Our New Year's Eve celebration plans are the "usual" dinner and movie with family nearby. This year it's The Aviator followed by a seafood dinner at Rockfish--all to be completed by 7 p.m. We're not as young as we used to be, and some among us have promised to babysit grandkids while their children go out. We'll probably come home afterward for some TV and decaf while we try to ignore the barrage of firecrackers outside in the street. (Yes, they're still legal in our neighborhood.)
Might be a fun time to recap the most memorable New Year's Eve movies we've seen in the past 30-odd years:
Papillon--Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. If you like watching people eat rats and insects after dining at a Japanese steakhouse, go for it!
Busgy Malone--one of the worst we've ever seen.
Earthquake--not the best idea when your sister-in-law is eight and a half months pregnant!
Miss Congeniality--Sandra Bullock was the big draw for the husbands in our entourage; a hilarious movie!
That's all I can come up with at the moment. I'll add to this later if I think of any more.
May God bless all our family and friends, near and far, in the coming year. For He knows the plans He has for us--to prosper us and not to harm us, to give us hope and a future!
