A Sweet Ending...

 
I love this image, which is from:

I wasn't planning (how many times have I said that in the past little while) on doing any more posts this year, but I couldn't not do this one. As I've said before I don't see big bro that much anymore. But this just made my day, and perhaps my year. Aged father had gone to meet up with him and just came back with an actual wrapped present for me. Shocked I was. It is not that I was expecting a present at all... it was that it was actually WRAPPED! When I opened it... a 2011 Canadian Army Calendar. I didn't even know there was such a thing. This might be the coolest present ever. (And I'm pretty old to be saying that at this time in my life.) Funny thing... I haven't had need of a calendar at home for about three years now, but I know this coming year I will have to change that...

Happy NEW Year one and all.
Happy is entirely up to us, and 
sometimes that is the toughest part.

I just wanted to clarify that yes, I called this post "A Sweet Ending", but the first image is titled "Mourning Athena". I am aware of this, and we shall leave it at that.

Wow ~ a wrapped gift from your brother. Now that's cool! Shows some thought and time went into the gift making it especially nice. Happy New Year Spockgirl, look forward to your future blogs. ~J.~

Happy New Year J!
Even more amazing than it being wrapped was that he knew I would appreciate the gift itself. The images in the calendar aren't just photographs, which I may expound on in the future.

Have yourself a couple good days off eh!

Brothers and sister have a way of making each other feel special. More so than almost any other relative. I experience it with my sib.
Happy 2011
