Good-by 2011 it has been fun as well as hard. As with every year there have been ups and downs, births and deaths, war and peace.
Personally I have done well in 2011 and have enjoyed living the life of a retired man doing things he loves. I am grateful to have reasonably good health for a man approaching seventy. I am mostly thankful for my lovely wife who daily brings love, light and joy into my life.
