A gift from a friend

Our friend Julio was nice enough to give us 50 or so pounds of venison which Judith quickly turned some of it into a delicious meat.

Our many thanks to both of them.

My New Year's Resolution

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
