Our community is pretty small and every year the vet's club puts on a New Year's party at the VFW/community hall for anyone who wants to pay the cover charge of $8 a head. (12 and under are free) Which is the entire town and then some. :)

They feed us supper and then open the bar. Everyone sits around all night playing cards, toasting each other and chatting until the wee hours... No worries about tracking down a babysitter since everyone brings their kids who run around all night playing Hide&Seek or reading each other stories. The older kids watch out for the younger kids and it seems like anyone who shows up has fun.

I imagine it must be like an old fashioned barn dance. Without the dancing. :wink:

So what plans do the rest of you have?

Two reasons to celebrate, one is the obvious and the other is hubby's 44th birthday. I am taking him and the best friend out for supper, and then we're off to a small party at some good friends of ours. At midnight, the fireworks are going off. Can't wait!

That's something I've missed since leaving North Dakota; we can't flip on the TV and see HS hockey games anymore...
Not that I'm a wild hockey fan or anything, but watching the kids play was a *lot* of fun. :)

Babysit grandkids so the young folks can go out--New Years is amateur night and if its one thing I can't stand is a bunch of once a year drunks.....

Probably watch PBR on TV and be in bed by the time its New Years even in New York.....

May you and everyone driving tonight have a safe journey, TX TIBBS.

We have our grandson so we will stay home and engage him in a game of cards or something else we may be able to dream up. Right now the guys are out target shooting and he is going to shoot the .270 for the first time!!

My #1 son and his girlfriend came over from Bozeman, shared a nice meal of T-bone roast (cooked perfectly), twice-baked potatoes, fruit salad with honey-lemon dressing and homemade sourdough biscuits! Mmmmmmmmmmm! We exchanged Christmas gifts, too. They've already left so they don't have to dodge drunks, we never go out on New Year's Eve....just stay home and watch a movie or play a game. Everyone stay SAFE and talk to ya next year!!

Hubby dragged in from trip to Alabama late afternoon so we're just sitting in front of the fire eating popcorn and I'm contentedly reading garden and seed catalogues.
But- I treated myself to a phone call to.........................................
none other than Faster Horses! And she didn't sound at all like I thought she'd sound. Giv'er a call and see what you think.

Happy New Year to all of my Ranchernet buddies! :D

We have friends who asked us out for supper and dancing. After the last week was really looking foreward to it. They teased me about driving so I slid under the wheel and just at the golf coarse managed to hit a deer. So much for having a good time everyone else did though. The food was good and it was the bands (young at heart) last time playing together. All those musicians who want to play contact John Grooms. They will be sadly missed. Guess will have to pomote the Littau family poka band... :D
