Oldiesmann: If you do that then the newest post in each topic would be from 2016 for the new account as well. Also you'd have to use a new email address or I'd have to delete your current account (though I could keep all the posts you've made over the years)

Good morning..

No new snow here and a temp of 7°. Son said they ended up wih a foot of snow.Taking Kyle to an appoointment then home to see if I can corral dust bunnies.  After make bread yesterday , a quilt was finished now onto the next one. :thumbup:

You all are making me hungry talking about THankgiving, for me the best part is the stuffing/dressing and dark meat on the turkey. Of course leftovers are also tasty the next day.

Jenny , good to see you .

Better get ready..

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  This will probably be my last message until I'm set up at Christy's.  I have to pack up the computer to take with me and I'm planning on doing that sometime today.  And once it's packed up, I won't be on it.

SHIRLEY, you're taking on a lot!  Don't you think it might be time for you to turn over the entertaining to the next generation?  I know how hard that is but if we're not going to do that, why did we bother to teach them?  And it's also hard to be a guest!  I still like cooking and I did contribute the fresh pumpkin for the pies and I might even end up baking them when I get there.  But I never was really good at pie crust and Christy IS good at it.  The touch must have skipped over me from my baker grandfather and landed on Christy!  My sister was always good at crust, too.

I'm off to finish my lay out of clothes for packing then do the actual packing!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Good morning from another sunny, frigid Interior at plus ten. We are slowly creeping up the thermometer and forward to the snow predicted on the 29th. I have to go out this morning to discuss one final act of paperwork before the year's end, and I'm not looking forward to that.


From USA Facts,

"October's food prices were up compared to a year prior. Turkey and other uncooked poultry was up 16.9% over 2021. (For comparison, it rose 1.7% from October 2020 to October 2021.) Flour was 24.6% higher, while butter was up 26.7% USAFacts collected metrics from the CPI so you can see which kitchen staples might cost this holiday season.

AMY some way, get with that Piloit, and reward him,he desireves a lot of Kindness, Like I told you all that was our last trip haulling the horses. when it gets back to where we can travile we want come your way. we have pasports so even with the borders tight we can come up there. and our oldest deaughters Husband Has kin folks up there so mabey we can get theme to come with us. they are not oldenough to be retired yet. and have to still work to keep food on the table. what are the requirements (age and soforth) to hunt and fish without a licens there. here after 80 years we do not have to have Licens to hunt or fish. we have a 24 foot long Pontune boat has some dammage to the ralins and stearing poost. I plan on getting it home and repairieng the damage and screean some of it where we can sleep on it some time. do night fishing. might even build a couple of fish traps  and tie theme to somue booies and flot them in the Lake to catch live fish. Have a good rest of the day.



Well, things have changed a bit.  Frankie's schedule was changed and she has to work tomorrow so we are probably leaving early Thursday morning for dinner at Christy's.  She said, "either after work on Wed. or Thursday morning.  I'm not big on travelling in the dark and neither is she so I'm thinking...Thursday morning!  Oh well!  Things happen!

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy tomorrow and may God bless us, every one!

Good Morning everyone, well the sun is trying to come out. they are calling for rain tomorow Here. well our humidifyer has gon on the blinks not putting out any steam, so I am going to go strip it down and give it a good cleaning. Nancy's nose is all stopped up she can hardley breathe,hope you all have agood day just like you like It.



Not sure I'll get another chance to talk until after turkey day so HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL CELEBRATING!

Sorry about the change of plans, Jane, changing plans seems to be the normal these days! I know you will find the good in the change, Pollyanna that you are!   :thumbup:

Lloyd, those humidifiers are so temperamental. Good luck & tell Nancy those little old nurses that advised me to put Vaseline across the bridge of my nose & up between the eyes were sure wise... it worked back when I was 20 & still works at almost 88!

Back to getting my turkeys ready for the oven, one today for that big pot of turkey & noodles & will put the other in the oven about 5:00am tomorrow. That one gets the dressing stuffed inside as well as a big bowl baked along side. I mix it all together 'cause what bakes in the bowl is kinda dry & what comes out of the turkey very moist.

Amy, I'll share if you & Kyle show up! 

On with the day. Y'all behave and eat hardy.


I'm disconnecting and packing up the computer.  She says we're going when whe finishes work today!  Whatever works!

Sandy, "Pet the turkey".... so perfect, and I would as you can guess!  Love it!

My house smells delicious, first turkey about done so will be cutting up for the noodles, maybe a few bites since I brought home a pack of brown & serve rolls to put in the oven when turkey comes out. Daughter is here & her husband will be back soon so we will have a little pre-turkey fix! The other will be baked early in the morning with the dressing & everyone fixes all the other stuff.


Back home and ready to rest,been a long day but all was accomplished.

Rick, you brought back memories,  Mary and I would play that song on the player piano and sing along with it, we were about 14 yrs then.

Jane,  tried to call but you must have been out with Cooper.

Shirley, your home must smell so delicious/mouthwathering too!!

Happy Thanksgiving, may you be blessed with good food, family and friends. Prayers for those driving and come back home safe.

Ah, Rick, brought back such wonderful memories. He had the kindest tone in his voice. We used to know all the words to every song... still remember them but not so new ones.

Gotta tell you about this oxygen deal.... told my daughter I'm going to have my ears cranked back up 'cause I step on the hose & it pulls them down all day long. They have to be down to my chin by now. It does help, can tell a difference every time I take it off to run downstairs or outside, I start gasping. I'm going to bed soon since I will be getting up at 4:00 or 5:00am to get that 2nd turkey in the oven along with putting the turkey we baked today (& cut up already) ... into the big stock pot & getting that ready to deliver by 11:15 am. 

Jane, safe travels. Callie, keep the wind down if you can, please. And, Patricia, I found 2 Butterball Premiums only size I buy (about 13 lb 'cause that's the size my stainless steel roaster can hold) both under $15. each, all natural, no bad stuff, etc. I grabbed them early for fear they wouldn't have the little ones later. Got the 2 Peppridge Farm stuffing I always use & 4 16oz bags of Reams noodles plus the chicken broth & got the onion & celery chopped that goes in everything so I'm ready to sleep. I'll be seeing those turkeys in my sleep! It is very dark out so must be cloud cover.

Stay safe everyone, crazy people out there. Sweet dreams and God Bless.



Have a Joyous, blessed Thanksgiving Ya'll.... keep the Memories alive of all you have to be truly Thankful for.


Thank you, Mycheal, and you are on the list of being thankful for, for keeping us together.  Have 4 drumstix with these 2 turkeys, you like dark or white meat?  A happy day to you!

Lloyd Hammond

Good morning...

Overcast here with a temp of 31° at the moment.  Picked up hamburg yesterday so today will be cooking and canning it today. Applesauce to make and laundry to do also. I don't need to look for work it seems it always finds me.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving  safe travels for those on the roads.

Jane great talking with you last night.

Rick ,have that song going through my head and the wonderful memories I have of working on the farm. Mary,her sister and I would walk our 4H calves on the road , put them back in the pens and play the piano, there were a lot of rolls but that one was our favourite.

Patricia, how is the weather your way? We could be in for rain this week,needless to say all the snow will be gone then.

Better scoot.

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

David cooked our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Simple but filling and we will give thanks for it and thanks for having each other.  Happy Thanksgiving to all of S&F friends.


Phyllis, good morning; it sounds like you and David had a very nice Thanksgiving, it's good to see your post, and I hope everyone is having a lovely one with family and friends!

Well, Amy, since you asked,  ;)  It hasn't changed a whit. Plus eleven this morning and cloudy. Yesterday we were enveloped in a dense white fog that lasted the night before and all day, except there was no snow, only ice crystals. Today looks to be more of the same. No one will be traveling far today!

Our plans for Thanksgiving with the hill folk have been canceled, and we're celebrating in place. I did have a Thanksgiving lunch with friends in town earlier in the week, and I've lots of leftovers!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 🦃 to all who celebrate today.  No matter what, we ALL have so much to be thankful for🙏

We are spending our day alone here in SF today.  We bought a prepared meal from Costco for our dinner.  It is a half boneless breast, stuffing, mashed taters, gravy and green beans.  We bought a pre done baby sweet potatoes.  It's going to be yummy. 

Today we are hoping to meet on Face Time,  a lady friend of Dave's who is coming over for TG and they are cooking their meal together.  We are anxious to meet her.

I wish you all the best today and always.  I have been hosting a cold
for the past couple of days.....the coughing is the worse😩😩

We had a wonderful gathering with the best foods possible. Everyone went out of their way to fix favorite recipes. I came home so full I was almost sick. My mother would have rolled her eyes at being a glutton. I wish each & everyone could have shared.

We had almost spring type weather, warm enough to dash in & out without a coat but if you stayed out long enough you got chilled. I'm going to bed, did have a nap after coming home so full. Picture it, that feeling of stuffed to the gills, totally happy and snuggled down with a smile/grin of satisfaction. Pure bliss. Even when life isn't perfect if you concentrate of the good surrounding you, there is plenty to be happy about! Sweet dreams and God Bless. Love y'all.  Shirley/Tisie


:tickedoff:  :tickedoff:  :knuppel2:

What a way to wake call from Daniel at Amazon customer  service.

Too many scams going round and I do wish they/police could catch/stop them.

Good morning.. :)

Got that off my chest.  :2funny:   Rain is slowly taking away the snow and we have a temp of 36° at the moment.

Dealing with the apples today, some into sauce,some into pie filling and some just to eat the way they are.

Patricia, talking with son last night he said fog had started to settle in where he lives. So far we are fine but we may get it later on with this warm weather.

Shirley, now the good part comes...leftovers!! Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family and yes "Even when life isn't perfect if you concentrate of the good surrounding you, there is plenty to be happy about!"

Enjoy your day and stay safe..
