As the Pretenders song goes."Another Saturday night .I go with out a fight." I had a mighty uneventful New Years Eve 2013. Though I did manage to drag myself to visit Bill W around 7:30 pm to 9 :30 pm . And I did manage to avoid the seasonal drunk drivers of the night. That is also known as amateur hour to our crowd. Surfing was the game for me this year. On the web that is . Fooled yah! I rose at the chilly 8am hr on New years day morning with a clear head again. CNN informed me that a melee in Old town Sac had been interrupted . By a bar fight and some shooting. Which caused the cancellation of the Midnight fire works. So while I was kicking my self for being a party poop er.
I suddenly started hearing very load bangs . Not a train.Not a oil refinery . But to my surprise and eventual Sherlock Holmes wit. I saw and heard tons of rapports and clouds of smoke . Oh joy the missed fireworks were being set off. Only myself a young woman and then an elder woman were seeing taking any interest in all the commotion. So hears to a pretty good new years so far.
