Willamena has her spot in Times Square for New Year's Eve!

When this picture was taken there were only 14 more hours till 2007. The round sign at the top provides the countdown.

At this time, people were already securing their spots for the event. A man with his young son were sitting on a blanket all bundled up in coats, hats and scarves.

For those wanting to stand out in Times Square for New Year's, this might be a good year since the weather is mild. 48 degrees is expected for the high today. 40 the low. Just get home quick afterwards. It might rain after midnight.

Willamena decided she didn't want to spend another 14 hours in this spot without treats, drinks or a restroom. Imagine, looking up at the Budweiser sign all night, knowing as long as you are barricaded in, you can't have one.

Happy New Year!

A New Year's Eve Update:
Crews are busy in Times Square this New Year's Eve Eve working to set up the stage. They also performed a practice ball drop at noon.
Security is also ready. Can you imagine the antics they must witness and put up with? They didn't even blink an eye at Mena and I with our hat and blower.

How do you see yourself in 2007?
At the gym running the rat wheel?
Slaving over the stove because you've given up eating out and four dollar coffee?
Maybe you'll be working longer hours or devoting more of your weekends to family.
At least until mid-February.

For a highly accurate and credible way to find out what people are doing in 2007, I've created a web poll. Please take it, and let me know if I've left out your resolution.

All I want for Christmas and Hanukah... isn't this suit.

Please Santa bring me an I-Paws. I went looking for one at the big Apple store in New York City, but they said there is no such thing! Think of how it would save my big floppy ears. I don't believe those ear bugs could cause half the damage the noise of the city buses and construction sites do. I need I-Paws to protect me from such loud noises. Oh, and the sirens! Please.

Second wish. A place at the Plaza. Look. My tongue is even the same color as the sign. Plus its talking right to me. "I'm a City Girl."
I am! So I should live at the Plaza Hotel in New York City!

Rockefeller xmas 013
Originally uploaded by hrkovar.

Since it was too crowded to take Willamena to the lighting of the Rockefeller tree Wednesday night, we made our annual trek the next day.
I was taking pictures of her alone, when a stranger asked if I wanted him to take our picture.
It was actually a challenge because Mena is used to me taking pictures of her. So she kept facing me and looking at me. I yelled out at him to say the word "treat" but in doing so she looked at me again. I'd say he did a great job. But he cut off the star. If you go, look for the people from NBC taking pictures. They take several, then give you a card letting you know where you can find them online. They don't pressure you to buy any, but you will want to. I am ordering several of Mena and me. I would post one for you to see, but they are copyrighted.
