Post Turkey Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. Zeus and I had this Thanksgiving off. We are on the Christmas round this year so we spent yesterday working around the compound, putting up tree wraps on the young apple trees, getting the house ready for #1 son and family to arrive today.
I made chili and we watched the movie Apollo 13 with Tom Hanks. Zeus reminded me that after the first mission when the first pictures of our beautiful planet were sent back to Earth it was hoped that we, as a species, would see how beautiful the planet was and take better care of it.
It was a nice thought. I think we have very short
It is probably our last warmish day today. Zeus is off playing golf with his buddies. The weather map shows winter like weather arriving this weekend from the north and west. I guess I'm ready for it.
#2 son called from Boston while we were watching the Packers beat the Lions. He works for New Balance a American based company that provides all their employees a turkey for Thanksgiving. Not only do they make great shoes, I love mine, but they seem to have some old fashion ideals of taking care of their employees. Here's a shout out for them!
#3 daughter and daughter are celebrating the holiday with good friends and their family.
I'm off to finish getting ready for company. Going to make some gingerbread, it makes the house smell great not to mention it's good to eat.
