It’s midnight somewhere

We’re out watching the pine cone drop (note that’s only going to be valid until next month/year/tomorrow). We’re watching the 10pm drop as we all have our kids with us. Then it’s on back home to watch some TV, eat some dip and chips and see if the kids (or us) can actually make it to midnight local time. 🙂
Happy New Year all! And stop reading my blog when you should be drinking champagne – or bubbling wine if you don’t care for those French snobs 😉


  1. Cheers, and Happy New Year to you. We made it to midnight and watched the fireworks show at Navy Pier again this year. It’s quite fun to watch it from our nearest beach. Free parking (shhh, don’t tell anyone in the city) and you can see the fireworks from both locations. The ones from Navy Pier show up great, and the ones from further south peak through the cityscape and you can just barely see them from our beach. It’s pretty cool, although not exactly the warmest of celebrations, I’m sure.

  2. We ran into all kinds of people who we know, Flagstaff being the small town that it is. Interestingly a Sheriff’s Office detective who I know is now dating a friend of my brother’s family. Then we ran into some friends of my daughter’s from school and eventually my brother’s in-laws. After the 10PM drop – the two youngest kids with us sat staring at the huge pine cone, mesmerized – we came back to the apartment for snack type foods and beer (Hefeweizen, served with a slice of orange) and watched the replay of the midnight ball drop with Dick Clark.
