Welcome, Year 2009


Fred the Cat here and nice to meet you, Year 2009. We sure have been looking forward to seeing you. Your relative, Year 2008, wasn’t so nice and we didn’t mind one bit seeing it go.

I hope you brought patience with you and a lot of persistence, because you’re going to need it. You are also going to need a lot of help from everyone if you are going to be successful. We all want to be happy again and if we work together, we just might make it happen.

The good news is that in just a few days you will have some special help. You’ll have our new President working with you. He brings with him hope and change. This is the kind of hope and change that none of the last eight Years have had. They had a president fighting against goodness all along the way.

So come right in, Year 2009. We at the Pop home are so happy to see you at last. Oh, and one more thing before you get to work on the big stuff. Could you bring a new dog to our home during your term here? We would so appreciate that favor.

Sincerely,
Fred the Cat (The cat who loves you guys!)

I still think we should put the cats in charge of everything.

hi, Fred
I agree with every word you said.
and my votes are: 1] to get our Constitution back and 2] that you and the PoPs get your perfect dog.

and I'm seconding Fred: c'mon in 2009!
and will you please tell January 20 to hustle along?

Happy New Year, Fred, Pop and Mr. Pop!

Santa Paws came our way, but must have left some lame catnip, 'cause the kitties were uninspired. Go figure.
