New Year



HAPPY NEW YEAR! I thought I'd use this new picture of the newest addition to our family. This is his first new year, of course, so what better person to represent me? (Besides, he's a lot better-looking
 than I am.)

  3. No he isn't better looking than you. Maybe to Jimmy Saville and those of his ilk he is. He's a baby they all look the same.
    My wife drilled into me that I mustn't let them out of my sight. She was concerned lest I bring the wrong one back.
    Have a great year and all the best to the wee mite whoever he really belongs to.

  6. Mmm... He might be slightly better looking but I bet you are better at controlling your bowel movements! It's all swings and roundabouts!

    1. YP, please leave bowel movements out of this. It (they?) lower(s) the tone of the blog...

  7. Not fair to compare, Frances. You have high cheekbones and he has none. He is adorable, however.
    Wishing you the very best in the new year.

    2. It was great!! Good food, pleasant company, good enough music, an overwhelmingly spectacular fireworks display, and dancing until the band packed up and left :-)
