First a local weather report for the evening here in Tripp County South Dakota. About two hours to go until the new year. Temperature is about 8F degrees with 89% humidity and light snow. About a half to 3/4 inches of the white stuff so far. Wind is 4mph and chill factor is 0F degrees. Enough on the weather.
Some year ends we just hit the sack at about he usual time and sleep right through the magic hour. I have drunk enough coffee to be wide awake to say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new and watch balls drop, etc. A sort of funny cartoon today. New Years Baby was late because he was being delivered by UPS.
I think I will watch the PBS waltzes from Austria tonight. Earlier this evening I thought I was dreaming when I saw SDPB-TV with the NY Philharmonic with YoYo Ma playing next to an accordianist. First time I have seen a squeeze box in that situation. Lawrence Welk and Myron Floren probably chuckled if there is a heaven or hell.
May we all have happy, peaceful, healthy and prosperous new year. Good Luck too.
And remember, GOOD NEIGHBORS DRIVE SOBER.
