Happy New Year's Eve

Posted: Saturday, December 30, 2006 by Travis Cody in

I don't have anything charmingly witty or indelibly profound to say. And I'm not doing a recap of the whole year. Stuff happenend. I lived through it. 'Nuff said there.

But there are two things that made 2006 very special to me.

The first began in January when I heard a gravelly whiskey tenor, telling me that a change was gonna come. I believed it. And I was hooked on Taylor Hicks from that moment. It took me until April to officially join the online Soul Patrol. But I was a memeber of this fanbase from that Vegas audition. I just didn't know there were other people like me. I had no idea at that time that I would make so many lasting friendships. But I thank Taylor for that.

The second thing happened in June. I was at the gym, doing my best to work on my knees. She walked behind me, made a joke, and thumped me on the back of the head. Well, in the six months since then she's learned that I'm not such a wimp - the knees are just bad and I do the best I can with what I have. And I've been trying to figure out what the hell I did before I met her.

So it's been a great year for me. I don't know how things can get better in 2007. But I'm open for anything at this point.

Have a safe and sane celebration. For those of you going out, watch out for the amateurs. If you drink, get a designated driver or call a cab. If you're staying home, snuggle up with the ones you love and raise a toast.

See ya on the other side gang!!
