Sure has turned cold. Who’d a thunk it? It’s time, but I do dread the cold and will be happy for every mild day we have.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with our family, and lots of good food. We all ate a lot and had a great time together. We have so much to be thankful for every day of our lives, not just Thanksgiving Day, but it is nice to get together and celebrate it as a family. We got to visit with David via Skype and he was roasting one turkey and smoking another one for a dinner with his friends.
I didn’t do any shopping on Black Friday. I am not a good shopper anyway, I don’t really enjoy it and the thought of all those crowds and all that walking just makes me ache all over. I hope if you went out you had a good time and got everything you went after.
There is a stray dog making his home on DD Highway. He is wearing a collar so I think he might be lost instead of being abandoned. He is a medium size white dog with large light brown spots and he is wearing a collar. He won’t come to anybody and runs off if anybody gets close to him, but when he hears a car coming he comes to the edge of the road and looks. He has become a neighborhood dog, with several people throwing food out for him. He is a very nice looking dog and I hope if he is lost, his people will soon find him.
My dad and mom lost a little Boston terrier out on the ridge one time when they took him squirrel hunting with them. He ran off and wouldn’t come back. They hunted and hunted and couldn’t find him. Finally they had the idea to take some bacon out there and fry it and see if he would come to the smell. He dearly loved bacon. He came up to the road, but was still scared and wouldn’t come to them, just stood and looked and ran away if they started toward him. My son David was only about 3 or 4 years old at the time and when he saw the dog, he started running toward him. David fell while he was running and started crying. When the dog heard David crying, he came running up to him and licking him like he had never been gone.
Corby, Lisa, Gavin and Levi Lux made a trip to Atlanta, Georgia to spend Thanksgiving with Lisa’s sister there. They stopped in Nashville on the way there to look around at Opryland a while. I saw their pictures on Facebook of some of the places they visited while there. There were pictures of them hiking on Stone Mountain in Georgia, snow tubing down Snow Mountain, and a trip to Rock City at Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It looked like they had a wonderful time.
