Well, boys and girls, another year goes into the vault. I, for one will be glad to see the back of this one. It hasn't been bad, but it hasn't exactly been great either. My shoulder injury was the high/lowlight of my 2011. Thanks be to God and the good folks at Tri-State Orthopedic, I have about 85-90% of my range of motion back. And considering how big the tear was (2.5-3 inches), that's about as good as it'll get. I'll take it.
God has been good to me in more ways than I can count, and more than I deserve. I pray for continued health, happiness, and success for myself, and those crazy enough to read this mess. This year brought the lowest number of posts ever in the short and rather obscure history of the Moonlight Scribbler. I don't know whether that means that the days of this blog are numbered or not. I really hope not. This little project is one of the few things that I've really stuck to doing in my life, and I don't want it to be snuffed out by apathy or indifference. This is my little corner of the Internet, such as it is, and unlike the house I live in, I'd like for it to stay reasonably well maintained. At least, let people know that someone lives here.
2012 will bring more trees to shake and more horses and little children for me to scare, and I hope it brings all of yinz what you want and most importantly, what yinz need. There will be all sorts of interesting, weird, crazy, spooky, and bizarre stuff to happen in the next 366 days (remember,kids, 2012 is a leap year) and God willing, I'll be writing about some of it.
I leave you with my usual New Year's Eve declaration. May your 2012 be a damn sight better than your 2011. See you on the other side...Pierre
