|This reminds me of a New Year's Eve dinner many years ago in our first house in Aylmer - and yes we did wear tuxedos. A left click will take you to all the words of Robbie Burn's immortal lyrics.|
When I grew up New Year's Eve was a time when neighbours dropped in for a drink - my father didn't drink but he worked for a distillery so there was always something in the house - we had a family dinner and then we listened to the radio and at midnight as Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians played Auld Lang Syne we exchanged kisses and hugs and then went to bed. Tonight will be much the same. No great carry on - maybe a bit of reflection and maybe even some Guy Lombardo.
Wishing all those near and dear to me the happiest and healthiest of 2012.
