This is first day of the second year of Jimmy's Journal. I started this journal on a lark, December 5, 2006, basically because of the urge to write things down as they pass through the mirrors of my mind. I'm very happy that I did, if only to get to know some of the fine people that pass by to see me. So, off we go into year two of Jimmy's Journal. Tighten your seat belts and I hope you enjoy the ride. Please remember the heighth requirements.
