Absolutely fantastic! Lisa out did herself. Best Thanksgiving meal in years.
Ally helped with the pumpkin and apple pies the night before.
I over ate. As was my intention. Weighed in heavily on the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie.
Even Jake had a good time! We fed him bread and turkey from the table. Jake is a beggar. He knows how to get what he wants.
I had not seen Jake in a while. When I first entered and sat down, he jumped in my lap and started licking my face. Jake is little more than 3 years old. It took two years for him to like me. I was the enemy when I entered the house before.
My bloated stomach and I went home early. Dinner was at one. Syracuse was playing Connecticut in basketball at 3:30.
Great game! First top shelf opponent Syracuse has played this season. Connecticut ranked #18. Syracuse unranked. Connecticut a 10 point favorite. Syracuse won 79-76.
Syracuse was down 10 in the first half. Up 10 in the second half. Both quality teams.
Syracuse has four shooters. Each can shoot 3s. We could use a real big man.
I was inspired by the game.
Syracuse plays Texas Tech in the finals of the tournament this afternoon. Three o’clock my time on ESPN. Texas Tech ranked. Texas Tech beat ranked Gonzaga by 1 point yesterday.
Should be an excellent game!
Never had dinner. Took my heavy belly to bed and fell asleep early.
My KONK Life column this week is Muslim Refugees…..No. Published in E-Blast this morning. Also linked to my Key West Lou website this morning.
Could be controversial. I expected it to be.
All comments thus far agree with me. One thanked me for having the courage to write the article. I never considered courage when I decided on the topic. The issue a current one. It was not being discussed intelligently. My intent was to open the door to unspoken considerations.
A place to be this week is the Casa Marina beach.The International Sand Art Competition. Six contestants. From as far as Spain and Holland. The art structures works in progress. Worked on daily through Saturday. Sunday the winner will be announced.
I have a doctor visit at 11. All I seem to do is visit doctors. Not complaining. I will do the necessary. Health not to be screwed with at 80.
Enjoy your day!
