Happy New Year, Galen.

Me said...

And what's this? Yahtzee TWO days in a row? Is everyone on vacation or something? ;)

moondustwriter said...

Way to go Me

Happy New Year to all!
Gosh didn't remember all those people gone this year.
Thanks to G-Man for hosting and entertaining us each week.

a farewell

Monkey Man said...

Gone but not forgotten. Funny men and beautiful women. A fine year end tribute, G.

My 55 is HERE .

hedgewitch said...

Yes, a lot of people moved on this year. Funny how we remember movie stars more than politicians--maybe because they brought us so much more pleasure?

Hey I actually wrote something on purpose to be short for this week's magpie tales--so I'm using it here too
Two Shadormas on Gloves
And no, a shadorma is not something you add on to the back of the house for more rooms.

Cheryl said...

We lost quite a crew this year. Thanks for listing a few of the most memorable.

Mine's up!

lime said...

what a terrific round up of people we shall miss and so lovely that you remembered dr. john. may they all rest in peace.

Bubba said...

We lost some good ones in 2010.

Thoughtful 55, G-Man... very appropriate for the final 2010 55.

Mine's also in the New Year's spirit!
Resolution # 55

Donnetta said...

Hi, Galen: I will miss them all. Nice tribute. My 55 is up. Better late than never! You have a wonderful New Year, my dear friend. Donnetta

secret agent woman said...

I am always surprised when I see the run-down of famous people who died - I guess I just don't pay attention to that sort of thing.

(But no tears from me for Guccione - he's one of those people who makes me wish I did believe in hell.)

Mona said...

Happy New year Galen Dear!

Jannie Funster said...

May YOURS be a face we do not say bye to for many many many many years, Galen.


I'll be in next week for a 55.

And I have a bit of a "treat" for you in my typo post this coming Monday. Something that also involves Mama Z. and Shay.

hmmmmn..... intrigued?? :)

KB said...

I miss the dragons too.

Happy New Year sweetie x

secret agent woman said...

And I also meant to say, Happy New Year's to you and your family. :-)

snowelf said...
