Tomorrow's a milestone day, and yesterday we were discussing what clips to prepare for this year's YuleTube. The days are strolling on toward the season!

Giving some thought to getting on Facebook, but I'm right on the fence. There are so many good things AND bad things about it.
Your not alone, I don't and won't do Facebook at all, nor do I tweet..I just do MMC, that's all. (If anyone else does it, then that's fine too, I just don't want to do it myself personally). I figure if anyone needs me bad enough, I figure in todays society and the information highway, they can find me. If not, they can just inqiure to the IRS, NSA, DOJ, CIA, FBI..... I'm sure they know how to find me!

Yes....NFL Football on the tube, steamed crabs and steamed Silver Queen corn on the cob on the table.... Yes indeed, a very nice way to cap off the evening~

Looks like Dallas is starting to put a thumping on Miami right now....

Oh, boy, do I miss going for a ride in the summertime and seeing the roadside signs for Silver Queen! And I miss the sweet corn my grandfather grew next door ... Butter and salt ... Heavenly!

Football.......almost bring a calming feeling over me....

When football shows up, I'm reminded of the feelings of fall....temperatures change, Halloween approaching....followed by Thanksgiving and Christmas....

I can't wait.
