Happy New Year Y'all!

Well it is finally 2011. I say finally because last year was a real roller coaster ride for us. Starting with Shari's heart attack, January 2 at about 3 AM...Happy New Year!.

Then it was months of rehab and getting adjusted to the new lifestyle for both of us. About April, we had considered ourselves adjusted to our new lifestyle. We had a new doctor as ours flew the coop for greener pastures. She has proven to be a Gem among physicians. Young, smart, up on the latest and not afraid to guide us to better health. This in the midst of a medical center nearly destroyed by hurricane Ike and only back to about 60% of it's pre-Ike status..if that much.

Next came the big surprise at the Isle of Capri Casino in Lake Charles... "the winner of our grand prize is Shari Angelo"....a 2011 Harley-Davidson "Fat Boy" motorcycle. We were excited to say the least. Shari sold it the next day and purchased a very nice 2008 Chevrolet Impala almost for the same amount as the profit from the bike within $30 bucks. What luck.

The rest of the year was kind of normal until I got pinned between a tractor and a truckload of hay. A freak accident to say the least which took me out of commission for a week or so but no major issues according to the CAT scan and x-rays. Another positive outcome for sure.

Now, we are faced with 2011 and the fun things it will bring. I expect to win the $189 million Texas lottery next week so stay tuned. Or perhaps God and our Guardian Angel will simply guide us through another good year on this Earth before our time is up.

Happy New Year and BE SAFE.

Jake,
I think that winning material things isn't everything but both have you have really won already considering Shari's Heart Attack and you getting pinned by tractor. THe dear Lord gave you some more time to smell the roses and live life to the fullest. Enjoy!
