2009

The sun rises on a new year.

Wishing you a year of champagne and roses...

And as I promised, here is our very own Oracle, Benjy, gazing towards the horizon to figure out what 2009 will bring. Ask him questions on the year to come, and he'll answer - if cryptically, as is all oracles' wont.

yes- a year of champagne and roses sounds nice.. and i am fully supportive of benjy's prophetic predictions! can i really ask benjy questions?

kendalee said...

How privileged you are to be on first name terms with an Oracle! His wisdom radiates... Happy New Year to both of you... may it be your best year yet! :)

Benjy The Oracle said...

GABBI - you asked what 2009 would bring for George and you... The horizon looks peaceful for the four-pawed creatures and their two-legged counterparts who know how to ride the waves, keeping their balance like Californian surfers despite the undertow.... I also see a raspy tongue and fluffy fur...

ASHERETTE - of course you can ask me questions! The Oracle always answers.

KENDALEE - yes, my wisdom is as huge as my body is small indeed.

Laura said...

Happy New Year! They say how you spend your New Year's eve and day will set how your year will be. Surrounding yourself with flowers, sunrises, beach and puppies sounds perfect to me. We watched the fireworks over the bay. Yeah 2009! Thank you for your good wishes.

Benjy said...

LAURA - fireworks on the bay! It must be beautiful! But I'm not crazy about the noise they make!

ALL - thank you for your good wishes! I am sending you all by very best canine wishes, with plenty of loving woofs...

mansuetude said...

Happy New Year... may Benji peer into the future and pull some Peace On Earth forward... a little thread..

Love that top image.

Rebekah said...

Happy New Year!!!

Anairam said...

A Happy New Year to you too! And to Benji, whom I would like to ask: Will 2009 bring me riches or fame? Or both? Am I being greedy or unrealistic? Or both?

Tess said...

Benjy:

Will you and I get to have lots of romps on the beach together this year?

Will there be lots of good sniffs?

What treats are in store for us?

Candace said...

Benjy:

What adventures are in store for Rusty, Tess and me in 2009?

Do you foresee Mary-Laure and you joining us on any of these adventures?

::warm belly rubs::

Benjy The Oracle said...

MANSUETUDE - alas, alas, as I gaze towards the West, my heart gazes in pain towards the Middle East. Peace I wish for.

TESS - for the four legged sweethearts, the sandy paws of the Cove, time is a circle of woofs, sniffs, licks and low tides: the present is the future, life is good.

CANDACE - adventures are like clusters of starfish, unexpected and colorful; all you need to do is look for them, open your bright eyes.

Candace said...

Benjy:

You are "The Oracle" indeed with wisdom way beyond your years.

Joanna said...

Benjy, you look ever so pensive in this shot. Are you contemplating what the new year has in store for you? I hope it includes plenty of frolics on the beach and snuggles with your two-legged companion.
