Another year down the drain.. can't say I'll be sorry to see the back of it. Let's hope 2013 is a different story!

Happy new Year to all at HTG. :)

Seems apropos today. Have a great year everyone (:>~

Ticking away the moments
That make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours
In an off-hand way

Kicking around on a piece of ground
In your home town
Waiting for someone or something
To show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine
Staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long
And there is time to kill today

And then the one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun

And you run and you run
To catch up with the sun
But it's sinking

Racing around
To come up behind you again

The sun is the same
In a relative way
But you're older

Shorter of breath
And one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time

Plans that either come to naught
Or half a page of scribbled lines

Hanging on in quiet desperation
Is the English way

The time is gone
The song is over
Thought I'd something more to say

Home
Home again
I like to be here
When I can

When I come home
Cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones
Beside the fire

Far away
Across the field
Tolling on the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell...

2012 ended up being a better year for me than the previous two or three. Hopefully, it is trend that will continue in 2013.

Yes everyone, please have a good one.

We 'ad a bleedin' sparrow
wot lived up a bleedin' spout
one day the bleedin' rain came down
and washed the bleeder out

and as 'e lay half drownded
down in the bleedin' street
'e begged that bleedin' rainstorm
to bathe 'is bleedin' feet

and then the bleedin' sun came out
dried up the bleedin' rain
so our bleedin' little sparrow
'e climbed up 'is spout again

but O, the cruel sparrowhawk
he spied 'im in 'is snuggery
'e sharpened up 'is bleeedin' claws
and ripped 'im out by thuggery

just then, a bleedin' sporting type
wot 'ad a bleedin' gun
'e spies that bleedin' sparrowhawk
and blasts 'is bleedin' fun

the moral to this story
is plain to everyone
that them wot's up the bleedin' spout
don't get no bleedin' fun

@Scott. Most things PF, are often appropriate.

So I open my door to my enemies,
And ask can we wipe the slate clean,
They tell me to please go and fxxk myself,
You know you just can't win.

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
