Happy New Year-2011

It makes sense to think about our life and what we can do to make it better. The concept of a fresh start in a brand new year is the perfect opportunity to ponder what we want to change. Many people have already made their list.

Of course, typical resolutions are getting in shape (we'll be bombarded with diet and fitness ads), getting organized (sales of plastic containers will go through the roof), and lining up finances (books on money management and tax programs abound). If the new year doesn't do anything else, it certainly helps the economy.

When I look at my list of resolutions from last year, I must admit I fell a little short. Okay, I didn't stick with any of them. But not to worry. Instead of beating myself up over 2010, I intend to resurrect my resolutions. I'll keep on trying in 2011. And isn't that what setting goals is all about?

Meanwhile, Indy and Bogey had no difficulty setting up their priorities.

Indy plans to:

1. Look for opportunities to eat more.
2. Spend daily time in Mom's lap.
3. Bark louder at squirrels and all other intruders.
4. Take more naps.

Bogey plans to:

1. Find better hiding places.
2. Find new ways to sneak outside.
3. Stand in the middle of everyone else's business at all times.
4. Take more naps.

Somehow, I think they'll both be pretty successful.

Happy New Year to all our Critter Alley readers! May 2011 bring happiness and blessings beyond belief!

Hi Pat :-)

Happy New Year From Southern California.

Don't forget to watch the 122nd Rose Parade on New Year's Day coming from Pasadena, California...only 30 miles from The Old Geezer's home :-) If you miss the live telecast, I'm sure there will be lots of reruns through out the day.

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy today, mix good cheer with friends today enjoy it and bless God for it. ~Henry Ward Beecher

May God Bless and Protect You in the Year to Come. ~Ron

Maybe we should take a leson from our pets...they seem to know how to follow through. I think I will take a new look at my list and make some changes...
Lets see, eat more cheese, drink more wine, take more naps.
Oh, this is more like it! Thanks Pat!

If you look at your pets' goals, they are pretty much planning to have more fun, spend more time with family, get outside more and relax more. Pretty smart pets!

Love it. I think I must be part dog or cat. These resolutions are right up my alley.

Those dogs have the right idea! Although I vow to get in shape every year, I really need to follow through and work out now!
