Smart Reasons to Save, Use and Invest Money

MR Cache 2010, Nov 21 – Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner

Turkey Day
Pre-Thanksgiving Day for Me

Weekly Thoughts:

My sister lives to far away to go to Thanksgiving at both my parents and her husband’s parents.  So today, we are having Thanksgiving a week earlier at my parents house so they can still enjoy the holiday in both parent’s house.

So far it’s been pretty nice, although we have to worry about my parent’s killer dog!  When I first got to the house, the dog charged me snapping as she ran towards me.  I said “Hey”, and she retreated as quickly as she came barking the entire time as she escaped.  Once she’s inside the house, she submissive (actually more evasive than submissive), I worry about my kids being around the dog.

  1. Wow, I’m completely floored that you went back so far for two reasons: 1) I have revisited that topic previously and plan to do so again sometime in the near future) and 2) I wasn’t expecting to be included in any round ups this week because I haven’t released any content on my own site.

    Side note, it’s hard to believe that I’ve been blogging that long. That’s back when I did so once a month I think. Well, it’s good that my writing is consistent 🙂

    Cheers! Thanks so much for the include and the kind comment!

    • Yep, you were rock solid all the way back then too!

      I was more impressed that even then you were spot on! 🙂

      I think there is a lot of great information in our archives… It also shows how we develop as a blogger, and is just plain interesting!

      I noticed that you didn’t release anything new, so I went back in time, just to see how you’ve changed. And you have for the better, but still you message was consistent!

      Kudos to you sir!!!

      Nice job!

  2. I hate that dog on your behalf!

    Hope the food was all good. I ended up with McDonald’s tonight! (But the salty fries were just what I needed!)

    Thanks for the include!

  3. Happy pseudo-Thanksgiving! You lucky dog with two days to have a big feast.

    Kris, I had salty fries yesterday with a McRib. I just love those sandwiches and they’re only around a short time!

    Our dinner tonight is meatloaf and scalloped potatoes. Last meal I cook before Thursday.

    • Yeah, my parent’s new german shepard is mostly black and a very pretty sleek dog. But she is so timid, it’s like the classic information to beware of the timid dog, because they are the dangerous unpredictable ones!
