"Well," said Ish, "that was the Year One!"
"Yes," said Em, "but I think I shall always remember it as the Year of the Baby. Names are easier to remember than numbers."
Thus from the very beginning it came about that they called each year not so often by its number as by a name based on something that had happened during that time.

Well that was an interesting year: two story chicken coop, Ford Ranger project, travels, travails (leaking roofs). I am excited about the new year.
