Good morning, grmoore, Scanman, and dickc49!

grmoore, glad to hear your brunch went well. I bet the tree looks good since the little girls were helping. :) Didn't realize that the women's basketball games were AT GSU! How many teams are participating? Is GSU one of them?

Scanman, yes, a peaceful family gathering. I am officially inviting you for next year, too! You can come have Christmas dinner with us this year, too, if you'd like. It'll be at my house. Let me think....there will be....8 people here, I think. one more won't make a difference.

dick, glad to hear you made it alright to Maine. Will you just be skiing or do you have a volunteer event scheduled, too? Turkey sandwiches? YES! I told hubby just this morning, that that was what I missed about going to my sisters' house for the meal. No leftover turkey for sammies! Not that there wasn't any leftovers; I just didn't think I should ask for any to take home. :)

Good morning Claudie,

Got up to Maine last night. A bit later than I would usually do it, but here by 11:30. Got up later than normal too. Getting ready to head out to ski soon. Just having my coffee now. Had a good Thanksgiving. First up to my SIL's and all that family up there, then down to my Sister's and her family. One meal, two desserts. Have enough extra turkey for two sandwiches. The best part of a turkey meal!

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Friday! 29 degrees this morning.

Happy Birthday to Emma!

We had a wonderful day yesterday with our family brunch. Our grand-girls helped start the Christmas tree decorating process and played before and after our brunch. My wife and I capped off the day attending a movie (Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I). We had a fun day!

I will call the first two games of the Georgia State Women's Basketball tournament this afternoon.

Off to start the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning, Claudie. Well, we had a nice time in Michigan. Some of my cousins went shopping last night while we set at the house at watched football. We had a slow drive to the hotel due to the icy roads. Ready for some southern weather.

Claudie, there were 21 of us at my brother-in-law's home in Chehalis, WA. Only two of us were rooting for the 49ers! Five of them were wearing their Seahawks shirts/uniform jerseys, including my wife. She was the only one with a number other that 12. Hers is number 50 because he has the same last name as us, and the name is also on the jersey! Anyway, almost everyone was very happy with the outcome. Seattle dominated, in case you missed the game.

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING CLAUDIE AND FRIENDS!!!

Had a wonderful time with Mom today. I'm sure she enjoyed herself.

I went over to pick her up around 10 this morning. Cracker Barrel didn't start serving their Thanksgiving dinners until 11. However, I had to stop by and fill my car up. I paid $2.19 after a 45¢ discount by using Shell's Fuel Rewards card. (You get a 25¢ discount from signing up with one. Then, if you have a MasterCard you can register it and get an additional 20¢. (You don't have to use the MC, but registering it allows you to earn discounts in the future by shopping at selected vendors and using that card.)) So, it felt awesome that it only cost $30 to fill my tank which was down low enough to have the low fuel warning light come on. I haven't spent that little on a "full tank" of gas in a long time!

Anyway, we got over to CB (the one on Huffman Mill in Burlington) at 10:45. They were already jammed packed. Thank goodness Mom has a handicap thingie and we were able to get a handicapped spot. Still it wasn't until about 11:15-11:30 when we got seated. It was worth the wait. Food was great!

After we got done eating, we decided to bring Dad a plate to him. I was able to get Mom into Dad's house to visit with him for a short time. Mom wanted to see the cat, but somehow it went hiding somewhere. Mom and I got a little frustrated at Dad not thinking too much of us and we took off.

I was debating what to do next. I definitely DID NOT want to attempt to camp out for any Black Friday (or now Black Thanksgiving) stuff. That isn't me anyway. This is what I hate about Christmas all the commercialism about getting a deal on something that someone might like for now and take back later or ends up being junk. Plus the mobs of the crazy crowds. Mom would have been trampled over big time if I did something like this. I wanted to go to this place called Tanglewood Park. It is a little west of Winston-Salem. However, according to Google Maps it is a 65 mile drive one way there from Mom's place. But this place you drive through this area with tons and tons of Christmas lights on display. It does cost $15 for a car to go through. But it is advertised continuously now until the first of the year. We didn't go because of the long drive and they won't start letting cars go through until 6. So, I didn't think we'll be back in time before Mom's place locks up for the night. (Of course, she could get back in if I get someone to let us in. But, they don't act too thrilled when I do that.) I also see Twin Lakes Community which is an retirement community right down the road from me is doing something like that next Sat. and Sun. night. I don't know if there's a cost to go through it or not.

Anyway, I ended up taking a little joyride up to Danville, Virginia which is right on the NC/VA line about a 35 mile trip north. Still a long ride, but enjoyable with us chit-chatting all the way up there and back. I tried to play some music for us to enjoy, but Mom refused to be quiet and I had to keep on cutting it on and off. Not that she was annoying, but I rather listen to her than the music. We joked and had a pretty good time out.

Once we got back into our neck of the woods, we were hungry again for another round at Cracker Barrel. This time we went to the one in Mebane. A little less crowded this time. Mom just ate the child's version this time since she wasn't as hungry as she was at lunchtime.

So, I think we had a pretty good Thanksgiving. Now to put up the Christmas tree! Ha! Ha!

By the way, this time I am avoiding all retail areas until the madness is over. The only exception is a grocery store from 10-4 Saturday which I don't have a choice. (Work.)

So, I hope you and your families had a wonderful holiday today! Stay safe!

Many things to be thankful and you're one of them! God bless!

Hello, ohyeah, grmoore, EBR, kathybye, dickc49, northnut, attitash, Farful, Jerry, Scanman, and sandipaws!

grmoore, boy, I bet you worked up an appetite, clearing out those leaves! How was your brunch?

kathybye, how was your meal at Dillons BBQ?

dick, I can see why Thanksgiving would have extra meaning for you.

attitash, yes, we had turkey for the meal at our gathering. :) I know you didn't have a holiday today; yours was back in early October.

Farful, I know you are so happy to have the phone and internet back up and running. Amazing, isn't it, how much we miss it when it down?

ohyeah, EBR, northnut, Jerry, Scanman, and sandipaws, thanks for stopping in!

Happy Thanksgiving Claudie!

The first Thanksgiving was a celebration of a quite successful harvest by the Pilgrims in 1621, and was happily celebrated with the local indians. It was first declared a holiday by President Washington during his first term. I celebrate it with more reason than most as five of my ancestors were at that very first 1621 Thanksgiving. Seven crossed on the Mayflower, but two died the first winter. Knowing my history as I do, I will never take Thanksgiving for granted again!

Greeting Claudie/friends:

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours on this wonderful day! 44 degrees and windy this morning.

Slept in a little this morning and then removed the leaves from the driveway and the back deck (so they don't get tracked into the house) by our guests for our Thanksgiving Day brunch.

Off to finish preparing.

Have a great day all!

I know for sure that my brother and his wife will also be there (besides us and my sister and her husband), but I don't know which other family members will be there, too.

Hiya, Robustus!

That's too bad about the situation with your dad's car. What exactly is wrong with it, do you know? Sad that he won't get to go to Cracker Barrel with you and your mom tomorrow, but I know you'll have a good time...AND a good meal!

Time for me to sign out for the night.

Good night, everybuddy!

Good evening Claudie!

Sorry to hear about your Mom's sodium levels. I hope things can get straightened around soon for her!

As for my day. I wasn't anticipating in going anywhere since it was rainy and cold this morning. However, as you should have guessed, Dad called. He did his monthly ritual by us going out to eat. Then, we went over to Mom's place to make a payment and I snuck back to say "hi" to Mom. Then the "fun" began.

For some reason my dad is driving his car again after what I told you earlier this week. However, when we were leaving Mom's place, his car wouldn't start. So, he cranked and cranked it until the battery died. So, we tried to get someone to jump start us. But, nobody seemed to care to stop and help. Mom happened to have that cordless phone the nurses allow her to use. So, we kept in touch and she tried to get someone to come out and help, but no one did. I ended up calling that lady friend (the same one who came and visit Mom that other day) since she lives nearby. Found out she was on her way back from Chapel Hill when I called. However, she was able to get on the highway that took her straight to us. So, we waited out in the cold (it stopped raining by then) until they showed up. I am so grateful that she did. Her son was with her and we hooked up the jumper cables and in no time got going again.

Dad dropped me off at my place afterwards. Then, I got in my car to follow him over to his house to make sure his car will make it. I hooked up the battery charger to his car for him. However, now my dad insists that he does not drive that car anymore soon. So, that means he will not be coming with me to go out to Thanksgiving dinner with Mom. I am disappointed, but I knew something would come up with him.

Surprise!

I got a call from the doctor's office earlier and the news was not good about Mom's sodium; still low at 125. Now the doctor (Mom's cardiologist) is referring her to a kidney doctor (not sure I understand why, though; anybuddy know?). Called the doctor's office to make an appointment. The good news is that the office is located only about a mile or 2 from Mom's. :) The bad news is the earliest appointment is January 12th. :( Keeping my fingers crossed that nothing happens before then (and Mom ends up in the hospital). :(

Hiya, dick!

Getting snow, are ya? Well, if the temp is still around what you said, then I don't see it sticking; that's too warm, I think.

Hope the weather's alright for you tomorrow and you get to go to Maine.

Good afternoon Claudie,

Well, it was SUPPOSED to rain up to about midnight or so. Its snowing! Will see if it sticks as it is still 34.5°F. Looks like the computer models were wrong again. We were only supposed to have a dusting to inch after midnight. They are saying the rain line will back inland for a bit later so........

Do not have to go anywhere today, just out for Thanksgiving about noon or so tomorrow. Not sure if we go to Maine Thursday night or Friday morning. Will see how I feel Thursday.

Yay! Phone and internet fixed! So glad that the tech came! A fault in the line between your house and the church? Hmmmmmm, okay.

Mr. Thanksgiving? There's something like that in Atlanta every year, too; it's called Hosea Feed the Hungry. I think they also 'do' a Christmas meal and an Easter meal, too.

Claudie, Looks like I am back in business. Tech was here this morning.
 
Daughter is helping Mr. Thanksgiving this year. Mrs. Farful and I will celebrate with her tomorrow at South Park Mall.
 
Glad that our phone and internet is repaired once again. Hope the repair is better this time. Tech said that there was a fault in the line between my place and a church about a block away. The repair was completed in less than 5 minutes.

Alright!

No problems whatsoever at the grocery store, meaning it wasn't THAT busy (I think it certainly helped that I got there about 9 AM)! I actually didn't buy that much anyway; therefore, I didn't get a very big senior discount, but that's okay. :)

I DID fill the car up, and had fuel points to use up, so I got an extra 30¢/gallon off, making my price $2.39 (whew! I typed it right this time!). :) Nice!

Hello, org, yankie, grmoore, and attitash!

org, aaahhh, yes! King Tut! Such an interesting individual!

yankie, thanks for stopping in!

grmoore, good news for the basketball teams! Hope both teams do well in their next games, esp. the guys at IUPUI! Wow! A crowd at your house tomorrow for brunch! Nice idea! have a great time with the family!

attitash, oh, dear! For your job, 'steady' might not be a good thing.
