) May the flowers all around you continue to bloom!
