Happy New Year, Barb & I wish you good health and extreme happiness through out this new decade. As I mentioned in our previous post, we met Wednesday to plan our New Years Eve festivities with our hosting neighbors. Once done, we took off to Madison for shopping and hang out at the laundromat! What fun that is!
While in Madison, we did the Historical Homes tour – this time with the camera! It's amazing if you imagine the time back when these homes were in their prime. Imagine the prominent 'Southern Bells' with their beautiful gowns as they sachet around their massive properties.
Now with the shopping done, we have to fire up the oven and get the cooking done. We've decided a pot luck dinner then out for a camp fire then back in to watch the ball drop in Times Square. The weather agreed and we had clear skies to view the 'blue moon' before going back in to ring in the midnight hour. Discussions of all the New Year festivities going on around the world and we learned of a new one – The Possum Drop. Sounds more fun than the Ball Drop doesn't it! Take a look at the Web Site and you'll see some down home fun as midnight approaches. Well, we didn't have a possum to drop or fire works to set so we watched the ball drop at Times Square. Maybe not too exciting for most but for 6 people camped in an out of the way campground, it was just right for us! The evening lasted through 'till 3AM! Wow that's the latest we've been up for awhile – you can't count senior's insomnia!
Needless to say, with the weather co-operating, Barb & I went to the course to get 9 more holes in before we leave here for Texas. Gotta love it, golfing on New Years Day! This probably isn't new to most of you other snowbirds but it is to us northerners y'all!
