We went across the street to our neighbors to spent New Year's Eve. We went over about 4 in the afternoon. Kelly had the table set with all kinds of appetizers. Salmon pate, mushroom pate, ham salad, cheeses and crackers, blackened shrimp, dips and some I'm sure I'm forgetting. I took a plate of shrimp appetizers over. We had a fun time with our conversation going from an argument about which is better the old cartoons or the new ones. We ended up talking about the Mafia. What a range of conversations. Aggie, the dog, was busy playing with her shadow and carrying a jelly bean around the house. Dan brought up a bottle of champagne before we left and we toasted the New Year. We were tired and got into our comfortable clothes and just plopped in front of the TV. PBS had a fairly new Frank Sinatra show and then it was Paul McCartney at the White House. Some pretty good programs for a change on New Year's Eve. We went to bed just before midnight...went to sleep listening to the young ones down the street shooting off fireworks.
