New Year's Eve

Plans?
We avoid "amature night" and just stay home. Couple of Italian hoagies, shrimp, pepperoni and cheese tray, veggie tray, etc. and a fire in the fireplace...maybe a movie.

Whatever your plans, be safe, and have a happy new year! :beer:

    Nothing at all. My only plan is to binge watch week 17 tomorrow.
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Belly full of seafood and some hoppy beer at home, watch the Wild beat the Blue Jackets.

    We've got some folks coming over, to ring in the new year like we do every year. My brother is gonna bring me a keg of black powder (whipee) for my Christmas that got here today. Ain't gonna have time to fiddle with that too much this afternoon, though. Just making these little wooden puzzle boxes right now, probably gonna run me through till the wife gets home.

    I haven't been told yet, but, frequently, we babysit the grandchildren and are thankful the ball drops in NYC at 9:00 local time.

    Just family at home.

    No. 2 son not gigging, so no road managing for me this year.

    Might get the pair of them to irritate the old joanna for a song sing.

    Just this moment sharing a warm beer with son No.1

    Cheers to all and one.:beer:

    My wife and I are planning on eating out at the local Greek place tonite - if they're open that is. Then we'll come home and go to sleep until midnight when we will, no doubt, be awakened by "artillery fire"!

    Making shrimp. Banana splits for dessert. I may make a run for late lunch and get some chili rellenos in a bit. Other than that, kick back and stay home.

    Lets see................. my big plan is to watch the Ball drop in Times Square on TV.

    It usually gets noisy around here fireworks and gunfire...................starting about dark.

    Was planning on dinner and a couple of beers at one of the pubs, in BG. But the weather has turned off wet and cold. Supposed to rain all night. Guess I'll just wimp out and stay at home.

    I gassed up the autos.
    Got groceries.
    Built a new target stand.
    Gonna watch tv with my boy, and if I get really crazy I might pour us some ice cold Vernors ginger ale. Or maybe hot coa coa with marshmallows. Might even make another pot a coffee.

    Chilling at home New Year's Eve, spending quality time with the dog. Starting at 3 AM tonight, BBC America is broadcasting a Star Trek Voyager marathon. Will any New Year's party be doing that? I didn't think so. Might join some friends for our regular Sunday morning brunch at Golden Corral, depends on which Voyager episodes I'd have to miss.

    Chinese for supper, then probably a movie or two before we turn in. Staying up to watch the Times Square shenanigans at midnight got old a long time ago.

    Buddy just called and asked if we wanted to come by around midnight and do fireworks at his place...he get the BIG mortars and air show stuff that the pros use. Thanked him, but turned it down..."you want me to drop some off at your place?" Not a good idea...but tempting.
    Back to the meat room...slicing down a bear roast for jerky...fatty son of a gun, but looking good.
    After that, we've got 40' of CPVC, 2' of PVC , 2 packs of skewers and 4 packs of pipe cleaners...yup, making blow gun kits for the Boy Scouts Klondike Derby...they penetrate cardboard, so I'm sure flesh too...but boys would never try that...would they? LOL!

    Quiet night at home with some lobster and shrimp. Then enjoy a Opus X cigar

    Greek place is closed, wife doesn't want to go to the Lebanese place, so we're going to the Indian restaurant instead.

    Either way, Zorba will most likely be more colorful than the than the surrounding decor.

    Killed off 2 full size hoagies, half the shrimp, veggie and cheese tray, and still 4+ hours to go...teenage boys can put a hurt on food.

    I know the feeling... We ordered 9 large pizzas and 5 of them have disappeared...

    Netflix and a pot of coffee.

    It's cold, and pouring down rain. This means that, unfortunately, I'm not going to be smoking a cigar when the ball drops. However, it also means that there are less folks shooting fireworks throughout the neighborhood.

    Little column 'A', little column 'B'.
