Good Morning, Guys, Gals and Unknowns!

Ah! Sadness mixed with excitement and anticipation.

Yes, Sparkle, this thread will lock at the end of the day today, officially marking the end of Day 50 of our glorious 2008 Christmas Season and this count thread.
.....And just as soon as I can launch it tomorrow, Countdown 2009 will begin!!

So much thanks to all who contributed to our (not so) little thread!
Wow! I thought we might not reach 5,000 posts and here we are at nearly 5,100!
(Of course, that will make breaking the record again next year just that much harder, but that much more fun to try!)

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Holiday, and everyone.
Enjoy the view from the peak of the week - our last such view in 2008!
And have a simply Fantastic New Year!! See you then!

With much love, respect and kind feelings......

- Crown

I too want to say thank you to all of my friends here! It has been a wonderful year, all things considered! And, while I am somewhat concerned over the coming year's financial atmosphere, right now I will celebrate all that was, and all that shall be.

Let's toast to a Happy, Healthy, prosperous New Year with a big hug added for good measure!

Jay

Indeed they would and have. Remember, when Carl was travelling he had a stop-over here and pushed his way in and O'Malley respected that. At first there was some hissing and spitting going on, but they worked it out.

And I agree that those pictures look a little bleak, not at all like the pictures in my albums.

HolidayHoney, O'Malley gets along with people better than animals, but you never know.

I watched the fireworks from Australia. Always a highlight of my Christmas Eve morning. They didn't get enough air time in my opinion.

Tonight, if the winds aren't too strong, they'll have fireworks here. They have them early so families can come out together and enjoy special events, finishing off with fireworks at 10:00 p.m. that way the children don't have to stay up too late passed their bedtime and if the adults wanted to make plans to slip out and arrange for someone to look after their children they could do so without feeling like they didn't celebrate together.

Thanks for leading us through the Countdown in 2008, Crown! I'm sure we'll reach 5,500 posts by the end of next year's count.

I'll try and swing by the Chat Room tonight around midnight.

Happy New Year's Eve!

What a year it's been!! I have loved this thread so much, I'm sad to see it come to an end, but looking forward to a new, fresh thread for 2009! Hopefully 2009 will bring less tragedy (been lots of young, tragic deaths locally in 2008 & that's enough of that!) & good health for all!!!

Thanks for a great year &....

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE TO ALL!!!

Oh! That's right! I forgot.
(And Carl is not here to remind me since he is getting things ready over at the Shispering Pines for this evening.)

I think she was referring to something in more of a red and green tartan.

I'm going to pop over to the Shispering Pines for a little bubbly or eggnog or one of Carl's special blends - oh the temptations that await ...
