Posted the last one without finishing it because it just dragged on too many days.
So here it is, Thanksgiving Day and I'm off until Monday.  I've been holding out to take any vacation days off because I am still contemplating a trip to Hawaii in January which would entail a week off and other trips I want or need to take.  I have enough hours saved up right now to take about 3-1/2 weeks off.  Likely going to take at least 3 days off during Christmas as well, even if I don't do anything or go anywhere - which I probably won't.

I have no interest in being part of a family Christmas get together that lasts 3 hours or so and sometimes ends in disaster, with at least 2 people who don't get along with anyone in the family save mother and whose interests end - at mother.  Why put myself through the hassle of flying all the way back there, spending all that money for something like that? Yet, I need to get back to Phoenix and visit mom, just not at Christmas.  She's in the middle of trying to find a new house right now so I'm going to save the trip til next month sometime.  Or not, I just don't know yet.

Meanwhile, we have full fledged Thanksgiving dinner going here today with a turkey slow cooking as we speak.  She had it in there early this morning which I thought a bit early even on a slow cook plan.  But, she's a good cook, we'll see where this goes.  Kroger's here didn't have any prime rib roasts on sale.  In Phoenix they have them on sale during Thanksgiving and Christmas week.  I know they'll have them for Christmas.  Such a fine cut of beef.

I'm still seriously interested in making the trip to Indianapolis, but how?  They want so much money for a rather short flight.  Even from Dallas.  All these trips I want to take, all the money they want.  Oh well, pick and choose.

Well, I'm going to go out and piddle with the big 4 wheeler.  Trying to set a goal to get that one done this weekend.  Or at least as much as I can do with what I've got.  If it ends up needing more parts, so beit, but I can at least get the stuff done now that I have the new parts for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
