Glad you are doing well enough to go back!!! Try to not hurt yourself dealing with all of those turkeys now!!!


Praying that all of the people at blockbuster can find jobs quickly.

I had to post this, this evening, on my way back to the house, I saw this guy up on his roof, putting up Christmas lights. He had also started putting up his Blowmolds on this front yard as well.

Between that and getting the Kirklands Christmas catalog in the mail today, It's really getting me excited and antsy to start decorating! I'm about ready to start playing Christmas music and start decorating the tree...

It's pretty chilly here in south GA. It was in the low 40's at daylight, but then the wind started blowing...whew! I have another pecan limb down; it obviously fell last night, and barely missed the house. Great. Gotta fire-up the chainsaw again.

I hope to do some hunting this weekend. It sure is nice weather for that!

Y'all have a great day!
I'm glad that thing didn't come down on the house... I have to ask you, but when you burn pecan limbs, do they give off a nice smell like cherry or apple woods? I've never used that kind of wood before and I'm just curious~

Your Special Post was incredibly touching, friend. We are always here for you! I quoted this portion of your post because it is the reason that makes MMC so special to me! We all may have our differing opinions, but we manage to work alongside and support each other MMC is truly a magical place all year long... Christmas lives in all our hearts and I think that is what brings us so close together.

What an incredible way to open the Special Posts as the Christmas Season nears. Thank you for sharing, made! Looking forward to celebrating the Season with you - and everyone else, of course - in a few short days!

I swear the stores out here are listening to all the complaining about Christmas stuff being out "too early" I went to 3 stores today and none were even halfway done setting up their Christmas merchandise. It is the second week of November for crying out loud!!!!

I also went to Blockbuster Video, since I heard they are closing for good, I was an assistant store manager there for 3.5 years, met my wife while working there, but I didn't leave under the best of circumstances. I felt I was being forced out because my district manager was upset that I was looking for a better paying job, she started spreading rumors and lies about me around the district. When I found out from my store manager, who was an usher at my wedding, I was just as unprofessional as she was, I got hired at my current job and basically told them I would work the last few days of my schedule, no two week notice, for that week and leave them. Which were their busiest days of the year. So I got the last laugh against her, she was very angry with me, she confronted me. Asked me if I had anything to say to her, and my response was: "Not to you." I turned my back and walked away. That was the first, last, and only time I acted that unprofessional at a job.

I am very sad for the current employees there, losing their jobs right before the holidays.

I hope you all have had a great Friday thus far.
nice you can go back to work again!
All the blockbusters have closed down here in Ontario some time ago. Rogers has shut down their dvd rental stores too. Very few place still rent out movies now. It is sad that people have lost and continue to loose jobs as a result.
