Dear Madame Zoltar
Who's going to take care of our ailing Green Bay Packers? The Arizona Cardinals made fools out of them this Sunday past. There's only one game left in the regular season to play. This Sunday, January 3 at 7:30 pm, our vaunted Packers will host the Minnesota Vikings. Watch for the sparks to fly during this one.
Speaking of next year, Happy New Year! Now don't imbibe too much over the long weekend. It just makes you hungover and wondering who you insulted.
Are you making any New Years resolutions? My resolution is to grow younger, though I haven't the faintest idea of how to do it. I'm tired of creaky bones and achy joints. I can take any of a number of Madame Zoltar® products to ease my pain, but they don't last. So then I have to take more and more, like an addict. I want a permanent fix, like Calgon all of the time. I'll take the exuberance of youth over the wisdom of old age any day.
I sincerely hope that next year is an improvement over last. What if everyone fighting wars all over the globe just dropped their weapons and went home? What if mass murderers talked to a psychiatrist before going on a rampage? What if wife beaters and kid beaters and dog beaters sought help before beating someone up? What if, what if. It will take the Lord's help to accomplish any of those things. He has to enter the hearts of the abusers, brawlers, and killers. Unfortunately, that doesn't usually happen until these malcontents are sitting in prison. Still, I hope and pray for peace. You can kill people, but you can't kill prayers.
Thank you, my dears, for reading my blog today. I love visitors and I appreciate the time you take to read my scribblings. Best wishes for the New Year to you all.

Please be very careful driving on winter roads. Patches of ice and other obstacles can appear suddenly. Stay warm and take care of yourselves. You're the only you I have. I love you all.
