Happy New Year

La Multi Ani 2008I want to thank all the Bits & Pieces readers and those who comment on the posts…especially the clever ones.  I wish I could think as well as some of you when I’m coming up with captions.   I want to especially thank all the people who publish posts on their websites where I steal borrow the material I use.  If they didn’t do the hard work I wouldn’t have anything to post… except more pictures of my motorcycle rides.

We’re approaching 3.9 million hits on Bits & Pieces.  That alone is just unbelievable to me.  I sincerely thank you.

I’m going to a new Years Eve party tonight that is featuring Tom Hemby with a local  band – Triple Play.  He and the band leader are lifelong friends.  Mr Hemby, an acoustic guitarist,  is a Grammy winner and has four Dove Awards.  I’m looking forward to his music…. and the rest of the band.

 I hope you all have a safe and fun New Years Eve.    I’ll be back “next year” with more Bits & Pieces.    Happy New Year!
