“New Year’s is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.” – Mark Twain
We poured ourselves into bed about 3:00 AM. I downloaded all 450 pictures just to get them into a safe place and then sleep came easily.
We rose at 7:30 AM sharp to watch the parade and it was pretty good although the ending was a tad anti-climatic. Seemed fitting however. Reminded us of Jerry Brown’s choo-choo train to no-where. $100,000,000,000 dollars for a “fast” train with no start or end point which will, like the parade, break down all the time…ah, politics!
We worked in the website for a while… you can take a peek…it will improve over the next week as other pictures come in and we read and re-read what we have said!
We just rested all day and watched some TV at nigh before going to bed EARLY!
