In 5 weeks we will start a new year. I will wait until New Years Eve to give an end of the year report – because adding Top Band counters will come down to the wire. I’m hoping to add 5 more by then, but that seems like a bit of a pipe dream, but it is possible, so I say shoot for the stars.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving – it was exactly as Thanksgiving should be – a family get together with probably the best Thanksgiving meal I have ever had with close family gathered at the table and with fun conversation all around.
I work right next to Union Square – so I will take in some of the holiday festivities since its literally out our back door.
Politically it was the worst year of my life, but I have learned how to shut that out – or at least convert the Idiocracy that we live in to a series of comedic vignettes. The political landscape can only get better – unless it completely implodes, which would be better than where we are now. We had a preview at Halloween of bigger things to come, so it will be interesting to see how our democracy holds up.
As always, I’m eternally hopeful that we will always weather the storm and that 2018 will be better than the very surreal and somewhat depressing 2017.
Until then, all eyes at Chez KY6R are on Top Band DXCC / 9BDXCC and 3Y0Z – two really big things to look forward to. I also have some really great things lined up for work and a week trip planned up to our beloved Bend, OR.
