Grins, crafts, fun and food!


Roger Howell, Sandy

I’m so happy Joy shares Roger with me.  He has enough love for both of us, no doubt.  Thanks to Gene for the photo.

Joan is checking out the bling at the Resort yesterday:

Joan, bling

We resisted temptation.  Just barely.  We did enjoy seeing lots of crafty items:


And the weaver:


As well as the wood carver and all of his wares:

And then we met our own guys for lunch.  It was a fabulous day.

So today is our family and friends turkey day.  Also known as mob intimacy, since there will be close to 20 folks attending.

Dick will get the ham and turkey in the smoker this morning (ham drippings make a mighty tender and tasty bird!). 

There will be appetizers during the game time, followed by dinner:  ham/turkey, cornbread dressing, corn pudding, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, broccoli salad, fresh cranberry sauce, glazed carrots and parsnips, pears with blue cheese, rolls…what am I leaving out?

Oh yes…desserts!  I think I’ll leave those descriptions until another day.

Who’s hungry?  Come on over, y’all!  Life is good in paradise.

I'm hungry (so what else is new?) and it all sounds wonderful! I think it's so nice that you're able to continue the joy of the holiday weekend with family and friends for yet another day. That's what it's all about after all - being with the ones that you love and sharing life's blessings in all of its forms!

Have a slice of ham for me!

I'll be sure to come over next time I get stranded in the Atlanta airport.

Sounds like a fun day indeed. Good for all of you.

I wish I was closer I'd come over and have dinner then help you clean up. That's a job times two for sure.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs from cold California. :)
