On Friday I went to visit Daughter at college. Her birthday is next week, so this quick weekend visit was the only available free time.
Took Daughter and B. (her boyfriend) out for dinner. We each licked our plates, but still decided on dessert. Daughter and B. both decided to get this huge ice cream sundae. The waitress suggested that one would feed all three of us. But the starving college students felt a competition coming on and they each ordered one.
Yup , each one was that big. The following pictures tell the rest of the story.
The waitress stopped by and exclaimed, “I have never seen a person finish one of those, and now I get two in the same night!”
Yup – that’s the type of recognition to strive for!!!
BTW – No college students were harmed in the competition, but I think they were indeed full!
This really happened.
Neighbors called police after hearing a loud disturbance outside. When the police arrived, tempers had fizzled and a truce seemed in place. The neighborhood was once again calm and quiet.
Apparently the riot occurred during a discussion of presidential pardons. Distant relatives of Cobbler, recently pardoned by President Obama, were upset over gobblings. One turkey said that there should not be any individual pardons unless all are pardoned.
Another turkey exclaimed that Cobbler was a chicken for not offering up his life to serve the cause. And with those defaming words, the riot started.
A somber feeling came over the rafter when news was received of Cobbler’s “death by oven.”
Some turkeys thought Cobbler was a martyr and was at his finest when served. Relatives were despondent over his death and still cringing when Cobbler was called a chicken.
All I can say after this minor riot was that I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I would like to publicly thank the following for giving their lives to the occasion.
- Mr. Potato Head and family (twice-baked potatoes)
Jolly Green Giant and family (green beans)
Partridge Farm and family (stuffing)
Dole and Berry families (fruit salad)
RIT (rest in tummy) Cobbler.
This past weekend I went to visit Daughter in college town, USA. I wanted to grab her broken laptop and see if I can get it fixed for the Thanksgiving visit. When I asked Daughter if she was free this past weekend, she said “Sure, bring food.”
I did a bit of shopping at Costco and grabbed stuff she could freeze or was just in boxes or cans. One can never have too much Mac n Cheese. I really wish I would have thought to take a picture of the car loaded up with tons of stuff for her, but I forgot.
Daughter’s face when she spotted all the goodies I brought her!!
And then I stopped at a local take-n-bake lasagna shop and grabbed a pan of vegetarian lasagna and also a pan of incredible tiramisu. While visiting her, we also picked up salad makings and garlic bread. Thus she had a little pasta party tonight with some friends.
One of the things I usually do when I visit Daughter is to take her and a friend out for a meal. This time I was lucky to meet two of her dear friends. Friend N went to dinner with us (I forgot a picture) and friend B had breakfast with us. Yeah — I remembered to take a pix!
Breakfast with Daughter and friend, B.
We got stuck in a little hail storm Saturday morning. Brrrrr….. no coats on at the time. Fun!! The drive home was uneventful – thank goodness!
When I got home,the cats didn’t greet me at the door, but they soon appeared and were fine. I think they were sending a message of displeasure that I left them alone for 30 hours. And to show their foul sentiment, someone (not me) vomited in the big water bowl. I am sure all the kitties were relieved that there were three water bowls so no one went thirsty.
Back to the grindstone on Monday! Have a good week!
