Ready or not, another year and another decade is coming to an end. Did I stick to all my resolutions and goals? Hell no, I didn't really have any. My only life goal and mantra is that from Auntie Mame, "LIVE LIVE! Life's a banquet, and some sorry suckers are starving." So much out there to see, and people to meet, and places to go. So it will be another year of not sitting on the sidelines and Ill keep putting out. No, that's not right, Ill keep putting it out there. Oh Dear getting out there, THAT'S IT! Life to short to not enjoy it's delights.
speaking OF PUTTING IT OUT THERE!
Although the above picture does represent me to some extent! Champagne can have a wicked affect sometimes on me. So Im signing off early as much to get ready for the night. New Years always is a fun and special feeling night. It is time to wash away a year you might not have enjoyed, and gives hope to a new year and slate. After years of going out in the debauchery, I opted nine years ago to have friends in now for the evening, though I do have a rule of dressing up...a tuxedo shirt and bow tie or mandatory. I generally have copious amounts of food and champagnes flows all night to the wee hours...music, good friends, and the ball drop. I welcome all to stay and pass out where ever they can find a spot. The next day, New Years Day is followed by my legendary Pork and Sauerkraut dinner whilst we take in the color and delight of the Mummer's Parade, literally an ALL DAY parade here in Philadelphia. It's always a good time, and I feel sets the tone for the New Year.
I had a good year and can't complain about to much that happened. I had a pretty good year. And Warbucks is surprising me with yet again another unannounced visit. He's in Quebec and Montreal on business and is stopping in for the two days. One never knows where he is. He has yet another surprise he says. My only wish for the New Year is for my friends, and you all included, to have a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year!!! Hopefully you'll be back to suffer through my antics for another year.....and I truly thank you all for always stopping in and for your friendships. And for next year, like these two GRANDE Divas....may Happy Days truly be here again next year... with out you know who. May we all be singing this one! I feel a good note to end the year on.
HAPPY NEW YEARS FRIENDS🎉
