Oh, is 2011 over? That’s too bad.

Somebody might be snuggly-est kitty ever. She slept with the dogs and me last night. There was gonna be none of that "I'm sleeping alone in the guest room" crap for her. At one point I woke up and she was splayed across Edsel.

Nervous and cowardly. That's Iris in a nutshell.

Anyway, it's time for my end-of-year slide show, and I am proud to report I did it myself. In previous years I just selected pictures and Marvin created the whole thing, but I figured it out myself. June. Certified genius. Acme Certified Genius.

This was a C- year, and that was being generous, but it wasn't all bad. See photo above. Also I got to know Dick Whitman's mom. And I got my new computer. And Latisse. Plus my new job is cool.

And then there's all of you.

See? You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have the facts of life. The facts of life. (Fortunately that is not the song I play during this slide show. Although that would have been hilARious. It's by my friend Beth Thornley.)

  1. Like OJ I am thrilled my macaroni box made the cut as well. I couldn’t have the sound on because yanno one-balled Pete gets his testicle in a wad when any noise comes from my laptop – which is good because a few of those pics got me teary eyed as well.
    Life is like a roller coaster – highs and lows. All we can do is strap in and enjoy the highs and pray the lows aren’t beyond our strength to conquer.
    *toast* Here’s to you Juniepie. For all the wonderfulness that is you – Happy New Year kiddo!

  3. Ohhhhhhh. I just got to watch this (I tried to watch it on my phone in the car while I was out, got to the first shot of Marv with Lu and POOF my phone shut down). All your pets. All your friends. You share so much with us, June. THANK YOU.
    (Also a big thank you for not using Adele for the music.)

    I wish I had a cataloging of my year…….you can look back and find the good, happy, sad, and sappy…….I just mostly want to chuck it all and pretend the year didn’t happen……you make me so aware that it wasn’t all bad…….and sometimes it was pretty doggone bad……..thanks for sharing your life with all of us….you are the first thing I click on in the morning for a reality check…Here’s to 2012……whatever she may bring.

  9. Edsel’s underbite, Francis in costume, Roger, the beautiful picture of you at the end…fabulous, June. Happy 2012!
    p.s. My favorite post of the year was the time the dogs dug up Francis. So not funny, but so funny, too.
    p.p.s. My favorite comment was the time the lady said she was unsubscribing because things were getting too dramatic. That one had me laughing for days. What, June, dramatic? Never! đŸ™‚

  10. June, you deserve the best–the best friends, the best pets, the best life. It seems from your video and the comments of all the people who care about you that you’re batting average is pretty damn good. Here’s to the best New Year ever!!!!!

  11. Ohhh, THAT’S who sings that annoying, overplayed song! Adele.
    Well, it’s 10:15 here. As far as I’m concerned it’s midnight. Happy New Year and I’m going to sleep now.

  14. Happy New Year, Junie and the Pie Peeps. May 2012 be the new and improved year for everyone. Much better than the one that left last night while I was sleeping.
