well, everybody here had a nice Thanksgivin'. my Mom and the Dad went to Uncle Glenn and Aunt Barbara's house. there were twelve people for dinner, mostly aunt Barbara's peeps. her sister Julie from Baltimore brought their dog, Texer, who's about 15 pounds. my aunt and uncles dog, Elmer, is ninety pounds. my Mom said it was so funny 'cause the two dogs were rasslin' and rolling around and jumpin' and bitin' and growling, but all in fun. then they'd get all tired and collapse and rest, then do it again. after dinner, Julie was pettin' Texer on the head and found two ticks over his eye, all dug in and suckin' his blood. ooooh that sounds hideous. but Julie is a doctor and got them out and apparently he'll be fine. i'm glad i didn't have to see that! they came home with leftovers that i didn't care for, but just as we predicted, my Mom fixed me cod, so the day was saved!
