Funny Friday

I can't find my cable to connect my digicam to my laptop so not post with photos today; instead, I will share a funny story relevent to Thanksgiving.

A few years ago I worked for a general merchant in Kodiak, Alaska. Groceries comprised over half our business so on Thanksgiving they gave every employee a turkey as a gift. One of the departments I managed was electronics which tended to attract young workers. After giving one such worker their turkey, she was concerned with what to do with it. I suggested she put it in her car. She expressed concern that it might thaw out/go bad in the car. I explained that even if it was not late November in Alaska, it would still not thaw out in a couple hours. I'm not sure she believed me when I told her it would takes days to thaw that turkey in her car.

I wonder what it is like to not yet know the basics of cooking. Or the responsibility of a mortgage..............if you are under 20 and reading this, enjoy your youth!

That wasn't me, was it? LOL..If so, I don't recall that tip of cooking advice....but sounds like something I would have questioned. Back then, I mastered chicken soup from a can and snacked on crackers for "dinner". Oh, and I also weighed about 20 lbs less than I do now since I actually use my oven!!!

LOL Luvonne - it wasn't you but you knew her. I'm witholding the name to protect the innocent. Actually I can't think of it right now. Her mom was Thai, she was relaly small but married Steve K's son who was really tall. You were doing the customer service/post office thing by then. One day I will tell the spider story though!

Ohh...I know who you mean, however I can't think of her name right now either. It will come to me at a very random moment (most likely 3 AM in the middle of my sleep).

Cleveland!

Between quasi shopping for a new house and/or RV, we did manage a Monday - Friday trip to Cleveland. I've never been to Ohio before and ...
