Let’s raise a glass to old and new, and all the things we say and do. Sometimes, it passes oh so fast – but thanks to photos, it can last. The parties, full of fun and cheer – helped us ring in a brand new New Year. And the faces say it all so well, plus there’s always a great tale to tell. So thank you for your smiles so bright, and inviting me to share each night. Without you it would be a bore – but life is good on our North Shore. So here’s a toast to both yours and mine – and all the best in 2009.
