Happy Thanksgiving To You And Yours

Thanksgiving Day is always tough as it was this day in 2011 when the docs came in and broke the news to us about Sandi and her cancers. Our world changed that day and was never normal again. Certainly, this past year has been tough as both Scott and I have had some major medical stuff.

But, in the awesome news department, Scott has not had a seizure since the nightmare night in July and the cancer scare for me turned out to be nothing more than a scare. I am very grateful for both deals as either or both could very easily have gone the other way. We are also still here and hanging in despite everything and that counts for a lot. Yes, I am damn near broke and may have to sell the house in a year or so to survive, but we are still better off than back the apartments where we were often within hours of eviction every month those last few years.  Many of you continue to make the point here, on FB, and elsewhere, that you are thinking about us, praying for us, etc., and we both are very grateful. 

Whether or not Covid 19 was possibly lurking in every breath you take, it would be a quiet one here at the house. As always, the NFL is on and the Cowboys play later today. This year, for the first time in several, a turkey will soon be in the oven as I try to bring a little sense of normalcy back into our lives. Since  turkeys are really nothing more than chickens jacked up on steroids, I think I should be able to do this. Time will tell how well I pulled that feat off. 

Big time thank you to one and all who keep following this blog, reading my reviews and other things, and think of us now and then. Big time thank you to Lesa Holstine whose picture above on her blog this morning cracked me up and I am borrowing and using without shame. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from Scott and I. May you have a wonderful one.

I am glad to hear that you are working on having a normal Thanksgiving, and that you and Scott are doing well regarding health. We always have a quiet Thanksgiving. Glen and Doug do the cooking, I do the washing. Ham, special mashed potatoes by Doug, and corn bread by Glen. And movies. Today we are watching Oblivion with Tom Cruise and Bell, Book, and Candle with Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak.

Thank you, TracyK. We kept it quiet and simple. A lot of bad football. Turkey turned out really well so that helped as the other stuff I knew how to do. :)
