Happy New Year

Debra and I usually go to dinner and then spend a quiet evening at home on New Year's Eve.  We go to bed early and then wake up at midnight when people in the neighborhood start shooting off fireworks.  Last night we did something completely out of character:  following a good sushi dinner we went to a country and western nightclub with some friends for an evening of dancing.  I was the designated driver, so I limited myself to a single glass of champagne at midnight.  We had a great time dancing and talking with friends, and by the time we left at 2:00 there was almost nobody on the road.  I had originally planned to do a long bike ride today, but put it off because we didn't get to bed until 3:00.  I'm not as young as I used to be and I need my sleep.
