I didn’t have any reading material on my table, but I did have a bottle of antacid tablets, so I stuck my finger down in the middle of "Adults and children 12 years and over," so my word is "years," or "year" when I want it to be.
2021 is coming to a close, and soon we’ll have a new year, 2022. I’m wondering what the new year will bring. Will we finally get our arms around the whole Covid-19 thing and knock it out completely, or will we still be running around in masks and pushing the vaccines on people? I won’t hazard a guess. I think we’ll just have to wait and see what happens, I’m afraid.
This has been a good year for the Atlanta Braves, who are World Series champions for the first time since 1995. They’ve been World Champions (I know, there’s a lot more world than the northern half of the Western Hemisphere) four times, once when they were the Boston Braves (1914), once while in Milwaukee (1957), and now twice in Atlanta. Their main objective for the winter is to re-sign Freddie Freeman, the team’s All-Star first baseman, who has already stated that he’d like to stay here, but again, money talks.
Personally, I like standing here and being able to see the end of the year. I’m especially looking forward to the last week of the year, which is always our favorite. Christmas is over, New Year’s Day (and New Year’s Eve) is ahead of us, and everything is coming to a close. We never used to start anything new during the last week: we always figured "we’ll start it next year."
Enjoy what’s left of 2021…
Linda Hill sponsors Stream of Consciousness Saturday, which runs every week (more or less) over most of this same station. Now a word from Peter Paul, makers of Almond Joy and Mounds candy bars. Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t!
