Last year was a good year in all. I turned 40, traveled to Brazil for a wedding, and drove to Arkansas in the summer to visit family. We got a puppy (a lot of work). I had a surprise with my health, but I know it will be OK again. I reconnected with some long lost friends (through Facebook), which was a pleasant surprise.
My hair hasn't changed much in 40 years.
Here are we are in Rio de Janeiro.
Pete and the kids on Bull Shoals (Northern Arkansas) lake in the summer.
So, I look forward to 2009 with trepidation but I am hopeful that I'll come out of it healthier and stronger. I hope this next year won't define me, but rather, be a distant memory someday.
Happy New Year to everyone.
