Thursday Night Mini Thoughts

– So just because it’s Thanksgiving does NOT mean I don’t have some thoughts.
– Today of all Thursdays I have a special assortment of ‘Mini Thoughts’.
– Most of them involve food.
– Did you expect anything different on this mother of all food days ?
– This morning we went to see “Old Dogs” at a local area movie theatre.
– All of the critics were right – this was one stinker of a movie.
– But I did laugh quite a bit all throughout the flick.
– It won’t win any Oscars, but it was still funny.
– Thanksgiving Dinner was served promptly at 3 PM Central Standard Time.
– It included Honey Ham, Cheesy Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole …
– … Broccoli & Cheese Casserole, Spinach, Brussel Sprouts, Croissant Rolls …
– And last but definitely not least – Pumpkin Pie with Cool Whip.
– Our Thanksgiving meal certainly lived up to its reputation.
– I won’t be eating like this again anytime soon.
– Tomorrow is Black Friday – the wildest and craziest shopping day of the year.
– I bet that shoppers are already camped out in the Best Buy parking lot.
– Let the maniacal stampedes begin at 4 AM !
– I’ll be sleeping in as the mass chaos commences at the shopping meccas.
– Later on in the morning we may go for a round of miniature golf.
– I need to redeem myself from what happened last year.
– I just learned that Fuddruckers is on the agenda for Lunch tomorrow.
– I’m a P.C., and Fuddruckers was my idea !
– After Lunch I’ll be packing and getting ready for the return trip back home.
– I’ll begin my long road trip home bright and early on Saturday morning.
– I’ll make it as far as Marianna Florida after about 13½-hours of driving.
– On Sunday I’ll drive the remaining 9 hours or so back to Homestead.
– After that it’s back to work on Monday the 30TH of November.
– I have no further vacations planned until the middle of Feb. (my next cruise).
– ‘Saturday Night Retro’ will be presented on Sunday night after I return home.
– No new blog will be posted on Saturday night.
– Need your Disco fix for this week ?
– Well then stick around because I’ll have that for you tomorrow afternoon.
– Until then have a peaceful and quiet remainder to your Thanksgiving.

Food Philosophy

The Fortune Cookie Message Of The Week Club

YESTERDAY (Wednesday) for Lunch me and my brother and my sister-in-law ate at their favourite workplace Chinese Restaurant in the neighbourhood – a nice joint in far north Dallas called ‘Great China’ (see reviews on Yahoo !).

The food was delicious, and the restaurant itself was quite a bit upscale compared to what I’m used to at my favourite Chinese Restaurant joints back home. The customer service was outstanding, but that seems to be my general experience at most Chinese Restaurants.


I nabbed all three of our great fortune cookie messages, so here they are:

– ‘Now is the time for peace in your life. Go along with other’s ideas.’

– ‘A new relationship is about to blossom. You will be blessed.’

– ‘Approach all areas of life with a bold enthusiasm this year.’
