Should Auld Acquaintance...

Much like Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally, I don't really get that song. However, if someone asked me to describe what the song means to me, I would just refer them to our beloved Crappers. (A friend who only dropped by on Beast Blogging days once asked me if that wasn't kind of mean, calling the readers "Crappers"?  I tried to explain how whenever the target of a post by s.z. or Scott would show up in the comments, they'd inevitably try to shut us down with the old "this blog is aptly named World O' Crap," -- so often, in fact, that when Scott and s.z. held a poll to see what we should call ourselves, "Crapper" was the clear, bird-flipping winner.  Scott informs me, just for the record, that the Continental-sounding "Crapier" came in at number two.)

I want to echo Scott's comments and add my own words of gratitude. This past couple of months has been a roller coaster of emotions. There are days when I feel like I have lost too much, and then there are days when I realize that classic and yet, somehow kind of crappy Xmas movie It's A  Wonderful Life really got it right when they said, "Remember...: no man is a failure who has friends." I'm kind of assuming the same goes for a woman.

Much thanks for all your support in this last year. Now, let's kick 2014's butt outta here and hope for better times for 2015--for us all!

Moondoggie's one hope is that I never, ever, put a hat of any kind on his head, ever again.

Yes, yes, and yes.
2014 was a suck of a year-- found out by accident(doc ran a blood test that came back positive) that I have this autoimmune neurological thing. That was just the biggest suck. But you are right, Mary, you are rich when you have friends. My friends have lifted me, held me when I cried, listened to me at 2 am. I'm so damn thankful for them. And Reverend Swank(does anyone know if he's still around?)

Much Love from
