But for the most of us it's been the passing of many big names in music and the arts, along with the insane, did-not-see-that-coming end to the 2016 presidential election, Standing Rock, race issues, and world affairs. And almost no one is getting out of this year unscathed financially... well, except the rich and those tech fuckers. (And I'll admit tech is starting to feel it at some levels and in some sectors.)
HOWEVER... (There's always an "however".)
If you're reading this, that means you're still substantial in the department of having things. And, we can all be mindful, and thankful, that's there's going to be a tomorrow. So, with that in mind, let me wish you all the best today, and to the end of the year. May your blessings be countless and your tummy ill from poor dinner choices.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to console myself at a local pub. Have a good one.
(Is... is 2016 over yet?)
