Friday Feast #1: The Last Feast of 2006 is my first ...

Friday, December 29, 2006
Feast One Hundred & Twenty Four
As a cat, I don't get out much. But I am fairly observant of what goes on in my mom's life and she holds regular conversations with me where she asks about my day and I ask about hers. So I'm going to do the Friday Feast based on what I've seen happen in Mom's life during the past year.

How do you usually celebrate on New Year's Eve?
Eating snacks while avoiding the typical New Year's Eve programming. Mom's not a fan of Dick Clark or Time's Square or crystal ball-thingies that fall from the sky. She usually goes to bed while the Tijuaneros fire off their handguns ...

Name one thing unexpected that happened to you in 2006.
Two things really colored Mom's year:
Mom got mugged ... at gunpoint ... on May 22nd.
Mom was named "teacher of the year" for her site and her district.

Where was your favorite place that you visited in 2006?
Mom took a first-class plane trip up to Seattle on August 25 - 27. She visited Tolmie State Park for her cousin's 90th birthday. This was a highlight of her year.

Main Course
What resolution is your top priority for 2007?
Mom's number one priority is putting money away in her mutual fund, 457, and 403b accounts so that she can retire in sixteen years.

Using just three words, describe 2006.
change ... change ... change

For those of you keeping score, this is post #199!

Who will it be?

Thanks Grr, Midnight, and Cocoa ... Mom's hopin' for something called "justice," but I'd settle for a long prison term somewhere horrible. I don't know that I believe in "justice," but I do believe in "karma."

The mugging was really scarey to read about, I was held at gunpoint during an armed bank robbery. That takes a while, if ever, to get over.

ML ... The bank robbery sounds much scarier ... Mom was more shocked than anything. She thought that the guy was homeless.
