Everything Old Is New Again

My resolutions for 2008:

  • Finish my Associates Degree: I'm still wrestling with Algebra and have decided to by-pass a traditional math class this semester and concentrate on self-study so I can pack in 2 Math for the Liberal Arts classes during summer session. Can you believe that is all that's really holding me back? It must be done and I have come to accept it.

  • Make a Quilt: When I mentioned this to my Jessica, she reminded me that I had been "making a quilt" for years now. This will be the year. I have decided the perfect quilt will be make of cotton flannel (remnants of a hundred years of pajamas for the girls) with a polar fleece backing. This should make it lightweight, warm and very soft.

  • Reclaim my TR6. I have spoke to 2 attorneys and it will be expensive to pursue this, so I'm looking at other alternatives--like maybe getting acquainted with the local courthouse and filing some of this stuff myself.
This will be an interesting year for me. My Jeni graduates from college the end of April.
It's also the year I turn 50.
And it just might be the year that my Jessica moves to Virginia.

50. You will turn 50 with style, friend.

The quilt idea sounds wonderful.

Happy New Year...wishing you well in pursuit of your resolutions. I, for one, never make any just so I don't have to strive for anything in particular. Like I always say, when one strives for nothing, they are never disappointed.

I'll be 50 this year, too. Great year.

I never actually have said that word out loud since I left school.

I might say it now. Hmmm, no, still hurts as much now as it did then....

You have duly impressed me.

We once had a TR5 (red and sexy), a Triumph Stag (blue and not as sexy), Triumph 2000 and 2500. I loved the TR5. Good luck with the TR6 - that is a delicious car.

Wow, there are a lot of us turning 50 this year! Me, too. In June.
