I normally pay scant attention to News Year’s Eve and the following January 1. They are simply days on the calendar marked for sharing with family and friends but otherwise of no significance.

Not this year. I am glad to see 2017 go. I am also confident 2018 will be tremendous by every measure.

If you are a New Year’s Eve celebrant, do so safely.

I’d like to launch 2018 by catching the first fish of the New Year tomorrow but with temperatures predicted to barely nip the IMG_1593teens that might be a challenge. But when is it not?

A Happy and Safe New Year to all.
