Happy Twenty Ten All!

Well I’m glad that’s over… 2009 good riddance and looking forward to a more prosperous New Year for 2010. This year I spent the New Year’s celebration with friends. If I can get a hold of the pictures I’ll forward along; I may censor the dirty tiger pics, but that remains to be seen. This …
