As I reflect on this last blog of 2022, I’m happy for one thing to see the general passing of the masks. (Though the Evil Princess probably wishes I had kept wearing mine, if only because it makes me better looking … )
I plan to spend the evening indoors; in the town near where I live, there’s always irresponsible gunfire into the air at the stroke of midnight on the New Year. I want a roof between me and the bullets that inevitably follow the law of gravity. Yes, I saw the Mythbusters thing which prognosticated that falling spent bullets would be too feeble to cause harm. Unfortunately, the bullets don’t watch Mythbusters. I’ve been to homicide schools where we saw the slides of the corpses with bullet holes in the top of their skulls from that stupid crap.
The EP and I (and our rescue dog Alba) wish you all a happy, prosperous, and peaceful 2023.
The tradition of New Year’s Resolutions? I don’t have much to offer in that regard, but please post here your resolutions, thoughts, and predictions for the coming year.
