We had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends, food was delicious, company was better.
I ended up taking a short nap while sitting watching football, I didn't mean to so now I am too awake to try to take a nap before work.

I hope you all had a great day.

See you tomorrow.

Good night, all.
Praying for you tonight friend!

All I've got are my bare hands and a kitchen knife but I bet if my family is threatened I'd look scary enough especially if woken up from rare sleep

He dismissed that and said that it was just the hot water circulating thru the pipes. So, she continued putting stuff away downstairs and then they both heard it. My father-in-law grabs a hand gun from his lock box and my mother-in-law runs outside and dials 911 to get the police.

The police came and apparently the robbers slipped away thru an upstairs backdoor. The police searched the house and found no one there. Anyway's, apparently whoever it was just broke into the house and just started ransacking it when they came home. They were in the house with the robbers upstairs.... How dangerous was that... My mother-inlaw is a wreck and so the very first thing they are going to do tomorrow is get an alarm system installed in the house.

She said they broke thru the kitchen window. So far, they cannot find anything misiing but they are still looking. Terrible isn't it, I'm telling you, it's always something....
That's so terrible to hear about. I'm glad your in-laws are safe and didn't confront the burglars face to face. I would be a wreck after that experience too. I'm sure they'll feel better when the alarm system is in place.

Oh my what an evening tonight. Dinner was fantastic and I am stuffed.... Everybody has either gone home, gone to bed or went out shopping for Black Friday. I'm sitting here now watching Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets on HBO Family. Things have quieted down now since the cops and robbers episode earlier and my Father-in-law is packing heat while my mother-in-law is not going to sleep a wink tonight.

I hope everyone had a wonderful evening tonight with their families and got their share of the turkey.....No black Friday shopping for me tomorrow, I'm eating leftovers, doing Christmas cards and watching Christmas movies all day.

Well goodnight my good friends, I'll see you all tomorrow....

I can't even imagine how frightening that must have been. Thank God they are alright.
