Happy New Year!!!!

We had kind of a late night last night at John and Rammy's house. As usual, the food and drinks were great (including a MASSIVE beef roast). However, the highlight had to be the fireworks display provided by Henry and Susan.
Henry bought this big box of fireworks at a store in France for about 85 Euros, and it certainly did not disappoint. After lighting it in John and Rammy's backyard at the stroke of midnight, it churned out a rather impressive fireworks display for several minutes. Amazingly, no buildings, trees, or cars were set ablaze, and no Polizei showed up. Sure, we heard a few neighbors yelling out complaints in Swiss-German, but we couldn't understand them, who cares?
Nobody really overdid it, and I ended up driving myself, Mrs. TBF, Andy, Di, Sam, and Alie down the Bruderholz hill back to Reinach around 2:15 a.m.
