Welcome 2014

Well, for all of those who have not heard through the Facebook gravevine, I have to announce that we have added a new addition to the family.  Bill and I are now officially great-grandparents!  At 6:40 this morning, "The Girl" presented Deejo's family with a grandson, weighing in at 7 lbs, and 19 ins. long, with a full head of hair!  Way to go Grandpa Deejo (get used to it, kiddo).  Congratulations to all.  Babies are such a joy!

We had a good gathering last night for our Candlelight New Year's Eve party; lots of pics taken but none with my camera.  Sorry.  Maybe if I beg real hard, some of those will show up on Facebook pages or we will get an email.  It was low key, laid back, and totally enjoyable, ending with champagne, shrimp, cocktail weiners, fruit plate, cheese and crackers and a myriad of cookies and fudge - plus singing by the great maestro, Bill, at the stroke of midnight.

We woke to a new inch of snow on the ground, bright sunshine and some blue skies.  Welcome 2014 - and happy birthday to all our horses.  Jesse and Washoe really were born at this time of year; Ranger just gets to claim the 'regular horse birthday of Jan. 1st' since he was 8 before being 'captured' and nobody can even guess what time of year he was born.  I'm not sure where the time has gone, but I am having a difficult time accepting that none of our herd are youngsters now.

Happy New Year!

Juanita wrote the post, but she let me caption the picture of the baby blanket she made.  Do you suppose the root for the word "crotchet"  comes from the base word for crotchety? Bill

Bill is off to a real good start for the New Year!!!  BC


  1. Happy New Year and Congrats!

    BTW, I saw something that reminded me of Gun Divas' bareback dilemma. Someone else created the perfect product!


  2. If you like being a parent, then you really like being a grandparent, so imagine how great it is to be a GREAT-grandparent! -- Jim in Ohio

  3. Congratulations! Such exciting news. Happy New Year to you two.

  4. I cannot picture any of you as Grandparents, Great-Grandparents. We are too young! Oy oy. Congrats! That is something wonderful to bring the new year in. Sorry I have been so far behind. I was only keeping up with Facebook. And Facebook gets annoying some times. It is much more refreshing to poke a look see over here.


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
