Happy new year to my blog readers! Thanks for all your chiming in this last year–I’ve enjoyed getting to know you through your witty and wise comments! 2018 will be even better…we’ve got lots of good things in store.

The winner of the last photo contest (prior to Christmas) was John Dallal, for “My get up and go has got up and went.” I think that’s exactly how I’m feeling, post Christmas! John, email me and I’ll get a book sent to you.

Below is this week’s photo. It came from the Wall Street Journal’s “2017 The Year in Pictures.” When I saw it, I cracked up. Just an fyi: it was taken by the man’s wife.

Sharpen your funny bones…
