I made a comment on Neil’s (NBeener) blog entry, Neils blog entry re New Years
and after looking at it, decided
it probably would make a good entry in my Comments of the Day blog topic.
So apologies to Neil, I copied my own comment, with minor changes, from his blog to my blog….......

New Year, day 1:
.......staring at the computer screen, trying, with more or less success to wake up. At least the first cup of coffee for the New Year is a good one. That’s probably a good omen.
Went to bed at 2130hrs yesterday, Dick Cain got to bed at 10:53pm, if early to bed is good enuf for Dick, it is good enuf for me. It’s all relative to time zones anyway. Although I went to bed before Dick, at least by the clock, he was in bed a couple of hours prior to me. So if I am going to beat Dick to bed, all I have to do is lay down on the job. That should be easy.
And Dick probably got up before me, even though I got up at 0324hrs. I got up to drag a poor little guy out of his swimming pool, where he had been splashing around for 9 months. And I am not sure he was very happy about it, what a cry baby. But it was a good way for him to start the new year, not dressed in quite as fancy clothes as Neil and Diana, in fact he was in his birthday suit, but that seemed appropriate enough for the occasion. He may have been pissed off cause he didn’t get to exit through the main entrance, I dragged him out through his own special, one time use door, known as a lower uterine segment transverse cesarean section, almost wasn’t big enough. Then I closed it up again.
Oh well, that little guy didn’t even say thank you, I think he was mad at me in fact. But all in all not a bad way to start the New Year.
........if I could only wake up……..another cup of coffee is in order……...........
.......hope you all have a Happy New Year……..
