My wife brought home a beautifully wrapped bottle of vintage bubbly fruit of the red grape, which we shared in our stemmed goblet.
Then we wished one another a Happy New Year.
We also would like you and yours a Happy New Year, and extend this to all the blog friends.
Of course, our vintage was only carbonated, not alcoholic. But still pretty good.

It's a little confusing. You see the new year 13? hours before me. It seems moving the clock back traveling west couldn't get you to the next day:)

Happy New Year

Uncle Cran, sounds like you had a Nehi grape soda to celebrate with.

My only celebratory drink this year was the electronic one depicted in this blog entry.

That's right, Hathor -- crossing the International Date Line could enable one to miss New Year's Day altogether!

That beautifully wrapped bottle of vintage 'oinos', was produced by Welch Grape Company.
It is put out every Christmas and New Year for teetotelers like us.
It looks like the other wine bottles, but is non-alcoholic, and is labeled as grape juice coctail.
We get our holiday spirit by other means.
did I ever confess my last taste of booze.....that I partook of at James' Lieutenant Colonel pin on ceremony?

Uncle Cran, you have not confessed your latest transgression, but all of us are all ears.

Methinks I should wait until nephew Bill finishes his interesting and educational family remembrances, plus more enlightening, though sometimes slightly above the heads and minds of your less savant relatives, blogs by our esteemed professor.
We need to give your other bloggers a rest.

Uncle Cran, judging from the quality of writing that my various relatives have sent to me via email, I think that my kinfolk must encounter very few difficulties reading this blog.

Referring to myself, of course.
My relatives have very high mental faculties.
They also know how to spell 'boughten,' which I seeming am incapable of doing.

Well, Uncle Cran, there's some legitimate dispute over the correct spelling for the incorrect past participle of "buy."
