So, In The Dog House For Answering One Of Those “Wife” Questions …

Sitting around watching some show on tv when she turns to me and asks “IF you could go back to when we were first dating, would you still ask me to marry you?”

To which I responded “Knowing what I know now or still blissfully ignorant of what was to come?”

Which, according to some unwritten female code, is NOT the right answer.

But, I blindly walked right in to that “Does this dress make my ass look fat?” type question. (Which also should not – can not – be answered with “Compared to what?” I found out.)

But don’t get me started.

Not a lot going on around here. Had friends visit us from Utah over the Thanksgiving weekend. I made the turkeys and they made everything else. We STILL have too much pie in the fridge! They “broke in” the FILA and said they really liked it down there. Cool.

Wx is getting a lot colder. Supposed to start getting wet tomorrow for the next 4 days. The thumbnail on the wx map shows possible snow tomorrow. Wouldn’t doubt it but my “feelings” about it is we won’t get any real snow until mid-December. But who knows around here.

Took our dog (Wiz) to the vet this AM for teeth cleaning and probably a tooth extraction. If he only gets the cleaning, that’s around $1000. If he gets an extraction, that’s around @$2000. How much y’all want to bet he gets at least 1 extraction. Would bet on 2 “just because.” SWMBO is off picking him up now … (A new dog would be cheaper.)

And I had planned to pay off the credit card this coming month. Damn!

Two 10 lb chubs of 85% burger cooked down to 16 lbs of usable meat and now resides in the freeze dryer for the next day or so. Yummy stuff!

Ham slices, peas, and sweet potatoes for dinner tonight. Time to make a beef stew tomorrow.

BTW, I would. In a heartbeat.

What Were YOU Doing 60 Years Ago Today. I Was Sitting In The School Hall Waiting To Get Bitched Out …

For being in a fight when someone came out (crying) and told us to get our asses (that’s a quote) back to class cause the President had been killed. You know the news is bad when the adult cries. As an 11 year old kid the only thing I got bothered about was wasn’t this funeral EVER going to get over with? It was all there was on TV all the time.

Feel differently about it now though. Standing by for an onslaught of “new” theories, conspiracies, and outright “we don’t really know but we’re going to tellĀ  you anyway” talking heads tonight. Glad I don’t watch regular TV anymore.

Not a whole lot going on around here. Getting things “straightened up a bit” for guests that should be arriving tomorrow. Need to sweep and swab the kitchen and my part will be oh so not done.

Made a dump run. Need to make a Habitat run. (Or call their truck.) Faith-In-Action run could be in my future also.

Bought two turkey breasts (which would equal 4 turkey breasts wouldn’t it?) and thinking of trying something “different” with one of them. Maybe use Mesquite rub in the seasonings. SWMBO doesn’t eat cold turkey so I can pretty much do what I want (that won’t get me jailed or divorced or placed in a mental “institution”) with the other. Hm-mm. The possibilities …

I do like a cold turkey sammich with LOTS of mayo though. The only good reason to have Thanksgiving sometimes.

Anywho, hope all y’all have a good, and peaceful, Thanksgiving.
