Yah!! Christmas is over and I can put all the decorations away. I can take the leafs out of the table and have room to move around the dining room. My X-mas dinner went fine, although we did discover that we don't have nearly enough serving utensils to have more than a few dishes. I have a fine turkey soup going with the left overs and I am going to make a 15 bean soup with the leftover ham bone. Usually, my older dog would have gotten the bone, but with the addition of the puppy and only one bone, I will make soup with it instead...just to be fair. Tom bought me a cell phone for christmas "in case I have problems with the car". Wouldn't you know it, the car broke down at 5:30 am the morning after christmas. The cell phone came in handy! I am going crazy without the car, but it is supposed to be fixed this weekend.
New Years Eve will be spent much the same way every other night is spent. Doing nothing but farting around on the computer and maybe watching TV. Unless Tom happens to be playing, NYE is no big deal. Interesting fact though, my uncle played for Guy Lombardo, he was a trumpet player in the band. So whenever I hear "Auld Lang Syne" or whatever its called, I always silently say hi to Uncle Bill.
Happy New Year!!
