New Year's Eve 2015/16

Happy New Year!!

Sydney had a peaceful and quite glorious New Year's Evening - temp 22C or so, mainly clear sky (and no dreadful incidents)

The second photo below, Welcome to Country, is the (firework version of the) Aboriginal Flag included as part of the traditional welcome.

The fifth photo shows the image of a coat hanger in the middle of the bridge, that's the Sydneysider slang name for the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

How is/was your new year celebration?

A quiet night at home and not on the road!

Our daughter has a friend over (they've been BFFs since 5th grade, eleven years ago). This has been a traditional get-together for a few years, now. They'll probably watch some Disney movies and complain about how young they were then and how old they've become.

Happy New Year to all Mobile Readers!
It's now 2016 on Florida's Space Coast. Temp has dropped to 73F with some more seasonal temps to come on Saturday (with rain). Spent the evening with friends and family (prime rib with coconut cake for dessert). Lovely end to 2015. Now at home listening to and watching neighbor's fireworks, drinking Irish coffee and wishing so hard for peace on earth/good will toward man in this new year.

But if you give the plum wine to the Spawn, you and 5W can have fun later. Lol.

Yes,
I was nice even if I thought about relocating a couple of neighbors guns.
Didn't appreciate them shooting at midnight.

Good grief!

People randomly firing guns just isn't legal here.
