Freshening Up

I am so bored.  I think I’ll call Cathy and see what she is doing today.  Maybe we could go shopping.  I really don’t need anything but it’s never too early to get a start on things.  The kids and grandkids birthdays are coming up soon.  I hate they are all bunched together over the course of two months.  Not good planning on my part or theirs, she chuckled to herself. 

She couldn’t get Cathy so she decided she would just go it alone.  She showered and dressed, left a note for Brody in case he got home ahead of her and was out the door.  She walked around the mall for what seemed like hours and had very little to show for it.  She spied a salon and thought I deserve a pedicure.  My feet hurt and this will be a nice treat.  She entered the salon and was greeted by the receptionist asking what they could do for her.  She laughed and said make me over.  The receptionist took her name and asked her to have a seat.  Two minutes later out comes this beautiful lady. She was about her age, tall, slim, not a wrinkle anywhere.  She had silver hair that was cut into a bob that just framed her face and had beautiful icy blue eyes.

“Hello, my name is Lucinda.  I understand you want a makeover”

“Oh, I was just kidding, I just came in for a pedicure.”

“Sometimes when we joke about things it really is our heart’s desire speaking out” Lucinda responded.

“I think you are probably right about that but I don’t have the time or money right now to be made over” Julie said

“We have a package right now that is very affordable”.  She handed the brochure to Julie and told her to let her know what she decided. When Julie looked at the brochure she was very surprised to see how reasonable the package really was.  It was much less than she would have ever imagined.  Brody would still go through the roof though.  She sat there looking at the brochure and the longer she looked the more that little voice in her head urged her on. That was the voice that also always landed her over Brody’s lap.

Julie walked up to the desk and told the receptionist she was ready to be made over.  The receptionist must have buzzed Lucinda because she appeared in a moment’s time.  Lucinda took her to the back of the salon and into a private room.  She was handed a gown that opened in the back and was told to remove her clothing but not to don the gown just yet.  There was a knock at the door and another woman walked in.

“I’m your masseuse.  My name is Terri.  Will you please get up on the table?”

Julie was up there in a minute.  It had been forever since she had a massage and she could really use it.  It was then she remembered last night’s spanking and hoped she didn’t have any lingering marks on her behind.  Terri prodded and kneaded the sore muscles as Julie relaxed into her own little world.  All too soon, Terri was bringing her back to reality.

“You can get up when you’re ready and then go take a hot shower, some of that soreness should be alleviated she said with a grin; then you can don the gown and someone will be in give you a facial.”  Julie knew then she probably had a telltale mark or two on her butt.

During the facial, Julie drifted off again and thought about Brody.  It really was love at first sight for her.  He was her brother’s college roommate and the first time she saw him she was smitten.  He was as tall as her brother, a little over six feet with dark brown hair with reddish glints.  The color women are always trying to mimic but never achieve.  He had beautiful hazel eyes that were always smiling.  He also always had a girlfriend much to her chagrin.  A couple of times he came home with Jody for a weekend and she would act as his date if Jody had a girlfriend at the time.  She lived for these times. One weekend during his senior year he came home with Jody and they were to have one of our “dates”.  Only this time, it really turned out to be a real date and after that there was no going back.  They married a year later and he has been my knight ever since.  A knight that takes care of his lady even if it means taking her across his lap now and again she said to herself.  He was still handsome even though there was a little silver at his temples and a few crinkles around his eyes.  He was the outdoorsy type and always active so even though he worked in a suit and tie he was not soft. All female eyes turned to him when he walked into a room.  He exuded confidence and charm.

On the way to the wash basin she took time to grab her phone and text Brody that they would be going out to dinner that evening. She determined she was going to knock his socks off.  She told the hairdresser to give her a new look and gave her carte blanche. She was given a short messy cut, some reddish glints and streaks.  She looked ten years younger.  She had her toes and fingernails frenched. The makeup artist took another ten years off her face. She purchased many of the products the cosmetologist used on her.  

By the time she left that salon she felt marvelous.  She was passing by Contretemps and saw a dress in the window she thought fit her new look.  She went in, tried it on and purchased it along with the gorgeous suede boots that went perfectly with the dress.  She hoped she got home before Brody because her plan was to put on her new dress and boots along with some sexy underwear for their date tonight.  That way, once he found out how much she had spent today, there could be some hope for her bottom.

She had just finished dressing when Brody walked in the door.  He did a double take

“Who are you, what are you doing in my house and what have you done with my wife” he jokingly asked.

She smiled and walked over to him and nibbled on his ear.  She stood back, pirouetted around and said “Do you like?”

“Honey, I love you and you always look beautiful to me.  But, I see that you think you look wonderful too and that is something we have our disagreements about isn’t it”.  He was so right; she never thought she deserved him and always wondered if he settled in choosing her. She always had self-esteem issues and although she was better, every once in a while it reared its ugly head. She had received many a spanking over that very issue.

“Let me go freshen up a bit so that I look good enough to escort you to dinner this evening, my pet. We’ll go to Rapscallions so you can make a grand entrance and every eye in the restaurant will be on you, my pretty lady.”

“If every eye in the restaurant is on me, it’s because you are on my arm, Sir”.

“Let’s not start that okay or I just might have to give you a couple of spanks to remind you of just how wonderful you really are to me and to our family.”

She told him no that wouldn’t be necessary, she knew she looked good this evening.

They went to dinner and were given a quiet booth and they sat side by side.  His hand kept traveling up and down her leg – from the top of her boot to the top of her thigh, each time moving her dress ever upward and his finger inching ever closer to that secret place. She was embarrassed and kept moving his hand, but it kept coming back.  She whispered in his ear that if he didn’t stop he was going to be sorry.  He whispered back he didn’t think so; that’s when she grabbed his precious jewels and he almost jumped out of his seat.  He chuckled and told her if she did that again, he would turn her over his knee right here in the restaurant and spank her bottom.  She was so turned on by his words and the thought of him doing that she couldn’t wait to finish dinner and get home.

She passed on dessert and coffee.  Brody knew how excited she was and kept tormenting her with his touch.  He ordered both coffee and dessert.  She wanted to kill him – he was doing this on purpose.  He would pay for this.  She excused herself and when she returned from the restroom she handed him something of hers to keep in his pocket. When he opened his palm to look at the object, it was her thong which was not exactly dry. Now he was the one anxious to leave.  When he called the waiter to get the check she told him she changed her mind and decided to have coffee and dessert after all. 

“Is that okay with you, sweetie?” she asked coyly.

“If that is the way you want it darling” he replied.

For the next hour they lunged and parried and drove each other to distraction.  When he finally paid the check and got her out of there and in the elevator he pushed the stop button.  They were all over each other.  He pushed up her dress and unzipped his fly.  She brought her legs up around his waist as held her up and entered her.  They were in the throes of passion when they heard a voice

“Is everything okay in there” over the elevator speaker.  At first they didn’t respond but then a moment later

“Is everything okay in there or should I call 911”.  That’s when he responded they were fine.

“Why don’t you get a room”, the voice said.

He and Julie began giggling and then it turned to full blown laughter.  She lowered her legs, he zipped his pants and pushed the down button.  When they got to the ground floor, they could hear the snide comments as they passed the reception desk.

Once home there was a trail of clothing from the front door to the bedroom.  After they had finished what they had begun in the elevator she turned to him and said:

“So was my $500 makeover worth it”.

“Every penny and then some”, he said and smacked her bottom as he followed her into the bedroom.

An Epiphany

It rained and rained yesterday.  So out of the ordinary for Arizona.  It was desperately needed, they were so far behind in rainfall for the year, season, whatever.  It's usually brown in this part of the state but after the freeze of last week, it's even browner, if that's possible.  This rain should go a long way to greening things up a little until the heat of the summer takes its toll. I love the sound of rain falling on the roof.  I always want to cuddle up with a good book and a roaring fire. The roaring fire was out but I found  a good book on my Kindle.  I thought I might even get hubby to play a game but he turned on the tv to the golf tournment and when that was fogged out, he turned on one of those shoot em up's he so fond of.  Guess I'm out of luck. 

I loved this joke.  I really laughed out loud.  It must be the cynic in me.

My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day.

He has his food prepared for him.

His meals are provided at no cost to him.

He visits the Dr. once a year for his checkup, and again during the year, if any medical needs arise.

For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.

He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.
If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.
He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep.
He receives these accommodations absolutely free.
He is living like a king, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.
All of his costs are picked up by others who earn a living.
I was just thinking about all this and suddenly it hit me like a ton of bricks.........

My dog is a CONGRESSMAN !!!!!!!

Thanks, Cat

Another week is almost over.  OMG, doesn't seem possible.  Somewhere along the way I've managed to get a head cold.  I hate it.  For most of my life I was like Typhoid Mary ( I passed on to everyone else but never got sick myself).  Somewhere along the way that changed too.  Then, when I needed it the most,  our internet went out and I went into withdrawal.  LOL

I usually post on Friday and really didn't have anything much to say, then I came across Giggles, Grins and Reflections and Cat's Q's and A's .  Thanks Cat, instant post.  Since you gave me the idea I figured I would play by your rules.  So my answers are:

 And the questions are… (my answers are in Bold)
  1. Are you a morning person or night owl? Morning person
  2. If you could meet someone famous who is still living, who would it be? President Barack H. Obama
  3. Spank-o or Spank-no? Spank-o
  4. What color underwear do you have on right now? Commando
  5. What is your favorite genre of music? Oldies, rock n' roll, classical, some country.  I get into whatever is playing at the time. 
  6. What is your favorite implement to be spanked with? So far, the doggin bat, although the belt comes in a close second.
  7. What is the first thing you notice about a man you just met? Hands and if he turns around his butt.  (I'm old but I am not dead).
If you would like to play along, feel free to copy and past it on your own blog.

Make it a great day and see you later for more Aimless Ramblings.

The Earth Moved

Today is a big day in the USA.  Inauguration Day.  There was a time I was a pretty political person.  Now I am just a cynic. Does that come with age?  Everyone complains and I always say we are the one's to blame.  We continue to re-elect the same ones over and over, why should we expect different results.  Nobody ever owns up to voting for an incumbent but somebody's doing it. Don't get me wrong.  I love us and the US.  I may be prejudiced but I think we still have the best system around, otherwise why would people keep trying like hell to get in.

And you thought you came by for a story.  Well,  here it is.  Hope it doesn't disappoint.
I penned this story back in November after experiencing  a little tremor when we were in California.  

Josh heard a low rumbling sound and yelled out when the cat jumped off his chest with claws open. The bed was shaking and when he looked over Jennifer wasn’t next to him.  He wondered what the hell was going on. It took a few seconds to realize they were in the middle of an earthquake.  It had been a while since he had experienced one.  Jennifer appeared in the doorway with eyes wide as saucers. She hurdled toward him and flew into his open arms.  He told her to relax it was just an earthquake and it would be over in a minute.  She was trembling.

“I told you I didn’t want to move here, Josh.  Why did you make us? she said.

“Honey, let’s not go all through this again.  We’ve discussed it to death and I just don’t want to hear it anymore”.

She buried her head in his chest.  The earth had stopped shaking but she was still trembling. He laid there stroking her head. He turned on the tv so he could hear where the epicenter was and if they expected any aftershocks. The phone hadn’t rung so it couldn’t have been too bad.  He worked for a county agency and if it had been bad he was sure to be called to come into work. The newscaster said initial reports had the earthquake centered in the Simi Valley and it had registered 5.6 on the Richter scale.  A moderate earthquake and so far there had been no reported injuries and just minor damage.

“Honey, it’s over.  There may be an aftershock or two but it won’t even be as bad as this one.. I’ve lived through lots of these growing up here in California.  Don’t be afraid, okay. Let’s get up, get a shower and stroll down to the Farmer’s Market on Fairfax for some breakfast and pick up something to take the Thompson’s later.”

“Are you sure, because I don’t want to get scalded if I get in the shower and something happens” she said.

“Honey, relax.  I’ll hop in there with you.”

She hopped in the shower and he followed her in.  He started lathering her with soap. His hands caressed her bare skin and couldn’t resist brushing her nipples. When they were fully aroused   he turned her around and had her face the wall with the pretext of washing her back.  He continued to tease her nipples as she turned to face the wall.  He lathered his hands and began washing her back and buttocks.  He fingered her honey spot and she jumped.  He slapped her backside and put her back against the wall.  His hands moved down the inside of her thighs to her calves.  When he bent down to get her feet, he turned her around and his tongue began flicking her labia.   She was moaning and squirming with pleasure.  He stood up and turned her back to the wall.  She yelled ouch as he gave her behind three sharp spanks. 

“Okay, he said, my turn to get washed”

She did as she was told and began lathering his body.  When she reached his backside she pinched him hard and then just continued down his legs and calves.  When she turned him back to face her, she slowly inched her way up to his sac and grabbed them hard as her tongue licked his now engorged member.  She watched him lose some of his rigidity and then nipped the tip of his penis.

“That’s it,” he said as he whirled her around and over his hip.  “You want to play, you’ll pay the price” he said laughingly.

His palm landed on her backside with hard stinging slaps.  When he felt she was chastised enough, he turned her back around and began giving her ears and neck whisker soft kisses.  Her breath was coming in short gasps as he finished washing and rinsing her hair.  When he was finished, he picked her up and carried her to the bed where they finished what they had started in the shower.  When they were both sated, the sheets were soaked and they both needed another shower.

“This time stay out” she told him.  “Take your own shower” she laughed.  As the water caught her mouth she squirted him with the spray. He told her she was really pushing her luck and she had better behave if they were ever going to the get to the Farmer’s Market.

She enjoyed the Farmer’s Market and loved nothing more than strolling down there, hand in hand with her lover of thirty-five years. There were so many booths and choices it was sometimes overwhelming to pick just a few things.  Josh squeezed her hand and directed her over to a kiosk that had the sensual creams and lotions they had found and enjoyed. She started tingling and felt a gush of wetness in her panties.  She couldn’t believe what was happening to them.  They had been the usual middle aged couple that had sex probably once or twice a month for the last fifteen years or so.  They loved each other but had slipped into the typical patterns of living separate lives together.  It often happened in long marriages and when the children left home there were lots of empty spaces. They had become more like roommates rather than a loving couple.  But not anymore, now they were more like newlyweds. 

It had happened by accident.  They were having an argument about moving here to California and it had been ongoing when Josh told her that sometimes he just wanted to take her over his knee and spank the devil out of her.  She retorted with something like you wouldn’t dare and guess what, he dared.  He led her over to the couch, pulled her over his knee and began paddling her butt.  She was kicking and screaming obscenities at him which he ignored.  When he was finished and let her up she was dancing around and rubbing her butt.  She was furious with him but realized that she was also feeling a little frisky.  He later told her he was surprised she hadn’t taken a swing at him. She told him she wanted to but that wetness between her legs required something different.  She had grabbed his hand and propelled him to the bedroom.  When she began reaching for his cock the surprise on his face was priceless.  She wished she had a camera to preserve that look for all time.  That was the beginning of their newly recharged sex life.

Now here they were in California and although she had not wanted to move it was better than she thought it would be.  Josh had been offered a job here at a salary that was far above the one he had back home. Of course, living expenses were higher but they were still ahead of the game. It wouldn’t have been as enticing except that he had been told that his old job was being eliminated and that he would have to either take a large pay cut or be laid off.  He opted for the move because at fifty-six years old there weren’t a lot of opportunities.  It was tough leaving their old life behind - the kids and grandkids all lived within a two hour drive of their old home and she missed having Sunday dinners and drop in visits.  Now she was relegated to skype, telephone calls and texts. 

She was surprised at how well she had adjusted.  It was more of a casual outdoor lifestyle here.  The weather was perfect all year long. They had made some friends and had great neighbors. She would never admit it to Josh but moving here was one of the best things they could have done for themselves.  They rediscovered each other and got back what they had lost.  Once in a while, in moments of weakness and missing the kids, she would revert back to the argument of why they had to move.  That was what had happened this morning but Josh joining her in the shower was just what she needed to smooth her out and make her forget about the earthquake and everything else. She discovered she loved having the earth move under her feet just like the Carole King song.

Sunday, Sunday

Hubby and I had a date night last night, dinner and dancing (the kind you do in public)  The food was good, two lemon drop martini's delish, the music enjoyable and being with  my handsome husband, priceless.   Things have heated up along with the temperature.  

Since this is Sunday, thought I would share this Nun's Story.

A nun was sitting at the airport, waiting for her flight to Chicago.  She looked over in the corner and saw one of those weight machines that tells your fortune and thought to herself, "I'll give it a try and see what it tells me', she went over to the machine, stepped up on the scale and put her nickel in.  Out came a card that read, You are a nun, you weight 128 lbs, and you are going to Chicago.

The nun sat back down.  She told herself that the machine probably gives the same card to everyone.  The more she thought about it the more curious she got so she decided to try it again she went back to the machine and again put her nickel in, and out came a card that read: 'You are a nun, you weight 128 lbs, you are going to Chicago and you are going to play a fiddle.'

The nun says to herself, "I know this is wrong.  I have never played a musical instrument even once in my life.' She sat back down.  From out of nowhere a cowboy came over and sat down, putting his fiddle case on the seat between them.  Without thinking, she opened the cowboy's case, took out the fiddle, and started playing beautiful music.  Surprised at what she had done, she looked over at the machine thinking.  "This is incredible, I've got to try this again'.  Back to the machine she went, put in another nickle, and another card came out.  It read:  'You are a nun, you weight 128 lbs, you are going to Chicago and you are going to break wind'.  

Now she knows the machine is wrong, as she thought to herself, 'I've never broken wind in public a single time in my life.' but getting down off the machine she slipped, and as she was straining to keep herself from falling to the floor, she broke wind.  Absolutely stunned, she sat back down and looked at the machine.  She said to herself, 'this is truly remarkable.  I've got to try this again'.  She went back to the machine, put in another nickel and another card came out.  It read, 'You are a nun, you weight 128 lbs..  You have fiddled and farted around and missed your flight to Chicago.

Enjoy your day everyone.  Tomorrow is story day as well as Inaugural Day in the US.  Some comparison huh. See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.

A Life Sentence

Things have been pretty quiet around here.  It's finally warmed up, thank heavens. It
was actually warm enough to enjoy being outside today. Went to the movies again the other day. We've been to more movies in the last two months than in the last two years.  Yesterday I saw Promise Land.  I enjoyed it.

Finally had some at home fun over the weekend. We turned the heater up all the way but I was pretty warm in no time.  I commented to someone that I think hubby took his team's loss frustration out on my tush.  It could have been because it was the first connection of the new year but it was stingy.  We hadn't forgotten the dance steps either.

It's hard to believe we're coming up to two months here next week and next month it will be a year in the RV.  Doesn't seem possible.  The funny part is I am starting to get antsy about moving on.  I guess we're not ready to settle someplace just yet. I really don't think it will be in Arizona.  My mind just keeps drifiting to Texas. Could it be any colder than it was here, I don't know.  I would love So. California but it's so darned expensive and the kids aren't even there anymore. Where they are now is not all that warm in the winter either.  As a matter of fact, on a street not too far from their house I saw a road sign that said "ICY".  Scared the heck out of me. Of course, the weather has been so strange everywhere who knows what will happen next year.

Wow, I really am just rambling on here aren't I.  Sorry.  Here's a funny that should  provide a laugh.  I know I did.

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee. 'What's the matter, dear?' she whispers as she steps into the room, 'Why are you down here at this time of night?’ The husband looks up from his coffee, 'It's the 20th Anniversary of the day we met'.

She can't believe he has remembered and starts to tear up. The husband continues, 'Do you remember 20 years ago when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only 16,' he says solemnly. Once again, the wife is touched to tears. 'Yes, I do' she replies. The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily. 'Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?' 'Yes, I remember' said the wife, lowering herself into the chair besidehim. The husband continued. 'Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, "Either you marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20 years?' 'I remember that, too' she replied softly. He wiped another tear from his cheek and said "I would have gotten out today

I'm halfway through another football weekend.  Yeah. My team lost yesterday so I don't care about the rest of them. We are going over to friends today so the guys can yell and scream and we can do what we want.

It has been so cold here. It was 25 degrees here this morning.  Sorry, but that is too freakin cold. I thought it was supposed to be warmer here.  So far, I was so very wrong. I was talking with my friend the other day and it was 81 where we used to live.  Oh, I am missing that.  That and the sea.  I think I am having serious seashore withdrawal. 

All's quiet here, not much playtime. Our toy chest is gathering dust. I think its the doldrums that usually sets in after the holidays. Hubby and I went to separate movies together on Friday.  He saw Django and I went to see Zero Dark Thirty.  It was a good movie and a testament to the tenaciousness of the CIA staffer that finally broke through the maze and found Osama Bin Ladin.  Hubby liked Django but I've never been a fan of Quentin Tarantino movies.  

Not much else comes to mind.

7 Rules of Life

Thought these rules were worth passing on.

See you later for more Aimless Ramblings

Saturday, January 5, 2013


A senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership.  Taking off down the road he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.  "Amazing" he thought as he flew down I-95 pushing the pedal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror he saw a State Trooper, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.  He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120.  Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing?.  I'm too old for this!." and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival.

Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to the Corvette.  He looked at his watch, then said, "Sir, my shift is over in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason for speeding - a reason I've never heard before - I'll let you go".

The old gentleman paused then said  "Three years ago my wife ran off with a State Trooper.  I thought you were bringing her back".

"Have a good day, Sir", replied the trooper
The owner of a golf course was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask for some mathemetical help. He said to a member of his staff, "Y'all graduated from the University and I need some help.  If I was to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"  Someone in back piped up with "Everything but my earrings". 

A man had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of and behind the car.  Then he got back in the car to wait.  A passerby studied the scene as he drove by, and was so curious he turned around and went back.  He asked the fellow what the problem was.  The man replied:  "I got a flat tahr".  The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?"
The man responded.  "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back.  I never did understand it neither."


A state trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65.  The troooper asked "Got any ID?"
The driver replied, "Bout whut?"

The Sheriff pulled up next to the guy unloading garbage out of his pick up into the ditch.  The Sheriff asked, "Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch?  Don't you see
that sign over your head."
"Yep", he replied. "That's why I'm dumpin it here, 'cause it says 'Fine For Dumping Garbage'".

These made me laugh - you know at one time or another we've all come across situations where  people have left you scratching your head in disbelief.  I am sorry to say I probably have been one of them at one time or another. 

Another football weekend coming up - will have to find something to do - my team is in a "by", but hubby will be watching regardless.  

Don't forget to stop by on Monday for story day.  This week's story will be in two parts and it is a sequel to one that was previously posted.

Have a great weekend and see you later for more Aimless Ramblings.

Blog Changes

Some of you may have noticed a post titled Sunny Girl's Fiction which was quickly deleted.  This was an error on my part while trying to improve the appearance of the blog.  With Hermione's help I have been able to list all of my stories in a new gadget and "clean" them up a little. She is slowly taking away my techNo status.  Thank you so much.

The list was getting a little unwieldy leaving it the way it was.  New Year, New Look.

Another Year in the Making

We had a very quiet New Year's Eve this year.  We went out for an early dinner and then to the movies.  We went to see The New 40.  It was the funniest movie we have seen in a long, long time.  I know hubby thought it was a "chick flick" but he humored me and ended up laughing as much as I did. If you get a chance you have to see that movie.

Lots of fireworks at midnight.  I thought they just did that in the south.  My bad.   The funny thing is is that it is illegal to set off fireworks here but it is not illegal to sell them. Another one of those ridiculous things that are beyond comprehension.We only watched for a little while because it was too cold to stay out long.  It was about 35 degrees.  I know, I know, but we're not used to it. We had some fireworks of our own, just sparklers though, no firecrackers or roman candles.

New Year's Day was a quadruple F day.  Friends, fun, football and food.  I think the scale may break if I get on it in the morning.  Going to have to wait a few days and go on a food austerity program first. 

Thank you everyone for all of the wonderful New Year greetings. Hope you all had a safe and happy New Year and that it just keeps getting better and better. 

See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.
