The Old Gray Stallion Just Ain’t What He Used to Be…



Well our Chinese New Year celebrations I over, I am shoveling out the kitchen – seems every time I think I am close to done I find another empty wine bottle. Anyway, it was a lot of fun; we had a good turn out lots of food, fun, and drink. I think it was the drink part that got me – Ol’ Phos used to drink two or three liters of wine no problem. Ok, I wouldn’t get behind the wheel, but I was ok and felt fine the next day. I probably had one liter of wine, between bottles of Pinot and Merlot and am zombified today.

Good luck and prosperity have already shined down upon Yukon, who scored a cheese stick one of the kids left on the table as well as a bowl of fortune cookies that were left unattended in the dog zone, which explains all the paper fortunes lying in the backyard. He is off to a good start, but the rest of us might have a rough time in “The Year of the Pig”. According to what I have read, being born in a Pig year is very fortuitous, living to tell the tale may be another story. In other words, batten the hatches folks.

Well in the words of the bard, I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in, so out here for now, and happy New Year to all!!!

DAK: I like a mimosa once in awhile - orange juice and champagne. Mostly I go for a nice dry red, though.

Did you light some firecrackers in the foyer?

DM: That isn’t dust it is probably fur. Vacuum as we might the fur prevails. As a Pig, you should have a very lucky life – hey look, you got a new camera, how lucky is that!!

Chickie: The boys watch over me. I have a couple in the kitchen as well – they are back up for the Kitchen God. As I have said before I like to hedge my bets.

Kirsten: Thanks!! So far so good. I was lucky enough to have today off – President’s Day, don’t you know.

Cameraena: Mrs. Phos compiled information about Chinese New Year and the Year of the Pig. We update it every year so if anyone is interested they can read up on what the celebrating is all about. I think everyone had fun and I didn’t run out of food – always a big worry…

Phoenix: I wanted to, but Mrs. Phos won’t let me have things that explode or involve fire. That is probably for the best.

Oooooooops! Wrong post.

Jin:That is his stalking prey face so he would probably be after some of your delicious cookies at this point

LL: Thanks!

Looks like you had a great day! Red wine hates me. If I drink any more than a couple of glasses the hangover that ensues is horrendous.

Yukon was just acting like a pig. You can't be mad at him for getting into the spirit of the celebration.

Mmmm, vino, I like vino. I like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and am quite partial to Champagne... Oooh, those bubbles! LoL

Looks like those folks were guarding their plates well, and who can blame them: You made all those goodies yourself, didn't you? OMG! You make Dim Sum, don't you???? That's it! I'm moving in! The Tiny House is about to get crowded: Move over tiny Buddhas, we need room for my BEADS!!! LoL!!!

kung hei fat choy from this Rat! (I love being a Rat!) ;)

Oh, BTW: How cute are YOU, decorating with little pigs. Oh, and handouts? Are those HANDOUTS!?! OH, can I please move in? Please???? I'll let you play with my beads... How's that?
