Wow 2008 who would have thought it?
Hubba and I went over to the club, had a couple bumps and were back home by 8:00.
We use to go down to our home town and spend the New Years with old friends
Lot's of good memories.
Now most of them are either gone for the winter, or just prefer not to go out
on New Years anymore.
So the last several years we have been taking turns with some couples and just playing cards.
It was my turn to entertain this year , but one couple was enjoying time with their family while
their son is home for a few weeks
He has about 4 months to go, that is if the Shrub doesn't extend his time there.
He has told his wife and parents, he will not be staying in the Guards.
This has been very difficult for his wife and kids, emotionally and financially
It was interesting watching people at the club.
One guy was playing pull tabs with a vengeance
I estimated he spent about 400.00 to 500.00 dollars before he quit.
He may have hit some small winners, but I think he left with empty pockets.
I guess I'll never understand how people think they can win at those games.
When the Karaoke started, we decided it was time to leave.
I just wasn't in the mood to listen to bad country music.
The usual suspects were standing in line waiting to croak.
I hope this New Year brings a new Regime,
and will bring our kids home and try to repair our image in this world.
