Who’s Home for Turkey Day?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I have yet to decide if I want to go home for it, or if I want to invite a few of the guys over here for dinner. On one hand, I love seeing my family, but on the other I just really don’t feel like driving anywhere. If I invite a few of the guys over for a guy’s only Thanksgiving, we can watch football and smoke a turkey in the smoker. I can have them each bring something to either cook or something already cooked. Even men have our specialties.

My buddy Dave said he wasn’t going to fly home this year, so I know that he will need somewhere to go eat turkey. I am sure he will like the idea of a gathering here at my house. I think I’ll ask around and see how many others are going to stay in the area instead of going home. If I can get at least 4 others, it will be worth it to me. And the more, the merrier!

I just have to deal with telling mom that I am not coming this year. I am sure she will be understanding, and with all the people who show up at her house, she won’t miss me that much. She is definitely going to be too busy, as she always is. I’ll miss her great cooking, but the drive is just too much for a quick trip north. I need to stay up there for at least 4-5 days to make it worth the time on the road.

What's Up With KFC

The last couple of times that I have gone to KFC it has been a disappointment. I have talked with several other folks that aren’t happy with what KFC has turned into as well. Either they have closed earlier than than posted, or they have run out of chicken or don’t have any of the new grilled chicken that they are advertising so heavily.

I think the Colonel would be rolling over in his grave if he knew how things were being run these days.

Milk

There are so many types of milk on the grocery shelves these days. Regular, 2%, 1%, skim. Then there is the lactose free and now we are seeing more and more soy milk, which just cracks me up because there really isn’t such a thing as soy milk, it is soy juice. But I guess no one would be attracted to a product called soy juice. What a joke!

The Slurpee

I was speaking the other day about the amount of 7-11 stores that are seeming to take over. I remember a song back in the 70’s that came out about the Slurpee. I thought that I might be able to find it on YouTube.com, but to no avail I couldn’t find it. This is the first time that I have not been able to find a song on YouTube.com, bummer. But I did find a funny video that I wanted to share here.

Five Dollar Foot Longs

Subway has always been one of my favorite places to get a good sub. Now since they expanded their menu to include even more of their foot long subs to be purchased for $5 the joint seems to be much busier each time I go there. Hey a good deal is a good deal and I say “Go For It!”
