For those that are celebrating and maybe traveling, I thought I would get this off to an early start with this little story:

A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.

Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music
and anything else he could think of to 'clean up' the bird's vocabulary.

Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even more rude. John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer.. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird spoke-up, very softly,

"May I ask what the turkey did?"


HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Oldie but goodie and appropriate for the holiday.
I'll be traveling to KC Thursday morning. Good weather forecast then.

You all have a good time with family and friends or on your own. Be safe.

Outside the window, there is a collection of cars that would rival many independent car lots. Inside, several family members are laughing and talking; catching up on the past year's events. Stories are told, of this kid and that kid, and the crazy things that have happened in holidays past. Good lord, the FOOD!

Each person present is battling their own demons. Each has their own cross to bear, but for today, the trials and tribulations of life will be all but forgotten as all are gathered in one accord. To give thanks for the memories of the past, and the new ones to come.

Please enjoy this and each holiday to the fullest. I wish all the best of the coming season.

God bless...

Always a joy to have all the family around but the Rick-o-matic clean up machine is exhausted. SWMBO and son-in-law, a professional chef, can make the most incredible mess in the kitchen while putting out a gourmet meal. It takes him 3 pans to make a sauce to put over the beans. Aaarggghhhh. If I don't try to stay ahead of them on the pots and pans, we'd have to buy another house to finish the dinner.
