I'll be wearing my Hero Gear all day (which might just get me out of it)
Tell her about this really neat invention called 'the internet' and how you can shop Black Friday (or, in some instances, Thanksgiving day) from the comfort of your home without having to fight the parking and the mob of people.

If you’re going to spend time in the doghouse, it might as well be comfortable.
i had a feeling you would know what c.f. martin was. hopefully they dont sell out to a company in japan. (rumors have been flying for a few years now.)

One dang fine group of Luthiers. My aunt has a rather old one (which plays fabulously) and I’ve had my hands on many newer examples, but sadly (very sadly ) I do not currently have one of their instruments in the stable. I’ve not herd the rumors, but if it were to be sold, that would be a very great loss for Nazareth and the American music industry. Hopefully it will remain no more then rumor. That’s another reason why I’ll need to get my rump up that way some time in the near. History, ships, food, guitars… I’d be walking around in a trance with my jaw hanging open for days.

Finished the Thanksgiving decorations - which takes dds (8,6) 15 minutes to put out a few pieces and their artwork saved from years past. Going to Louisville tomorrow to a restaurant with my side of family. Then, home to prepare and get ready to cook for Thursday for DW's side of family. To really prepare for that, I went to the store for a home draft Coors Light and 4 bottles of wine. I still have a half bottle of rum for back-up. Happy Thanksgiving all Dis Dads and may we survive our relatives/ in-laws.

Genius. I’d like to have the nerve to pull that off.

What restaurant are you going to? We didn't have too much time in Louisville this summer, but it was a really cool town.

My wife and I were in the grocery store last night and ended up in the liquor aisle. She gets the idea to get margarita mix and tequila for Thanksgiving. I was trying to give her a hard time and said that I didn't really consider margaritas to be a Thanksgiving type drink. She asked me what I thought would be a good Thanksgiving drink and the only response I could come up with was Wild Turkey.

We're going to have a Jimmy Buffett Thanksgiving this year!

The Perry the Platypus imitation is spot on, but I have no idea what the rest of that means.

Stopher, I've been watching the news this morning and they've been covering the fire at Camp Belzer. Do you have any ties to that camp?
