Another Year Another Wiggle

i am not a real big believer in new years celebrations, driving drunk across the living room in my GI Joe Hummer is not a pleasant site - i might get pulled over by the dog, get a sniffalyser - the cat would mock me from her sofa'd perch.

why am i to put a lot of stock anyway in some date set by  gregorian monks 1700 years ago?  i heard they were all winos.

uncle freddie last night said:  "those new years resolutions, Sammy?  they're all crap"

but as am wont to do, i've had a chance to reflect and think about my attitude, the things i value most, like my chewed up plastic spoon, the super secret shiny wrapper collection under da sofa; the ice cream sandwich behind the clothes dryer - it's still there, nobody's pilfered it yet...

and i realize i really do have a lot to be grateful for

i've made it another year without actually doing anything important - which is vitally important. i'd hate to think that my reputation for napping was ever impinged

uncle freddie's getting grumpier, and older, and more feeble, but i am grateful for him shaping me into the ferret i am today, an honor to share a tea with him 

the dog didn't really enjoy her bowling ball i got her for Christmas last year, so this year, i gave her a frying pan.  she stared at me with those loving eyes, and I got a lick - that was impressive

the cat, well, let's just say i am grateful for the cat by paying it forward.  that one's on faith.

which pretty much goes for the pet human, i think it has issues, it will probably never really be much use to anyone without me; so i am grateful for the opportunity to be in charge, and keep everything in order.

lastly, i am grateful that i still believe in magic - the best things in life are what we decide to believe in;  and that i can still choose to be happy - no matter how many obstacles come my way.

  3. You always make me smile, Sammy. Thank you. Happy New Year! Here's to a 2013 full of naps, snuggles, and dancing. :)

  4. You saved the best for last, as always you lead us all along your interesting tale to the final moment of wisdom.
    May 2013 be a happy adventure filled year, when your talents for sock pilfering while increasing the stock of shiny wrappers under "da" sofa find new levels of success.
    On reflection I believe your supreme mastery of the "da" nap will see the year end with your position as a "da" World Master unchallenged.~~wiggle~~ & snuggles always @Suetandt

  5. Happy New Year SAMMY to YOU and all YOUR FAMILY! xoxo luv -g-ma your friend @grammakaye on twitter.

  6. you know Sammy, I don't think all those resolutions are crap. What about the resolution to eat more pop tarts? And maybe finally build that pop tart fortress you've been dreaming of... but Cheers to Magic! I believe in it too!
