May there be CHEER

I do declare today’s word is CHEER
Well hush my mouth, I’m fed up with masks as I’m sure you are
Smiles are hard to come by with life being so bizarre.
There’s a feather in my cap, got my chin up with hopeful believing
Looking forward to a brand-new year, I’ve got a good feeling.
It’s January 1st, 2022, … for land’s sake!
Time to celebrate and get ready to undertake
All the do’s and to do’s…don’t want to hold back
Good and ready for a spin through the Zodiac. 
I’ve got some ideas for a new creative endeavor
To bring more CHEER…exciting to put together.
Hoping to make resolutions with a bit of wit
Aiming to never give up, there’s no time to quit.
Here’s to us all, that we will persevere
Sharing the joy… let’s bring on the CHEER!
Blessings y’all
Peace & love
Queen Scarlett

    I do declare you brighten my day all the way across the ocean blue.
    I hope we get to dance with live music and lots of friends this year.

  11. Hear Hear, Sister! Looking forward to our paths crossing again sooner rather than later! Much love to you and yours

  12. Love the picture, Joan! Val and I are on the couch watching James Taylor and
    Carole King thinking of you all! Happy New Years to all of the family and everyone on this thread.

  13. Now HEAR!!!
    I say, I say, I say…. NOW HEAR! This goes out to All and Everything. My sister Joan, who I’ve called Joan for 72 years is the best sister anyone could have. It’s OK to call her Queen Scarlett if you like, but I still call her Joan. Now sometimes, every so often I call her Joaners or maybe Joanah. So, any kind name you care to call her is always welcomed with love. She’s one of a kind. They threw out the mold in 1950. So…. now in 2022, I send love to my sister Joan and all the family and my dear friends, way out there in Eugene.
    Big Love,
    Brother Bruce

  14. OMGoddess…Bruce…you’re too kind! Thank you for being the best brother & taking thoughtful time to leave this VERY meaningful message. I must let you & all know that y’all can call me any name you want…just don’t call me late for dinner! I love you so & when the time is right we will dwell together whether in Nashville or out here in the Wild West. BIG HUGS
