It Happened again...

...for the 7th year in a row.

The Lions were upended on Thanksgiving Day; depressing.

Happily our celebration is not centered on the meaningless world of sports, and we enjoyed sharing some of God's bounty with beloved family members.

I get the cornucopia, pilgrims and native americans, but had to ask Karen, "why the escapees from santa's sleigh?"   "it's deer season," she replied. 

the butterball turkey breast was dee-lish

as were the 'taters, corn and green bean casserole

all of which paired nicely with gravy and rolls

stuffing myself with stuffing is an annual tradition

gotta have cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving; the cole slaw and olives were a bonus

Counting "his 'n hers", Karen fed 10 of us altogether; and yes I did help as much as I could without gumming up the works, but she definitely deserves the credit for our delicious meal.

We gave thanks to God in heaven for the food before us, the family beside us and the love between us, then enjoyed a hearty repast.

No sooner had we stored Thanksgiving away for another year than we began ushering in Christmas 2023...

gotta love mid century modern aluminum Christmas trees

nativity scene on the mantel

an Aldi special

pretty good movie, too

Christmas wreath and curtain lights

the sacro-secular debate rages on

It's a start, anyway, with more to come I'm sure.

How much more is still up for grabs, considering it all has to be taken down and put away in a month.

But even with all that barge totin' and bale liftin' I still found time to cover the last of my greens...

Buddy checking out the tarp covered green

...and swat a few wiffle golf balls in my backyard.

Just in time, too...

...'cause it's snowing today.

And hey, where the Lions failed, the Michigan Wolverines succeeded...

...vanquishing those evil buckeyes from Ohio.

All in all, a pretty good weekend.

You know what this means... let's get to it:

I'm sorry, the irony is too much...once touted for their brazen disregard for societal convention, now sponsored by the American Association of Retired Persons...puh-leeze...

As you help yourself to Thanksgiving leftovers, a reminder from God's Word...

later, mcm fans...
