Everything Else Is Gravy

'Tis the season to wear flannels-
Fa lalalala la la la la
Hibernate and surf the channels-
Fa lalalala la la la la
Ice and snow and freezing rain-
Fa lala lalala la la la
Wanna hop a south-bound train-
Fa lalalala la la la la

Turkey day has come upon us-
Fa lalalala la la la la
Basting in their oven saunas-
Fa lalalala la la la la
Praise the Lord and pass the dressing-
Fa lala lalala la la la
Thanks for friends who are a blessing-
Fa lalalala la la la la

Fa lalalala la la la la!

Happy Thanks-Giving to each and all.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving, m'Lord!
    I suspect that you'll be feeding, with grace, aplomb and generosity, a legion today.

  3. 72 F degrees here this morning at 7:00AM. We'll be boiling a turkey in oil later. That women will be doing her thing and I will pork up as usual.
    I work all year in getting weight off and she wrecks it in a day.

  5. It's odd.....it's the time of year when things are supposed to begin to slow down--at least this far north--and the pace of my life has been steadily increasing. I had no idea that nearly a month had passed since my last post. I have a bevy of craft shows and fairs to sell my wares at and it's been a great success. The 'bundling' season is in full swing and very rewarding--even preoccupying. But when I go to y'all's posts and realize how much there is to catch up on I have a rather startling realization of how long I've been away. I don't always leave comments but I read every one of them. I have the most interesting blogmates!

    Von: Thank you--so far, so good.

    June: My mother says that I've become the 'star attraction' with an equal amount of pride and resentment in her voice. There'll be a crowd and she'll love holding court. It's all traditional with a bit of Texas touches.

    Oldfool: It must be difficult for SWMBO to hold a fork in one hand and a gun to your head in the other. Imagine the abject cruelty of forcing you to 'pork up'. LOL You're an attractive Oldfool and a full fool is a happy fool. Oink away!

    Gwen: Thank you, Dear. There were several versions but I settled on those. I'm still working on the 12 days of Thanksgiving but can't seem to find a rhyme for Maalox.

  7. My posts have been infrequent and lame. Been way too busy trying to get our school together. ;-) Miss you xox

  8. Infrequent? Yes, indeed-and sadly so. Lame? My dear, that is a word that can NEVER be attached to anything associated with you. Bettering your lot in life through academia while working a full schedule AND being a fantastic wife and friend is hardly lame. It is commendable and inspiring. Bully for you!
