We made it! 2021 has kicked 2020 out!
I expect 2021 to be bad. It would be nice if it turns out I'm terribly wrong.

Yes, I'm expecting more of the same. According to the Govt. calculator, I'm not due to get the vaccine until September.

The UK finally left the EU on 1 January and I think in a few months the full implications of Brexit will be felt, with price rises and shortages of imported produce. On top of that, I'm facing the loss of my job. I also live in the district with the highest Covid infection rate in the UK, where far, far too many people think it's okay to carry on as normal, or worse than normal.

So, if anything, 2021 might be worse for me than 2020.

I expect 2020 to have a lot less Trump. Ideally to have Many Trump Indictments.

I'm so sorry about the job and Brexit. Voters willfully screwing everyone, it sucks.

Still, 2021! Cheers, y'all.

I am so sorry, Doohickie. What a magnificient floof he was.

He was.

No regrets. My wife adopted him in stages, first visiting with him, then feeding him, at the school where she taught. He lived under a portable classroom. When the cold weather rolled in 6 years ago, she brought him home.

I'm not a cat person, but if every cat was like George I would be.

He was friendly but not needy; he was cuddly and not aloof. He was just a good cat.

He'd been living outside when we took him in, but he never had much interest in going outside once we took him in. He was quite content live with us and our dogs. He established a different relationship with each of our dogs and got along with them all pretty well. It seemed he felt he had won the lottery and was quite content in our household. We were glad to have him as a part of our family for a little over six years.

We don't know how old he was. He was mature when we took him in, maybe 5, maybe 10, years old. Kidney failure killed him, the kind that comes to older cats. I don't know what kind of life he had before us, but he seemed pretty happy with his life with us.

Awww, Doohickie, that's a lovely story of mutual good and contentment.

I'm sorry that you'll be without George the Cat. Hugs to y'all.
