    Just one of the many strange traditions they’ve inherited from the People, Ora Zella. You’ll get used to them – but wait ’til they turn eggs colors!

    Best wishes to all for a better 2023, no matter what your 2022 was like.

    When I looked at this I was like, “It’s not new years yet?!” Then I remembered that time works differently in other places. WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST USE THE SAME TIME!

    Go for catnip

    And the fireworks arrive

    Here we are, happy and alive

    Feeling the last day count 7, 6, 5…

    It′s the start of the party

    And the evening seems so gay

    So like ev’ryday

    Now’s the time for us to say

    Happy New Year

    Happy New Year

    May we all have a vision now and then

    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend

    Happy New Year

    Happy New Year

    May we all have our hopes, our will to try

    If we don′t, we might as well lay down and sigh

    You and you, and you…and I…

    (Happy New Year / ABBA)

    All best wishes for 2023 to all of you

    I’m remembering back to New Years Eve 1999 when we weren’t exactly sure what would happen at zero. Fortunately, the fears of Y2K did not come to pass. We eventually used up our stockpiles of batteries and bottled water.

    Godt nytt år!

    We’re going to have cheese & crackers, fun sodas, and other nibbles, maybe play Pandemic, Give Me The Brain, or Cards Against Humanity, and bag it after the news. We always say godt nytt år early. Dad rarely makes it to midnight, whereas hubby and I rarely go to bed before midnight. The cats don’t care. Their clock is built around when they get gooshyfood and hairball treats.

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    At the Artisans’ Studio

    Iggy Shipwright: Friends, I’d like you to meet my cousin, Ziggy Starcrossed.

    Ziggy: Pleased to meet you all. Fresh and Salt Water Cats said you could help me.

    Iron Glove: What can we do you for?

    Ziggy: You’ve probably heard about the ship, the Red Planet Spider, caught in a storm. We mad it safely to harbor but need some repairs.

    Iron Glove: If it’s metal work you need, I’m your chipmunk!

    Wally: And I come from a long ling of carpenters.

    Ziggy: Oh! You’re Awhile Fixit’s many times great grandson!

    Wally: That’s me. I’m Awhile Fixit the seventh.

    Ziggy: And we’re in desperate need of sails.

    Maat-Tilda: Not to worry. Sophitti, Arachna, and I can do whatever you need with fabric.

    Ziggy: Ari! Long time no see! Or no sea! Friends, Arachna and her friends were part of a rock group back in the day. They’re the ones who the ship is named after.

    Arachna: Wow, Ziggs! I thought I knew you from somewhere.

    Ziggy: What are you guys all doing now.

    Arachna: We’ve all pretty much gone to more serious careers. But we still get together and jam sometimes.

    Ziggy: Just one thing. Are all the materials we need going to be available?

    Soph: I think that will be fine. Hit it, Ladies!

    Happy New Year, all!I hope we all have a better 2023 than 2022. So many have lost loved ones, and there is much uncertainty. Thank goodness for Georgia’s creation of BCN and this lovely Orb, where we can all have a dose of happiness every single day.

    Happy New Year to all my dear friends on the Orb.

    Hey. Hey, you! Yeah, you, the deciders of fate…the makers of circumstance. Last year has been a little more challenging than my family or I needed. How about letting my family and I have relative benign calm for the next twelve months? I have a book to finish.

    Meanwhile, various deities and demigods stroll in the gardens of Olympus. Outside Zeus’s temple, in the most extensive and palatial garden, is a large marble pool. The water in the pool is always cloudy and shimmering. Yet, looking into its depths, you will see faint shadows carrying on their simple dance of mortality.

    Atë sits on the pool’s edge, making designs in the water with her fingers as Dionysus and Apollo approach. She smiles at the arrivals, and Dionysus nods his head. Apollo passes his hand over the waters, and they slowly clear to reveal an older man sitting at a desk, typing away on a computer; a large black cat sitting on his lap, while an orange cat, new to the family, is perched on the desk, reading the latest text expectantly.

    “So,” Dionysus begins, his voice emerging deep within his broad chest. “What fun will we have with this one this year?” Apollo and Atë laugh and look down on the mortal expectantly.

    Happy Hogmanay All!

    We started a “Virtual First Footing” on New Years 2021 due to the lockdown. We leave a small package with a mini of a Single Malt Scotch, a pack of Shortbread (amount adjusted for houses with kids), coin of the realm and a candle on every doorstep on our court, with our best wishes that all enjoy food, drink, fuel, and prosperity in the new year.

    Our virtual Virtual First Footing Hogmanay Wishes to the Orb!

    I’m an undesirable First-Footer because I’m a shortish blonde female, contrary to the specifications for luck of a tall dark man. Today (Saturday the 31st) our local Scottish Society is celebrating Hogmanay at noon local time, partly to avoid the midnight drunk drivers.

    Here are some other New Year’s Eve strips. This is one from the original Web comics. It was in April on GoComics because the sites were not in sync at that time.

    The first year the comic was in newspapers Georgia said she would have like to use that one, but of course there were characters that hadn’t been introduced yet in the newspaper so she couldn’t. The one she did was still good, Next year New Year’s Eve will also be on a Sunday. She won’t be able to do that strip exactly, because there are new characters and the kids are bigger, but maybe something similar.

    Off-topic: Tomorrow is my official retirement from a long and varied technical career. I have done my best to development artistic and writing skills over the years, so I will have plenty to occupy my time. I am fortunate to have a pretty good Social Security benefit but not enough to continue living in the tourist town where I have been for the last fifteen years. The New Year will be for re-locating and starting on the rest of my life.

    Happy New Year to all! May you also have challenging adventures in your future.
