Pull up a chair, snap your fingers, "double latte" and lets hear whats on your mind. Gripes, comments, compliments, complaints, ideas? Lets get them out in the open and see if we can relate, have some fun, come to conclusions maybe, who knows.

We have temps above freezing for the first time in 2 weeks. This has been the longest streak of sub-freezing November temps since the 1880's. There's something to be proud of...

Good Morning

Beautiful day yesterday and another one expected today. We will probably be out in the yard working this morning while listening to Christmas Carols.

Helped with the local Feast of Sharing where over 7000 Thanksgiving meals were served. Tonight, NBA D League basketball.

Coffee to go, leaving breakfast tacos for everyone as it appears some of you need a hot breakfast.

Headed out to a local grocery store which will feed turkey dinner to about 8000 people today.

Good Morning Folks !

"Absurdity Day" ... Isn't it totally absurd? Crazy or not, Absurdity Day is staring you right in the face.
Celebrate this day in an absurd manner. Don't sit back waiting for something absurd to happen. Rather, seek out things to do that are somewhat, if not wholly, illogical. Have fun with it. But, whatever you do, don't try to make sense with it.

Hash and eggs please, Bunny

Good Morning

Boston is in the midwest where? Must be some athletic conference.

SILs are doing better, but like my wife, they have good days and bad days. Most of the time, vertigo hits at night while trying to sleep.

Got a tree taken down yesterday. Was not sure we could do it alone, but it was soooo dead, piece of cake. Then had to repair the gate lock as it was damaged taking the tree pieces out. If it is not one thing, it is another.

Coffee and pancakes please.

Question --- how can Boston be in the mid west when it is on the eastern seaboard ? --- I guess I'm a little different ---- to me the mid west is around Utah, Nevada and Indiana etc.

Gooid luck to those dealing with all the snow

have a greayt day

Hope all of you in the Mid-West are OK. Frat Brother who lives in Buffalo said they can't get out of their house.

CGRO, just been very busy with work and Mom's been in the hospital and just came home yesterday.

soutxed, hope your sister-in-laws feel better soon.

Splinter, we're going to NJ for Thanksgiving and the pro and I are supposed to play on Saturday, weather permitting.

*Leaving fresh donuts for the early regulars*

Good Morning,

Another cool morning. But nothing like Buffalo so I am not complaining.

Took turkeys to the family for them to make on TG. Found out three Sister in laws are not feeling well. They all have the same vertigo as my wife. Must run in the family.

Waiting for the AT&T tech again. Phone line has a lot of static again. Glad I dropped AT&T uverse internet.

Coffee to go please.

Good morning Handi, and everybuddy else coming in today. Today is the coldest day of winter so far, 8°F but the Real Feel is -11° It felt less windy to me this am. MrsCG enjoyed her gifts and cupcakes I brought home from Wuollet's Bakery. They serviced the bike ride perfectly.

Sid, is his garage heated?

wmsb, haven't seen you in a while. Everything ok?

sout, trying to decide if I like shoveling or mowing less... I think I like to shovel more. Under normal circumstances. I think it takes less time also. Hope you got everything done yesterday.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

In fact, while some of you were shoveling snow yesterday, I was cutting the grass.

Good morning MrGG, Handi, and everybuddy else coming in today. 9°F this am, coldest morning so far. But, I was not cold for the morning commute. Good weekend. Did a off road Tour de Cure route scoping ride on Saturday. 20 miles. Other guy seems to think it could work. Sat eve had a friend's 50th birthday party. He had the lead singer from the band The Rainmakers be there, and he played two sets, and hung out with us in between. Nice guy, and good times. Saw a lot of friends I haven't seen in a while. His birthday is actually today, along with MrsCGs, and one other friend.

Sid, I would take that gryo if MrGG can't handle it.

sout, wow, that was a low scoring game.

MrGG, dang, I didn't see clean out your fridge day until now, hopefully I will see it next year.

Have a GREAT Day everybuddy!

Another cool expected today. Locals are complaining but the winter Texans are loving it.

sout, that is nice you didn't have to go outside.

MrGG, I will just lean here against the wall (with some Wild Turkey) and hope no one asks me to dance...

We had a mix of hot toddy stuff when we were kids. No alcohol obviously. bought it in the store. It sat next to the Tang and Nestle Quick containers. Eldest's name is todd...

Good Mornin Folks !

"Sadie Hawkins Day" ... originated from a cartoon. It all began in Al Capp's "Lil Abner Cartoon in the 1930's. In the cartoon series, the mayor of Dogpatch was desperate to marry off his ugly daughter. So he created Sadie Hawkin's Day. On this day, a race is held and all the single men were given a short head start. Then, all the single women, including the mayor's daughter, chased the boys. If a girl catches her man, he had to marry her.

CGrover
How will you be celebrating Sadie Hawkins Day?

Bone
A hot toddy can be made many ways.
Hot water and brandy, whiskey or sprit of your choice.
Use hot cider with honey or lemon juice as alternatives.

Yesterday was cold and rainy all day. Never went out except for an enchilada dinner that we had purchased tickets a couple of weeks ago. Got to listen to a children choir sing while we ate. Something about the voices of small children.

More cool weather today, but have a church meeting and the Mrs. has a beauty shop appointment.

Hot pumpkin spice coffee with a biscuit and gravy plate.
