Well, the bird has been laid to rest, along with all the trimmings, liquid as well as solid. Rousing games of Bananagrams. Ready for a movie on the tele and trying to stay awake to see the end. Got a picture of my son from Afghanistan. Said the food was awful so they went to get a hamburgher. lol. Now he says they are sending him to Korea for nine months. Well, crumb.

Oh, he will be home the first week of January and I am flying over to see him the following week. He said they were 'on the board' to go to Korea but that was some ways out. He has been there before and liked it. Especially the food. And Jeri and Bren can go visit him there.

Mary, for 26 years I prayed for my oldest son who was in Air Force and all over the world. After 23 years he volunteered to go to Iraq for 6 mos which ended up being 9 mos. We wern't allowed to know where he was exactly but he made it home OK and then got out at 26 years. I was releaved as he has a family who needs him plus a mom that loves him. Would rather see your son in Korea than Afghanistan. Will add his name to my prayer list.
In 56 years I always cooked a feast on Thanksgiving. Well I decided not this year. I watched Macys parade and then national dog show in Phila. Then read a while. In other words I did NOTHING. All my kids cooked in their own homes. Of course they already told me Christmas had to be the usual but offered to bring some dishes cooked this time. I told them that was great and asigned something to ea. My son Jeff makes a wonderful ham. I have a 23 pd. turkey so that should be enough for meat. Others will bring sides.
Today I started working on getting outside lights ready to go up. Lots of bulbs need replaceing.
Wisemen on camels are 8 ft. tall and their legs move with a transformer. Usually takes up about 50 feet of yard to set it all up but I enjoy it and so do my neighbors. Really need a new real manger. Maybe I can talk Charlie into bldg. something substantial as usually all I have is an arched PVC pipe covered with lights over Mary, Joseph, Jesus & animals. I had better start asking for that in the morning.

Glad you all had blessed Thanksgiving. We certainly have a lot to be thankful for.

We fly to Fairbanks for Christmas with my MIL. It is a nice trip and we always take my daughter Laura along. We just laze around, play games, read and knit. Well, us ladies do. Damien usually reads or works on his computer. The man does not know how to relax. Oh, and Woody our dog goes with us, in my lap if necessary on the plane. The plane is a little 26 seater with two seats on each side of the plane which is maybe 14-15' wide. Not quite a puddle jumper but close. Takes 1.5 hours instead of 45 minutes on the big planes.

Oh, I want to go. Sounds like so much fun. I love lazing around, talking, trying new recipes and just enjoying the people I am with. I'll cook if you let me come!

Would have you along in a heart beat. Would have to fight my MIL to cook though. Only thing is she never cooks anything that she doesn't think a cube of butter will make better. She gets grumpy when we ask for no fried food and lay off the butter, but we can all stand less of that. Course with 2# of see's chocolates ---- and hot coffee -- and books. All is well.
