    Shop and church, also. Getting some cleaning and a little rearranging done in the shop. Behind on starting my next project, maybe because I can't decide which one to start next.

    'Bout the same... by the time you get my age, new years night is just another night... we may stay up long enough to see the new year in since our normal bedtime is between 11:30 pm and midnight... but no party.

    Tomorrow the wife will make the traditional New Year's meal... I'm a southerner and my mother always had black eyed peas on NYD...my wife is of polish descent and her family always had cabbage on NYD... she'll combine the two in some tasty dish. She's a pretty darn good cook... I kept my weight low at about 155 until I married her (I was 50) when we married... the first year I gained 35 lbs... second year another 10... it's been tough staying under 200 these past 17 years..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Same here. I'll probably be staring at the insides of my eyelids about 9:30

    Starting on the high chairs tomorrow and trying to post pics of the bed I made for my grand daughter.

    I'm hoping the rain will let up enough to let us see the first New Years Eve blue moon in 20 some years...if they only come along every 20 years we might not see another Wishing all here a warm, healthy and prosperous 2010!

    Last night was fantastic out here. With the snow cover on the ground, and the air was so clear I could see for miles and miles in the moonlight. The mountains in the distances looked like paintings. Didn't even need the headlights on the garden tractor as I took out the garbage, and I could still see my goofy lab running around in the 'dark'.

    Tonight we're going over to see some friends, have an offer to spend the night, but not planning to drink anyway.

    Need to put some new u-joints in the new/old Tahoe, have a new door handle and a speaker cover to install, also bought a new stereo for it. I need to figure out some storage for the back. First vehicle I've ever owned that hasn't had a tool box...or a bed for that matter.

    Will be working on the fireplace/entertainment center Sunday and having dinner with the kids as usual.

    Working on a maple & walnut platform rocker for my soon-to-be one year old grand niece.

    BTW, it's not a new decade yet. That's NEXT YEAR.

    Think about it - was there ever a 'year zero?' The first century started with "1, A.D." so the first decade was 1~10, not 0~9.

    The 21st century actually began in 2001 - in spite of all the hype about Y2K. So, this is the LAST YEAR for the FIRST DECADE of the 21st CENTURY.
