    My resolution is to forgive the neighbors who are making truly unnecessary amounts of noise and scaring my cats. It may in fact take all year to achieve, wish me luck.

    Gerry Goffin and Michael Masser: Do You Know Where You’re Going To?

    Do you know where you’re going to?

    Have you decided the things that you’re gonna do?

    What are you gonna do?

    Do you know?


    Are you gonna eat the Big Red Couch?

    Are you gonna run and climb and never slouch?

    Are you gonna just hang out?

    Do you know?


    A new year has begun,

    A time for new adventures and having fun,

    The ball has dropped again, and you can see,

    The year is loaded with challenges and opportunities!


    Do you know where you’re going to?

    Have you decided the things that you’re gonna do?

    What are you gonna do?

    Do you know?


    It’s alright to just nap

    Or fight for the Humans’ lap,

    Climbing to the top of the fridge

    The challenge it can be,

    Adding to your workout is a lofty goal as you can see!


    Do you know where you’re going to?

    Have you decided the things that you’re gonna do?

    What are you gonna do?

    Do you know?

    I like that Ora Zella’s resolution is ambitious, yet also realistic. One bite at a time is the only way to eat a couch.♥

    If ya want it eat the couch

    But save some stuffing in a pouch

    For next Thanksgiving dinner’s turkey

    And don’t try a bite even if it sounds quirky

    Of the spring core or your theeth go “ouch”

    My resolution is to ‘stop and smell the flowers’, do not little things get to me. It is easy to handle the big things, it is not as easy to handle the little nagging, annoying things or people. It is not worth the effort or sleepless nights. I will not let (fill in the blank) get to me. I will not allow (fill in the blank) have control over me. I feel so much better already.Happy, healthy, enjoyable new year to all. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments, shared experiences and stories. I have learned so much about cats from you.

    On the board in the break room, we write up polls and questions just for fun. The current one is about New Year’s resolutions. This time I was the first to answer, and I wrote that I will learn to finish a book before starting a new one. Later on our branch manager said to me, “You work in a library, you should be reading three books!”

    I swear, it’s the best and worst job for me, LOL.

    All New Year resolutions are doomed to be forgotten, usually in a matter of days. Perhaps Elvis will show an exception to this rule.

    Off-topic: So long and thanks to those who have been appreciative.

    Over the last severaly years, I have spent a lot of time contributing humorous “riffs” on Georgia Dunn’s wonderful comic strip, cat stories with a little learned wisdom and the occasional simple opinion. I enjoyed doing so because it reminded me of the couple of years I was a professional comedy writer on a daily basis.

    However – there is always an “However” – it’s just not fun anymore . The constant deluge of increasingly meaningless Notifications is taking up a lot of time. Worse, is dealing with those few humorless people who take my comments as an invitiation to debate, call me names and practice “last wording”. I do not debate people with no apparent qualifications in an unmoderated forum.

    There is a community here, which I hope continues to work for all of you. While I will continue to follow Georgia Dunn’s beautifully drawn and cunningly plotted comic strip, I will not be contributing further

    Happy New Year!

    I am glad we got the resolutions as I mentioned yesterday. I am not sure I will adopt any for myself, although Elvis’ does have merit. I think my favorite detail is the bird’s hat in the second-to-last panel.

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    Queen Catshepsut the Golden: Welcome one and all to the annual New Year welcome. I would like to extend a formal welcome to our new friends Ignatius Shipwright and Ora Zedd, as well as Iggy’s cousin Ziggy and the captain and crew of the good ship Red Planet Spider.

    Ora: Thank you, Your Majesty. It is a great honor to be a part of your wonderful Royal Household.

    Iggy: I am pleased to be able to sail with Fresh and Salty on the Nile. I’ve missed sailing ever since I had my accident.

    Ziggy: In a way, the storm that brought the Red Planet Spider here was a blessing in disguise. I’ve met some lovely artisans, and was able to reconnect with my spider friends Arachna and Petros Parkhour.

    Arachna: Pete and I have reconvened the Red Planet Spiders for a special New Year’s treat. Hit it!

    Ziggy: Ziggy played guitar

    Jamming good with Pete and Ari

    And the Arachnids from Red!

    He played as best he could

    But then he realized

    Guitars hadn’t been invented yet!

    But he was really sharp

    And he learned the harp!

    He just found it one day

    And began to play.

    He tried to find out where the harp came from,

    But no one ever told.

    The Queen: And now we will get out the nap cushions. But first, Lupinium will conclude the banquet with a New Year’s Thwump!

    Mother Nature had different plans for me last night. We walked out of the community room and almost fell on our butts. We got freezing rain. So I just went back to my apartment and relaxed. We did have a lot of fun at the party. Good snacks and a 6 handed Uno game

    The look on Elvis’ face, too precious for words. And Ora Zella, trying to eat the sofa, “one bite at a time”, the “climbing of the fridge”. All so precious.

    I love every panel of this strip, but I especially adore the little bird with her cozy red hat.

    Anyone know the type of bird?

    Making Near Year’s resolutions. Bah! I haven’t made one of those in over twenty years. In fact my last New Year’s resolution was to no longer make New Year’s resolutions. Easiest resolution to keep because it means not having to care about making them. Which one is most likely to break within a few weeks of making the things anyway.

    All happy resolutions for our pals.. I hope they all reach their goals. Except Lupin. He needs more sleep. Unless he’s finally evolved beyond sleep in which case their all doomed. But I especially hope the baby children eat that horse er couch and climb that mountain er fridge respectively.
