It’s New Year’s Eve

      64 Comments on It’s New Year’s Eve

I’m departing from my regular T.G.I.F. post since today is a special day…it’s New Year’s Eve!!!  It’s time to say goodbye to 2010 and welcome in 2011.  We’re lucky to have our guest Hugo with us this holiday season.  I’ve got to tell you though, Hugo is just a tad bit nervous.  Why would Hugo be nervous?  What Hugo didn’t know when he came to visit was that we have a hippo that lives here too.  Her name is Henrietta, and she is the quiet type, but she is as sweet as she can be.  So, you see, Hugo has a date for our New Year’s Eve get together. 


I think I’ve finally calmed his nerves a bit after he had a little beverage.  Now all I’ve got to do is make sure all goes smoothly tonight.  I’m sure Henrietta will be thrilled too.

Just as I thought, Hugo and Henrietta hit it off nicely, and boy can that Hugo dance.  See, I told him there was absolutely nothing to worry about.  It was difficult to get them to sit still for a picture but I did finally talk them into climbing up in the top of the cat tree.  Now this is a New Year’s Eve to remember.  Happy New Year’s Everyone!!!
