Oh, What a Year!
The lowlight of 2008 was having to make the decision to put my sweet Murphy to sleep. Still can’t talk about that.
The moment of highest anxiety was the night of November 4th as we awaited the election returns.
The best book I read this year was, “A Thousand Splendid Suns”, by Khaled Hosseini. This is the same author who wrote, “The Kite Runner”. I don’t think any other book emotionally affected me as this one did.
The most fun books I read this year were two by Matt Taibbi, “Smells Like Dead Elephants”, and “The Great Derangement”. Love this man’s style!
There is no best or worse movie for me this year since I did not see a single one.
One of the biggest disappointments of 2008 was the Dallas Cowboys…again and again and again, etc. I should be accustomed to it by now.
The source of the most amusement this year had to be, Sarah Palin and everything we learned about her. Okay, she was the source of some fear too.
The best part of this year has been every moment I have spent with Mr. Pop whether it was a time of laughing, crying or just his being there with me.
Finally, I want to thank every single person who feels that a visit to Morning Martini each day is worth their time and effort. I appreciate that with all my heart. There have been times this year when you guys were there for me, as all good friends are, and you can never know how much that meant to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Here’s to a New and Happier Year filled with love and much more tolerance for our fellow creatures on earth, both man and beast.
Fred the Cat will see you Friday with his usual catty attitude toward life.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
