Thanksgiving 2008

The things that happen when family are around. How is your Job Jason (my brother-in-law)? I got laid off two weeks ago. I am thinking about moving in with you. Come one, come all we are having a ball. I really love my Jason. He is a great guy, and we all get along great. He has lived with us before, and we had no issues at all. He is contemplating his future, and we will support him all the way. He might go back to school, join the air force, or get a job with KC here in Corinth. He is a phenomenal engineer and KC would love to have him.

On another note, we are expecting. Oh not us. Jason's dog Daphne is expecting puppies around Christmas. It is funny because my Father-in-law does not want a dog at all. He is about to be raising puppies. Ha.

Smoked Turkey went well, but it was a little dry. We finished it about 5 hours before we ate, so to keep it warm we put it in the oven on about 180. It was still good, but not as good as I wanted it to be. Let me say the smoked sausage and hot dogs were outstanding. I love my new smoker. I am about to go buy a deep fryer next. My back door grilling system will be complete. I love to cook. Everything esle was really good, but we could have feed 50 homeless people. We had a lot of food.

Tomorrow 32nd Annual Thomas Breakfast. My family is actually going this year. We have not gone in the last couple of years because of family issues. I am glad we are all going again.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving this year and remember to be thankful for your Lord Jesus Christ who makes all of this possible.

Smoking Turkey

Ok. I feel like a real idiot. I have been busy, but I really just could not figure out how to log back in to my account to post on my blog. I kept entering the wrong email, and then it asked me to start a new blog. I was like I don't want to do that I can't even update the one I got.

The reason I am up right now is that I am smoking a turkey all night. I might try to sleep later, but right now I am having so much fun.

School and Soccer are going well. My soccer team is learning how to play, and we are getting better. I am excited about how we will do the rest of the year. I am also looking forward to a couple of teams that beat us earlier this year. I think we will shock them later this year. It is going to be a fun couple of weeks. We finally got some time off from school. Our first day off since Labor Day. I miss NC. On a similiar note, UNCG's mens team won the Southern conference tournament. They were the 7th seed. They beat Duke last Friday and beat Loyola, MD on tonight to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament. It is very exciting for the guys. They have had a tough year, but it has all come together for them now. Keep it up Spartans.

After That...

I had a inter squad scrimmage today. It was great. One team scored 3 goals and the other team had a bunch of chances. We are really playing well. We need to do well against Oxford Tuesday. That will really tell us where we stand.

After that we drove to Memphis for my only living grandparents 79 birthday. She had a great day. It was neat to see her so happy today. She gets lonely in her nursing home. Unfortunately, that is the best that can be done for her.

After that we went to my sister's house and had a surprise birthday for another one of my sisters. We had Lasagna. It was so good. My family is great and it was good to see everyone. The Birthday girl always gets a call from me a month before her birthday. Years ago, I called her exactly one month before her actual birthday. So now I always try to do that. It is funny.

After that we drove home.

How to build a champion....

I know how, but I have to make kids want to be champions. I am not so sure we want to be champions. We just want to go through the motions. We won our first game 6-0. I thought this is great, now they will truly believe in me when I tell them something. Wrong Mister!!! I had 11 players out yesterday and 14 today. I mean come on. What gives? I guess I will get their attention another way. Sounds like bench time for some of these girls.

I guess we will see in 4 years....

I never thought I would see it, but we have an African-American for president. I hope he does well, and I hope that nothing bad happens. If something bad does happen, this country could be turned upside down. 98% of African-Americans voted for Obama. I wish that it would have been more about experience than race. I guess we will see how this country is in 4 years. It probably means more taxes for me and more money for people who do not work at all.

We won our soccer game last night 6-0. We played a team that was not that good, but we definitely looked good.

We won State for Cross Country yesterday. We won both the girls and boys. It was probably the best trip I have ever been on with a team. The time with them was awesome. I am so glad be home now. I will try to blog more later. I got to run.
