    finger stick is to test my blood glucose level - normal is 80-120 & up to 160 post meal
    Good for you...mine was 117 after two hours and I had a slice of pumpkin cheesecake at the end of the meal.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Turkey day....

    We moved from the family region a few years ago. So this year it is The Kid, his Mom and I along with our Mid son and three other Mids, one from Eastern Europe (I still haven't figured out which country). Dinner is done, second game is on (USC & ASU), the house is settling down.

    It was a good day.

    Well we had a good day.
    Morning started off with a breakfast cassarole and a mimosa. We spent the morning watching the parade and reading the ads.
    My brother came up after 12. We all spent the afternoon getting the projector wired in the family room. We watched a movie. We had Steak for supper and are now headed to bed.
    Quiet simple day.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    Hun, I'm so disappointed in you. Mimosa? Mimosa? Haven't I taught you anything? Sparking wine is consumed in its current state. I'm offended. I will call you and admonish your behavior.

    HAPPY (Almost over!) THANKS GIVING everyone! Got together with all the family. Good times. Had a lot of fun. We went out to my cousins at Cheney Lake just west of Wichita for Thanks Giving. I hope everyone of you enjoyed yourselves today and that you all had some thing to be thankful for.

    Black Friday Thanksgiving Randoms

    Turkey Recipe Random.......Uncle Maister, sorry I did not see your post request for my super dee duper stuffing. I will look through some old threads and see if I can find it BEFORE Christmas.

    Our Thanksgiving Random.....First time in over 30 years that this Bear did not cook the big bird, make the stuffing, fix all the trimmings. It was just Katie and me, chowing on a small Honey-Baked Ham (a Toledo company), the best damx scalloped potatoes in the world, and pumpkin pie. Dallop.....dallop.....

    Seemed odd not having a house full of people. It also seemed odd not having to "hint" that the party is over and they could all go home.......later in the evening.

    Black Friday Random.....Katie swore up and down.....and a bit of sideways.....that she would NOT join the crowds arriving at the stores very early on Friday morning.

    She is gone now.....she woke early and headed for a couple stores. The power of landfill-filling newspaper advertisement supplements, radio and TV ads, and word of mouth.

    Gratefulness

    On T-day eve my Sister The Doctor called to tell me about her pending cardiac cath. WHAT?!? Turns out her cross-campus walk, at the pre-game pep rally a couple weeks back, wore her out. Took a stress test, flunked, they said, "let's schedule you," and then they said, "let's see you sooner." It's for tomorrow AM.

    She's only 52. And, being somewhat conversant with meds and their effects, she's figured out that this was caused by a painkiller she recently started because of last year's knee replacement. (They all helped me move in late June; she was energetically doing stairs at both places.)

    So yesterday when the 14yo asked everyone "what are you thankful for?" sis said that she is grateful for the walk over to see the MSU marching band, because that drew out the problem and it's been discovered before the massive full arrest (of which there's a family history).

    The amusing part: this will be at the hospital where she works. She knows (and trusts) the guy who will do it. They've promised to adjust the screen so she can watch the procedure. In a way, this is like applying for a variance on your own side-yard set-back, and having to present yourself to your co-workers.

    We had a fun day at my parents' house south of Denver. I got my wish and it was a snowy Thanksgiving.

    By the time Friday came around, I was sick of my folks. So sick that I joined the wife on a shopping trip.

    Fortunately, or wierdly, the shopping areas seems to have small crowds and it looked like a normal weekend day.

    And of course, gifts for ourselves were purchased, which made me feel a little bad, but it was okay as there were things I needed (since I am smaller now ) and the wife needed some new stuff too.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Mine went great until my wife's aunt said to her, "I'm really mad your mom can't help out with taking care of your (98 yr old) grandma."

    Her mom passed away November 8, 1994.

    a rough start

    My thanksgiving started with me collapsing in pain from lower back spasms. The day did, however, get much better once I had the appropriate meds applied.
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.
