Bones loves where he lives.  
Heís always lived here
in the city of Philadelphia.  

The weather doesnít bother him at all.  

The hot,
steamy summers
with the humidity
just rolling in
from his beloved
Delaware River,
and the cold,
wet winters
when it either
rains or snows,
it just doesnít matter
to Bones.  

This is the place he lives,
and he loves it all the time.  

Itís where he was born,
where he raised his children,
and where he will die
when his time comes.  

He wishes everyone
a Happy New Year,
where ever they are.

A man who has a home, a true home that is more than a roof over his head, values his home; I gather that Bones knows that. I love the imagery and mood of the river.

Thanks Art,

As I'm sure you know, the river is very important to us here in Philadelphia.  Of course you're right about home.

Thanks dear Alison,

I'm happy that you like Bones.  

I won't tell Marika, Felix, and Muck that Bones is your favorite.  There would be trouble.

Happy New Year to you from Bones and the gang.

Love Bobby

Thanks Yann,

I'm glad you like Philadelphia.  It's really pretty today, and every New Year's Day, because of the Mummers Parade.  Everyone out doing the Mummers Strut.

Bobby,

Thank you for not telling them - because I have grown so fond of them too that I would hate to hurt their feelings.

Love,
A

Thanks dear Alison,

They are all fond of you too.  As hard and tough as they are, they remain very sensitive.

Love Bobby
