Hugged in the New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I hope your year is off to a fantastic start. I have to say, so far mine's been right fine. The holiday season has certainly been a bit busier than I'm used to, so I am sorry I haven't been around to post very much lately. But I thought I better check in and say howdy and let you all know I'm alive and well and survived the holiday season.

I hope you had plenty of good memories to toast to on New Year's Eve and were surrounded by people important to you, or at the very least were with people who were fun!

I have no New Year's kiss to report, but I was surrounded by loved ones -- family and friends -- and got some great hugs! I never really appreciated hugs much when I was younger. My family was not the hugging type. In fact, I must confess, I was not (and may still not be) a good hugger. Whenever I encountered a hugger I used to feel very uncomfortable and give that awkward back pat hug with my ass sticking out.

In recent years, I've learned more to appreciate and welcome hugs. I must say much of the credit for this probably goes to my daughter's family, who is a great group of huggers. So to all my friends out there who I haven't had a chance to see in far too long (and you know who you are), I wish I could have given each of you a hug for Christmas or the New Year.

Happy New Year one and all!
