OLAF FUB SEZ: Happy New Year!

"Forget Not to Remember"
So quickly do our days go by,
Like clouds across the winter sky.
But for our memory holding on,
Would all our wind swept days be gone,
Would all our days be gone.
So we have sung, and stories told,
Of days anew and days of old,
Of memories we pass on and on,
Lest all our treasured days be gone,
lest all our days be gone.
And here's to auld lang syne, my friend,
To days recalled at daylight's end,
To friends we hope to meet again.
So let us pause, ere moving on,
Until our final days are done.
-- Bill Slon
