My son bought us a new TV subscription for Christmas. He's always on the edge of technology and we now have Amazon's Firestick TV. It's a bit different to get used to but we have Alexa who is always there to answer any of our questions. Last night it was fun reminiscing about New Year's from my childhood when my parents and I always watched Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadian Orchestra bring in the New Year. From our new TV set up, I watched Guy Lombardo's last New Year's celebration from 1976. Do any of you remember watching this show? I know I watched him all through the 60's when I was a child up to the 70's. I was interested to find out how much people payed to attend his celebration at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. I found the flyer above; $80.00 to $90.00 which is equivalent to over $300.00 in today's buying power. I would have loved to be old enough to be part of that audience. Sometimes, I think I was born too late as I always love old stuff!
Lilly wishes all of you a Happy New Year, too. She had a blast yesterday eating some smoked sprats as a treat. She just had a little bit as she is always watching her weight! Have a wonderful day dear friends and I wish you all the best for this New Year!
With my best wishes,
