Should auld acquaintance be forgot

And never brought to mind?

Of course not.

It’s been a turbulent year. We have lost people dear to us, gained new precious ones to look over, and tasted bitter and sweet in our careers and home life. It has, perhaps, been the most life-affecting year of this decade for P and I.

As once written (or interpreted, if you want to be precise) by the gud Rabbie Burns:

“We twa hae run about the braes1,
and pu’d the gowans2 fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit3,
sin auld lang syne.”

So, we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Raise a dram on 2010 and roll on 2011. We are ready for you.

1 hills
2 pulled the daisies
3 wandered many a weary foot
