Happy New Year!
I can't believe how quickly time flies. It's true that as you get older, time seems to pass exponentially faster.
It has been an interesting December for us. I was out most of the month with pneumonia - that really puts a crimp in the work schedule... and just about everything else! But thank God I am feeling much better now.
Tammi and I took today off to rest and recharge our batteries and to prepare for the coming new year. Right now we're watching the Presidential memorial service for Gerald R. Ford, a fellow Michigander.
I was only a teenager when President Ford was in office but can remember the tumultuous times that the 70's were and the major issues that he was left to deal with. (Not to mention the over-the-top fashions that we all thought were so stylish!)
I was fortunate enough to capture this image of President Ford about ten years ago at Max Fisher's 90th birthday party at the Ritz Carlton.
