HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE all you peoples!
I hope you and yours are surviving the holiday onslaught and are ready to celebrate in any small way you see fit the passing of the old year and decade and bring in the wishes and hopes of a new beginning. 2011 and a new decade are just around the turn of a clock and I hope all the best for all of you.
Again this week I'm foregoing our usual listening to the surviving episodes of Vic & Sade and share with you a Jack Benny show from January 2, 1944.
For quite a few years, Jack did a fantasy segment around the new year in which he played the old year needing to move on and make way for the baby new year. They were always funny and heartwarming, especially the ones performed during WWII in which he hoped all the troubles the world was going through would soon be over. He got his wish...the troubles would soon be over to make room for new troubles...but that's what we humans do. We muddle through, champion, try and fail and try and fail and try and fail until at last we succeed, only to try a new hurdle. It's what we do. And we always feel better for it.
I hope you enjoy this show, I always do. And I hope you try and succeed at whatever you set your sights on in the coming year and decade.
I'll be rooting for you.
Funny stuff, now go get drunk!
Jeffy's Angels wanted to wish you all the best too. While tats and piercings are verboten at "Ye Olde Drink Hole", body paint is always welcome. :)
Talk to you soon.
