An Eye Towards Thanksgiving

           

See!  The deer feel safe to come out cause preacher is in the church.  LOL   I realized that I have to work Monday thru Wednesday....full days.  And Thursday IS Thanksgiving, so I figured I'd best get my warmest wishes to you all now, as I probably won't have time to do an entry until after the holiday.

 

            

When reviewing the replies and comments to 'Could You Live in Caneyhead?',  I was pleasantly surprised to find that there are a number of folks out there that share a very similar life to ours!  And there are a few that had no idea what I was talking about.  LOL  And it seems the whole U S of A uses Wal-Mart bags for trash can liners.

As to our laundry.....it's split pretty near down the middle with half of us searching through piles, digging in the dryer, etc and the other half reaching for a clean garment in a draw or the closet.

Wanted to share a little about the family as well.  We are all doing good.  Was proud of the kids for having another round of good report cards!  Each of them got to have a special day last week. 

For Bubba, it was Thursday when we took a college day and went in search of information on his career of choice, custom car stereo installation.  It consisted mainly of visiting shops, as it is not mainstream college curriculum as of yet.  The first shop we went to was so friendly and extremely helpful!  The manager talked to Bubba a good 30 minutes and stressed that a business degree is almost a must if you plan to run a shop.....very complicated what with license agreements and all.  Then, his top installer came out and talked with Bubba another 30 or 40 minutes.  Once these guys started talking to each other it was like I was hearing a whole nuther language!  Installers must know all things electrical, a good deal of math, and many skills from wiring to body work.  He even took Bubba back and let him check out and sit in the car they are doing for an upcoming competition!  And it seems that it may be when other moms are saying Bobby is at A & M or Kelly is at S.F.A, I may be saying.....Bubba is in the Snakepit!  Like I said, it's not mainstream formal education yet.  Then we went by a couple more shops, who were nice too, but as it was later in the day, they were busier and the visits were not nearly as long.  Then we went to CiCi's pizza so my teenagers appetite could be filled.  My first time there.  Very good!  Especially for the price.  On to L.I.T. to pick up a course catalogue and financial aide form, just in case.  All in all a very enjoyable day together, but Mama was pooped!

Bug's adventure was school related.  They had the traditional Thanksgiving party.  She made a poster that said she was thankful for "God, and people....everything except for Satan."  LOL  Gotta love her!  And then they took the kids to our local theatre to see the Santa Clause Three.  She gives it two thumbs up.

Pete had to put mud tires on his truck, as the road in and out of the deer camp is so very bad since all the heavy rains we have had.  He and Bubba are hunting this weekend.  Bug decided to hang out with Mama.

As to our own Thanksgiving, I believe we'll probably have our Thanksgiving dinner with my sister, Edna and her husband, Howard.  She's got a brand new kitchen this year, thanks to Howard's pocketbook and Pete's cabinet building.  So I guess you can say we are going to christen it.  Then we are likely to all go to the camp for the night. 

So, whatever you do this holiday, be safe, be warm, have fun and be Thankful!

Love,

Barbara
