A Quiet New Year's

Well, relatively quiet. My wife has Jimmy Buffett's Changes in Attitudes, Changes in Latitudes CD playing in another room. (She has good taste.)  I'm organizing my home office and taking breaks to read parts of You, Only Better by Nicholas Bate and The Devil's In The Cows by Sippican Cottage, two extraordinary bloggers and writers. 

As bedtime nears, I'll take the dog outside for a while and then switch to Mark Helprin's A Soldier of the Great War. My wife and I will have an early toast to 2014. My modest goal is to be asleep by the time midnight rolls around. 

Call me Party Animal.

I have a list of several important goals for the next year. Updates on some of them will be inflicted upon readers of this blog.

Although New Year's Eve will be quiet, the coming year will have a lot of action.

Let me slip this in before midnight (or you're asleep) on behalf of a cast of thousands...thanks for a year of excellent blogging. All the best for 2014 / Tony
