Happy New Year!!!
My New Years resolutions: Keep my eyes closed during a roller coaster ride, don't leave my crayons in the sun, use dental floss every day, don't throw trash on the ground when you are walking on Mars, don't spill hydrochloric acid on my shoes, always knock before entering a barn, don't let dinosaurs get in the sugar, never volunteer to do any extra dental work, always get my seat before the cat does, eat more chocolate, and feed my stomach whenever it's hungry.
New Years day was very bad. We had a bad storm go through with what is thought to be a tornado touched down in town. The excessive heavy rain was overwhelming. My gutters could not handle it and they overflowed running into my basement. I had to get and set up several sump pumps, which I did have on hand. At the same time there is a drain that comes out at the end of the driveway that is a drain for my basement. The mud had stopped this up. I was out there, in the rain, trying to dig that out and sliding all over the place in the mud, it was all up and down my leg, man. If your wife ever picks up a rain poncho somewhere because it was on sale, think providence. Because several years later you may need it, as was our case.
I had the water out by about midnight and was able to get my furnace going.
My Family and I decided that January 1st was not New Years day. We would like to forget that day. We chose Sunday as New Years day even though it was the 2nd.
Hope everyone has had a very Happy New Year!!!
