Oh phooey about the watch! I guess he wanted that to be a private moment between them before everybody showed up. Can't blame him, really, but it would have been nice to see her reaction. At least he remembered it and where it was hidden. I hope she wears it today and gets lots of oohs and aahs. I'm a little worried about Rodgers today. They haven't been playing too well lately. He's good enough that I think he can do well tho. Yep! It's first baff! It'll be a doozy too, as it's supposed to rain for days. Bon appetit!

I doubt it's ever happened that someone went home hungry from one our your gatherings! Yep, you and Chuck with the bone-in ribeyes! That's what he's having today. I didn't see a reply from you when I checked my email, but I'll look again. I've done the same thing myself. We've got our TE Olsen playing this afternoon and Aaron Rodgers this evening, but I'm skipping the first game. Taking advantage of a nice day before the rain starts. We'll probably not see any sun again until Monday. Tell the family Happy Thanksgiving for me and don't eat TOO much! =)

I like the Mannings, too. They're a good bunch. No kittehs on my totem pole, tho that is a thought. I love the Native American totems and would have one made of all Indian fetish animals - moose, owl, bear, etc. Chicken stock would appeal more to me too, but I'm sure it's an excellent soup, regardless. I hope it draws some interest today. I have a feeling y'all will have a ton of food. =) I know I'm really looking forward to one of Chuck's filets for my dinner! Enjoyed getting our note from Syl this morning. Sounds like the pain meds are kicking in a little better.

I can understand about Manning. He really wanted a Super Bowl win before he went out and it sure doesn't look like he'll get one. Alzheimer's is indeed a sneaky bastid. And scary as hell. Yeah, I hate that we've had to cut down several of our pine trees. They're so old and majestic. This time we just had the trimmers climb up and top them off, so they're still there but if you look way up, there are no limbs any more to drop sap on the driveway. They're just a giant poles. I wish I knew a totem pole carver. =) Did you make your soup last night or are you waiting until today?

Ooh, those stickers sure could poke a hole in your hand or arm if you weren't careful. Ouch! Glad to hear the tire was fine. Makes me sad to hear about your dad. He's so glad to have you there for all these little daily things. I know it weighs on you to have to go over these things with him, but then it's got to help that he's so happy when he's reminded. It's hard for those sports giants to give up the game that's been their lives for so long.. Kobe and Peyton Manning are prime examples. And remember Bret Favre? That got to the point of being really embarrassing. Yep, the tree trimmers did a good job. It will really help keep the pine sap off our cars. that stuff is horrible.

Must be some tough thorns on those plants. I've never seen one up close, but I'd imagine they would have to be to puncture a tire. We are done shopping. I figure the store's probably a madhouse today and with the doctor appointments I sure didn't want to have to find out. We're having steaks for dinner tomorrow, with masher taters and probably black eyed peas. I hope your soup is enjoyed tomorrow! I'm sure your niece will like it at least. Get this - my first appointment this morning was was 9:15 but they wanted me there at 8:45 to fill out paperwork. I got there about 5 minutes early, had my papery stuff done in no time and the tech came out at 8:50 to get me. The scan took maybe 10 minutes altogether and I was out of there just after 9:00. Then I drove to my doc's office to leave a blood sample, was out of there in 15 minutes and home by 9:30. Could nawt believe it! Ate some brekkie as I wasn't allowed to eat or drink before the blood sample and then took a nap. AND, the tree guys showed up. They thought Chuck had said "tomorrow or the next day". Whatever. Chuck bit his tongue and told them to go ahead. Now we'll be able to park in the driveway without getting pine sap all over our pretty new car! And now I have the rest of the day today to be a bum, something I'm really good at =)

YAY DUBS! Keep it up! Now I'll be rooting for Stanford to beat ND. That is pretty weird about the thorn. I'm sure they don't just pop off. Have you trimmed them lately? Glad you have a full-sized spare, especially since you have some driving to do before Friday. I promise to not forget the rules. =) You know, I keep forgetting a even have a sunroof now. I'm not used to looking up when I'm in the car. A new toy to play with!

Oh yeah, I read the tire story this morning but it flew right out of my head. Nasty old thorn! I'd say you really got a good deal and how nice to be treated so fairly! Damn tree trimmers! But then, you can't really expect much from a group like that, I suppose. Still, a call would have been nice. Gee, I feel just a bit guilty about the possibility of getting (or being) sick now. I really didn't consider how it would affect you. Can you ever forgive me? Well, first let's find out if I really am sick. There's a good chance everything is fine. I at least don't expect to be fighting the kind of battles Syl is. Ah, the car! I like sitting up tall, and the power, and the Sirius XM. And of course the new car smell. The only thing I'm having trouble with is remembering to power up the windows BEFORE I turn the car off. ACK!

Another hectic day of running around and trying to get somewhere with insurance idiots on the phone. =( The stupid tree trimmers never showed up, or called. I did get some good driving time in, without putting any dents in the new car. Tomorrow morning I've got the CT Lung Scan and then have to stop by the doctor's to give more blood. Oh yay! After that I'm hoping not to move at ALL!

Email. But I never answered this one. No, can eat whatever I want, but the high power pain killers easily cause constipation - a very mundane, but to be avoided issue :) But it is true I have very little appetite and Bryan is constantly coaxing me to eat. I have been drinking an Instant Breakfast in the am to get necessry protein etc. For some reason I have redisovered egg salad and have been making sammies. Eggs are a great all purpose food.

We could really use McCaffrey about now. He's playing better than most of our guys. Looks like we've lost in the 14-team league, so we'll slip out of first place. That's okay tho. We should still make the playoffs there. And the top finishing team each year never, ever wins the championship, oddly enough. It seems to be a curse, like the Sports Illustrated NFL player who makes the cover each year. In the other league we've won our game, but even if we get in the playoffs, our chances of winning even the first round are slim to none. If we get a road trip in today we'll probably head northwest out of the city. It's a pretty drive out that way and traffic is light. Mainly I just want to get more familiar with where all the knobs, dials and other stuff I'll need is located. I might just sit in the driveway with the car running and play around with stuff. =)

WIll have to do some more later. Bryan just came home from helping son and his BFF with enclosing the 4 car open car port. He wants to hear about my scintiliating day :) I know he is wanting to pump me up about what I actually did manage to accomplish today. Today is my "liquid diet day" but he is grilling a Cornish Game Hen and I will at least have a breast of that
By Fauxpaws on Nov 22, 2015 at 7:12 AM
Awesome indeed! Sure put a smile on my face! Wow, McCaffrey is one hell of a player! I'm listening to the sportscasters talk about what a pill Greg Hardy is for Dallas. Gee, really??!! I think they'll keep him until they know for sure they're not going to make the playoffs and then dump him like a hot tater.
