My Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone!  It is a beautiful Friday morning here in California.  I am happy to say that I am not one of those crazy souls braving the stores on this Black Friday.  I don't need all that hassle.
I wanted to tell you about my Thanksgiving yesterday.  I am still a bit on the fatigued side but otherwise doing ok.  Me, my mom and dad, and Rene went to Heather's house yesterday afternoon and stayed quite a while.  We were invited along with over 100 others.  They always have a big get together on Thanksgiving and let me tell you it was such a privilege to be invited.  I really do love Heather's family.  I did spend some of the time all spread out on Heather's bed.  Her bed is so comfortable, it is I King size too.
OMG, that menu was so delicious.  You won't believe what was on it if I tell you.  But I will anyway.  There of course was the traditional Turkey, but there was also Ham and Prime Rib.  There was salad, caviar, shrimp cocktail, fresh fruit, including pineapple and the sweetest strawberries you have ever tasted.  There were garlic mashed potatoes, a wonderful rice pilaf dish, super fresh green beans,and the tastiest rolls in the world.  For dessert there was a choice between a chocolate mousse, apple pie a la mode, or pumpkin pie.  This whole thing was catered.  I was in heaven.
I still feel stuffed as Turkey after that.  I think I probably gained ten pounds overnight.  I will have to workout forever to work it off LOL.  The topper of the day was that USC defeated Arizona State 44-24 and they still have a chance to make the Rose Bowl.  I sure hope they do, I am hoping that Heather's dad will invite me.  We are going to the USC vs UCLA game a week from tomorrow.  One thing I want to say about those ASU students, I think you are a bunch of nasty jerks having t shirts that said FUSC and I even saw a sign that said University of Spoiled Children.  I think you are just jealous and maybe the hot weather has wilted your brains.
I decided to spend the night here with heather as well.  I was getting pretty fatigued by the end of the evening and sweet heather insisted that i get some rest.  She is so special.
I hope you all had wonderful Thanksgiving and spent the day with the people you love, that is so important!  Luv ya!  TTFN

I'm always glad to have idiots around, because they make it very clear who has the real "class". Makes people like you look even better than you already do!

I'm happy to know you went to sleep with a full belly, and a happy spirit! And I'm grateful that I get to call you my friend!

Luv ya, Allison!

Sounds like you had a truly wonderful day yesterday. And yes, the ignorant idiots must show their true colors to the world. Just another bit of rudeness added to the festivities. Loved the Gobble, Gobble, song I was absolutely delighted and laughing as I read it. (Hugs) Indigo

Wow..  what a feast.   I would have eaten until I exploded.   LOL    I do hope USC makes it to the Rose Bowl.   First so that those jealous idotis will just crawl back into their hole..  and second so you can see what Ohio will do to them.  ROFL!!!     luvya

So happy you had a good day (could've done without that F-Ball plug, though, LOL!)
Love ya no matter what!
