Now this one will be short as I am in a hurry to make the eleven hour trek to Deltona, Florida where in thirty hours from this post, my two sons, my six grandchildren. my daughter-in-law and several extended family members will be assembling for the Thanksgiving week celebration.

It has been thirteen years since all my family has been able to gather together at my house for this holiday, and only two of my grandchildren were born at the time. It has been eleven years when they have been together at my house for Christmas. We usually go to one of the boys house since, in this way of doing things, parents and grandparents do the travelling. It has not been the other way around in thirty years. This seems to be the case nationwide, if not worldwide.

There is no more over the meadows and through the woods to grandmother's house we go. It is more like, "Down the highway or through the skies to granddaughter's house we go." This make 3 times in a row that Janice and I have travelled to one of the kids house for either Thanksgiving or Christmas and six out of seven. I could complain and say: "This is getting old," but not really. It never gets old seeing your grandkids. It is tiring and when you arrive you have very little in energy to give them, but at least they are happy to see the old folks.

So, for those of you who love to read these rants, you can take a break after you read this. When I get back, I will share some of the good times I had in Florida and maybe not be bitchy about what I returned home to and how things didn't get done while I was gone. That is the plights just about all of us face when returning from vacation. For now, I gotta get out of here!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!


Blogs are about the blogger. It's as if he or she merely toots their own horns about the things they do, say and love.

My life is boring. I read, I watch Glenn Beck and Mark Levin. I listen to Andrew Wilkow. I engage in some conversation with those who are willing to listen (they being masochistic and enjoy killing themselves with my banter).

II plan on just laying out the things that bother me and the things I love. Nothing in-between. I hope you find whatever I put here amusing.
