    Yo, bizzles!

    Had a good Thanksgiving at the Daughter's Grandparent's house.

    Funny, went out to the garage with her gramps and he showed me a wheelchair they bought for 96 yr old family member.

    Me: "Hey, that's an Invacare Tracer EX-5 Heavy Duty chair, made in 2008" – upon sight. Proceeded to show him things he didn't know about the chair, explained he bought an $800 chair for $29.99

    I'm the man.

    Him: "What's wrong with the brakes on your Jeep?"
    Me: "Hell if I know..."

    Many laughs all around. Good Day. You know what you work with, I guess. He gave me a number to a mechanic that fixes **** at $10/hr so long as you bring the parts. lol. Aint barterin' great?

    Got the parts online today for under $100 when I was quoted almost $500 at a "service center" a few weeks ago.

    Packers season is over, lol. Cowboys may make the playoffs so we can all watch Romo choke again.

  6. RichardHead@NFL NosePickers

    Soooo, I'm looking at the Games we will be watching on Turkey Day--First up Green Bay vs Detroit, This should be THE Game tomorrow. The Pack @ The Lions….Hmmmm, Home field advantage should go to the Lions, BUT…I'm going with THE PACK,'cuz I hate watching my Bro Sir Biddle drinking straight from the Scotch Bottle. Remember,The Lil' Biddles are watching….I got your 6 Bro…
    Next Up….Oakland Raiders vs Dallas Cowboys-just in time for Turkey Dinner. Wait a minute–Oakland has a Football Team???? OK, Even though this is Tazer Warrior Princess's Favorite team..( she WON the punt,pass and kick competition as a young warrior ),and I'll probably get a Spanking with a rolled up Watch Tower Newspaper…( Me Likey ), Sorry Babe…Cowboy's BIG Time on this one.
    Last we go to PeeeeeetsBurgh vs Baltimore. The triptophan will have kicked in by then……Snooooooozer. Baltimore !!

    Well,Yours truly learned a valuable lesson today……DON'T visit WallyWorld the day before Thanksgiving to pick up your last minute items. It was a MADHOUSE……gives a whole new meaning to BAH HUMBUG. Just wanted to give a shout out to my East coast Family ( a nod to KAT, SLT,Mary Shanon, and Ms. Grammar ),stay warm Ladies, throw another log on the fire,Grab a couple Furries,or your favorite lap Dog,or in Truths case–Lap Cat and stay warm. It's gonna hit 54 degrees tomorrow here in Katy,with Sunshine…HA !! I believe JBJ is in Washington with the Kidz and Grandkidz…( You owe me an E-mail BFF ) and hope you all Have a Wonderful Turkey Day. Football, Great Food, Friends and alcohol are planned for tomorrow. Enjoy and be SAFE ALL.

    Tomorrow, when you are serving your family turkey, will you also have some satisfaction knowing that you are giving them the bird?

    Hi all. Today was busy, car dealer, lunch with cousins then visit with Dad. Tomorrow I will be hunkering down, sleeping in and trying to stay warm and dry during the storm.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

    Sometimes you need a crappy team to steamroll to get your mojo back.

    November 26, 2013 at 10:56 am |
    • Weeds

      Does the crappy team you refer to happen to be the Washington Four skins?

      November 26, 2013 at 12:15 pm |

    I'm off tomorrow, so I wanted to wish all my Klatscher friends the happiest of Thanksgivings. Be safe if you're on the road, rails, or airlines.

    Dang, I can't win for losing. I just found out if I smoke Tom Turkey this year, it will cost me $ 3,000.00 more on Obamacare--so I'm gonna FRY his AZZ. Take THAT Obozo. Nah,Nah.

      Just 1 question.
      How were you going to get it lite?

      November 25, 2013 at 1:23 pm |
      • Weeds

        er, i mean lit.

        November 25, 2013 at 1:25 pm |
      • RichardHead

        HMMMM,Good question. Perhaps an Natural Gas enema,or an M80 firecracker left over from July 4th. That should do it.

      • AleeD® from Home Sweet Home on Vacation@Cheech

    Hello Klatschkies! I'm still hanging around, even though my Thanksgiving break has been minimized greatly from what I first thought it was.

    Good morning all, and Happy Thanksgiving week! May we all take some time to reflect on all the blessings in our lives and spend some time with those we love.

    And for you shoppers out there, this is always what comes to my mind when I hear about the day after Thanksgiving. One of my favorite bands...
