Happy New Year!




There's a party going on our dear friend Boxer is hosting the shindig. So stop by and jump into the excitement! Since its early in the day. I thought some coffee might be in order. So pour yourself a cup and get warmed up for the day to come.
For those starting early slightly stouter refreshments are available.

Anyone deciding to stop by have a cup and leave a comment. I will donate a dollar per to the
These folks help to provide housing for the family's of our wounded service members.

Happy New Year, Karl! I'm just waking up and can use a cup of that coffee. Better hold off on the stouter stuff for a while, though. Gotta go prep my appetizer to take to Moi's, and I'll be laying out a brunch spread for everyone tomorrow morning.

BlazngScarlet said...

Good Morning Karl!
Thank you ever so much for the coffee ... I only have cocktails at my place for the moment.
Ahhhhh ...... do you grind your own blend?

savannah said...

wow, a bit of irish in my mid-morning coffee! thanks, sugar! and thanks, too, for stopping by my place with birthday greetings! hope to see you again in the new year. xoxox

Karl said...

Eggy: Happy New Year to you! Hmm appetizers. I haven't made it by there yet. I will soon. I'll be sure to stop by your place tomorrow.

BlazngScarlet: you're welcome, I'll be by for a touch.
Fresh ground, yes. My blend, no. It's best to leave those things to people who know what they're doing.

Boxer said...

Happy New Year!!!

Boxer said...

This could get expensive.

:-)

Boxer said...

But I'll take my cup and go.

For now.

Karl said...

Savanna: You're welcome and I'm sure we will.

Karl said...

Boxer: Yes it could, but it's a good cause.

I find your foundation to be a very worthy cause.

LaDivaCucina said...

Ahhhhh lovely Irish coffee with cream and Irish whiskey! Divine! I'll be by a bit later on to imbibe! Happy New Year to you and the missus dear Karl! xo

Aunty Belle said...

Splendid! Strong cawfee makes me purr. Thanky too fer the good charity selection.

Aunty Belle said...

'course, Uncle will have a spot of liberality added to his cawfee an' he would luv a tour of yore boat/house.

Aunty Belle said...

Karl, may I say, ya look rockin' kool in yore tux.

Troll said...

Good Afternoon Karl,

Hope you a happy and prosperous New Year!

Jean said...

It's afternoon here...may I have coffee and Bailey's?

Happy New Year via Boxer's party!

fishy said...

What a fine way to start the last day of 2010!
Just stopped by to mention it is a merciful thing the naked Mermaid you are hanging with over at Boxer's isn't MY mermaid.

Happy Day!

Jean said...

btw, Fisher House is a wonderful organization. Good on ya.

and, Happy New Year again!

MJ said...

Put another dollar in the coffee can, Karl.

I'll just help myself to some Tullamore Dew while I'm here.

I'd best make sure I get some now before LA DIVA gets to the bottle.

LaDivaCucina said...

Just popped back 'round before MJ steals the Tullamore Dew! Wha? It's almost gone? I'll take Jamesons, that'll be just fine. Oh, no coffee please, just straight. Cheers!

MJ said...

@LA DIVA: My Jamesons?

You'll have to pry it loose from between my thighs, beyotch!

Roses said...

Happy New Year to you & Mrs Karl.

Can I have a Baileys without coffee?

Umm...do you have an emergency First Aid Kit? And an ice pack? For when MJ and La Diva sort out that MJ's Jamiesons, is not to be touched by anything other than MJ's thighs.

moi said...

Well, I got a long day/night ahead of me, so I'll be grabbing some highly caffeinated, non-alcoholic libations before wishing you and Mrs. Karl all the best for a splendid New Year. It's been an honor having you as a blog homie.

Boxer said...

Foam and Chickory! Way to go!!!

Just came by to say how dapper you look in that tux!

LaDivaCucina said...

Thanks for getting more Jamesons and Tullamore Dew, Karl! I COULD NOT PRY the bottle from MJ's hands so went and got more too! Cheers!

Karl said...

Chickory: Happy New Year to you and V. I'll give the garland a shot but I'm not making any promises

Foam: You're welcome to as much as you want, stop back for more if you run out.

LaDiva: Stop by as often as you want. Happy New Year to you and Nevah L8!

Aunty Belle: I'll see what I can do for Uncle perhaps a future post.

Troll: Happy New Year to you Sir. May it be peaceful and prosperous for you.

Jean: Welcome! Of course you may. Happy New Year to you.

Fishy: We all know your mermaid wouldn't be caught hanging around with the likes of me. Well at least not topless.

MJ: Happy to do so and you may have anything you like.

Roses: Happy New Year to you

Yes you may that's just the way Mrs Karl likes to drink her bailey's.

Of course, I have a first aid kit. I don't think it will come to that.

Moi: As usual, a wise choice. The honor has been mined too and a real pleasure.

Boxer: Gee thanks, if I could find one of those music player widgets, perhaps some ZZ Top would be appropriate.

Karl said...

MJ start sharing with LaDiva!

Princess said...

Happy New Year from the future Karl
and Mrs.
I'll join Roses with a Baileys straight up.
Need a little something to line the stomach before hitting the fountain at Boxers..

Almost needed a riot sqauad for Mj and La Diva... them gurls are fierce...

BlazngScarlet said...

It's ok, I have Jamesons ... and quite a few other libations that I am more than happy to share!

Buzz Kill said...

Excellent drink Karl. I think you have all of the Irish food groups represented there.

Happy New Year!

Pam said...

Happy new year, Karl! You movie-making, oil spill, robber-whopping diver, you! We were indulging in some super-strong coffee earlier in hopes that it might help us stay up later tonight! But i'll grab a cup of yours also.

Karl said...

Princess: hope you enjoyed your celebration, ours is soon to come.
Careful bailey's has a way of sneaking up on you.
True, but they are too darn cute to kick out.

BlazngScarlet: Jamesons it is. "Happy to share", now that's the spirit.

Buzz Kill: Well sir, I could likely think of a few others. Yet I have a feeling that most of the guests have had plenty. Besides with coffee and products from the grain, what more could you ask for?

Karl said...

Pam: Happy New Year to you! Yes, Baileys can be a sneaky libation. I hope the coffee helps. I'm off to do a little toe tapping.

Everyone: Have a great time tonight! Please be safe!

Aunty Belle said...

whoa!! The Fisher House is rackin' up!!

Uncle is unable to tear hisself from watchin' UCF pop might Georgia one or two embarrassin' bloody noses--heh...jes' the appetizer afore Spurrier comes along to whup the HATED DESPISED FSU Seminoles.

Our date will be late I reckon...so I'se peekin' in heah fer a looky see. Folks is high spirited, huh?

Wishin' you and Mrs Karl a splendid evenin'. Really Happy to have gotten to know ya some this year, Karl.

chickory said...

Good Evening Karl:

fishy said...

A toast of the bubbly to you and the Mrs. .....love a man who dresses for life events. Hope your 2011 is grand

Roses said...

WAKE UP!

I need coffee. Cream, one lump of brown sugar and if you add anything else I'll look the other way.

2011 is a little bit blurry at the moment.

Great partying with you guys.

foam said...

pushes rose aside..








:)
i need to get to the coffee first.

Roses said...

foam...bitch please.

There's a mug here for you. I had to help myself, no one else is up.

I leave you to doctor it as you see fit. I'm not taking any responsibility.

Didn't you say something about Bloody Marys?

Karl said...

Hey guy's just getting back from a bike ride and need to clean up. Back soon.

Foam, Roses: you play nice.

fishy said...

Karl!
Once you get squared away head on over to Eggy's where the holiday repast is amazing. I'm already toasting Mimosas and loving the shrimp and grits.
Blessings on your year.

MJ said...

Must. Have. Caffeine.

Boxer said...

Foood Fight!!!

Oh.Wait.This isn't Eggy's place.

Just came by for coffee, but I'm staying to see if Roses and Foam actually sparring.

weeeeeeee.

moi said...

Foam. Still looking for coffee, I see. And, still in the shoes. Good work, girl.

Karl, I'm about to get on my bike, so I'll grab a cup and go, but just wanted to say: Happy New Year!

chickory said...

mornin' Karl! happy new year!

LaDivaCucina said...

Morning, Karl! Thanks for last night, just thought I'd pop by and grab one of your famous Irish coffees before heading over to Eggy's! You looked so spiffy in your tux and your generosity (and keeping me and MJ in whiskey) is highly admired! Ok, going to make my rounds....

BlazngScarlet said...

Good Morning Karl!
I just came by for more coffee.
You make an excellent cuppajoe!

I hope you and Mrs. Karl had a lovely New Years.

Boxer said...

Just bringin it up to an even $60.00 Pal.

Karl said...

Sorry it's taken so long to get back, I had to fix a pump.

Aunty Belle: Hope Uncles team won and you got out on the town.
The pleasure has been mine.

Chickory: Happy New Year! And all the best you.

Boxer: It was a lot of fun.
Don't read too much into the mystery stuff.

Fishy: Wishing you and Blowfish that happy and prosperous New Year!

Roses: I was awake and out, glad you could help herself.

Stay focused on where you want to be and it will clear up.

I will happily party with you any day.

Foam: No need for pushing there's plenty for every one. And it was a pleasure having you attend.

Fishy: I've been there and she laid out a mighty fine spread.

MJ: Hope you found plenty, it's a pleasure having you here.

Boxer: They're quite the pair are they. Did you bring any gloves?

Moi: hope you enjoyed your ride. Happy New Year!

Chickory: Afternoon, Happy New Year!

LaDiva: It was a great time and like to commend you on your stamina.

BlazingScarlet: Thank you. Have a Great 2011!

Boxer: Amazing isn't.

Thank you all for a lot of fun and helping fine cause.

Buzz Kill said...

"Had to fix a pump." Bwahahaha
That sounds like a day in my life.

appy New Year Karl!

Karl said...

Buzz: Funny thing about the boat. If you don't give her enough attention she has a way of reminding you, she needs some.

Happy New Year!

LaDivaCucina said...

Morning, Karl! When you get some time, would you be so kind as to send Boxer your final donation tally so we can get final numbers? I sure am proud of what YOU and everyone else accomplished for charity on NYE! WEll done!

Just Another Girl said...

I hope you had an awesome New Year's Karl and hope you have a great year ahead.

Aunty Belle said...

Beet syrup infused cocktails

Karl said...

LaDiva: Done, as I'm sure you already know.

JAG: I did indeed both here and in the real world. Wishing you and BF a happy and prosperous new year!

Aunty Belle: Lots of possibilities. What if we just added a lot of extra mint to yours. Then a bit of beet sugar. We could call it a red julep.

By the way, K9 really deserves all the credit for teaching inserting links. I merely passed on the lesson.
