Well, this year is about over. It was a wierd year for me. (2 heart attacks, an aneurysm, got let go from a place I had worked at for 25 years). Barely made it to Fest 2006. Not a bad diecast year though. Some dry spells. Health is fine now. Enjoyed not working the last 2 months. Diecast collection in pretty good shape. This is the reflection day for the year. So here goes.

1. Overall did you like 2006? Hate to see it end or really looking forward to 2007?

2. How did your diecast collection fare? increase or decrease.

3. What was the one best thing that happened to you in 2006?

4. What might happen in 2007 you are looking forward to?

5. What are you doing tonight?

Overall, a good year..work went well, had a couple nice vacations--a week in San Diego and a few days in Hawaii...my end of the year vacation to Paris was cancelled due to the horrible weather in Denver and other reasons. Bummed about that, but looking forward to '07.

>2. How did your diecast collection fare? increase or decrease.
Increased.

>3. What was the one best thing that happened to you in 2006?
Probably my long weekend in Hawaii...saw a great concert, had a great little trip.

>4. What might happen in 2007 you are looking forward to?
I may be moving to San Diego, and I will probably take a two-week vacation to Europe in the summer.

>5. What are you doing tonight?
A low-key party with some friends and coworkers.

5 Questions for New Years Eve

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, this year is about over. It was a wierd year for me. (2 heart attacks, an aneurysm, got let go from a place I had worked at for 25 years). Barely made it to Fest 2006. Not a bad diecast year though. Some dry spells. Health is fine now. Enjoyed not working the last 2 months. Diecast collection in pretty good shape. This is the reflection day for the year. So here goes.

1. Overall did you like 2006? Hate to see it end or really looking forward to 2007?

Increase--I have almost no room for my new acquisitions!

New career

5. What are you doing tonight?
Turn on the TV, watch dick clark w/ a friend, see the ball drop and say Happy New Year! Then go to sleep.
