Tomorrow I will be in our local Thanksgiving Parade. We decorate my buddy's utility trailer, and collect non-perishable food items in boxes during the parade for the local food pantry.

After the parade, they have a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Village Hall, where you can buy hot chocolate, food, holiday gifts, and of course booze for the adult crowd.......

I dunno, the most fun thing I can think of is completing my short story..."A Man and His Ball". Of course a shot or two of JD being consumed while writing makes the story really funny....

Rough draft for term paper is due 11:55 p.m. Sunday. But being that I'm 62 years old, I don't take it too seriously. It's an art history class, wrote some b.s. this morning, will add some quotes and photos and let it go at that.

Tonight meeting the gang for College Night at the Museum. Need to take another look at one of the paintings, what is that blurry thing in the middle left side? Free night for students but the wine is $5.00/glass.

Will take care of the after effects at the coffee shop on Saturday.

Today I'm off to a sawmill
Tomorrow I'll hunker down at a Barnes and Noble while DW is getting a facial
Sunday I'll watch the Bears, do some woodworking, and fertilize the lawn weather permitting
Plus I have to replace the gas line on my gas grill that a critter chewed through

Pretty much what we do every day. A little surfing, a little home improvement, a few chores, some reading & computer work, perhaps a little napping. Maybe some other activities while our kid is at a women's-only taekwondo clinic and we grownups are home alone. A neighborhood walk after dinner.

Laying low until Monday after rush hour, when it's safe to go out in public again.

We happen to have a really fun weekend planned out. We traveled to DH's hometown to take in a concert and a football game. We are in Kansas City, MO. Last night we went to see Cold Play at the Sprint Center (awesome show!) and then went out dancing in the Power and Light district (Power & Light District). Who knew KC's downtown could be so cool? What a blast!

Tonight we will be playing poker at SIL's house and then going out to play pool at a local bar. Tomorrow just chilling out with family then out again in the eve to a nightclub for more dancing. Sunday we have tix to see the Chiefs on the 50 yd line...not expecting to win but looking forward to tailgaiting!

Back home Monday a.m. and back to w*rk!

Tomorrow, we are meeting some friends and enjoying some activities at our local college, WVU, for Mountaineer Week. We are going to an Arts and Craft show, having dinner (ghost stories are supposed to be told during dinner) and then going to the Fiddler Contest. We have tickets to the WVU basketball game, but decided not to go since DH wanted to go to Fiddler's Contest. Sunday, we are early morning ushers at church and then I will be helping to cook and clean up for the Thanksgiving dinner at our church. Our college ministry is doing the dinner, but they needed help.

Same thing I do every weekend: attempt to recover from yet another soul-sucking work week.

I'll be taking a Hapkido class tonight and a Tae Kwon Do class tomorrow morning. Sunday I'll watch the Eagles/Bengals game. I need to make a deposit at the bank. I really should get new loafers for work, since the old ones have a bunch of holes in them. If I'm really ambitious, I might consider thinking about getting a new washer/dryer, since the dryer is nearly dead. I'll watch some movies and a couple of this week's TV shows.

Pretty much as little as possible.

I'm teaching a bunch of geezers to mix concrete and make decorative molds. Also, being in Vegas, the knowledge of concrete does come in handy for "extra work"
