I know I am not alone in being happy seeing the page change from 2008 to 2009. We didn't just say good-bye to 2008, we kicked it's ass out the door and told it never to come back.
We had a lovely dinner at The Old Towne Ale House with Marla and Mike and Sue, and came home for more drinks and chat. Our friends and neighbors Jodi and Paul came over with their nearly newborn. It was very nice and I can't recommend the Olde Towne more. Great food, (deep fried cheese like harvarti and cheddar and caramelized bacon), a great pour selection and great service.
I'm not one for making resolutions but I do think the New Year is a good time to start new things. Like a new exercise program and a more dedicated writing schedule and a spotless house.
I wish the best for 2009 for everyone.
