As we approach the coming New Year,
And the Old one is fading away.
We think of getting our butts in gear,
And, building for a better day.
Oh Yes, we could be quite satisfied,
With what we’ve done in the year that's past.
But maybe not, and we’re fit to be tied,
And our bad luck, has left us aghast.
Whatever our perspective on what has occurred,
While there’s life there’s always some hope.
That we can improve to the extent we’ve erred,
And get on the downside of the slope.
So now, for the required resolutions,
If we even bother with that stuff.
As if that’s a useful solution,
For a year that’s been kind of rough.
“I resolve to shoot more bullets,”
And enjoy those guns I’ve got.
So I need to get me, some components,
But the stores don’t have them in stock.
I need to have more hunting time,
And, other outdoor recreation.
But what can I, afford on a dime,
When gas is so high in the nation?
There’s so many obstacles to overcome,
That will challenge my success.
Should I then, give up like some?
I wonder if that, might be the best.
Perhaps I’d be much further ahead,
If I would put the resolutions aside.
And concentrate on This Forum, instead,
Because, last year was quite a ride.
After all, there’s folks who count on me,
To complicate their very existence,.
With all my barking up the wrong tree,
And doing it with such insistence.
I’ve valued the answers to questions I’ve asked,
And gave some from my own point of view.
I’ve mostly agreed, but differed and fussed,
As any True “Gun Guy”, would do.
I could have bugged a lot of you men.
I’m sure I’ve made some friends too.
No matter the position, in which you’ve been,
I Wish,,, a “Happy New Year” to YOU.
