A few minutes ago I awoke with a start and, after getting my bearings and establishing the time, realized I hadn’t missed publishing today’s post after all. What a relief!

It would have been a bad way to start off the new year. Yes, new year. Today is the Runic New Year.

You can read all about it at https://wandervogeldiary.wordpress.com/2010/11/28/runic-new-year/. I wrote about it last year… so no need to repeat myself.

This afternoon I drove into town to do some banking and buy a few supplies. I was returning home at 4:30 when I thought to myself, “What the hell. It’s the New Year,” turned the car around, and drove to the Starlight for 2-4-1 burger night.

“Live it up, Dan.”

I opened the place at 5:00, was the first customer at the bar, blew twenty bucks on three scotches, a burger (and one to go), plus tips… and I was out the door and on the road by 6:30, home by 7:15, and asleep in the chair by 8:00.

Holy shit. I’ve entered the Geritol set. All I need is a white belt and matching shoes. Next thing you know, I’ll be streaming Lawrence Welk re-runs.

Oh, no. This just isn’t right.

    Good on ya Dan!! You must be completely well again mate. This is the most “upbeat” I have heard you being for a long time. Nice to see you “letting the hair down” a bit. Enjoy. Back to the “salt mines” and the reality of our lives tomorrow. Cheers. £ance.

    Huh, I had a novel attitude and sense of energy today…
    Maybe the Runic New Year was just the thing… I set a personal best this morning: Got showered and dressed and got Teddy ready, too, in just 19 minutes after getting up late. We made our ride and had a fine day.

    Blessings and good luck to you!
