New Year's is by far not my favorite holiday. I can count on one hand the number of times that I have gone out on this date in all my life.
The fireworks have been going off since it got dark...around six this evening. It is absolutely horrible! Tammie has been missing in action since this afternoon, Oscar is hiding behind the washing machine and I have no idea where Pedrito is at.
I can only imagine how bad it is on my block in Houston. Unfortunately, both in Del Rio and Houston I live in the county where fireworks are legal.
Mom and I went to HEB, there were so many cars I decided to try Walmart...too many people there too. Since they will be opened tomorrow, I will come back then when everyone will be asleep and/or suffering from a hangover.
To my European readers, I am sorry I have dropped the ball on posting gasoline prices. In the Del Rio area, 2016 ends with the following gas price...
I have my garden hoses ready in case I need them this evening. Hope everyone has a great New Year's eve and a very Happy New Year's.
It is holiday's like this that make me long for the day that I can call Terlingua home. I so need the peace and tranquility that only my favorite desert can give me.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
