Turkey Day is on the Horizon

Only Two Weeks Away!
s-corn2 Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away! We’re expecting a big day here at the Kingsport White House. Preparation is underway for a great feast and a great time. It’s tradition at its finest.

ncookedturkeyWe bought the big bird last week. He’s resting quietly in the freezer until Thanksgiving week.

Grandmother started making the Chex Mix this week, and will begin baking cakes this weekend. So, things are headed in the right direction for another great Thanksgiving.

I’m looking forward to seeing all the family, hearing their laughter, feeling their kisses and hugs, smelling the aromas of Thanksgiving, and tasting the wholesome food.

We have one strange tradition about telling the Soup Joke, I wonder who will tell it this year? It all started with Mandy many years ago. Here’s the joke:

A man goes into a restaurant and orders a bowl of soup. A few minutes after being served his soup, his waiter notices the man waiving furiously at him and immediately goes over to help him.

"Waiter .... taste my soup," says the man.

"Oh, my," says the waiter, "is it cold? If so, I'll get you a fresh bowl."

"Waiter, no, just ... taste my soup," repeats the man.

"Is there a fly in it? If so, I'll get you a new bowl," says the waiter.

"Waiter ... just TASTE the soup," insists the man.

"Did I bring you the wrong type of soup? I can get you whatever you'd like," says the waiter.

"Waiter, for goodness sake, just taste the soup," pleads the man.

"Ok ... ok. I'll taste the soup. Where's your spoon?"

Joke of the Day

One day a preacher went out to buy a horse, so he went to the man's house who was selling the horse. The man said this horse has been around a lot of Christians so he doesn't respond to regular commands he only responds to commands "Praise the Lord" to go and "Amen" to stop.

So the man was riding home and the horse was running towards a cliff then the preacher yells woe! woe! Then he remembered just in time and he yells “Amen!”… so the horse stops right at the edge of the cliff. The relieved preacher wipes his brow and says, “Praise the Lord”.
