I have to make this kind of short because I'm on dial-up service where I am right now. I guess I had forgotten how painfully slow dial-up is. I don't want to spend a long time typing out a big post only to find it will be sometime in early 2007 before Blogger gets done publishing it.
Thanksgiving was good and not stressful at all. Sue forgot to turn on the squash but the world kept turning and the sun came up this morning so I guess all wasn't lost. She did redeem herself in Gary's eyes because she made (as he put it) "The best blueberry pie I have ever had in my life!" Coming from Gary, this is a HUGE compliment, because in his life he's eaten lots of pies to compare it to. I forgot all about the gravy until we were sitting down to dinner but, again, oh well, we survived. Tonight, we are going to Sue's for spaghetti and tomorrow we are going out to dinner with Melody & Lloyd.
Pasta Bar went well except WE RAN OUT OF PASTA! Why the cook didn't make enough was beyond me. It's not like pasta is outrageous in the cost department, especially at a school where the government provides it at $5 for a truckload. One senior (and this is not joke!) literally threw himself on the floor like a baby, on his back, kicking and flailing his arms, screaming "No! No! No!" It really was quite humorous!
Well, I'm getting ready to publish this so wish me luck.
