my sister holds a 4hr early newyears party for the kids wiht a countdown at 8pm and noisemakers etc. they all enjoy it and this year I got to hold the piniatta(spelling?)
everybody was hard up for cash this year so it was a big clearplastic bag with a couple small holes poked in by me with a pen. my daughter had the first swing at it and it exploded all over the floor. all the kids got wired on candy and adults just complained and drank.
everybody was in bed by 11pm, I fell asleep with my 4yr old and woke up at 1am wide awake. missed the real countdown.
sure quiet new years eve compared to launching a buddy's tempo through the checkerboard and into a field at 90km/h and having to come back and get it late in the afternoon next day with the JD4240 . I think that was in 1998.
funny how wife and kids make us a wee bit more responsible eh?
don't drink and drive
