Happy New Year!

It's January 1, and I'm feeling somewhat mellow. Well, sick actually, but as a description "mellow" will do.

Last night we didn't even manage to stay up until midnight. Instead we crashed at 11 and went right to sleep. I'm recovering from a cold and Anne's just coming down with it, so we're excused.

The one thing we did manage to do last night - that's as close to a NYE tradition as we have - is watch the Tim Burton film Mars Attacks. Anne says we started doing this many years ago when we were driving home after a holiday visit and wound up in Laramie on New Years Eve. We found Mars Attacks was on TV at the hotel and watched it. For some reason it's been what we do ever since.

Regardless of what your NYE traditions are, I wish you all the best in 2009. Thanks for reading and commenting here.

Oh, and as of yesterday I'm on Facebook too. You can find me there if you're a Facebook user. I can't promise my updates there will occur more often than they do here here, but we'll see.

  1. Give us a link to your FB profile or put in a picture we recognize. There are way too many faceless Jeff Powells on FB to find you easily.

  2. I have a picture out there of me standing in front of the pump panel of a fire engine. But your request for a link is a fine idea. Should have done that in the first place. Try this link. I think I have it right.
