New Year's Wishes


Barbara Beyer Malley,

to us! :)

May peace break into your house,

may thieves steal your debts.

May the pockets of your jeans be
magnets for$100 bills.

May love stick to your face like
Vaseline, may laughter assault your lips.

May your clothes smell like
smoking tires of success.

May happiness slap you across the face,
may your tears be of joy.

May the problems you had forget
your home address.

May 2008 be the best year of your life!

Dear St. Francis of Assisi
