"Same Old Lange Syne…"

And now, we pause for a wee bit of schmaltz.

I always liked Dan Fogelberg, and this remains arguably his best-known and most-remembered work.  (A personal favorite remains “Longer Than,” which was Our Dance for our wedding reception nearly 25 years ago.  But I digress.)

Happy New Year, y’all.

  1. Kind of a downer to begin New Year’s Eve. (I think I need a drink.)
    “Longer Than” is one of my favorites. What a beautiful tribute to what marriage is all about. (I don’t think that Fogelberg was too successful in the marriage area.)

    On a lighter note, one of my good friends danced at her wedding to Sinatra’s “Call Me Irresponsible.”

    I told her, “Look, if your marriage doesn’t work out, I’ll testify at the annulment proceedings that you danced to that song.”

    A Happy New Year and May there be Peace and Good Will in 2011.

    Thanks for that, Deacon Greg.

    That song takes me back to my Junior year in high school.

    Happy New Year to you and yours!
