For the New Year:

“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...”
― Alfred Lord Tennyson

“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.”
― Brad Paisley

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”
― Benjamin Franklin

"Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average…which means, you have met your New Year's resolution." — Jay Leno

"Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account." — Oscar Wilde

“Out with the old, in with the new” is a fitting expression for a holiday that is based on vomiting.” — Andy Borowitz

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. – Bill Vaughn

Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
Mark Twain

Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever.
Mark Twain

New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.

Missing Person Alert

Elderly man last seen near Inglis, FL banging the meter maid.  Could be driving a Chevrolet pickup truck with a cigar in his mouth.
May have gained 20 lbs. Since this photo...
Havent we all?
Probably closer to 50 lbs. here. I'm outta control.

With that said, I'm wondering what will be opened around here for lunch today.
I've lost a little weight, nothing like that fear of death diet....
I'm hovering around 175, so I keep a few quarters in my pocket so I don't get blown
away in a strong breeze.  That's about 100 lbs below my all time high weight.
