Well, it has been quite a year for me. I have had my ups and downs but overall I feel that it has been a good year for me. My new job, my church, Teresa, and my family have made it a good year. Although I had to give away Shakespeare, our new dog Max is working out well. I am really excited about the new year ahead. It will be one year closer to retirement, my trip to Alaska will be my best adventure yet, and I am in pretty good health both mentally and physically. Resolutions for the new year, how about being more committed to my church, joining the pool at Fort Monroe, losing weight ( I have already lost 8 pounds on my doctor ordered low cholesterol diet) and trying to make the most of what life throws at me. I think it will be important to maintain a good outlook on things and always treat each day as the gift that it really is. So with help from my family and friends, as well as God, 2007 should be a great year. I hope it will be a great year for all of you also. Happy New Year !
