New Years Tidings

Hello everyone, glad you could come by. Well here it is New Years Eve and another year has flown by. Seems like this one just got started, I guess the old saying is true, the older you get the faster they go. Well that's fine by me, at least they're still going. I thought maybe 2008 would be the year for a cure for PH but it didn't happen, oh well I'm sure 2009 will be fine. This year has been a real learning experience for me about Pulmonary Hypertension, I've learned more about the disease this year than I have since I got the mess. Through the Pulmonary Hypertension Association I've made lots of new friends and have learned how to reach out to others as we fight together against Pulmonary Hypertension so its been a pretty good year. I'm hoping this year is even better with new medications and more research coming out for us PH'ers.
Well tonights the night of the "Poverty Hill Bonfire." Every New Years Eve we have a big cookout and a big bonfire here on the Hill. There will be fireworks galore, good country cookin, and maybe a little firewater for the drinkers. Not much though until later because of the kids. The kids love it, all the fireworks, music, and marshmellows cooked over the fire. All the ahhhhhhhh's and oooohhhhhh's.
Laffin, I guess I'll spend all day tomorrow cleaning up the Hill, but it all worth it.
I mostly wanted to tell everyone "Happy New Year" and I hope you each have many more. Guess I better run for now, I still gotta haul more firewood for the bonfire.
Yall come when ya can the door is always open.

Hugz N Handshakes

How I wish I lived in your "neck of the woods" because I would crash this party. It sounds like a lot of fun. Enjoy the food, family, friends, and fireworks for me.

I'd be with Nancy, crashing the party if we lived closer!! lol I hope you have a great time! It's so cold here, so I'm just gonna hang out in my warm living room with some nice fleece blankets and ring in the New Year with some sparkly grape juice! Happy New Year, my phriend! Please tell Miss Judi the same!!
