A Happy New Year!!!

Tonight, on New Year's Eve, we held a New Year Party at our home. It was a very informal affair including family and friends. Two very special close friends, newly engaged, were first to arrive.Our daughter, Fran and granddaughter Emma followed, with our son, Sheldon, appearing a little later.
It was an extremely convivial get-together;; the wine was flowing and the buffet was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
Shortly before
midnight, our glasses were charged and on the first stroke of the New Year, we toasted each other.
Our glasses were also raised to ‘Absent friends’ John Tyndall, whose portrait gazed down on us and to Iris, of course, whose photograph was in its usual place on my desk.
For quite a few of us there this evening, 2006 wasn’t the best year we ever had and we look forward to a better year in 2007.

Anyway, to all of you who read my blog, I would wish you a happy and prosperous New Year!
