"But ah'm not afraid of dyin'. Cause I know that when I get to heaven there are gonna be these wonderful trees, and ah'm gonna climb them. But you know what? Instead of leaves and flowers, those trees are gonna have fried eggs, and delicious Virginia ham, and big heaping bowls of biscuits and sausage gravy. And one day, Sammy, you're gonna meet me there, and we're gonna climb those breakfast trees together, and it's gonna be delicious and we're gonna be happy until the end of time."



I'm at the beach and I have 13% battery power left. Just wanted to drop in and say how wonderful it was to see everyone over the holidays, and thank everyone who came out to my myriad of get-togethers and shindigs. As always I wish I could have spent more time with everyone, but it was good nonetheless.
I thought about writing a wrap-up of last year, but the majority was terribly depressing. Not a good year, but when I look back some of the best things that have ever happened to me happened in spite of all the bad stuff. You know who you are.
Here's to a better year. I ate black-eyed peas for the first time in a decade so I've got my hopes up.
