Catch Up

Wow. It's been a long time. I don't know where to begin. We went on vacation and had a great time. We visited family in Mississippi and friends in Florida and stayed by ourselves in New Orleans. The weather was outstanding and now we're back and it's blinking cold. We even had snow. SNOW!!! yes snow. Over an inch. Ok so it went away the next day, at least most of it did. Oh. Did you hear? The Red Sox won the World Series? No kidding. We were in New Orleans the night we won and lucky for everyone else on the block that we had been to a fabulous restaurant, had an abundance of food and wine and my hubbie was snoring in the chair. If he had been awake he would have had everyone else awake too. He gets very enthusiastic and verbal. Ok so he's loud.

So there's that, and now Thanksgiving is on the way. As usual, we start out by saying rather firmly that this year we are going out to eat. My nephew will be with us and the three of us will go out on Thanksgiving Day and cook turkey over the weekend. Yes. That's right. Case closed. So how many are coming here for dinner you ask? Maybe 10 I answer. I never know how it happens but every year it does. Hopefully this year the oven won't conk out. It did last year and we had to run to a friend's house with the turkey and use the gas grill for the vegetables. Oh yeah. That was a good time. It actually was once the turkey came back cooked and all because then the driving across town stopped and we could pour the wine. I must go on a hunt for these. Won't be Thanksgiving without them.

Later Gaters
