The End Only Starts A New Beginning

Good day to you all, this is my very first post of 2008. I put up a small one of course on New Years Eve, just well wishes and all. Then I took yesterday off, went home to Mom's, and had the usual "Black Eyed Peas" for lunch which is supposed to be good luck and all... Food was good, and two other sisters showed up so we almost had a little family thing going on... Mom seemed happy to have some of her daughters together... Deb, the one who just had a birthday on 12/28 if you recall, she brought her dog "GT" with her. Jeanne, well being such a "Big E" fan, her English Bulldog is named "Elvis", so he was with her. I felt left out not bringing my Salvador Dali namesake!!! :)

Anyways, I think maybe Tink (of Pickled Beef) had planned to do something similar with the WWC this week, and I'm not sure... So I will put my official entry in nonetheless. I didn't have time to give any thought to this week's words, "Brown" and "Pattern", but I will share with you instead my slide show of the shots that I TOOK on New Year's Eve (which has both brown AND patterns everywhere!). We had a great time, good food, music by The Misfits, Black Flag, Sex Pistols, Mr. Bungle, and a few others. In attendance were Myself and Mr. J of course, Meg and Rob, Kim and Allen, and Richie's friends, Chris and Kenneth... a few more were aware and invited but that's who showed up.

We were well blessed to get the chance to hear from Four Dinners on the phone several times, and he was "well pissed" (that's English talk for "Hey everyone, I'm Hammered!!!"), and Cappy rang us too!!! They were all having a nice time, and were sweet enough to take time out of their own lives to wish us Happy New Year... It was a great evening, ending a pretty nice year... Here's to 2008, may it be a good one full of opportunities unmissed, hopes un-shattered, and dreams fulfilled!

Enjoy a few scenes from the last moments of our year... Goodbye 2007!

I love the "Who farted?!" shot. And the composition of Memphis Meg is awesome. Lovely pics as usual girl. Happy New Year!

Jay, Thanks!! Glad you like it. I thought I would go "more legible" in 08!! Glad you enjoyed pics!

Tink, thanks the "who farted" was what I got the first time I tried to get "See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil". Gotta take advantage of the happy accidents n'all. :)
