Irrefutable Evidence to the Contrary

A girl once told me I didn't have an athletic bone in my body. Here is my irrefutable evidence to the contrary. I AM AN ATHLETE!!

Digesting Turkey Dinner

My Thanksgiving plans changed several times. The last time they changed was at 9 on Thanksgiving morning when my brother called to tell me we were eating at 12:30 instead of 3:30.

I had to wait a few days to post about this because for days I was still filled with residual anger instead of the great familial love that has been warming the souls of other Americans.

So after dear brother called I shifted into high gear and headed off with a trunk laden with food. On the way there I had the thought that if I went in the ditch, I could have a Thanksgiving feast by myself in the car.

It was a gray and dreary day. It was snowing again.

A bar of course. Not just any bar, either. A bar chock full of ambiance. A perfect setting.

The Day Before Thanksgiving

It snowed.

Snow in the Grass

Snow in the Field

But not as bad here as in Des Moines.

I baked.

Fresh Rolls

Cherry Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie

Tomorrow: more cooking, food hauling and feasting. In a bar. Not my idea.

Mitt vs Hill

(Willard) Mitt Romney has been airing ads in Iowa against Hillary Clinton. Should someone tell him that, for right now at least, Hillary is not his opponent?

Mitt vs Hill

I have mixed feelings about Hillary. I found this blog post which nails it on the head.

C left today. We took your vintage travel Scrabble game with us to play at the airport but we didn't even get a whole game in. Have you missed your travel Scrabble?

I have travel Scrabble?

She gave it to you for Christmas a few years ago. VINTAGE travel Scrabble that she probably fought tooth and nail for on Ebay. It's been in my table cloth drawer since.

Thanks for the laugh, kidlette!


Merry Christmas!
