Hi Kathy, the yuckies continue as it moved to the sinuses.

I look like Rudolph’s twin sister!:)

Nothing that won’t pass but wish it to do so sooner rather than later! LOL

I am making a big pot of stock for Thanksgiving & I’ve found that the more often I go & stick my head over the pot & steam...well it sure helps!

Pleeeeease don’t overdo it tomorrow!

Good idea on the turkey breast I considered the same as I’m the only one who will eat the dark meat.

Hi Hi Hi Hi!

Just popping in for a quick hello. My wonderful DH is still deployed to Afghanistan, and I'm still holding down the fort at home and counting the days until he returns.

Thanks for the warm greeting ~ I'm doing fine, actually. I've been working on some home improvement projects while he's been overseas ... removing wallpaper, painting, rearranging furniture (things like that!) I also keep very busy volunteering nearly full-time for a local no-kill, no-cage cat rescue and sanctuary (Facebook, fundraising, adoptions) ... and must say that spending Saturdays cuddling furry kittens is wonderful therapy! (smile)

At home, we lost two kitties this year (our two oldest ... brother and sister ... Daniel and Gracie) to illness, and that's always hard (and sad) ... but the remaining seven are all fine and dandy. As the weather cools off, they get even friendlier!(Grin) Of course, "cool" for us is relative, of course.... we're still in the 70s and I'm still wearing shorts.

Good evening, Luv....we get hawks fairly often (I think because we have ducks), but eagles not too often. I think there might be too many tree branches for their HUGE wing span.

Altho I didn’t get to see the one today, I have seen several in the past. Stunning!!

The dark meat is the best!!! Hmmm....I might have to get a turkey leg just for me. LOL!

That steam stuff is supposed to be really good for you....keep stirring!

Hope you are shed of the yuckies soon.

Rearranging furniture? Better make sure the lights are on when hubby comes home. d:o)

Sorry about your loss of Daniel and Gracie. If/when you are ready, I’m sure you can find new friends to cuddle, or even foster.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

A very pleasant good morning to everyone at the Canteen and to all our military at home and abroad. Thanks for your service to our country.

((HUGS))Good morning, Ladies. Thanks for this morning's thread, Star.

My sister and her husband are coming down from the city later this week with a turkey and some dressing. Looking forward to that. :-D

Good morning, Canteen.

Good morning to our

Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Star, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.
KUDOS and thank you go out to
ALL of our Military and our Allies
for their service and sacrifice.

DC Metroland weather report

~ Today...Cloudy skies this morning
will become partly cloudy this afternoon.
High 53F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph.

~ Tonight...Partly cloudy skies. Low 38F. Winds light and variable.

For once glad to be back in the office.
Friday and Saturday were busy and long.
However, this week is a short week (only 2 1/2 day work week)
so got lots to do before Wed.

Besides, I imagine a lot of you are soon to be
preparing for that scrumptious Thanksgiving meal
or off visiting for the holiday.

But please stay right where you are.
Chat up the military or a family member.
No need to fret...you know I'll be back!

The FR Canteen is

Come in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, tea,
pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM ~ DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.

Well, at least Ma’s temps are looking more normal.

And I’m not going to complain about waking up to temps in the 40s, either.

Are you cooking the turkey?

Morning Beachie!

Wet, wet out here and more expected, pretty typical, but at least no snow and ice when I travel on Thursday.

Probably going to have to fix leaks on the roof of our NEW school, sheesh, you just can't get quality work anymore :-(

OK, more coffee and I'm off...

Have a holidicious day!

Leak in new roof? Shame, right. I know what you mean about quality work.

Are you off just on Thursday? Or taking opportunity to have a 4 day weekend?

Hope your Monday is magnificently marvelicious.

Been a lot of sightings lately up and down the Salt River up Canyon Lake way, AZamericonnie. Early in the morning is probably best.
