Happy New Year to all

Who would be up early on the morning of January 1st?

Dog walkers, of course, if the predicted temperature is 38 degrees (about 100 Fahrenheit).

But most other people must have been still in bed, to judge by the freeway traffic:

Which usually looks like this:

However, Penny tracked down some signs of life in the park:

Sure enough, there had been revelry in the park overnight. And there still was!

We thought it must have been a well-organised party, because they were all still having fun, having been there all night, and there was no mess. The river was barricaded off with tape so people wouldn't fall in, but no one seemed to mind us ducking under the tape so Penny could have a swim.

Oh, and you might have noticed dog-walkers weren't the only ones out exercising.

Happy New Year! That must have been silly seeing a balloon in the park all by its lonesome!

Lassiter Chase and Stewey, I hope your start to this new year was a happy one. And yes, it was weird to see that balloon rolling across the grass.
