I am not planning on doing end-of-year or end-of-decade (the latter won't happen until next year anyway) posts. It's just another day here, wet and soggy (100% chance of precipitation and sure enough, it's raining buckets out there). OTOH, if I can finish this report I'm trying to write, I might be able to knock off early so we can go to Stayton and buy groceries. And because I've been keeping pretty early hours -- not as early as I'll have to keep starting Monday morning! -- I may not even be up late enough to see in the new year in this time zone. I'm sure the usual suspects shooting fireworks and guns at midnight will let me know that it's arrived, though.
