You Know You're Getting Old When..

... you barely make it to midnight on New Years, and you're drinking water!

Our NYE wasn't too exciting. We went to a friends house for a bonfire and some food. I was fully prepared to be drinking all night and had brought the number to call in case we needed a ride home because we had too much to drink. Definitely didn't need that, ha.

Anyways, a good time was had by all. But on the way home, I get a call from a friend of ours. He was calling to let us know that one of the local, beloved old men of our town passed away just before midnight. His name was Larry and he actually lived with Chad's dad for a while when Chad moved out.
He was a nice old guy, and always wore a bandana. But he had his fair share of health problems... he drank like a fish and smoked so many cigarettes it was unbelievable. We don't know the details about what happened, but he had been suffering from emphysema for quite a while, so I wouldn't be surprised if that had something to do with it.

With that said, Rest in Peace Larry, and here's to a fresh start to 2012!
