As all of you know, when folks get together food always seems to be a common denominator.
We had a fabulous Thanksgiving at Jan and Bill’s. There is just nothing like a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

Our good friend Paul arrived in town Thanksgiving afternoon. He is going to be just up the street from us for the winter so we’ll get a chance to see him quite often.
After we said hi to him, we drove by our local Walmart. The parking lot was a total zoo. People were even parking across the street in the McDonalds lot. I really don’t need or want anything that bad. We drove on past and went back to the sanity of our home.
Friday morning I was watching the news and they were broadcasting from a Target store that was almost empty. Jim and I looked at each other and wondered if the Walmart would also be empty. And it was. I have never seen it that empty. We got a parking spot about four spots from the door. I wanted to find the sheets they had on sale for $25 but we didn’t have any luck in the bedding aisle or in the front of the store. Jim said he needed some kind of wire and we headed back towards automotive. Guess what we found – the sheets. Yippee.
No lines anywhere so after getting a few groceries, we were in and out.
We bought this really great ham at Frys but it was way too big for us. I called Paul and Rod and asked them if they wanted to join us for Sunday dinner. More great times with special friends. The weather was beautiful so we were able to enjoy our meal outside.
Today we met up with Dianna, Bobbie and Paul for lunch in Chandler. No pictures cause Dianna threatened my life if I pulled out a camera.
We also stopped in and visited with Aunt Happy who is doing really good. She was on her way to play bingo and was excited because she was on a winning streak.
We are keeping busy and having a great time. More friends and food are in our future.
