Really Awful Year


'I'm telling you ...' (Spotted Eagle Owl taken at Illovo.)

‘I’m telling you …’
(Spotted Eagle Owl taken at Illovo.)

To two-oh-one-four, cheerio,

You are now in the past,

I am not sad to see you go,

And disappear at last,

Though Goodyear may be tyre, some,

And happy courses tread,

That No-Good Year was diresome,

Plus tiresome, with dread!

So comes alive two-oh-one-five,

And we sincerely trust

That it will strive to bring alive

A time more upper-crust,

Where leaders will act better-bread,

And not just knead the dough;

Where flour-ring to rise is sped,

Not half-baked, slow, no-show.

An uplifting example - grandkids on an outing yesterday.

An uplifting example – grandkids on an outing yesterday.

    Just like you, I have seen 2014 go with no regrets. Worst year ever. Let me wish you then a great New Year, or at least a little better than 2014. It shouldn’t be that difficult. πŸ˜‰ Stefy.
