Thanksgiving Forecast

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.

I'm sad over this......

I'll alaways be "LOCO FOR COCO!!!!"

Cover Story: Royals acquire Crisp from Boston for Ramon Ramirez "It's kind of bittersweet," Crisp acknowledged. "I like the guys in Boston a lot, the front office. I enjoyed playing in a city where the fans were pretty much crazy about the Red Sox. I never played in front of that type of crowd before in my life. That part was fun.

The Brick (an e-mail I received today......)

The Brick!!!
Read this today and
don't delete it even if
you are too busy!! You'll


A young and successful
executive was traveling down a neighborhood street,
going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was
watching for kids darting out from between parked
cars and slowed down when he thought he saw
something. As his car passed, no children appeared.
Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door!
He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to
the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry
driver then jumped out of the
car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up
against a parked car shouting,
'What was that all about and who are you? Just what
the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that
brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why
did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic.
'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't
know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the
brick because no one else would stop...' With tears
dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth
pointed to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my
brother, 'he said 'He rolled off the curb and fell
out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him

Now sobbing, the boy
asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help
me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and
he's too heavy for me.
Moved beyond words,
the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling
lump in his throat He hurriedly lifted the
handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took
out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything
was going to be okay. 'Thank you and may God bless
you,' the grateful child told the stranger. Too
shook up for words, the man simply watch ed the boy!
push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk
toward their home.

It was a long, slow
walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very
noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair
the dented side door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: 'Don't go through life
so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to
get your attention!' God whispers in our souls and
speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don't have
time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's
our choice to listen or

Busy week

It has been busy around here. Between doctor's appointments, both Christopher and Zak and Zak's was awful. Seems during a practice at football he got a helmet to the elbow and now he has a "dislocated nerve" That is not the proper term for it but for the life of me I cannot translate what the Dr. told me. It sounds like this....jnnvjisiufhwkjerf;efgh;e. Get the picture? So he is done with football for the season, the big game is today, should be interesting.....and he will probably be out of wrestling for the first couple of weeks. Poor kid, he is heartbroken.
So hopefully the next weeks will be better.....

Thank you.

Why is it so hard to say Thank You? Chris and I have been working the gate at the High School football games all season, I have been taking pictures so the kids can have a video at the end of the year, I also took Senior Day pictures cause the president of the booster club forgot to get a photographer. I showed her the pictures last night and do you think I got a thank you? Hell no. Sometimes I just want to grab that woman by the throat and throttle her!

I'm calling Oprah and starting a campaign, "Just say Thanks". It's cheaper and easier than paying me, right?

Election Hangover

I just heard a man on the news say "Finally, a man that looks like us". I hope that isn't the reason he voted for him. That is pathetic and I am very sad and depressed today..... .... I'm going shopping
