How was the year for ya?

There's a few days left, but was 2017 a decent year for you?  Or no?  Did you learn, laugh or love?  What letter grade would you give it?  If you'd rather use numbers, rank it from a low of 1 to a high of 100.  If you prefer colors, your pollmeister isn't sure that would work.  But what the heck, 2017 was turquoise.  We kid the lundies!  It was golden.

Pretty good. Very apolitical, as usual. A year older, but I'm still not old. As EH said in A Clean, Well-Lighted Place:

An Old Man is a Nasty thing.



It's possible to become so defiled in this world that your own father and mother will abandon you, and if that happens, God will always believe in your ability to mend your ways.

Apolitical, but I will say this kicks major ass.





Buncha freeloading wussies and pussies. We need to get the hell out of the UN and cut the cocksuckers off.

But never mind all that.  2017 was a great year for the RC household.  Lotsa time spent with friends & family, though never enough.  Smarter is just about to head into a life of active retirement & we can hardly wait!  No major personal tragedies befell us & the lime tree has not died as of yet.

The Houston Astros and Robert Mueller both had great years. Here's to continued success for both. Especially Mueller.

For my personal life, I'd give it 80%

For my government and country, I'd give it a failing grade, something below 60%. Not the lowest it has been, considering WW1 and WW11 and the Great Depression and the JFK and Lincoln assassinations, and the Civil War, and the Civil Rights fight... as well as the fight for women's right to vote and right to own property and so forth. 

What makes the grade so low for me is that we ended the year with no way how we're going to stop Putin from hacking our next elections and also from setting up Fake News sites for conservatives to fall for, hook line and sinker.  IOW, there is no light at the end of the 2017 tunnel. We have not recovered from it.

If I don't answer when you talk to me or about me, that's likely because I have you on ignore.  Try to PM me. It won't let you PM me if I have you on ignore. There are other people, not members, who peruse this site. I want THEM to know why I don't reply to everyone who talks to or about me.
