Autumn the Puppy
Waxy Dragon
"Well folks! Here we are at the start of a brand NEW year!
Three hundred and sixty-SIX days, because 2016 is a Leap Year and—"
"Say Autumn. If this is a Leap Year, what's it jumping over?" asked Waxy Dragon.

"Technically, nothing. Because calendars are inanimate objects Waxy. But a true year is actually 365 days and SIX HOURS, so they save all those extra hours and make an extra day out of them every four years," explained Autumn. "Think of it as intergalactic frequent flyer miles."

"WOW! With no blackout dates or restrictions!"

"Right. So anyway, we were trying to figure out what to do for the first Sunday Funnies of the new year, and decided to share this post. Starting with a few, appropriate celebrity quotes. As usual, my comments are afterwards in italics," said Autumn.

"Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better person."—Benjamin Franklin
Better people make a better planet, and we ALL can certainly use a better world!

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."—Edith Lovejoy Pierce
In other words folks, it's the start of a brand new year. Let's try to do things right this time!

"The coming of the new year has always been time for reflection and making plans," said Waxy. "New Year resolutions to change things about ourselves or our lives to hopefully make them better. Some will make these resolutions today, and break them by tomorrow. Below are a few suggestions for resolutions that you may want to consider.
Or not."

To save money, I will do less laundry and use more deodorant.
Then again, considering that technically neither Autumn or I wear clothes, we're already ahead of the game.

Stop repeating myself again, and again, and again.

I will not bore my boss with the same excuses for missing work.
I will think of some new ones.

Stop repeating myself again, and again, and again.

I wanted to resolve to stop procrastinating all the time. But, I think I'll wait.

And last but not least...

Stop repeating myself again, and again, and again.
"2015? Bleh!"

"Well folks," said Autumn, "here's hoping that 2016 will be a much better year than the last one. Because on the right is a statement from our Earth, in regards to what it thought of 2015!"

"And as usual, on behalf of Autumn the Puppy and myself, have a great week and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!"
