Thanksgiving Week

It’s Almost Turkey Day
ncookedturkey Our big bird is thawing in the refrigerator and we’ll be putting it in the oven early Thursday morning. Our company will begin arriving on Tuesday, and we’re very exited!

I Feel Good But…
I’ve been on strong blood thinners since last Thursday because of the blood clots in my left leg. I go to the doctor this morning to have my blood checked and perhaps my dosage adjusted.

I have no idea what caused this, or how long I have had these blood clots. I have had no pain in my leg, only a little swelling below the knee and some redness. I had this condition for quite some time, and thought it was related to something else. But since it wasn’t improving, I asked my doctor about it last Tuesday. He did not think it was anything serious, but ordered an Ultra Sound test on my leg just to be safe. I had that run last Thursday. That’s when my situation was discovered. The doctor was as surprised as much as I was. Anyway… We caught it and we’re working on it.


I hope you have a good week. Remember to slow down and be safe at whatever you are doing. You don’t want to have a mishap right before Thanksgiving. You might miss a good meal.

I’ve been looking forward to this week. It’s Thanksgiving week. It’s a good time to count our blessings and demonstrate our gratitude.

Joke of the Day

A young man named Jon received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity. Jon tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

Finally Jon was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. Jon shook the parrot and the parrot got even angrier and more rude. Jon in desperation, threw up his hands and grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed.

Then, suddenly there was total quiet, not a peep was heard. Fearing that he had hurt the parrot, Jon quickly opened the door to the freezer.

The parrot calmly stepped out onto Jon's outstretched arm and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I am sincerely remorseful for any inappropriate transgressions. I fully intend to do everything I can do to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior".

Jon was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. He was about to ask the parrot why he had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, but the bird continued... "May I ask what the turkey did?"
