A Wish List for 2011

Congratulations to Kathy ~ winner of Veronica's giveaway!

A Wish List for 2011

Not necessarily in this order, these are the things I wish for in the coming year:

  1. A repeat Emmy win for Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer, one of the few shows on the boob tube that makes me laugh.
2. And speaking of things that make me laugh, continued success, including excellentratings for Hawaii 5-0. Scott Caan may be short but he's got a look in his eye that's just like his father.

3. A World Series win for the Texas Rangers and my personal heroes Josh Hamilton and and Nolan Ryan.

4. A short, tepid winter for Western New York State. Prolonged sub-zero temps and snow fall in excess of 100 inches are getting old. Either that, or my bones and muscles are too worn for this crap.

5. Somewhere in my travels, I find the perfect hot dog. If anyone reading this list has a suggestion, I'm ready, willing and able to hear it.

6. Continued growth for Lilac City Rochester Writers, my home fiction writers group. As out-going president, I wish each member success, as they define it, while they travel their writer's journey.

7. A decent offensive line for the Buffalo Bills who at this moment in time could not rush against my four grandchildren.

8. And speaking of gifts from above, I wish that my grandchildren, Meredith, Ashlin, Owen and Kieran continue to thrive and grow in peace and love.

9. Continued success for Decadent Publishing.

10. That my cable company keeps the Fox Network available. My Sunday afternoons won't be the same without Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Michael Strahan and Jimmy whatshisname. If they drop the Fox network, I'll have to find something else to do on Wednesday nights because I won't get to drool over the hero on a show called “Human Target”. Now there's hunk if I've ever seen one.

  1. I would wish for a mild winter, a healthier body, a nice weight loss, and a new kindle before the year is out.

  2. I think I'm wishing for cable just so the dang boy-child will stop bothering me about why we aren't normal


  3. Oh, I would wish for better financial news for several relatives. A healthier body for me and continual success for my writing. And a summer without wildfires would be an added bonus.

  4. My wish is that the 6 months my husband is deployed passes by quickly, and he returns home safe and unharmed. I won't push my luck asking for anything else LOL

    I LOVE your list especially #7. Made me laugh out loud!


  5. I wish for better health for a number of my friends who are ill, for good fortune for those in the service of our country, for better news in the economy of both our country and our states, less unemployment. For myself personally, I wish for better luck with my garden. LOL

  6. I like #2, 4, and 7...

    #2 I watch for Alex O'Loughlin
    #4 I'm in Eastern NY and so far so good for our winter (I think I may have spoken too soon)
    #7 The poor Bills...I don't think my husband can take much more...

    Thank you for sharing your Wish List!

    I wish for a J.O.B. in the new year!


  7. In answer to your request for the perfect dog, they are served each Canada Day at Dinner Bay Park on beautiful Mayne Island--so my husband reports, as I'm a fish eating vegetarian.
    Among my wishes for 2011--that my soon-to-be Decadent published thriller finds a readership. : )

  8. I'm wishing for a job for my son. Everything else will take care of itself.

  9. Wow - I'm right next door to you (Syracuse) and wish for a warmer winter too, though rumor has it the snow is coming tomorrow!

    Thanks for sharing your wishlist. I'm going to have to look up your writing group. Are you still going to participate even though you are not president?

    LOL - You sure gave me a lot to comment about. My wish is for continued growth in my writing. I would dub myself a seedling right now!

    Happy New Year ~ Miranda

  10. I'm wishing for new employment, to start school, and to stay on track with my workouts.


  11. First thing, I agree with you about Sean Caan. He's got the same fiesty spirit as his dad.

    As for the perfect hot dog, there's a little place in Carteret, NJ, called Tommy's. He has steady customers that stand in line to be able to sample an Italian hot dog. There's also another Tommy's in Cape May, NJ. The Tommy there is not related, but he serves outrageous hot dogs with gourmet toppings. Either one of them will tantalize your taste buds.


  12. I wish for health and prosperity in the New Year!

  13. I wish for continued good health for us all and some stability for our country.

  14. My wish would be for everyone to get all they wish for!

  15. i watch *2 for alot of reasonsthehot guy factor wins out

    I wish that my family will all be together so me my boys and my fiance all live under the same roof thats my wish for this year

    your a new to me author so ill have to checkout ur work too


  16. I love your idea of New Years Wishes. Mine revolve around tv--I wish I could afford more channels (although there probably will still be nothing on), and that my favorite shows come back again next year.

    For my family, I just want their work related accident settlement to be resolved after three and a half years of waiting. They have been so close to foreclosure so many times, had utilities shut off, and not eaten many nights, which happens when you're physically damaged and unable to work.

    So I have one little hope and one big hope for 2011.

  17. Veronica ~ don't listen to those other hot dog lovers! The best dogs are at Nathan's in New York. I'm sure the other dogs are great, but these dogs saved my poor husband and I from starvation one time, LOL. We were in college and gone to the city on a wing and a prayer, and ran out of money (yeah, going to NYC with $35 was not smart but we were young). We had no money left and found a Nathan's coupon, buy one get one for 5 cents ~ and all the toppings it could hold. Let's just say, those two hot dogs were like Thanksgiving dinner! LOL. I still love hot dogs to this day and I've had my share. But Nathan's...yum!!

  18. I wish for continued health for my family. And being from Buffalo, NY myself, I share your Bills wish! Sheila P52 at yahoo dot com

  19. Veronica, thank you for the good wishes!

    I agree about Scott Caan, I actually am a fan of his and his dad.

    I am a Hebrew National girl, myself, but I found the BEST dogs at the San Genero fest in NYC. Smothered and yummy. WHAT IS BETTER than a street dog in NYC?!?


  20. I wish for my daughter to find a good job that will help her take care of her and the kids and not worry about not making enough for bills.

    Nice pic of Scott Caan. :)

  21. I definitely agree with you on Human Target - Mark Valley is so sexy! It's one of my favorite shows :-)
