And please take good care of yourselves! I will be back to visit you all in the new year.

Josie,

Yes, I like your style too. It is flawless. Happy New Year.

p.s.

A little s.o.s over here.

I have a new computer, a compaq.
Does it have its own modem right in the unit? I have used and old modem and succeeded in knocking myself off the internet.

O Didus Ineptus, as in Dodi%%%%*&^%$$#@!

Just read on Rusell's blog that you had an accident. Hope you are okay, and that with a little rest you'll be fine again. Don't go out and celebrate with a concussion!

Country Girl said...

I just arrived from Russell's blog, too. So glad to hear that you're doing better. That must have been some fall! Take care now.

Donnetta Lee said...

And a happy, happy New Year to you, too! D

willow said...

Happy 2009 to you, too, Johanna! Just heard from Russell about your little mishap. Hope your are feeling better, dear bloggy friend.

Bobbie said...

Goodness, that sounds like quite the fall you had! Make sure you take it easy and follow the doctor's orders.

p.s. to Jo:

Eureka!

Right on New Year's Eve and I finally got my modem plugged into my Compaq, where it should actually be plugged in--not in my monitor...Yikes!

For a while there I was like the young reporters from Princeton and Toronto--ovewhelmed at their own incompetence at the big leagues of the Toronto Star newspaper...Had to think on your feet, PhD or no.
Well, I passed that apprenticeship, but computers really had me going there for a while. Especially when I would hide my typewriter in fear that I would lose all my copy in cyberspace.
And it did happen once or twice.
Well. Finally, by George, I think I have hooked up my new computer properly.
Whew.
To paraphrase Allen Ginsburg, my brain was a smoking tomb there for a while.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Jo!

Annie in Austin said...

Happy New Year, Josie - and may you heal quickly. Sydney Australia has already set off fireworks as 2009 works its way around the earth...guess we'll celebrate New Years in Texas a couple of hours before the fireworks in Vancouver.

Enjoy your break.

Dr.John said...

Sorry to read about your fall. I am always afraid of ice in the winter.
Have a much better New Year.

Be well Jo and may the fires of the past 365 be only warmth for the next.

Carolyn said...

Jo, I discovered your blog via Russell's Iowa Grasslands, and am sorry to hear of your fall. It sounds like a scary experience.

Wishing you all the best for a speedy recovery and for 2009.

Cheers from Sydney.

Russell said...

I join the rest in wishing the happiest of new years!

I am still sort of wondering if the stories about all that snow and ice are really true - or if they are just made up to keep those pesky tourists away! Heh! (Okay, I know the stories are true but with such beautiful country surrounding you I would not blame Vancouver for trying to keep a bit of the city for themselves!)

Have a great New Year! I have a feeling you are not going to spend the day in front of your TV set watching college football bowl games and drinking beer!

Maybe a glass of wine and a vintage movie...!

Happy New Year, sweet Josie! Onward toward adventure! :)
