    More than forty years ago I made a New Year’s resolution to never again make a New Year’s resolution and I’ve kept it ever since. So no resolution again this year.

    Author, and all you J&M fans:

    A happy new year to Author and to all regulars at the old Cock & Bull pub!

    Author: another nice little joke! Please keep churning them out.

  3. A wonderfully subtle punch line to start off the decade, Author. To you, and all my friends at the Cock and Bull, may the coming year bring health, happiness, achievements, and prosperity. Oh yes, and love. Must not forget love. I’m optimistic, despite the current state of affairs in the world. We’ve seen worse, eh.
    My motto for 2020 is: “Try not to panic”. (The frog inside me that I somehow swallowed whole tends to leap around madly whenever I consider my future.)

    DH – “Don’t panic” is always a good philosophy. All the best for a guid New Year tae yin an a’ from Scotland. And for those Boomers out there like me, remember, you’re only old once, so don’t waste your time – get out there and do it.

    Have a Happy New Year everyone! (To be taken in both the optative and imperative moods).
