Hello, and welcome again to the land of Scattered Thoughts, coming to you live from Neal Young’s Sugar Mountain! And yes, we do have barkers and colored balloons.
When last we spoke, it was 2016. Donald Trump had just won the White House, and everybody and his brother was raising hell. Negan from The Walking Dead would say, “Not cool! Not cool at all!”
I hope by now you’ve seen there was no need whatsoever for all of the hoopla. We’ve gone an entire year, and dig this, the talking heads performed admirably, no one detonated a nuclear device in anyone else’s backyard, and garbage pickup continued to be spot-on.
If you ask me, I’m putting that in the win column.
I trust you’ve fared well this year and celebrated the 2017 holidays properly with your friends and loved ones. I know I did.
Again, my work is complete to the best of my ability.
Yours is just beginning.
