Make Way for the New Year
Check out this pile of explosives!! We picked them up from just across the state line night before last.
We've all been speculating about this one. Will he spit fire? Will his eyes pop out or glow? My bet is that he gets a fiery crown. (The fuse is on his head, after all).
I hope Fusco enjoys these and doesn't mind. One of them alone is supposed to have 25 blasts!
Meanwhile, we are enjoying the sun and dancing around the living room to these hot tunes . . .
Tomorrow we'll eat New Year's good luck foods--collard greens, ham, and black eyed peas (Southern tradition) and lox and eggs and onions (Jewish tradition). These foods do not make appetizing pictures. In fact, they took me awhile to even acquire a taste for. To be perfectly honest, I am not sure I can really eat more than a smidge of lox, eggs, and onions.
Happy New Year!
