HAPPY NEW YEAR! or "oh boo" moment 2006.9
the above is a las vegas kind of fireworks show - this is where my parents, two of my sisters and their families reside. we won't be with them for the grand event, but we'll be together with our own fireworks!
i'd like to take this opportunity to say "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY" to nancpop - thank you for pursuing me relentlessly for a year or so before i let you catch me!
funny thing - today when i called him on his cell phone, i could all of a sudden hear his and others' voices in the background while i was saying, "hello - hello - hello - anybody there? can you hear me now? ahem! answer the dayamed phone - stop talking about me behind my back! yoo-hoo? i can hear you, but you cannot hear me!"
their side of the conversation went something like this:
nancpop: "soooooooo, you found someone to cuddle with and now what?"
the other guy (i'll call him nathan because that's his name): "two weeks in a row - and i just don't understand why they're not calling me back!"
nancpop: "well, you know i've been cuddling with ___________ (meaning nanc) for about eighteen years now..."
the other guy (nathan): "yeah, but.....undiscernible..."
nancpop: "...or it could be thirty five...undiscernible..."
dear Lord - that would have made him seven at the time...oh boo!
sidenote: if i'm not back by monday evening, please send the st. bernards with plenty of medicine - as we'll be snowed in! and that would be us working on "oh boo" moment 2007...
