November Ending

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
We ate our feast at our daughter Brandy's home in NC. It was her first holiday in her own apartment. The food was delicious. I ate too much. We had so many desserts to chose from it came down to a sliver of this and a spoon of that. The cherry cheesecake was my favorite.
We had so much to be thankful for Brandy has graduated from King's college with an associates' degree in travel and tourism,Jenny is surviving her freshman year at Clemson even though she thinks she won't. Angelique has returned from Kuwait. Everyone is employed and in at least fairly good health.
Everyone slow down a little bit and enjoy the season. We all get in such a rush, we miss out on all the fun.

Random Thoughts

These were sent to me my friend Nanci and they are so good I thought I would share.

Random Thoughts for the Day:

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to
immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument
when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap
when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5.
I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told
you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment
at work when you know that you just aren't going to do
anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue
Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it
asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper
that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash
this -- ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello?
Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine
times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer?
Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then
not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know
not to answer when they call.

18. My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad
what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I
respond to that?

19. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

20. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday
or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.
