Midnight last night …Thought we were being STRAFFED!

  Just a short blog to say Happy New Year to all…We had a great time here the past few days.

  We had a beautiful day yesterday…The temp was 75 degrees and sunny.  We took our walk in shirt sleeves..WAHOOEY!!

Yup!! We’re Texas all right!!  Antlers, a wreath and a brush guard are all the essentials for a Texan’s truck to be decorated for the Holidays!..I just LOVE  those brush guards..I think they make a truck look tough, rough and ready…!!

Yesterday afternoon MacGyver and I rode into the big town of Sattler and stopped at the VFW, which was packed with locals.  This place is very friendly to us Winter Texans,…  a glass of wine and a draft beer will cost you $3.25…and that’s with a frosted mug!  We each had 2 drinks, picked up a pizza at Fox’s Den Pizza Place, and headed for the “Hills”.  (We left the Hiker at 2:00PM and were back at 4PM..and that includes a 15minute drive each way.Flirt male)

McGyver and I are just like Superman without the phone booth…We can change from dress up clothes into campfire attire in a matter of seconds…The minute we hit the Hiker door, the good dress- up shirts and jeans came off and the casual evening attire was donned by both of us for a relaxing New Year’s Eve by the campfire.  I plugged our I-Tunes into the surround sound, turned it up (playing ONLY country music), and we were in our chairs by the fire at 5PM…We sat outside until 8PM, watched the sun dive into the surrounding lake and hills, and the fireworks began at dusk, about 7PM.  We had a few munchies made up..

I KNOW….WOULD YA JUST LOOK AT THE FANCY SERVING CONTAINERS I DUG OUT JUST FOR THIS OCCASION…I ESPECIALLY LOVE THE ZIP LOC SHRIMP BAG WITH THE LOVELY BLUE ZIPS…AND OF COURSE, MY FAVORITE MICKEY MOUSE MUG!!

We went to bed at 9:30PM, watched a little TV, and were snoring by 10PM..until exactly midnight..We were both awakened by what sounded like bombs going off all around us…I peeked out my window (both our windows were open, but mine faces the lake), and the sky was alive with fireworks.  I mean HUGEGIMONGOUS displays everywhere on the lake!!  This went on for about 1/2 hour…I think every home on the lake had a commercial size package of rockets and boomers, and they sure were having a great time welcoming in the New Year…Y’all sure know how to ring it in down here in Texas!!Party smile

This morning we were watching our neighbor across the street, packing up and getting ready to leave..He had his rig hooked on, but he still hadn’t pulled in one of his slides.  As we watched (nosy, aren’t we?) he UNhooked his truck and soon had his tool box out and was crawling around under his rig.. It didn’t take McGyver long to end up walking over to see if he could help..

McGyver…offering his expertise to the tires of the fiver ..(the guy was somewhere underneath there).  Pretty soon Den walked back in our door and said the apparently the neighbor had fixed the slide with a bolt and the slide was now working.  They were initially going to leave this morning for “The Valley”, but when the slide wouldn’t co-operate, they put leaving off until tomorrow…That’s when we are leaving too. In fact, there are quite a few leaving here tomorrow…hmmm..could be a long line at the dump station.  We might have to get up extra early so we can be “front row Joe” at the dumper!!Laughing out loud

  6. No fireworks here in Quartzsite which is fine with me. The girls really don't like them. We celebrated with the east coast and then went to bed. I think my evil twin might have won.

  7. Have another wonderful year. We'll be expecting lots of great sunshine photos again this year. Glad you're still "free range" there in Texas.

  8. The Texans were making up for not being able to have fireworks for the 4th of July because of the burn ban. I was at Toledo Bend Lake. The front came through and it was overcast. The fireworks sounded like thunder and we could only see the ones that were close.

  12. A totally quiet and peaceful New Year's Eve for us guys. Just the way we like it. I think it's been over 20 years since I ran outside making a great big blustering noise of myself on New Years.
