    Good day yesterday, looks like it's going to rain all day today though, as near as I can tell. Birthday celebration for my step son today at the Texas Roadhouse. Love me some ribeye. Haven't run into a bad one yet. :) Ralphie, congrats to your son on his commission, how wonderful that his best friend was able to do that for him! I didn't realize your trip had a bigger purpose, outstanding. Thank him for his service for me. Just wonderful.
    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Cluckies your papa is in my prayers. I hope it is a super routine procedure for the doc and all goes smoothly.

    I think my Dad is getting more health issues as well. He's wanting us to be around for the holidays and even though he was sort of an absent father I think he liked those times and wants a bit of it back. So we'll head up north for Xmas day.

    Memphis sounds great Ralphie. DH says basspro shops bought out cabelas so we may get them here I guess.

    How wonderful to visit your son. And I'm sure he feels great seeing his folks too. A guy I graduated with is a colonel in the airforce and runs JBER in Alaska. I was talking to his parents at a BB game and he told them of a soviet fighter plane that came across not long ago and flew down the Canadian coast, then us coast and then finally turned out when he got to San Diego. Just being cocky while we escorted him all the way. Can you imagine? There are some crazy people out there and I'm glad we have our service people to keep us safe. Please thank him for his service Ralph and that there's a Minnesota colonel running the show in Alaska if he wants to head up that way.

    Hey folks! Well Ralphie is in Memphis and I'm in St . Louis helping my sister with Xmas baking! We will be passing each other on I55 sometime today! He's heading to St . Louis & I'm heading home to Memphis! If I had only known! It would have been the excuse I needed to get out of this baking gig!! And he missed his chance for a turkey fix! :(

    Coffee, I am with you related to the situation with your neighbor. There is just no accounting for the fact that some people completely lack common sense and any degree of social grace.

    Holm, nice photos.

    This weather is for the ducks and geese. If I had realized we would be having Seattle's weather this winter I would have got some ducks.
