Another year closes

2006 is nearly history. It brought a lot of good things into Carol’s and my lives, and a few bad things. Since my glass is always ¾ full, I think the good far outweighed the bad.

But I also tend to look forward rather than back, so I’m eagerly anticipating 2007.

The immediate future seems VERY bright for the company I work for. Demand for our product is surging, prices are up high enough that we ought to make record profits, and we’re installing some equipment to increase production and further improve quality. Not a bad mix!

Although I lost my mother in November, the rest of my family is healthy and doing well with families of their own, and with careers and finances. I’m probably closer now to my sister following Mom’s death than I have been for a number of years, and that’s good.

Now, if I could just make some progress on my current book project; and maybe get my golf swing under control...

I hope you have a happy and safe New Years celebration, and that 2007 is filled with good things for you and your family.

Happy New Year John and Carol. I hope 2007 will be year to write the words to sell a million books and to take memorable photographs. May it be filled with love and laughter, good times, good health, prosperity and happy moments with friends and family. Happy 2007.
