O'Malley looks like quite the King in your new avatar, Auntie, so I thought he might like to wear my crown for a while.

Fireworks are underway. The Town Torch Party is wrapping up. Why am I here instead of down there taking photos with my camera? I dunno. Just didn't happen. Now, I'm regretting it a bit.

cheesy That's okay, tomorrow I should be able to catch the fireworks, if it's not too windy, they launch the New Year's Eve one pretty much in my backyard.

Awww, thanks, Minta.
It has been enormously gratifying and fun.
And I look for the same, only better, for 2010!

Remember folks, this thread will lock down forever for new posts at midnight, Eastern Standard Time, but will always be available for reading (each one of which will boost the view count)!

Cold again, where we stand just below 36.
The weather channel and our newspaper disagree on the weekend lows.
The former says low 20's while the latter claims upper teens.
Regardless, it will feel COLD around here for a while!

Have a Thrilling Thursday and an Exciting Eve of the New Year, Guys!
(Be careful on the roads.)


It's been a great run this year!! My sincere thanks to everyone who visited and posted.
See you next year, for Christmas Countdown 2010!

I can't believe it's already time to shut down this thread. I've loved this whole year, spent counting the year down with my friends.

Crown, this has been a great thread and I appreciate your dedication to it!

I'll try to post again before midnight.

Looking forward to the 2010 Countdown Thread!

Thanks for a wonderful year, my friends!cheesy

Wow is it really the last day of the year. I have had a great time counting down on this thread all year long and look forward to next years countdown thread. Thanks Crown for all of your hard work.

Today I will be getting ready for my holiday party tonight. My family will be coming over and the neighors will be stopping by. I doubt anyone will actually stay until midnight. Usually they all leave by 10pm. I need to run to the store to get a few last minute items and I will be checking out the christmas decorations they have left while I am there. I will try to get back on later today but if I don't I hope everyone has a SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Locked forever :( sniff sniff. BUT a new one will be created. So thats good. I cant believe how fast Christmas was again this year. But they always zoom by. Takes FOREVER to get to the holiday season but once we get there it just flys by. If I dont post later I hope everyone has a SAFE and happy New Years!

There was an old lady in my previous church who lived to be 104. (She died two years ago.) She was SO feisty and used to teach kindergarten! Many times she would say, "Don't bring me flowers when I am dead; give them to me while I can enjoy them." I finally asked her what she meant. She said, "If I have helped in any way, thank me while I can enjoy your thanks; if you thank me when I am dead, I will not know." So, thanks to all who have made this 2009 Countdown a memorable event. There are your flowers while you are alive!!!

My kids are all working tonight so I will be all by myself. but don't fret, I am not really a party person and have lots to do + a box of louisiana chicken wings, so I will be quite content!!

Yeah, I went to Lowes last night hoping to find some good deals on replacement lights, garland and other items to store away until next November. Everything was gone, either sold out or put back into storage. Nothing but empty shelves. Even the extension cords, outdoor timers & other likekind stuff was empty and not replaced. Kind of a depressing trip considering I'm still in the holiday mode.
