New Year's Eve: Stay Home or Go Out!!

I am staying home and watching the ball drop on TV. Usually, I don't make any plans because the weather is so unpredictable this time of year. Also, the only place to go to where I live is over 20 miles away.

So, I was curious as to what other folks at DC are doing for New Years Eve?

BTW, Happy New Year's to all DC'ers!!

I'm alone, Sierra. Well, except for Ashley, Tween, Sally, Chessie Lou, Miss Augie, and Miss Rodeo (my inside kitties).

Thelma, Violet, Squeakers, Tumble and Miss Chiefy are snuggled in their quarters outside.

Buck and I never went anywhere on New Year's Eve because we lived in an area that was full of drunken crazies. We had more fun staying at home.

Happy New Year to you, my dear. I'll celebrate with you.

Wow! We're just a bunch of party animals! There was one option not on the poll and that would be stay home and go to bed early!
I'll probably stay up but not necessarily watch the ball drop. I'm not sure what I'll be doing.

Home for me! Quiet supper, champagne, and I'll try to stay awake till midnight. Not much going on in my tiny town...sometimes the "boys" save some fireworks from the July 4 celebration and set them off on NYE. We'll see...

Geaux Tigers!

Jabbur, I also forgot the option for those of us, like Buckytom, that are working. Sorry, BT.

Well, I've always gone over to my next door neighbor's house, where I meet with other neighbors to ring in the New Year.

And I did go over there tonight for a couple of hours, had fun, but left early since my cold is still making me feel like a "bag of smashed holes" (to paraphrase my brother's colorful expression).

I'm heading to bed. I trust that the big Waterford ball will drop just fine without me.

Happy New Year, everyone!

We always stay home, eat wings and watch the Chick-fil-a bowl. I would imagine Uncle Bob is pretty happy about now and so am I. I may live in Atlanta but I'm an SEC fan through and through. Happy New Year!
