Thanksgiving Day

Tuesday, Nov, 26 2013

Thoughts on Turkey Day....

We always get a bird that I'm not sure is big enough, but it always makes it!  I know some people don't care for leftovers, but I love them.  Especially turkey and gravy...just don't overdo it!

Packers and Lions at 11:30 on WHBY.  Should be about right, since we normally attack the bird at about 2:30, 3.....Then, your post-meal nap kicks in right about halftime of the Cowboys game.

We have a tradition of giving our dog, Bailey her own mini-plate of turkey.  Nothing else--just some shredded slices of the bird.  She loves it--about sets a record inhaling it in seconds.

The basic menu this year appears to be: turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, cranberries, green bean casserole and butter rolls.  Yum!

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Packers Monday

Monday, Nov, 18 2013

Tough stretch...3 straight losses for Green Bay to drop to 5-5. Hard to believe, but it's been just two weeks since Aaron Rodgers was pounded into the turf at Lambeau, though it might seem like a month or more....

Tonic for the Pack might be the visiting Vikings.  We have the pre-game at 10, with kick at noon on Sunday.  Justin Steinbrinck at Storm Team 5 says the early look at Sunday mentions a high of 25!

My guess is Rodgers stays out this week, then targets a return Thanksgiving Day at Detroit.  My only issue with that is that Detroit is notoriously one of the dirtiest teams in the NFL, so keep your head on a swivel, Aaron!

Last Halloween dash!

Tuesday, Oct, 29 2013

Remember the last year you were allowed to trick or treat?  I do!

Went with two of my buds and we scoured every neighborhood within a mile or two!  We double and triple layered our goodie bags so they wouldn't break or fail with all the running we were doing in between houses.  We jumped fences, leaped over hedges...heck, we probably broke the four-minute trick or treat mile!  When I got back home that night and dumped out the treats, it almost covered the kitchen table!  Mom had to do the obligatory safety check of the candy, but it was all good.  I kept all the Nestle Crunch and 1000 Grand's and she took all of those awful peanut butter chewy things...remember those?

I had enough candy to safely get to Christmas, when Mom's cookies and fudge started kickin' in!  Safe to say that I was hopped up on sugar for a few weeks that year!
