Zelda did a reading for us this morning and she’s confident 2013 will be a fantastic year. Here’s a list of her top ten predictions. Believe me, she’s always right.
1. The Beatles will not record a new album.
2. There will be snowfall in some areas of the country. Sun will shine in others.
3. Lindsay Lohan will see time in a courtroom.
4. The rich will continue to make money. The poor…not so much.
5. Auto-tune will record a number one CD without human assistance.
7. Sometime during the year Christina Aguilera will wear a low-cut top and too much makeup.
8. Twinkies will be saved from extinction.
9. Taylor Swift will part ways with a boyfriend and will write a song about the breakup.
10. The 2013 Writers’ Police Academy will be the biggest and best ever.
So there you have it. Looks like a great year for all.
Happy New Year!
Candies, cakes, and eggnog.
Turkey, ham, and stuffing.
Family, friends, and sleeping dog on hearth.
Cedar logs sizzle.
Cookies and milk.
Laughter, giggles, and squeals.
Stockings and gifts.
Silent wishes and happy, hopeful dreams.
Wish I was there.
Pepperspray, handcuffs, and puking drunks.
Radios, shotguns, and Tasers.
Spouses abused. Battered.
Black eyes and broken bones.
Not their fault.
Dealers, robbers, and sad, pitiful kids.
No toys. Plenty of drugs.
Crack pipes burning.
No place to sleep.
No food, no heat.
Gunshots. Stab wounds.
Car crashes and suicides.
Crying, bleeding, and dying.
Ambulances, hospitals, and morgues.
Glad I have one.
*Please remember the many police officers, fire crews, rescue workers, hospital staff, and all others who work to keep us safe during the holidays.
~ By the way, please recycle, shred, or destroy your Christmas gift boxes and cartons.
Placing shiny and new empty boxes at the street for pick up is an open invitation to burglars who cruise the roads hoping to learn which families received new flat screen TV’s, computers, DVD players, video games, etc.
Once the cruising crooks see the possibility of new treasures they often return when no one is at home, or when they think everyone is sleeping, to steal the valuable items you’ve so boldly advertised as being inside the house.
If you cannot recycle or shred the cartons, wait several days before placing the empty boxes at the curb. By then the Christmas stealing season will have passed.
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
