A few hours to go until the new year…
To be honest, I don’t know how much of this one I’ll remember later on down the road, as I’m not particularly good at recalling events in time. (I’m the one who shows up to your doorstep the day after your party holding out a bottle going, “Where is everyone?”) Far in the future, I’m sure I’ll think of the pandemic as belonging to 2020, even though it’s still going on and doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon.
So what will stand out about 2021? Oh. Wait. No. No. We won’t talk about that.
How about this instead: 2021, my short story gets published. Yay! It’s actually already out for After Dinner Conversation subscribers, and it seems it will be coming out soon on Amazon:
On another note, here’s this year’s X-mas lights dog walk. I finally got around to making a movie out of all the footage I collected. Unfortunately, I couldn’t use the Tula Mic I got for Christmas, but hopefully we can all look forward to better sound quality from my little movies in the future.
Well, I’m glad Geordie got to go on the walk this year and that he got to open a few presents early (as you’ll see in the movie), because two days before Christmas he tore a knee ligament and now I’m carrying him everywhere. Poor baby is taking it well, but it certainly put a damper on Christmas morning. Normally he opens his own presents (sometimes he refuses to wait his turn and absconds with his wrapped treasures to the other room to open them in privacy), but this year he could only sit and watch us open his presents for him. He played with a squeaker toy for a few seconds, then took a nap. It might not sound like much, but given what he’s going through, it’s rather inspiring.
So let’s raise a glass to Geordie Bear, and hope for a happy new year for all of us.
How about you? What will you remember about 2021?
