Thanksgiving Week

National Bible Week
It's Thanksgiving week and it's also National Bible Week
(Sunday, November 23rd to Sunday, November 30th).

It reminds me of a story about a little boy who said he knew what the Bible meant. He told his Dad that BIBLE means...

Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth.

It seems to me that there's a lot of truth in that.

Thanksgiving Week
Here's an update on the bird. It's a 23 pound plus Butterball Brand turkey. He was recently placed in the refrigerator to thaw. He'll stay in the fridge to early Thursday morning, when Granddaddy will wrestle with him in the kitchen, and Grandmother will referee. Together we will get the turkey in the oven.

The Santa Train
Last Saturday we went to see the Santa Train. We drove to Kermit, Virginia, and were there when the train stopped on its way to Kingsport. Santa and his helpers were on the back of the train to throw out gifts to the children. It's quite an even in our part of the country. Read about it here:

Then we went to a very special place to eat. If you are ever in our part of the country you need to try. They make some of the best hamburgers you'll ever eat, and their hot fudge ice cream cakes are wonderful. Here's their sign, it's just west of Gate City, Virginia.


Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Read your Bible every day.
Apply Jesus' teaching to your life.

Joke of the Day
A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: “We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.”

The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this in. At last she said, “I sure wish I’d gotten to know you sooner!”
