    Happy Thanksgiving eve,

    Busy getting my share of the food ready to take to my daughter’s tomorrow. So grateful to not have to do the whole thing myself, it’s a nice break.
    The forecast is for a dry, mid-50’s day which will be nice for traveling. Tomorrow is also my baby boy’s 41st birthday, don’t know how that happened haha!

    PQ, there are rumors about the first snow next week or the first few days of December. I can wait, haha!! Glad it didn't’ turn into a big deal for you.
    It’s great that you’re getting off on the right foot with the new boss. It should make for a much more peaceful future.

    Cyn, hope you’re hunkered down for the holiday & not traveling anywhere.

    Mick, hope that dental appointment went well for you. My next appointment is in January, hopefully nothing goes wrong in the meantime.
    Just heard on the news that Philadelphia has reached 500 homicides for the year. I am so grateful we moved away from that area, we lived only a few miles outside of the city. People are just insane.
    Hope Bonnie is behaving & giving you a break.

    Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie, hello to all of you.

    Have a nice night all!

    MAE ALL...

    No snow today and above freezing. Going to stay warm and dry for the rest of the week. I'm not ready to deal with winter.

    Mick...you know how those "boys" can be teaching the girls bad habits. Glad she seems ok today. I hear you about the hygienist being worse that the Dentist. I would always get freezing for the cleaning. LOL

    Lav...yes, it is a nice break not to have to do it all. Sounds like you'll have good travel weather too. Have a great Thanksgiving tomorrow.

    Not much more to report. Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all.....PPQP

    Hello all,

    Lav, I love your attitude - you must have been a fantastic nurse, you don't put up with nonsense ��. What are you taking to your daughter's? I am glad that you are not making the whole feast! Much better to be making your embroidery... Safe driving tomorrow - watch out for the " other guys" as my father used to say to me. Enjoy -

    Mick, that carvery sounds yummy- so glad that you had a good visit with your friend - good for you for keeping that friendship going. I hope Bonnie behaves... you don't need any December dramas. Dentist visit went okay? Hope so. Enjoy those counters...

    PPQ, well your report about the new boss sounds good... I am keeping fingers crossed. Sorry about the snow and cold... take care.

    Det, hope you are feeling a bit better... unfortunately your sense of taste might not come back right away... sorry you have to go through a Thanksgiving not being able to taste things, sad.

    Pauly, who is making dinner this year? I hope that you have a nice family time - the kids must be growing up so fast...

    Well, it will be an odd Thanksgiving this year for me - I will be alone again like last year, but at least I'm in a lovely house, not in a tiny motel room (though I miss my furry buddy). Incredibly, the mover I hoped to use picked tomorrow morning as the time to load my POD! So I arranged for the delivery of the POD today, it will be packed tomorrow, picked up on Friday, and headed to Nebraska on Saturday. Quite sobering to think of most all my worldly goods fitting in a 16' POD. And I still feel like I have too much! I have no idea when the repairs will be made to my car, and I have the last Estate stuff to do in the next few weeks - hiring a lawyer for 1 hour to make sure that I do it right. Anyway, today I spend hours in the storage room trying to repack some things, make sure all fragile boxes were clearly marked, consolidating things, and trying to guess what I will need for the next month(s), depending on when I can drive to the Midwest, when I find an apartment, etc. etc. Quite the guessing game. I hope that what I kept will fit into the car! I think I'm just going to have Turkey chili tomorrow... sort of a nod to a Native American version... beans, corn, turkey. I may throw in a yam as well...��

    Wishing all a good day tomorrow...

    Happy Thanksgiving everybody hope you're enjoying yourself having a good time and a great holiday full stop bearing in mind it was us that sent the pilgrim fathers over and you get the holiday we don't I think there's something wrong there haha. Didn't get the dentist yesterday as far as that tooth goes, there isn't much they can do with that at all all, all I need to do is keep putting toothpaste on it to try and deaden that nerve. Eventually it will have to come out but until such times toothpaste will do the job. We have a new gang of animals in the backfields now as well. Not only do we have deer shorthorn and longhorn cattle horses but I have seen a few sheep in the field as well. a very cold day over here again today day I even put the heating on in the van.

    Hiya pauly great to hear from you. That sounds a bit dodgy about Lou doesn't it? Is there any way you can get him checked out? Mind you if your side of the world is the same as this there are all sorts of bugs flying around because what they reckon is due to the lockdown all the stuff that usually was passed from person to person couldn't be and now it's making time up. I hope he is ok ok

    Hiya ppqp how are things with you today then question mark hope all is well. Yes the hygienist hit the sore part of the gum next to my tooth with her cleaner. How are things at work with you question mark early days I know no but but you should have an indication now. Hope you have a great day

    Hiya lav happy Thanksgiving to you you. Well, who has turned up for the big fight then? I just read your post I didn't realise you were travelling I thought they were travelling to you you or have I got it all mixed up? Happy Birthday to your lad all the very best full stop my next dental appointment is the 4th of March hm but with my dentistry addiction I would put money on me being there sooner than that! Have a great day day does this carry into the weekend for you?

    Hiya teegee How are you? Just looking at your post do you ever stop? It seems like you go on forever! As you say it will be a different Thanksgiving, but try and enjoy yourself all be it it may be difficult but you certainly are not alone so you take care and have a nice day day

    Right folks that's me me time to go take care have a great Thanksgiving for those that it applies to and for those poor Unfortunate Souls like myself have to soldier on through the world whilst everyone else is lazing around eating Turkey haha have a great day

    MAE ALL...

    TG...I'm really glad you're not in the motel this year. Even without your furry friend it will be better being in a house. Well, with the arrival of the pod you won't be spending time sorting anymore. At lest that's one task off your list. I think it's a good idea to use a lawyer to make sure everything is done right. You don't need to be fighting with that. Turkey chili sounds like a good plan.

    Pauly..."they" are saying that with all the masking and social distancing everyone's immune system is low. We didn't have 1 case of the flu in Alberta last winter and they figure it'll be the opposite this winter. I'm all vaxed up so bring it on.

    *(&^) Just lost the site and only 1/2 my post auto saved!

    Mick...we're enjoying wonderful weather here with no snow in sight. I was wondering if you celebrated Thanksgiving, now I know. LOL Wow, the field is getting to be quite the animal preserve. Wondering if the are bothered by the drone if you fly it? I think the new boss is going to work out. He spent 2 hours with the old boss today but from what I've seen so far he makes his own decisions so not too worried about what was said. He's called a group meeting for Monday morning so we should find out what his plans/thoughts are. Then I meet with him one-on-one on Wednesday.

    Lav...hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I'll check back later to see how it went.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a great night all....PPQP

    Re: Nov 21

    Good evening friends,

    We had a lovely drama free Thanksgiving day with daughter & family. Traffic wasn’t too bad so that’s a plus!
    Came home & just sat down, calm & relaxed, nice for a change

    Cyn, haha I was taught a lot about nursing, even before I got into it by my Mom. I do believe I inherited her no nonsense attitude & have carried it with me all this time. Turns out you can be friendly, kind & caring but not take any BS all at the same tine Most people don’t realize that patients only get so much time allowed in hospitals by their insurance companies so it was up to us to move them along in their healing/rehab & get as much done in the allotted time.
    I took all the fixings for appetizers that needed to be baked at my daughter’s house like mini broccoli quiche cups & spinach pinwheels made with non-dairy cream cheese in puff pastry. I also baked a pumpkin roll for dessert. They made everything else & did a great job. The Pod sounds like a great idea although I’m sure you’re tired of packing & unpacking. Are you apartment shopping online? At least we have the ability to do that sort of thing these days. Sorry you are on your own for the holiday & I know you miss your fur friend enjoy that turkey chili, sounds perfect.

    Pauly, sorry Lou is sick. Nothing is ‘normal’ these days unfortunately. I’d be sure to get him on some Vitamin C. I doubled my daily dose at the beginning of the pandemic, just had a feeling it would be a good idea. Our immune systems need all the help we can find. I hope your day was good anyway, hang in there.

    Mick sounds like the wildlife wants to take over, haha! We have a local message board where people are always reporting that someone’s cows or goats are on the loose. Today a pig showed up at someone’s back door, haha! Good luck with the tooth situation, I have a feeling you know how to handle it the best. I have a feeling my son spent his birthday in the kitchen cooking for his family & FIL since teh DIL doesn’t cook, oh well.

    PQ, glad to hear your weather is behaving, that’s nice.
    Today was really nice, I appreciated it, believe me. Now I can save up my energy for Christmas eve when they all will be here. I will demand peace that day, haha!

    Hello to Det, Sam & Pie.

    Be well everyone.

    Re: Nov 21

    Hello all -

    Mick, I love to hear all the wildlife you have - wonderful! There's just something about being close to beasts who live so comfortable and simply in nature. Sometimes I envy them. My bunny friends are curiously getting closer and closer each day to the patio doors where I sit and look out... maybe they have a message for me?

    PPQ, it sounds like things are in a position to be positive at work - wonderful news. I'll send good energy to your meeting on Wednesday and the group meeting. It would be nice to pres the reset button! I have been looking online, but I really need to get to Omaha and drive around and get the "vibe" of the neighborhoods. I really hope that this will be the last transition for awhile. I've done enough of this in the last year and a half...

    Lav, your day sounds great, and the things you made for appetizers sound delicious! Glad it was a good time. Yes, you will make it a drama-free Christmas, surely.

    Pauly, so good to hear from you! Sorry that Lou is sick - sounds like a little boost to his immune system might help - on the other hand, kids, schools, that's that a hard situation.

    Det, hoping you are healing, and got some rest in the midst of the holiday.

    Well, yesterday I got up at 5:30 AM, left the house at 6:30, drove to storage and started taking care of a few last boxes (7:15). The 2 movers arrived at 8:30, and it was all done by 9:30! Of course, I was "toast" by then, as I was up half the night telling myself that it would all be okay. And it was. On the way back, I passed a store that was open, so got some already-made turkey and mashed potatoes, and gravy (nothing like homemade, but passable). Then I napped! At 4 pm I Decided to take myself to a movie I was interested in: "Belfast"... went back, had dinner, and conked out. This afternoon I return to storage to oversee the pickup of the POD, and tomorrow it will start wending its way to the Midwest. So everyone please send good energy for these last portions of the journey of my "stuff"! Thank you!

    Hello to any and all stopping by - wishing you well -

    Re: Nov 21

    Hello and how are we today then? Hope everyone is well well and for those that it applies to to enjoying your Turkey curry sandwiches salad soup and any other combination with the leftovers that you may have! It is very cold you today day this morning it rained this afternoon there is Sleet and tonight there forecast snow. It is also very windy, we are in the middle of storm Arwen where that one started from I haven't a clue come up but it's certainly brought the cold weather with it. Bought a Christmas tree this morning for the van when we take it away. Only a small one . So ppqp it looks like we have got your share of the snow! On its way. I also think you meant a Game Reserve as opposed to preserve. Looking at the news this morning come up up I see the British Army are finally giving up Suffield and the Prairie as a training area. There is a reorganisation yet again of the British Army and one of the things they are doing is creating 3 Ranger battalions I'm really scratching my head to figure out where they got that idea from not! As I said it is really cold over here comma even the rabbits are lying under the radiator in the conservatory!
    Hiya lav glad all went well for you over Thanksgiving and you didn't have to referee any matches! Know that you have had a taster you are going for repeat performances over the Christmas period. Hope you have a good weekend.
    Hiya teegee and how are you today then? Hope everything is ok with you. Did you enjoy the film Belfast? Kenneth Branagh has done quite a few bits and pieces. Have you got everything sorted out with regards to the storage now? Hope so it is time for you to take time for you if that makes sense full stop you take care and have a great weekend.
    Hiya pauly and how are you today then? How is Lou question mark hope all is well with you and that you have a decent weekend

    Right folks that's it time to go have a great day look after yourselves and have a better weekend

    Re: Nov 21

    Greetings all,

    Don’t you know we had to make a return trip to our daughter’s house today because YB left his iPad there, haha! Not exactly what i wanted to do on Black Friday with all the extra traffic but it worked out OK. Got to sit with my granddaughter for a half hour anyway.
    Came home & made a pot of Tuscan white bean soup since we don’t have leftovers & it was good.

    Cyn, you had quite a day yesterday! I would have worked in a nap too, haha. I’m sending up good thoughts & prayers for the safe arrival of your POD. Do you think you’ll be settling in the city or out in the country a little? You’re definitely a nature lover from what i can tell. I’ve never been to Omaha, maybe it’s more country than our east coast cities? You take care of yourself & rest up.

    Mick, I think some of your weather may be landing here. We’re supposed to see some snow in the next few days but no accumulation. That’s perfectly oK with me, haha!
    No turkey leftovers here, hence the veggie & bean soup I used to look forward to the Christmas season & having people gather for food & fun but no so much anymore considering everything. Like I said before I’m ready to kick out any person exhibiting bad behavior, just hope I don’t have to if you know what i mean. Have you seen there will be travel restrictions starting Monday over here barring anyone traveling from South Africa & surrounding countries. The Omicron variant is proving to be pretty fierce

    PQ, hope your weekend is nice & snow-free! Are you doing any holiday shopping?

    Pauly, hope Lou is feeling better, no fun being sick for the holidays. Pick up some gummies or chewable vitamin tablets for him, it should help.

    Det, hope you are OK.

    Hello to Pie & Sam.

    Have a nice night all!
