Wind and weather were the keywords yesterday as a heavy wind blew in 2019 last night at midnight. I came home early from a party to bring in the new year at home. My son and his cute dog Stout were here and we poured sparkling grape drink into tall glasses and watched the bubbles rise and pop as the ball rose up in Times Square. At least that's what I intended! Alas I was popping the top off the drink as the ball went up and I missed it! Stout! But 2018 was such a dramatic year I am hoping that 2019 will go on and go out like a lamb. Looks good, with a wedding and three graduations in the future! So Happy New Year! Happy 2019!
