New Year’s Eve 2011

We had a wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration yesterday here at Mittry Lake in Yuma!!! 

We shared our dinner with The Mossman’s with them and Jim eating steak and baked potato and I had a Morningstar BBQ Riblet and quinoa…I’m trying to start my new year with a more veggie emphasis.

We are joining other Boomers (Escapee RV Club sub-group) here to celebrate together with a “Z Circle”.  This sets up four rigs as “hosts” and 24 participants. We were a host rig.  With a special formula (LOL) they match up three couples to come and get-to-know-each-other for 45 minutes. Then an air horn sounded and every one moved to different rigs for another 45 minute get together. You had 15 minutes in between to return to your own rig to refresh your drink, etc.  Everybody brought an appetizer or dessert to the first rig and left it there so it could be shared with subsequent guests. It worked out fine and we did, indeed, get to know each other better. Plus it was good to have nibbles to eat with the drinking.

At 11:15 p.m. we all gathered for a bonfire that Ken Pace built.  Sue Pace handed out illuminating bracelets and necklaces
so we all walked around glowing…some in more ways than one LOL.

Folks mingled around and enjoyed the mild evening weather…it wasn’t really cold being in the desert.

Linda Mossman and Jan Moore led us all in singing 60’s songs~we all sang with gusto. “Henry the Eighth I am” brought the most laughs

We had the count down and there were kisses and handshakes all around.  By 12:15 a.m. we had all sauntered back to our rigs and called it a night.

Jim and I slept in till 6:30 this morning, had a nice breakfast and we are now ready to face the day….maybe I’ll make another pot of coffee first though LOL.

Hope you have a wonderful new year with lots of love to share with someone, dancing in the moonlight and giggle till you pee.

Remember, you are love  … by me and all who know you!
