Happy New Years From The Hog Blog

December 31, 2014

Happy New YearIt’s over… or it will be in a few, fleeting hours.  2014, for all the good, bad, and yet-to-be-determined that it brought, will be history.  2015 will take its place.

Some of us will look at the change with relative indifference.  Another year past means another year coming.  Same as it ever was, and so on.

Others of us are going to make poems, prayers, and promises… keeping traditions that some of us don’t even understand, for reasons we may not even comprehend.  Fish scales, black-eyed peas, champagne, resolutions, sweeping the house, special underwear, fireworks and noisemakers…

There will be parties.  Be careful out there.  Don’t drink and drive.  Even if I don’t know you, I’d just as soon that you not get out there and get hurt… or hurt someone else… or hurt me.

Tomorrow, there will be hangovers.  There will be broken resolutions, barely born, still dripping amniotic fluid.  There will be sleeping in.  There will be overeating.  There will be football games, both on TV and in the empty lot down the street.  For some of us, there will be sunrise in the deer stand or duck blind.

The New Year, like the old, is what you make of it.  I wish you the best, but it’s up to you.

So, happy New Year!
