Both 73 and never much on partying although we did make it to midnight...not sure why with a DVR. Ate out before going to a party and gave the older (younger than us) waitress a 100% tip. You could tell it had been a long day but she was still cheerful about having to work.

We are truly blessed...Happy New Years to all.

It was a comfortable feeling reading through all of the posts on this thread. There's one common theme throughout: We're all older and wiser. We've gleaned a great deal of experience throughout our years. We partied hard back in the sixties and seventies, survived it, and can now reflect back and look at our grand kids. They have NO IDEA that grandma and grandpa rocked on. To them, we were born old, kind, and wise.

We've learned to slow it down - sometimes on purpose, sometimes not - we've buried some friends this past year, and we appreciate what that means. (Geez, I'm reading what I'm writing here, and I've become my father LOL).

So let's have a really good 2019. I'm appreciating every day as best I can. Not gonna wait 'til the last minute to start appreciating - I'm 63 and gonna get a head start on it.

Happy New Year.

I remember one year about 20 years ago I was working an overnight shift New Year’s Eve, running around checking on a few of the commercial properties, and at some point I completely forgot it was New Year’s eve. At midnight, the car behind me started flashing it’s like it’s nonstop and beeping his horn. At the next red traffic light, I got out of my truck and walked back to him asking what his problem was, and he replied “happy new year”. I felt like a giant jerk

I stayed up past midnight last night, just so the outdoor noises would subside before I went to bed.

Did you see on the news about the guy who shot himself in the stomach celebriting New Years. Alcohol and Firearms there's a winning combination. What a way to start the year.
