I was decluttering my desk and came upon some notes made by both Dawson and Grady.  I normally don’t pry into their affairs except when scheduling transportation but I couldn’t resist when I saw what appeared to be their New Year’s resolutions for 2018.  Dawson, as expected, has big plans for his year while Grady includes me in many of his goals.  I found their resolutions both inspiring and amusing so I thought I would share them with you. 

Here’s wishing you a 2018 filled with the kind of fun and adventure that only Grady and Dawson can dream of!
