The Final Day

We have fewer than 24 hours left in the day. It's noon for me so fewer than 12 hours here in Central Time. No on in the world will ever have another full day of 2009. The New Year is on its way whether we like it or not. Good or bad... its here... within site.

Oh how time flies.

It's funny how as you get older you begin to sound more and more like your parents. The things that bothered you so much about them is something that you, yourself begin to do. You begin to tell the younger folk that they should enjoy life while they can, it zips by. In all these years I've learned that as soon as you get to the point of saying "I remember when..." then you are no longer young. The years used to take so much time to go by. Heck, a day used to take... hehe... "ALL DAY" to go by. Now, there's not enough time in a day. Things zip by.

No complaints. You just have to remind yourself that time flies when you're having fun. Right?

Life is good. There are constantly lessons to be learned. Things to be accomplished. New goals to be set. A new year is upon us and its high time to make changes where they need to be.

Granted, I never really do believe in this whole "New Years Resolution" bit. I think that if a person is going to make a change then they should make that change the day they decide. Waiting for the new year is only another excuse of why not to start right away. Get on it. No matter when in the year a change is decided on.

This is probably my last post for the year. Looking back has been quite an amazing time. So many changes we've seen. So many things we're curious what will become of them. So many things will come to be that we can not even imagine.

I want to wish EVERYONE a happy EVE and Happy New Year. Stop dragging your feet. Take control of the coming year and make it all that you want. Go for those dreams and accomplish your ambitions.


  1. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi today. I haven't been here in a while and, for that, I apologize. I took the time this evening to read backwards and see what I've missed. You're shrouded in anonymity and that's a bit serial killer-ish...but I do enjoy the way you write.

    If you post more often, I'll comment more often. I hope you have a wonderful 2010. Most people I know are happy to wave adios to 2009...me included!

  2. I enjoy your comments on my blog. Its always great to have you stop by.

    This is a copy of the same message I am posting in other places. I wanted to visit and thank everyone who has visited or followed any of my blogs. I have so enjoyed this new experience and look forward to getting to know each of you better. May this be a year of joy and prosperity for everyone.

    Happy New Year!!!

    Keep a hug on,

  4. Hi Turtleface,
    How are things going? Just thought you might like to know that I have a visitor on my blog, today, who will be sharing her grampa's true-life adventures as a Rider on one of the Orphan Trains! There's room for everyone to gather in close and get to know Donna, while enjoying her wonderful story-telling talents. I look forward to seeing you there.
