Happy New Year 2015
Happy New Year folks! I'm a little late but my wishes are the same for all of my faithful followers. Thank you so much for following my blog this past year. You are all appreciated, even the occasional Internet troll who tries to push my buttons (you know who you are).
So what did I do New Year's Eve? I worked at the hotel of course. Last night we almost had a full house. That was unusual because in years' past we were, at the most, half full. So the economy must be booming, for some people anyway.
Even though most of our hotel rooms were occupied, all the guests were sweethearts. We even had newlyweds. All happy folk last night. No grumps.
So what does the new year bring for Ron? Well folks, I'm thinking of starting a new blog. Now don't get your panties in a twist (to quote my good friend The Cajun), this will be an additional blog. I've been looking at the Word Press blog establishment and I like the clean format of their blogs. I've tried Word Press before but I found them somewhat constricting and difficult to figure out. But, even in my reduced mental capacity these days (I am getting OLD you know), I'll give it another go. Of course a new blog has to have a theme (the good ones do anyway).
This blog will have the theme of GETTING OLDER, which folks, is my status now. Any way you cut it, at 73 and creaking along, I'm approaching ANCIENT territory. And I think it's time to blog about it. Oh sure, I like to stay upbeat and positive but the elephant in the room is my impending doom slow deterioration health factor. I can kid myself that I'm one of those 40 or 50 year old younguns who seem to populate the blog world these days but no two ways about it, I am an Old Geezer and not getting any younger. I think that factor bears a separate blog of its own. Especially since I will be delving into my past history (again) for which some of my blog readers have chastised me about. Yep, I'm going to go there again because I want to and because it is my blog, so there.
Another night of work at the hotel and them I'm off for two weeks. Next week is the Big Trip to LA. I'm meeting my Toronto Pal (Pat) at LAX on January 7th. We will be staying in Hollywood (where else) until the 17th, at which time we will be boarding SEPARATE planes on the 17th for Philadelphia. Don't ask me why we're going on separate planes, it is a LONG story.
So here we go folks. I wish you all a very happy and stupendous New Year. I hope you all get everything that you wish for. For me, I'll keep trudging along until something befalls me and I can no longer write. I've already made arrangements with our dear mutual friend and favorite blogger, Dr. Spo, to inform you all when I am no longer blogging.
Mazel tov everyone!
