I made it until midnight...

As I type this, some of my neighbors are out blowing off all kinds of Fireworks and it is officially 2014......


Younger folks are having a party on the TV singing about the world and their girl friends....  They still do that show in the name of Dick Clark, but I wonder if they even know who he was....  He passed in April of 2012..

Since it is midnight here in the Central time zone, they just showed the time square area, and not a soul is left.... Only the tons of confetti on the street...

But the party goes on.....  But for me, I am heading off to bed as we have a big day planned for tomorrow.....  or today now...

Happy New Year....

  1. Happy New Year Rod, I think 2014 will be a good year for you :)

  2. Happy New Year, Rod. Hope 2014 is a great year for you.


  3. Happy New Year Rod!! May it be filled with happiness and health!

  4. Happy New Year, Rod. You made it longer than we did last night as we watched the ball drop at at 9pm PST here in Palm Springs and then headed off to bed.

  5. Happy New Year Rod. Kathy and I only made it to 11:30 EST and since she's recovering from something one of the grands gave her that wasn't bad. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  6. Wow - I'm impressed. We definitely didn't make it til midnight. We didn't even see the ball drop in Times Square because we went to bed at 9:30. Happy New Year. See you soon.

  7. Happy New Year! You did definitely better than us. We were in bed by 9:30 CST and I didn't even hear the noise when the fireworks went off!
    The new year came anyway, whether we were awake or not.
    Wish you lot of happy moments!

  8. Been many years since I last stayed up long enough to see a new year roll in. Just not on my priority list anymore I guess..
