Hi Everybody!!! I trust you all had a wonderful Holiday. Yesterday, I received an IM message from the beautiful and caring Mona, as always, she was concerned about my absence from blogging and commenting, and I simply expained that I have been very busy of late. That is indeed a true statement, and it started with the Michigan/Ohio State Football Game!
Of course there was not a whole lot for ME to say about that game, so I just stewed and sulked in private. Then there was Thanksgiving week, and I knew that I would be hosting the event, and if done right, always takes a lot of preparation and time. Plus to top it all off, we have been quite short-handed at work lately because of 'Deer Hunting'!!
In Michigan, November 15th is always 'opening day', and it lasts till November 30th. Let me explain something to you.....At the height of the Viet-Nam War, America had 425,000 armed troops in Nam. On opening day in Michigan, there are 750,000 armed hung-over people in the woods!!! 75% of the men seem to vanish into thin air!!
So anyway, we have been in need of extra help at work, so we all have been working 'doubles' to make sure the floor is covered. I apologize to all my faithful and loyal readers who keep visiting my putrid posts, and I don't seem to acknowledge you individually. That is not usually my style, and I am going to make a strong effort today to atone for my lack of presence.....
The above pictures were taken from my front porch exactly one week apart! The snowy pic is what it looked like on Thanksgiving morning..
I can hear rumblings in the house, and soon they will be screaming for FOOD!!! I think I'm going to use my left-over mashed potatoes, grate an onion, add some flour and eggs, and make some delicious Latke's (potato pancakes for the goy's and shiksa's). They are best served with a dollop of sour cream and/or applesauce!!!
Enjoy your Sunday everyone, thanks for visiting, and you will soon see me on your blog!!!
