Adios 2017

J.C. Leyendecker
We collectively say goodbye to 2017 and all I can say is good riddance and don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out.

It was the worst year imaginable for me. I sincerely hope that yours was better than mine was.

Business was dreadful, at least for me personally.

We installed a pathological liar to the presidency who has gone about his business selling the country out to the highest bidder, tearing down every environmental and safety protection imaginable for the American public and making the United States of America the laughing stock of the world.

Not to mention, he recently stuck a knife in Affordable Health Care, by killing the individual mandate. A rube from Queens, the guy orders his steak extra well done with ketchup.

The orange one has stoked the flames of racial division and sowed seeds of hatred that will unfortunately sprout anew and ensure many future generations of vile rancor.

Like Saruman before his exile and eventual extirpation, Trump goes about his way trying to destroy everything in his path, and quite successfully I might add. Alternative facts and a bizarro universe of outright lies and half truths.

I lost good friends this year and I had friends die on me as well. And I lost my brother, who along with my wife was the dearest person in the world to me. This made it the toughest time I have ever had to endure and the effect on my emotional state has been palpable.

Adios 2017, you bastard. May your existence be the nadir of this century or yuga or whatever time we have left on this sad globe of ours, do not darken our vision ever again. Be gone.

Catch you all in the next cycle. Let us hope.

Happy New Year Leslie and Robert,
Thanks for all you do to produce your amazing
Blog for all your lucky readers. Sorry about the current loss which is the downside I guess of being such a connected person with so many
Dear and valuable humans that you appreciate
and interact with, I admire this. I am feeling a
Strange positivity about 2018 there will be a
Huge backlash for the actions of the devil and
I believe there will be hell to pay. The photos
You make are as good as they get, I’d love to see
You put a book together, your portraits are very
Emotional. We enjoyed seeing you in Pasadena
And wish you noting but the best in 2018.
S and L

A year to savor, from Jan first to Dec 31, it was FINE, just FINE. Always woke up with a smile knowing that piece of garbage from Wellesley blew $1 Billion (that's with a B) of other people's money, had the Boss, Katy Perry, Bon Fuckin Jovi, Bay-On-Say and her worthless hubby, a sex tape, the Russkies, no-drama 44 shuckin' and jivin'to save his legacy, even the Bushes, and a 30 point lead in the 4th quarter.......AND LOST!!!!!

It still feels so good, after all this time.

And what can you say about this economy, that Krugman swore could never, ever happen,
and it's just chugglin' along, with a record Dow every day. Kicked ISIS ass in just a year, ready for the wall, rolling back all of Mr. Slow Jam's agenda, Huma gonna join her ex in the slammer, Franken and Featherbed Conyers out the door.

Need I say it. Aw, well.........MAGA!!!

Welcome 2018 we have so much to be thankful for and so easy to focus on negative as we all live in disney land but tend to forget it,we may just look elsewhere to people with one pot and a tarp fleeing for their lives or masses starving to realize how blessed we are this new year. there has never been a perfect year but we always hope one will be better than last,thats the nature of us all.
