Another Year

The clock in New York City says 9 minutes to go and it will be 2013 so we made it another year. I'm home where it's nice and warm watching TV. Outside it's 3 below zero and getting colder before morning. There are over a million people in the streets in NYC waiting for the ball to drop. It would be fun to be there but I think about how  long it would take to get through the crowd and back to your hotel room. The ball drops at midnight and I just imagine it would take until 5:00 at least to get out of there. The clock says 2 minutes left so I'm going to get ready to jump up and down and yell HAPPY NEW YEAR and then go to bed. That won't take long because there isn't any crowd here. I pray everyone be blessed in the year 2013 and be thankful for what you have.

We had a big blizzard last week.  I moved snow for my friend, Todd and there was quite a bit.  He has a big place that needs many driveways cleared so it can take a couple hours.  We got snow overnight last night.  It isn't much but enough that it has to be moved.  So that is where I will be for the next hour and a half probably.  I can get my driveway cleared too and that sure helps.

Now THAT'S a Birthday Cake

My sister has all kinds of little great grandchildren.  It seems like a whole lot of them are having birthdays this time of the year.  Take a look at this birthday cake - a volcano.  His one grandpa brought along one he could make erupt with lava running down the sides.  My sister says it was really neat.  The one in the picture is chocolate and it was really good with homemade ice cream the little guy's dad made the night before.
He's 3 years old.  Can you see the 3 on top.  It lit up like a sparkler.
