As I write this, it is in the wee, small hours of the morning of Thanksgiving Day. I just want to take a moment and wish everybody a Happy Thanksgiving! May your feast be bountiful, may your company be merry, and may your turkey never be dry!

Future Dachshund rancher, Nick Grove, got a male Dachshund puppy this past weekend. Nick says the puppy is only six weeks old and he named him "Verner" ("Vern" for short). Vern's older sister/future wife, Cleoie, greeted the puppy into the family by peeing on him.
Now having a male and female Dachshund, Nick is confident he'll have his coat of wiener dogs in a couple of years!

For some reason, I have had a salty taste in my mouth the past twenty-four hours or so. I hope this doesn't mean I'm turning into a pillar of salt.
Yesterday was Christy's birthday. Happy belated birthday, Christy! I'm really sorry I didn't get you anything. I promise to make up for it on Christmas!
Ever since I saw it a couple weekends ago, I have been thinking on and off about The Office. It's turning out to be one of those shows where the more I think about it, the more I enjoy it. It really was a brilliant show and I need to watch it again.
I saw Elf a couple of Sundays back and it was lightweight fun. After reading some of the good reviews it received, I think I went into the movie with slightly raised expectations that didn't really pay off. However, any film that features Ed Asner and Bob Newhart is going to get my approval. It was also a pleasant surprise to see Andy Richter and Amy Sedaris among the cast as well. Plus Will Farrell is a likable lead so I give Elf an A for good casting and a B for all the rest.
The balcony is closed.

Christy returned safely from Winnipeg Friday night. Christy describes her trip as being "the longest, most boring week of my life". As for Winnipeg itself, Christy says "Winnipeg is such a lovely city.....especially if you have a love of industrial cities where every building is small and square. And people talk really, really fast and move really, really slow." Consult your travel agent today!
Welcome home, Christy!
As for me, I have been watching The Office on dvd and I think it's a pretty entertaining sitcom. It made me chuckle, it did (I'm trying to sound British)! Thanks to the local King of Television, Nick Grove, for letting me borrow it!
