Hi there! Hope 2010 is getting off to a great start for you. I can tell you that on our end, The Beagle is simply relieved that he isn't in a crockpot as on past New Year Days! Poor Pokey.
I wish I could say we brought the New Year in with some serious partying....but, sadly, we were in bed at 8! However, before you get the wrong idea, we aren't that boring...we'd just gotten back home from a flight across the Atlantic. For Christmas, Edgar and I went on a magical...though at times a little frightening...trip to Amsterdam. Amsterdam is wooooonnnnndddderful...beautiful...terrific...it's just that we left on Christmas Day, flying through Detroit and, unbeknownst to us at the time, got on the same plane as the failed terrorist attempt hours earlier. Scary stuff.
I think what was scarier, however, was flying back to the U.S. from Amsterdam. Thankfully, the security was VERY intense, but it was still a little surreal sitting at the gate, thinking who had been there and what he was planning days earlier. Phew. I'm so happy to be home.
