Let The Holler-Day Unclenching Begin!

“You can’t pick your family but you can pick your friends.” So, if your family stresses you out and gets you all clenched-up… Don’t reach for the ex-lax… have Thanksgiving with friends… Like me!


Save the possum gizzard for me! Everything is basted in genuine gopher grease!


Me, Gunther, Tom Waits and the gang are havin’ a turkey with all the fixin’s later!

    • Lol! I almost forgot to mention the Gopher giblet gravy… Who knew that The Beverly Hillbillies ate cat vittles? We ate everything out of big, giant Jethro Bodine bowls! Granny kept checking Gunther to see if he would fit in one of her pots! I don’t think Ellie Mae would let Granny cook us, though. πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha! I’m jealous, you are in the best spot for a beautiful and balmy holiday season! Gunther says that we should get our good friend Dexter Morgan from Showtime to drop in and visit you over the holler-day season! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

      • It’s a good thing football [and the feedbag] was on – it’s been very windy, cold and damp for days now!!


      • I think everybody is having kind of a crappy weather spell right now. Cold spells are especially painful in sunny warm spots like Florida. But, for you, it will soon turn warm and comfortable. You probably will have a Christmas Day and New Years Day BBQ! πŸ™‚

      • I’m a huge fan of Perry Mason, it is still on MeTV twice a day along with the other shows on your list.! I’ll bet you have Me TV in your area… It seems to be everywhere. πŸ™‚

      • Thanks for the info, Tom. Generally I don’t turn the tube on until the evening news time. It’s winter and that’s about to change. I hibernate, usually doing handwork. πŸ™‚

      • Television is a big blur to my low vision, so the old programs are easier for me to follow because they have fewer characters and they are much more recognizable and distinct then the characters on new television programs. I can enjoy television on my tablet much better than on a television set because I can put the tablet right up to my face. πŸ™‚ me TV also has a website where you can watch programs.

      • I don’t know what’s going on here at WordPress! Your comments are showing up today way down the comments list. I guess I’ll have to make sure I double check these things. I’m glad you found me TV! It has lots of good old programs on it.

      • My WordPress acct. has has a few glitches of late. I suspect a number of things: I have, on my end, updated and abbreviated bits of my acct., also, I’m currently upgrading all devices to run on the newest release of operating systems. I was in the Apple Store today getting my new iPhone 6 configured from an old 3G operating system on an iPhone 4. My iPad is wondering about my new iPhone, my iPAD is concerned about my aging iMac. Factor in my age, Black Friday online shopping, Cyber Monday shopping, and the age of the old lady trying to simply navigate a Monday, and you have your conclusions. Oh, and don’t forget how important I am to the NSA (Not Saying Anything) organization. πŸ˜‰

      • Hahaha! Good one! I’m amazed that any of this stuff works at all. I can put up with most of it. The thing that I do miss, is the old WordPress reader from about a year ago. It would hold every post from all of my subscriptions. Now there are only 20 posts maximum. 😦

      • When I was on Facebook… Ugh… I had so many weird experiences with creepy strange computer glitches… One morning I checked my facebook messages and to my surprise, every message I ever sent or received on Facebook magically reappeared! Hundreds of them! Posts from Facebook friends that they posted years before I was even on Facebook… I solar and I was not the only 1 this was happening to, fortunately, I thought I was losing my mind. I certainly do not miss any of the goofy nonsense that is facebook.

      • I made the mistake of taking up those cigs in my early twenties, tossed ’em to the wind and after five attempts at quitting, success was on my doorstep. Now I have asthma. If I took up FaceBook I’d have the longest lost friends and relatives one could imagine. Drama? Three cats and a Labrador Retriever are all I can handle.
        I need serenity, The Art of Zen, Yoga, Rhythmic Breathing and my blog friends, my neighbors, and my best buds. I love my family and dear friends too much to find out if they’re eating lunch at the same exact time that I am. It isn’t important for me to have a minute-by-minute playbook of their social calendar, and OMGosh, do I really need to see one more ‘selfie?.’ But then again, maybe they would enjoy how I awoke to find out about the flat tire on my car, the twenty minute wait for AAA to arrive, or better yet, a run down on my disappointment with service at the big box store.
        Naw. All is best in the Land of Nod, or in my case, Nada. Ignorance is bliss, aging is a surprise, and living life to the fullest is the greatest gift of all.
