2018 is gone.
2018 is gone.
It’s a few hours ,no several hours, before we say good morning, good afternoon , good night, and good riddance to 2017.
So much has happened not only all over the world , but in the United States as well.
I’m not one and never have been one to make New Year’s resolutions .
It’s not that I don’t think that I could keep them, the whole idea of making them seems like a real waste of time to me.
I’m not knocking those of you who do make them though.
Do you boo.
While looking at the other social media platforms that I follow , I saw this question .
What did you learn in 2017?
I learned a few things, like how to cook spaghetti a lot better than before.
I learned to appreciate New York City a lot more than I did when I was younger.
All those museums that I found boring as a child now as an adult I want to visit as often as I can.
I learned to appreciate and cherish family members that I haven’t seen since the 1980’s.
Most of all the main thing that I’ve learned in 2017 is that I’m not as young as I used to be, so when this 64 almost 65 year old body breaks down and gets sick, that’s God’s way of telling me one thing.
“Slow it down before it breaks down”
I hope that in 2018, it’s a lesson that I won’t forget and will always remember from now on.
Happy New Year and a safe and healthy 2018 to all of you.
We even have Columbus Day and Martin Luther King ‘ s Birthday as holidays also .
Need we even mention July 4th with all those fireworks that seem to go on before and AFTER July 4th ?
Some people want to carry it a little bit too far and make Super Bowl Sunday a holiday here in the country also .
Don’t get me wrong , I love watching the game and not for all those commercials and the halftime show that seems to go on forever , but let’s not get carried away here, folks .
Super Bowl Sunday isn’t nor should it be considered a holiday .
When I was growing up , I wasn’t one of those children who couldn’t wait for Christmas just to see what I would get from Santa Claus .
Christmas still isn’t my favorite holiday .
Thanksgiving also isn’t my favorite holiday.
It was just another day to get with the family , stuff our faces and watch a lot of football .
That hasn’t changed , although instead of giving thanks , stuffing my face with a lot of food, and watching football with the family , I go over to a girlfriend’s house to do the same thing .
Then, as now, January 1st , New Year’s Day will ALWAYS be my favorite holiday .
Forget about the fact that everybody and their mama seems to have celebrated just a little bit too much the night before , at the time , I was too young to understand why folks would do this to themselves on this one particular day.
Now that I’m older, I’ve turned into one of those people who I wondered about when I was younger .
January 1st not only meant the start of a new year and new cities to explore on your own 30 Plus Teams Tour , but on a personal note , it’s 28 days away from my birthday !
( Yeah, it’s all about me, don’t judge.)
There’s still college football games to watch on TV , but not as many now as there was when I was growing up .
Of course , besides that Mimosa that you were having , you had to watch the Tournament of Roses Parade and check out all the floats decorated with , what else?
Lots of roses of every color .
But now, January 1st means another sporting event for me to enjoy.
The National Hockey League has their annual outdoor game called The Winter Classic , which for the past couple of years has been held every January 1st .
Some things just haven’t changed on my favorite holiday .
