Wow, 2008. When I was a kid, I loved staying up until midnight seeing in the new year. This year I didn't. Too tired, mostly.
2008 means a few interesting things:
If you accidentally write 2007 on a check, no worries. With the deft use of your pen, you can easily modify the 7 into an 8.
This year my son and two of his cousins (my nephews) will be turning 10. 1998 was a very bountiful year for the procreation of the Zowie family tree.
I hope this year is a little better than 2007. We'll see.
