“Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one!” Okay, I’ll try and hope you do, too! Happy New Year one and all!
We broke tradition last night. We did not stay home; go to bed; try to watch the ball drop in Times Square on TV and fall asleep before the ball drops. Instead we actually went to a New Year’s Eve party here at Tropical Palms.
Lulu wasn’t going to be left behind! She loves a party and especially, dressing up. Of course, she’s limited as to what she can put on. Obviously, you know the reason why. She found her precious tiara and plopped that on her head and she was ready to party. Gorgeous! Lulu, the Queen.
The party hall was set up so sparkly and pretty. We enjoyed the music by the DJ and his assistant. He even played one of my most favorite songs: Delta Dawn. That made me reflect back to one festive night in Wellsville. We had gone out with DeAnne and Less McKay. We ended up at the American Legion with a couple pops under our belts. Karaoke was going on. Thinking I
could sing (which I absolutely can’t.....I make a sound like the mating call of a walrus) I convinced DeAnne we could get up and sing “Delta Dawn” together. Ha, Ha, Ha. I think we thought we were good. Not taking any votes from the listeners, though. Such a fun night! We miss those times since they moved away to N.C.
Going back to the party. I do tend to get sidetracked on occasion, don’t I? The whole group was up dancing. Except for Lulu.....she’s limited in being able to get her toes tapping (she has none). She could get on the dance floor and roll her head around....I’m too afraid someone might stomp on her though. We don’t want a “Flathead Lulu”. She’s content to wiggle her ears to the beat....🎼🎼You Make Me Want To SHOUT🎼🎼 She was happy to try on all the fancy New Year’s hats....that was right up her line. She’s like a remake of Hedda Hopper (probably most of you don’t know who she was but she was famous for wearing big, lavish hats).
Everyone had a great time. The finger foods were tasty. We even had scrumptious cupcakes! These were brought by Pam
in celebration of her husband, Tim’s, birthday. Happy, Happy Birthday, Tim and thank you, Pam. There was soda pop and water available. Those who chose to imbibe (us), brought our own liquor. Cheers everyone! Everything was arranged and decorated by the dedicated TP employe, Xavier. What a wonderful job he did. He stayed with us all night waiting on all of our needs and requests. He was so polite, friendly and gracious. Thank you very much, Xavier! Happy New Year!
There were 8 tables of revealers. I missed one table when I was doing my photo op’s. Sorry about that “missing table”. Maybe “the sauce” had already caught up with me. This was not a large group compared some of the parties put on by the park. Then, the entire room is packed with tables and people from end to end. This time we were all concentrated mostly at just one end. But we all celebrated hardily and probably matched the decibel level of the full group. The dance floor was FULL.....minus Lulu. Don’t worry.....”Candy” didn’t come to this party. You remember her, don’t you? The sleezebag? The trollop? Yes....I knew you wouldn’t forget her. I made sure she
didn’t get a ticket. She is going to have to change her impulsive and inappropriate behavior before she goes out in public again. The tart! Even Lulu cringes when she see her! That’s very bad!
There were TV’s on in the room so we could watch the crystal ball actually drop in Times Square at midnight. Hoop-Tee-Doo! Woo-Hoo! Hooray! Kisses on the way! Sidetrack: many, many years ago...it might have even been when Cory and I were just dating....so we are taking about almost 20,000 days, we went with a couple to the Blue Angel Bar/Grill in Hornell, NY for New Years Eve. Midnight came and Cory and I started to kiss. We kissed for 14 minutes straight. Why?...you ask. Cory’s lucky number is 14. That’s why. Our friends were bored with our mushy activity but stayed around. Thank heavens, his lucky number wasn’t 74. My lips were swollen after 14 minutes.....can you picture them after 74? They would look like these monster fish lips that the movie stars get. Ugh!
We decided at 12:45 AM, it was time to stagger back to our RV. That’s a plus....can’t get picked up for a DWI. Not sure about it
if we had taken our golf cart, though. Actually, we were just fine. I think we danced ourselves sober. Lulu was still hyped up. Of course, you could never tell if she were inebriated. She can’t stagger.....no legs! She can just get mouthy. And she does. Put a sock in it, Lulu!
As 2019 begins, we wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. We are so glad we can all be together and share our adventures and memories with one another. Life is Good!
