We took a walk on New Year's Day. We were thinking of going to Book People but it's less than a mile away so we went across the lake to Auditorium Shores and back across the Pfluger bridge to stretch our legs. Back on the north shore we encountered the Minor Mishaps Marching Band out to help people celebrate 2012. New Year has been without mishap so far for us. If we (or you) encounter mishaps this year I hope they are minor.
