Can you believe that, as I post this, we are just a little over 24 hours away from the start of 2019? 😦
Where does the time go?
It seems like just yesterday I was overseeing this E-zine with Windows 7 while listening to either CDs or the radio.
And if you don't recognize any of those references, yes, I AM that old.
Time marches on, but many of us wish that it didn't trample us in the process.
Maybe I'll do what my father does and go to bed before midnight on New Year's Eve. That way I can wake up New Year's Day and claim I slept for a whole year. 😉
Then again, except for missing the holidays, I always thought bears🐻 and other animals had the right idea about hibernating in winter.
Yet, would you really want to sleep THAT long?
Man, getting up would be really tough.
And if you drink the stuff, imagine how much coffee you'd need to get going after such a long sleep!
You'd have to buy it by the gallon instead of the mug.
Well, if you haven't been entertained enough already, it's time for some jokes folks...
A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.
My resolution was to read more, so I put the subtitles on my TV.
I like New Year's Eve. The party🎉 confetti🎊 covers up my dandruff.
Dear Luck, can we be friends in 2019? Please?
Jenny woke up from an afternoon nap on New Year's Eve and confided to her husband Max, "I just dreamed that you gave me a diamond ring at midnight. What do you think it means?"
"You'll find out tonight," Max answered, smiling broadly.
At midnight, as the New Year arrived, Max gave Jenny a small package.
She thought it was a tad too big for jewelry and she was right.
Inside was only a book entitled The Meaning Of Dreams.
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.
A pessimist stays up until two to make sure the old year leaves.
So on that note♫, have a good week.
Please party responsibly.
Autumn the Puppy will be here next weekend with more Sunday Funnies to start 2019 off on the right paw, and I would like to leave you with a timeless and very appropriate quote from John Lennon...
A very Merry Christmas
And a Happy New Year.
Let's hope it's a good one.
Without any fear.
