We're doing the same thing we do every year --- As midnight approaches, we put on the TV to watch the ball drop in Times Square with whoever is hosting it (no more Dick Clark . We pour a drink then toast each other and say "Happy New Year". After he finishes his drink, my husband goes to bed

Question Midnight??

We currently live in a country club community, mostly older folks (though not legally a 55+), and for the festivities at the clubhouse on New Years Eve, they "drop the ball" at 10 p.m. because the old timers can't stay up till 12.

But they've kept the name for some reason ...

I'll be in my chair.
If I fall asleep - Oh, well

Happy birthday, NEG!

Tomorrow is my son's birthday too! We are going to celebrate with a very nice birthday dinner for him. He has been the light of my life since the day he was born, so I always think the whole world is celebrating his birthday on NY Eve LOL (Yours too NEG!)

Dinner with friends, reservations at 7pm. We'll probably be home by 10pm. It's nice to have plans.

Happy Birthday, NEG! Flight Attendant Happy Birthday to your son. I loved your story. I have a son, and they are special.

Happy Birthday, NEG. Tomorrow night we'll have a nice, home-cooked meal, a champagne cocktail or two and be in bed well before midnight.

Today is our 18th anniversary as well as the 6th anniversary of my retirement. A most joyous day on both accounts.

Happy birthday, NEG and happy anniversary, Curmudgeon.

NY's Eve is usually a stay at home and wait for it to end time for me. It's too cold to go outside. I went to a First Night in Boston one time with a dinner dance at Symphony Hall and when it got out just after midnight I felt like painting the town! Trouble was, the whole place closed down just after midnight! So it was just back to the hotel. I guess that's just the way Boston is.

Today I am sitting here in Virginia Beach with a cat. We drove down a few days ago, are resting here, and probably on New Years Day we will take up driving again so we can get to Florida. I'm taking the advice on here and doing it NOW. While we still can! Hubby hopes to tour the space center at Cape Canaveral and then we go on a Caribbean cruise. Once we get all of that out of our systems, we drive back here to Virginia Beach and stay for a few more weeks free at my sister's house. It's a change for us, it's nice to visit my sister and see the nieces (who live nearby) and the days are longer here. AND WARMER. Stay warm, people living in the cold areas, stay warm.

This is my first New Year's Eve in 40 years that I haven't been on patrol. I have no idea what to do!

Like last year, I'm taking my leash-trained ferret down to the Las Vegas Strip around 4am with the littered-strewn streets! That puts my ferret in heaven, scrounging through piles of trash, and he may get lucky and find something that really tasty, like an unfinished Smoothie, like last year, and? Devour it, and a block away he's poopin' his brains out!

Besides, they have an ordinance now, can't walk your pets on the Strip, only between 4am and noon! It shall be fun, and all the photo-ops!

New Year's Day night: a Marisela concert at Westgate!
