Post Thanksgiving

Well, We went to our daughter’s for Thanksgiving, I  prepared the Turkey and it was good.  I was a little disgusted with the stuffing.  I got it over spiced a bit, but overall it was  pretty good.  We had a couple of missionaries over to eat with us, so we had a good place to put the leftover turkey.  They took home a bunch for turkey sandwiches, though we still had enough to share with Beth-Anee and Stuart, and we had gravy forever (still have a bunch) 

Stuart took his dog and went home in the morning while Janet and Beth-Anee and I  went to some Black Friday sales.  We didn’t spend a lot of money and we got a few things that we really needed so all in all it worked out.

WE came home on Saturday after a good visit.  WE have avoided a lot of potential for over eating, but found that for the aging, the turkey soup was a bit better in general than the rest of the stuff.  (Stuart has done a pretty good job taking care of the rest of the leftovers)  I had visions of freezing the soup  any finding it new homes, but we are enjoying it ourselves.

WE have been trying to get the Christmas decorations up on the exterior (and the interior) of the house, but Janet and I are both having walking problems (her legs, my back) so it is coming very slowly, but so far we have had a wonderful holiday, and hope yours is doing as well.  I sit at the computer with all kinds of things in mind to write, both for the blog and on facebook, but I end up reading email and facebook and not posting in either place.  I really hate it when, my excuse for lack of  mobility  doesn’t hold up for writing

I watched the tree lighting ceremony in New York. and it did my heart good to hear and see Tony Bennett and Neil Diamond performing.  Their voices are not what they used to be, but they were both great.  The younger singers, in general, reinforced my inner feeling that the glissando which was not written into the music by the composer should be outlawed.  It is still embarrassing to thing that back when they used to ask me to sing the STAR SPANGLED BANNER at the beginning of the GSU baseball games, I used to insert a glissando  into the line of “The land of the free-eeee and the home of the brave” line.  Maybe that’s why, after a couple of years, they quit asking me.
