Goodbye 2005!

I can't say 2005 was a good year for me although it did have some good times in it. I head into 2006 not knowing what it will bring as my life will be so different from the past 38+ years, my years with Annie. Time marches on and I don't have much in the way of choices, so I'll have to make the best I can out of it.

I did get to the post office yesterday and I had entered the end date wrong on my mail forwarding paperwork. I am sure glad I didn't feel good about it and checked. My poor little mail box would have been way over full long before my request to start holding my mail kicked in. I got a couple of things from the RV that I need to get loaded with things like extra food, extra cat food, etc., things that will store below in one of the basement compartments until needed. I also have a growing pile of things on my living room floor that are to go but that I don't want to put out there yet as there is no heat in the rig. I should be on the road in 3 1/2 days.

The two books I ordered Monday from Amazon.com arrived today. One is Publishing a Blog with Blogger which is the place my blog is hosted. I'll start with it as it is specific about my blog and "only" 125 pages long. The other is nearly 700 pages and on writing and using HTML and CSS, the codes used to setup web sites and blogs. It will take a bit longer to work through but also offers a lot more options, if I can learn to use it. From what I have seen so far HTML isn't too hard to use and like much computer coding a big part of the problem is knowing what you can do so you can find what you need in the book. We will see how this develops for me but it promises to be interesting.

I am getting ready to go to a New Year's Eve party here in the mobile home park where I live that is sponsored by the singles group within the park. I sure wouldn't have thought a year ago that I would qualify to belong to that group this year. A year ago Annie & I were in our RV park in Ft. Mohave, AZ and watching the events play out in the Phoenix area on TV. Our neighbors who were also with us had gone to the Avi Casino in Nevada in the hope they would have a fireworks display (they didn't) but we decided to stay home in the RV. We didn't realize I would be spending the next New Year's Eve alone.

Thanks so much for sending me your blog addy. I look forward to keeping up with your adventures. Happy new year to yourself and Huggy.
I am just a few minutes drive from Vancouver.

Thank you for answering. I have gotten a couple of contacts who have come from your blog. I hope the weather in Calif. isn't too much of a problem when I get down there, probably next Sat. If it is I guess I'll just hold up a day or two on the road and wait it out. This is going to be interesting to see how well I can do updating this blog from on the road.
