Hell Happy New Year

Several years ago, my mom called my grandma on New Years Day. My grandma picked up the phone, wanting to say "Happy New Year," but reflexively saying "Hello." What came out was "Hell Happy New Year." It has been our family's greeting for this day ever since. So, on this New Years Day, let me wish you all a Hell Happy New Year.

And as long as we are talking about New Years traditions, I think it is time for Dick Clark to hang up his. I am the only one that thought that his appearance last night was pitiful. Someone close to him needs to not let him do that ever again! Just my two cents.

AWWCKK Dick was the topic of the morning at church with Sheri and I. I ...was watching FOX missed Dick Clark. I got the low down tho...reminded me of seeing Muhammed ALI..actually at the Alma IGA parking lot years ago. His buddy was opening I think Young's Gym...and he was there. Wow..he was just a SHell.
I have a deal with some friends..I dont want to be like that.."Just Pillow me". COmes from working in a Mental Institution I guess.
I don't want to waste away..I don't want to "burn Out"..is it bad if I say mostly I just want to be left alone?? LOL
HELL RIght back to ya.

Part of me felt bad for Dick - not much he can do about the condition he is in.

Another part of me thought that is was the funniest ending to a year that I have ever experienced - my attention has never been so glued to the little countdown clock as when Dick was stumbling his way through the last twelve seconds of 2005. How many ticks did he hit? Out of twelve, maybe he got 3? That was funny.

Like I said, I don't want to make fun of the guy, but I thought it was hilarious. There is so much humor here . . . but I will exercise some restraint.

I do hope they bring him back for next year. You can bet I will be watching.

it wasn't the real dick clark anyways, so why feel bad? what you saw was a "pod" for scientific experiementation.
