Friday 55

What better way to celebrate the New Year than by conjuring up a Friday 55? Play nice and let the G-Man know if you wrote a story in 55 words. Probably the easiest thing anyone will ask you to do today. Now, y'all kindly pass the pork chops and the blacked eyed peas.


“You know,” she continued as he listened patiently. “You didn’t have to buy gifts, wrap stuff or cook. No one criticized your dinner menu or argued about politics. You never make New Year’s resolutions. And you’re happy.”

“So this year, I resolve to be laid back. Like you,“ she concluded, scratching her grinning dog’s belly.



From our laid back kids to you,
here's wishing you all the best for 2010!

Good Happy New Year's morning to you, hope. This was a fun 55 to start my day. I'm glad I met you this past autumn. You're a special person, and it has been fun getting to know you.
Fondly,
Chris

Loved your 55 Hope!

Have a Kick Ass 2010...G

Look at that! Mouth open, just waiting for the ball to roll in. Yep, that's laid back all right.

Thom said...

What a smart dog. We both did dog stories this week. How's that :) Hau’oli Makahiki Hou to you and your family :)

A belated merry Christmas and a happy new year.
I hope it is a wonderful year for you x

steven, if ours get any more laid back they'll be in a coma. :) But they're happy and it's contagious.

Brian, your 55s are always a treat! Hope the new year is good to you and yours.

enchantedoak, I probably owe the G-man lots for all the nice people he's helped me meet with these 55s. Happy 2010!

Akelamalu, it just seemed like a better idea than my past results with resolutions. I enjoy reading your 55s!

G-man, you've add a lot of fun and happiness to my year with these stories...a challenge that I actually enjoy. So THANK YOU! Best to you and yours for a great new year!

Alice A.: the funny thing is one will pick up the ball, the other will try to take it out of his mouth and they'll just stand their: stalemate, half a ball a piece.

Thom, I'm still reading. But dogs are so much easier to deal with than some people. You're good people. :)

Barman! You're alive! Best wishes to you for a much better year than last year...I think we all wanted to kick 2009 in the butt before it got out the door!

Susan Anderson said...

Smart dog! Thanks for visiting mine. I too don't do resolutions. I'm just trying to be a better me, LOL. Well, maybe... Happy New Years!

I wanna be just like that pooch!

If there's one thing I learned from last year it's that worrying is not in the least bit productive! So, my mission for the future is to be more layed-back, easy going, and an all round fun person. And to stop pondering over things of which I have no control!

A happy and fun future to you my friend, and Himself, and all who are dear to you.

Damn, you are so bloody good at these hope.

A happy new year to you matey. Been a pleasure getting to know you over these last few months. And you have given me some pretty sound advice as well, so I thank you for that.

May your 2010 be a super one!

hope said...

Susan A...resolutions just make me feel pressured. Why do that to yourself? :)

Thanks Map! Yeah, those 2 dogs who believe they are people have the right idea. First thing they do in the morning is greet us, then want to play. I could use more play, less worry meself. I'll pass on your good wishes to Himself...although we're pooped after a day of "home improvement"!

Dan you have put the laughter in a rather rotten year and I thank YOU for that. Isn't it fun to have buddies who are nonjudgmental and stand up for you, sight unseen? ;)

LOL What a superb wrap-up to the holidays! You've got a good, wise friend.
