HAPPY NEW YEAR🎉

 
Happy New Year to you All!
Here at the Casa today all are fine after getting to bed at around 4:30 am! The Mistress was high and tight as were most of the guest from swilling on champagne all night. Now we are relaxing with watching the Mummers Parade, truly an ALL DAY spectacle, while the dinner is cooking. The Mummers Parade is held each New Year's Day in Philadelphia. It is the oldest  and longest running folk festival parade  in the United States. Local clubs, usually called "New Years Associations",  compete in one of five categories- Comics, Wench Brigades, Fancies, String bands, and Fancy Brigades. The parade is a 118 year, unique Philadelphia tradition that is pure fun, enjoyment, and folk art, and has withstood the test of time because of the strength of the diverse communities. And has more  plumes, feathers, beads ,and sequins to complete with any drag show!!!!

I present my meat!
A great way to start the New Year! 
🎉Welcome 2020🎆

  6. At the risk of humbugging anyone's bah, I'm exhausted! Some idiots eager for the new year to begin started shooting off their whatevers (one sounded like a cannon) at 8:00 p.m. That wasn't even 12:00 a.m. on the east coast yet! My poor Bella was traumatized until everything stopped at 1:00 a.m. By that time I was wide awake! I don't really know what a Mummer is, except that was what my grandmother used to call our little lady parts. TMI? Too bad, I'm tired! My late mother-in-law used to cook head cheese and chitlins' on New Years for luck (Mississippi born). I don't know about all that. It certainly wasn't lucky for the pigs! I'm very glad that everyone else enjoyed themselves (not snark, really). By the way, I enjoyed the card with the drunken robins. So cute!

    1. at least the idiots round here waited until midnight to set off the fireworks/cannons/whatever the fuck it was. and it only lasted 15 minutes. HNY, duchess!

    2. I like the r drunken robin card too Deedles. We here were the same...horns, fireworks, and car horns here at midnight. The fireworks are actually very pretty. A neighbor across the street sets them off. If Buster had been here, he usually jumps, looks around then falls back asleep. Happy New Years Duchess Deedles!!!!!! Now excuse me...my mummer has an inch.

  14. The New Year celebration sounds like much fun was had. We hit the rack at 12:05. Early on in the evening I wished we could've gone out somewhere. By 11:30, I was very happy we didn't. LOL. I hope your meat was fully savored!
