The author of this New Year’s Day reflection looks to be a very lonely and dramatic 18-year old. I’ve got a feeling he’d make a really good boyfriend if she’d ever give him a chance. New Year’s get better once you’re old enough to drink.

My grandfather found this and thought it so cute that he brought it in to show us all. He never specified where he found it. I especially love the ‘Winner” sticker. I hope they all kept to their many resolutions!

Hamden, known for its Christmas light display on 34th street, has a lesser known New Year’s celebration on the same street. People throng 34th waiting for “our” version of the Times Square ball drop and the eventful Baby New Year appearance. Baby New Year happens to be a tubby middle aged guy wearing nothing but a diaper, bonnet and a fu manchu. He descends his stairs, scampers about and high fives the gathered merrymakers. Good times…you should swing by some year. Anyhow, my wife alertly retrieved this from the corner of Chestnut and 34th. We enjoyed passing it around amongst friends at the Hon Bar… discussing our hopes for the new year and wishing the person luck in achieving their goals…hope they located the educational DVD mentioned. I need one to help me find my “bliss.”
