I have been traveling for the past few days for work. I took my computer with me but never turned it on. When I got home Tuesday night we had no internet service! I couldn’t check my email. Worse yet, I couldn’t check my blog. Even worse, I couldn’t check your blog.
So, there was only one thing to do – pack up the van, head east, and drive for nine hours to see if Cliff would let me on his computer. After a good dinner and a great visit he agreed to let me check my blog.
Okay, I have been traveling for the past several days and had no internet service when I got home. But, Cliff and Marilyn had extended an invitation for us to have Thanksgiving dinner with them on the farm awhile back.
Today, Char spent the day listening to me say things like:
“I can’t believe we are driving nine hours for a free meal.
“I can’t believe we are driving nine hours for home made dressing.”
“Marilyn’s pie better be really good if we are driving for nine hours to get a slice of it.”
“We are traveling 600 miles, one way, because we don’t want to spend thirty-nine cents a pound for turkey.”
There were probably thirty different statements like the ones above. But, Char had one constant reply, “Ralph, shut up.”
I have a feeling we are in for another great time! Hope you are too – HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
