Fred, your rock formations look so much like the photo that Marsha posted that we can see that you've come back to earth.  Nice colors.  The inhabitants of the rocks could decorate all those conifesr for Christmas - maybe next year.

Marsha, we are always alone on Christmas Eve so we went to a movie.  Thanks for recommending those two movies.  We are planning to see them both.  Thursday is our movie night so we'll probably see one of them tomorrow.

Fred, now those are some rugged looking mountains.  We're going to have to name that old hillbilly.  How about Moonshine Joe?  The cabin is almost as rugged looking as the mountain.  At least Mountain Joe managed to get the outhouse on land and not hanging over the cliff.  Love the TV antenna.  Fun paint, Fred.

Marsha, we did go to the movies tonight and saw The Life of Pi.  It was very good and the photography was terrific.  We'll see one of the ones you mentioned on New Year's Day which happens to be my birthday (39th) and the other one next Thursday.

Fred, I haven't see the ole moonshine maker in a while now,  I see he is still guarding the still.  I see a path to the front door but I don't see a path to the OH...  Is he holdin a gun?  I don't see how anyone can climb that granite mountain, but knowin you there will be a way.... I love the colors in the cabin.  It looks like he gittin' about as good tv reception as I am right now...

Regarding the bears and the 1%....    Have we seen the 1%ers yet?  Are they able to keep or maintain their wares when they were banished..??? or are they still untouchable and safe upon their mountain top?

SAM:   I loved the Pi movie as well.   we saw it in 3D and now I'm a 3D addict... The next one we are going to see is Guilt Trip with Barbara Streisand

Everybody, I have sent a private Conversation to Holly several times regarding getting a schedule for 2013 posted with no response. As far as I know, Geri will be posting a new Challenge Tuesday. If we don't hear from Holly, we'll have to start a new sign-up list. This time, how about doing it like last year and let everybody post their preferences in the thread. The first who asks for a given month, gets it.

We also need to start a new Chatter thread for 2013. I don't mind starting both of those threads but am trying to give Holly as much time as possible. I'm concerned about her and would be relieved to hear from her.

I have a question....  If we don't hear from Holly, who is going to post the new CHATTER THREAD FOR 2013?    If everyone is busy I can do it .   Tomorrow is the day I guess...  or do you wait until the actual Jan 1?  either way I am home and my internet is back up now.   I don't plan on going anywhere tomorrow evening...  we can see all the fireworks from the Strip from our backyard so we will celebrate with our dogs....    they love the fireworks I'm shocked,  when they hear them they run outside and look up right away....  smart little guys...

What NYEve plans do the rest of you have?

Fred, you're scaring me.  Who are the banished 1%.  I think Bennie and Ruthie need to get our of there. The red planet even has a red sky.  Cool!  Nice mountains as always.  You are really having fun with your stories and we're enjoying them too.

Marsha, we have not been to a 3D movie yet but we plan to see Crique in 3D on Tuesday.  I'm sure we'll love it.  My hubby has always been a movie fan and he's got me hooked.

Marsha, I answered your question about the January Challenge.  We were typing at the same time and my answer is just above your question.  The new Challenge could go up tomorrow night or Tuesday morning.  Whatever works for Geri.  Let me know if you need help, Geri

We are having our poker buddies ( two couples) here for New Years Eve.  For dinner, we are ordering Chinese food.  We'll play poker until about 10:30 and then I'll put our some snacks and we'll await the arrival of the New Year.  I don't ever drink but I think I'll try some bubbly.

Stella is scared to death of fireworks. If she hears even one go off in the neighborhood she's all upset. I usually don't do anything on New Year's Eve. I think I will spend this last day of the year reading, painting, eating leftover Italian from last nights outing to a resturant and probably watching a mystery movie on Netflix. :)

Happy New Year to everyone and be safe if you're going out!

Sam Poker with buddies sounds like a ton of fun.....

Staying home with Stella sounds like a good time to me.  

how we managed to make them like fire works is :   when they were small we purposely stayed home on the 4th just to be with them.  we took them out side during the fireworks and said hooray each time they went off, if we were holding them we would point their little faces up to see the fire activity. and tell them good boys....  they ended up luckily thinking it was just great fun.... lucky us.   This year we have a new little girl dog and I have no idea how she will react...   Tonight we will find out....

I want to wish all of you the best and may 2013 for this group remain as fun as it was in 2012... 

My new year resolution is to take up pastels for 2013....  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
