Another year gone by.
I really don't romanticize New Years too much.
Most often, the festivities pass me by becauseI'm usually onstage doing a show or (most likely) because I'd rather be at home celebrating by watching movies, eating pizza and hanging out with friends.
This year will be no different. I'll be here in Texas with Jeannie and her parents at their home. Quietly ringing in the new year with a gentle indifference.
Another reason a new year doesn't seem like too big of a deal is because each year always seems pretty good to me. They always seem good and fine and great.
I haven't had a bad year in years. (I hope I didn't just jinx myself)
The past few days we have piddled around Southern Texas, taking it easy.
We've played lots of tennis (I bought Jeannie and I super nice new rackets for Christmas.)
We also went to the movies several times. We went to the Palladium, which is an insanely large Movie Theater complex. They have Gelato there...
...and Dr. Pepper icees's.
Yesterday we went to Mathis to visit Jeannie's grandparents. For lunch we picked up food at a BBQ place named Smolik's.
In other parts of the country they decorate their restaurants intentionally to look like this.
Here, it's just been like this for years. You know, because it's Texas and this is what Texas really looks like.
