Resolved, in 2018, I will………

1. Write a post every day (unless it interferes with my naps.)

2. Never discuss politics on my blog (unless some fool doesn’t agree with everything I believe, in which case it becomes my duty to educate them.)

3. Continue to show every courtesy toward by fellow bloggers (unless their posts make mine look dull, forcing me to secretly unfollow them until their writing eventually falls down to my level.)

4. Do my part in the ongoing fight against direful climate change by only breathing on alternate days.

5. Increase my cultural awareness by reading all the classics, and I mean every last book that Dr. Seuss has ever written!

6. Keep up both my mental health and physical health by thinking about working out every day!

 7. Finally take responsibility for training my dogs instead of the other way around. To begin, I will set an example for them by no longer jumping on and licking guests when they come in the front door.

8. Try to do more community volunteer work. In that vein, I will contact the local Dunkin’ Donuts to see if they need help in their bakery section.

9. Try to cut down on the inordinate amount of time I spend on Facebook by using it only during the times when I am not napping.

10. Keep up my tradition of never boring my loyal readers with those annoying “Top Ten” lists.

    • What time of year are you going? You have planted a seed of possibility here. I’ll send you a message on WhatsApp. More hugs ❤ Xxxx

  1. I love you my Bro…may we get to hug this year in person. Virtual hugs for you and Patty till we can do that. Happy New Year. Xxx ❤

  2. Hello Al,
    I love this post, especially the sarcasm. A man after my own heart ! So I am following you. A soldier was asked why he was following a junior officer and he replied that he was doing so out of idle curiosity. The same with me and you really.
    Have a great 2018 and thanks for visiting my blog. Both Natascha and I love your comment. Ralph 🙂

    • Welcome to my blog, Ralph. Will be following your adventures vis a vis the wedding. So interesting what you had to got through. The red tape here in the U.S. just between states is bad enough, I can imagine what it’s like between countries!

  3. #5 is truly admirable, especially if you even read the second Cat in the Hat book (why did he feel he had to write that??). If you’re really interested in raising cultural awareness and exploring the issues of racism, cultural identity and loss, can I recommend Mem Fox’s “Where is the Green Sheep”? You’ll never look at the world the same again.
    Happy New Year, Al! I wish you well in your 2018 endeavours.

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
