Auld Lang Syne my Deews

No one is having a pawty, so Lacie and I decided to just go fow a quiet dwink to celebwate the NewYeaw..


(and hope that maybe some of ouw fwiends show up)



Thinking about ouw deew fwiends, those who awe wif us, and those who left us this yeaw but awe staying in ouw heawts fuwwevew made me a little sad, but also hopeful fow the coming yeaw.

This yeaw bwought new fwiends galowe..
Sweet biwfs, and wescoos and stowies of pwogwess fow many who had such howwibull beginnings.
We also had to say fawewell to some of ouw deewest fwiends, I will nevew fowget them and know in my heawt that we will all be togethew again someday, so I have hope..........
Hope fow a bwightew tomowwow fow fuwwkids and theiw pawents.


Lacie and I sang Auld Lang Syne and toasted all of you


the song is genewally intewpweted as a call to wemember long standing fwiendships

(auld lang syne literally means "old long since", but a more idiomatic English translation would be something like "long long ago","days of long ago", or "olden days". "For old times' sake," or "to the (good) old days," or "To days(or times) gone by")


Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS
I am so vewy gwateful to have all of you as my fwiends and my hope fow the New Yeaw is that you all stay Healthy and Happy and ouw fwiendships gwow even mowe

smoochie NewYeaw's Kisses Besos Bisous, Baci

That song has nearly always made my mom get teary for years and years. Now it really does. We love you Asta, Auntie Ami and Unca G. In Greek " Agape mu " least that's how mom remembers from when they lived there.
Don't forget your black eyed peas PLEASE!!

We wish yall a Happy New Year.

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Asta
How funny that I should have to visit a blog in New York in order to 'hear' Auld Lang Syne. I have been dragged down to England and so missed the traditional Scottish Hogmanay celebration the year (perhaps the reason why I am up bright and early on 1st January for once...)
Anyway, Happy New Year. I'm looking forward to reading all about your adventures in 2010.
Cheers! Hamish.
