Good morning. The sun is shining, the rain has stopped (it was just a light rain) and a lot of the ice has melted in our yard. What a pretty day to end the year. Enjoy the day folks. You'll never see this day again. When the clock strikes midnight tonight, a brand new year will begin.
I just took a short break. My little birds were at my door, letting me know that they needed food. So, I took out some bread, peanuts, bird seed, and bread with peanut butter for everyone. (the squirrels too) As I look out now, there is a chickadee, a tufted titmouse and a sparrow all enjoying the peanut butter bread. This makes my eyes happy.
I thought I would have some fun so I went on-line looking for a photo of New Year's Eve, 1939. Here's a photo of the crowd gathered in Times Square (New York) that night to cheer the new year in together. I was almost two months old.
While I was searching, I found another interesting photo. This was New Year's Eve the year before, 1938. Can you guess who is behind the Mickey Mouse mask?
If you guessed the FBI Director, J. Edward Hoover, then you were absolutely correct. Maybe he was camera shy?
While I was poking around on the internet, I also learned that I was born on a Saturday. Then I read the poem, "Monday's Child." This explains my work traits, which I have passed along to my children. What day were you born on?
I'm looking out my door, and now there is a chickadee and a downy woodpecker sharing the peanut butter bread treat. Mankind could learn so much from our feathered friends.
Folks, I have to tell you that my little Pogo has been having a wonderful time with his new chair. He spends half the night sleeping on it, and the other half sleeping on his sofa. He is such a happy little guy with his own little kingdom.
Today I'm enjoying a NCIS marathon on TV. I can't believe I missed so many episodes. It's a great way to see the year out. Also, my hand is starting to feel much better now, so maybe I'll start crocheting a bit again.
Folks, if you party tonight, please don't drink if you are driving. Take public transportation, call a friend or hire a driver. I'm hoping to see all of you back here in the New Year.
Now I think I'll go play with my little guy. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous New Year's Eve day and night.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! SEE YOU IN 2016!
Hugs, Edna B.
