Lots of us make tge same resolution but its broken within a very short time, Bill. To compare a resolution with weight is perfect. A brilliant observation...

Oh yes. I'm trying to slim down my stomach. ;-)

A long year, gone. I wrote many dull haiku, some of those just two-liners -- And my handwriting --

I promise
to sharpen my pencil -
soon - perhaps
