You know, when I retired mid-year 2017, I thought I have lots of time to blog, and I did. What I overestimated was my commitment to doing so. There are a lot of reasons for this, and none of them are worth discussing now.
I've toyed with the idea of shuttering the Gazette, but I keep coming back to the fact that I really do enjoy the writing aspect, as well as the interaction with those of you who are kind enough to
waste spend some of your precious time on these pages. So, heading into what will be the 17th year of the Gazette, I will try to be more faithful in sacrificing pixels to the divine deity of doofus doggerel. [Note: This is NOT a New Years Resolution. It's purely coincidental, timing-wise. Really. Probably. Possibly.]
Anyway, we've made it through a challenging year, and my wish for you is that you and yours enjoy a health, happy, and prosperous 2019. And keep using those Oxford commas!
P.S. Y'all are the best!
