I am sitting here with a cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee that I just brewed in the Keurig. We have the whole house fan on, so it feels cool in here, even fall-like!!! I have some of my packing done (will only be gone for a day) and will try to get finished reading the posts! We are going to Yreka for an Elks meeting and dinner. We will meet friends for breakfast at Hungry George's tomorrow morning before heading for home. TTYL

I read one of the Bobbsey Twins books that my mom had in a little bookcase. I forget which one, but it was published in the 1940s, so it was "unsanitized." I hear that when they reissued the books later, they were altered to make them politically correct. Mom also had kept one of the Honey Bunch books and a couple of books based on comic strips. I read 'em all!

Have you ever seen the Five Little Peppers movies starring Edith Fellows? They are set in the modern day (the 1940s) and are probably not very true to the books. The little girl who plays Phronsie is a hoot. We were watching one of the movies where the Peppers go to a boarding school and are snubbed by the other students, especially one very snooty girl. This girl was giving Polly a hard time near a pond. We were yelling at the screen, "Push her in, Phronsie!" And she did!

I kept looking at the clock every 5 minutes. I'm hoping that doesn't happen again.
We took a ride to Best Buy this afternoon to pick up an iPad for my daughter to use at her nursing program. They are very cool, I would love to have one for myself. And finally, my youngest took her road test today and passed. She is so excited. I now have three teenagers that drive. Eeek!
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful evening.
Goodnight!!

Congrats to your daughter!!

Hope you slept well last night!!

You think we can schedule this around the Cowboys game? Should I even bring that up?

Have a great Tuesday!

Today actually went very quickly at work. I did get the dreaded news that I will be a "HOT" item team leader on Black Friday, for the 3rd year in a row. I hate that job. I have my first training session on Thursday, at least I learn about it 2+ months in advance instead of a week before like the last few years.
Day off tomorrow, I have my physical in the a.m., and then JP has his in the afternoon.

Just listening to the Joy Strings Christmas album before bed, it is something a little different, a nice change though.




Good night, everyone.
Hope you & JP's appointments go well tomorrow.

Sorry that you have to work Black Friday :/

Thinking of you!
