New Year’s Eve is upon us and 2015 is coming whether we like it or not. Who is to say, I guess.
I just wanted to very briefly say thanks for stopping by here sometimes and say thanks to all of you who have taken the time to post a comment, send an email, or even call to discuss, debate, seek advice or offer counsel.
I appreciated it all. Even when I disagreed with you.
Earlier this month I marked without fanfare the 9th anniversary of doing this blog. It has been a learning experience for me every step of the way. It’s actually harder than it looks and frankly I don’t do it all that well anymore.
Today is my final post — certainly for a while, and perhaps forever.
All good things etc etc.
There are lots of excellent blogs out there for you to enjoy. On my best day, this was never one of them and I feel even my low bar for entertaining and informing has slipped ever lower.
That being the case it is time to walk away. I’d like to say it was like John Elway celebrating consecutive Super Bowl wins and then retiring but it’s more like Drew Bledsoe.
Thanks to everyone who read this space. You guys were the meat in the sandwich. I was just a thick-thumbed community typist trying to tell a few stories.
Have a great year. I’ll see you at the rink. Hug the kids.
