    Fell asleep around 8pm, woke up at 9pm due to explosions... had to think about it a moment, who shoots off fireworks at 9pm on NYE?
    Went back to bed.

    Safe travels to you.


    Made it to midnight, toasted with Prosecco and woke up next to a beautiful new year.
    Best wishes to you all !!

    Pip Pip.

    Crossed the line on my back deck, reclining in my Zero-gravity chair and looking at *M42 thru binoculars...whilst the neighborhood artillery greeted the new year.

    *M42 is the Orion Nebula.

    Being still in Grinch mood, I'd forgotten about it.

    The blitz starting at 7pm told me summat woz up. Looked at the calendar, wadda ya know, it's New Years Eve. Hang on a minute, aren't the celebrations supposed to be as we pass from one year to the next? By 9pm the windows were rattling and I could feel some of the explosions indoors, they must have been deafening outside. I heard slurred singing from next door before I dozed off in my armchair around 11, and woke up in time to go to bed this year. I'm told the munitions testing program fizzled out around 00:30, so five and a half hours of whoosh bang ooh nasties for an event that I don't see the point of celebrating, unless you're a retailer of alcohol or fireworks.

    Never mind, Easter eggs are already on sale...

    Yep. All good here. :thumb:

    Unfortunately I noticed a price increase on Fender Player Series and Squier CV guitars when I woke up this morning. Welcome to 2020!! :(

    I really want a Squier CV 50's 2-tone Stratocaster but they have not been in stock for at least a few weeks so I asked to be notified when they arrive and they are still not in stock and the price has gone up by $50. :thumbd: Not a great start to the new year.

    Just got up. Mrs B and I had a nice dinner early last night at the Majestic steakhouse and Jazz club then brought in the new year at home with a bottle of prosecco while watching some Lost in Space season 2.

    I made it! Pretty decent gig. I guess about 250 to 300 people. Band sounded good. 3rd year in a row having the NYE gig at this venue. Nice cause it’s only 10 minutes from my house. I got a $100 tip from some guy for Purple Rain so I put some extra sauce on it for him. Made it home safe after a stop at Whataburger! 0 alcohol consumed... Happy 2020 Everybody!!!

    I'm alive, so it's a great start to a new year! Went to a party last night, stayed a couple of hours till about 11. Drove home - sober I might add, played on the computer for a bit. Noticed it was midnight. Said Happy New Year to Ms. Ducerro and hit the sack.
