Still Here...

Wow! I love long weekends. We were able to partake in not just one, but two massive Thanksgiving Day smorgasbords. We spent Thursday with my family eating and watching football. Well, as much as I could watch after the effects of the Turkey set in. It was nice catching up with family I haven’t had an opportunity to see in a while and watching my brother’s team (Broncos) take on my wife’s team (Cowboys). In case you haven’t heard, the Broncos won. If I were the Dallas Coach, I would be searching for a new kicker, because the one they have sucks.

Friday, we went to my other family’s house for dinner. Afterwards, I set up a Black Jack game to give my Father in law an opportunity to learn how to play casino style before he took a chance with real money. After we realized that the dealer (me) was on fire and everyone lost their chips, we moved on to a friendly game of Texas Hold ‘em. Would you believe that I won the entire thing? I couldn’t, not after the week of bad luck I have had. I didn’t post about it here, but yeah…I have had a rash of crazy bad luck. That’s all I am going to say about that.

My nephew stayed the night with us last night. He is all about his new MP3s right now. So, I am spending a little time with him to explain the dos and don’t about owning a MP3 player. Don’t do illegal downloads, do enjoy your music, that sort of thing.

Well, we are off to have a little work out and kick back for a while in the hot tub. I hope everyone is having a marvelous weekend.

sounds like you are having a wonderful holiday weekend ! We are as well . We are headed to a theme park I am sure you have heard of it Dollywood . We buy season passes and this is the time of year we use them most . We love looking at the lights , listening to the music and there is nothing like riding the roller coasters in pitch black . All you can see is the blur of the lights as you are twisting , turning and going upside down . Hope the rest of your weekend goes well!
