That's a strange phrase isn't it?

Out with the old, in with the new. 

We look forward, not knowing anything about what is ahead. We pretend it will be better than what we're leaving behind.

That old stuff wasn't all that good was it? The new stuff is going to be better.

Lots of that going around. The pretending. Lose some weight. Exercise more. Call our friends and relatives and tell them how much they mean.

That sort of thing.

First, of course, will be the regular stuff. Work, grocery shopping, laundry, make dinner, lay out the clothes for tomorrow for work etc.

Make the calls tomorrow. Maybe the day after that if things get hectic. But soon...

Then all of a sudden it is tomorrow or the day after and the phone rings, and rings, but nobody picks up.

     ****************************************************************************************************

I know for certain I'm not going to miss 2015. The phone rang too many times without getting picked up.

I will imagine however that it will be a better year and that good health will prevail, and that if someone makes the extra effort to call, that I will pick up the receiver, and hope that if I call them they will still be there to do the same.

wishing for the best,

Happy New Year 2016

tr ig,

I'll admit that "Out with the old and in with the new" is good advice when it comes to cleaning the refrigerator.
