New Years Celebrations... One More Year!

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other!

Remember: "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves." - Bill Vaughn

Another Year Written In History

No great way to start the New Year.  Paul had bronchitis which seems to be a never ending battle these days! We had to cancel our traditional visit to the Mission Inn but the Duda's went to Disneyland... That was good! We could NOT miss the Santa Ana Elks so we went for a couple of hours.
