New Years Eve Plans

Anyone have anything good planned?
We couldn't get a sitter so it looks like another quiet evening at home. I'm not the partier I once was, but one night out of the year isn't asking for too much. Oh well, just that many fewer pounds to work off after the holidays!

Catching up, got here late, but...looks like I will follow suit, sitting home, avoiding the drunk drivers, may have some bubbly, then New Years Day we are having collards (have to eat those for folding money in the new year) and black eyed peas for good luck. :) The hog jowl is a must in the black eyed peas by the way. :) WE usually go to Alabama and get fireworks, but we just don't have the cash this year.

We belong to a group of couples who were all college-mates back in the late 60's - early 70's. We all live fairly close to one another so each couple has one 'event' during the year. One couple has July 4th with BBQ & beer. Another has the Friday after Thanksgiving with different soups, breads & beer. Another couple has Super Bowl Sunday with various chilies, snacks & beer. We have eagle day in Feb. If the Mississippi is frozen enough the eagles all congregate below Lock & Dam 26 to fish in the tailwaters. For that event we have my chicken soup, snacks & beer. Unfortunately the couple who has New Year's Eve is the farthest from us. About 55 miles down in Imperial. I usually end the night's revelry about 9:30 - 10:00 after MAYBE two beers. We'll head out for home about 1:00 or so. Surprisingly, I've never had any trouble staying awake for the drive. That's good because then I'm alert to watch for the drunks. Everybody have a happy and SAFE time of it, OK?

Peace & Quiet rat-cher at home, like some others
I've done enough partying to last 2 lifetimes.

NO intentions of starting again.

Another quiet eve at home. Our family tradition is seafood dinner New Years Eve. Shrimp, clams, crab, mussles, etc. Play a board game and watch the ball drop on TV.

I'm sleeping.
Then on New Year's day we'll be going to Mom & Dad's for our Christmas gathering!
Stay safe, everybody.

I hate driving on New Years Eve and the wee hours of New Years Day. Too many drunks on the road. We'll have to be careful though because we are going to a freind's place for a kid-freindly fun evening. Anyone going out, please drive safe and be aware of everyone else on the road.

Going to stay home and behave. My little county has had 15 traffic deaths in '04, most by drinking and driving. I don't even like to drive at night any more. I'm not a teetotaler, but I know enough to bring it home in a sack.

Sure won't be the same on TV with Dick Clark in the hospital. There's a fella who just doesn't let his age slow him down very often. Jim.

I partied enought in my younger days to make up for a life time! I do not like to go out on nights people like to drink alot on and risk it. I will stay home like I allways do and probley just stay up till New York celibrates the New Year and call it a night. Being on the West Coast I will still get to bed early. Happy New Years to all!

I would really like to stay home, but we are going to my dad's home which is very close to us. We'll leave home at around 10pm. My dad is a cheft so I always look forward to his cooking!
His new wife is a dahhhlin'..a really wonderful person. It so shows that she loves it when we are visiting them that I feel really welcome. We are going to have a nice time with them and the rest of both of their families for New Years Eve.

We will gather at a friend's house with about 20 other folks for a marathon card party. Mostly Pitch, but I'll get a poker table going for sure. This year my newly divorced brother will be with us, hope to keep his spirits up. This is usually a really good party. We are all too old to get into any trouble.

No big plans here either. Got an appointment in the morning at the lawyers office to close on buying this place (90acres, old trailer house, old barn, nice cattle shed and a nice pole shed). I'm thinking I'll pick up a bottle of cheap wine and we'll celebrate quietly at home. Neither of us likes to go out much, and this way we can avoid the drunk drivers too

That's the one day, I DON'T party if I have to drive. We make up a mess of food, and kick back and goof off all night, I don't even much worry about seeing in the new year. I know it'll be there when I get up.

Hawk    Posted 12-27-2004 at 05:43:19       [Reply]  [No Email]

evening at home for us, wife got the party life out of her system in her collage days and i have all but quit, though i have been known to have a sip or two of shine around a campfire over in the ozarks.
