Yes kids, another year over and a new one has just begun. We brought in the New Year, as usual, on Axe Lake. I made my deviled eggs for the pot luck dinner that was being served at approximately 7pm. We headed over at 6:15 to get all set up. I brought some Margaritas to drink (even tho it was a Tuesday, I made an exception to my drinking rule). The weather called for a very cold evening and it hit the -25 mark as called for (but we woke up this morning to -30!!) We bundled up. I had on a t-shirt, turtleneck sweater and a sweater then my snowmobile pants. Thick sox and my big boots. Then my fur hat, alpaca mittens in my bigger mitts and finally my work down coat. I could hardly move!! I felt like the Pilsbury dough girl. As long as you were by the fire you were fine. But we ate in Joy and Arnold's garage. And what a feast - as you can see by the roaster full of ribs, and sausage. There was chili, my eggs, meat pies, buns, dips, cheese and fruit trays and meatballs. We were a small group last nite - no kids or teenagers. Darlene made the decorations - you would be surprised what can be done with duct tape :o) The final picture is of Daisy, Ron and Darlene's little dog - a cross between a bichon frise and a sheltie - what a great combination.
