The Night Before Thanksgiving

It’s been busy here. Kara got off work at 2:00PM and has been baking ever since. Pies, jello salads, marinating the turkey, devilled eggs, the list goes on. The smells are amazing.

As it’s been getting harder for me to travel for even short distances, my family will be staying put and having a dinner with our close friends and possibly Kara’s dad. I did say possibly, didn’t I?! We’ll have 15 people in our home, sharing good food and company. It should be great fun.

We’re trying something new this year and that’s deep-fried turkey. We’ve had it once before but this is the first time that we’ve done it on our own. It has an amazing taste and the injectionable marinade really adds lots of flavor. Did I mention the pumpkin cheesecake? Amazing stuff!

My family wishes all of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. All those serving in the military, our prayers are with you. We’re deeply indebted to you and the sacrifice that you’re willing to make on our behalf.

I’m Superman

Most everybody knows my love of all things Superman, hence the username clarkkent93. Lo and behold, I found a blog quiz that answered that all important question: What superhero are you? Here’s the results

You Are Superman
Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
And pretty cute too. No wonder you’re the most popular superhero ever!
I’m satisfied with those results!  Up, up, and away!

It’s My Birthday

Yes, it is.  I’ll say it again if I have to.  I’m not a big fan of my own birthday.  I don’t know why and it’s not because I’m getting older.  I’m 36 and that’s not old.  It’s taken almost 13 years for my wife to give up but this year I got my wish…no cake, no big bash or anything like that.  It was a relief.  Just to let people know that I’m not completely heartless, here’s one of those blog quizzes on what my birth date means:

Your Birthdate: November 20

You are a virtual roller coaster of emotions, and most people enjoy the ride.
Your mood tends to set the tone of the room, and when you’re happy, this is a good thing.
When you get in a dark mood, watch out – it’s very hard to get you out of it.
It’s sometimes hard for you to cheer up, and your gloom can be contagious.

Your strength: Your warm heart

Your weakness: Trouble controlling your emotions

Your power color: Black

Your power symbol: Musical note

Your power month: February
