Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.

Regrets of the past and fear of the future eclipse the of the present.

How about that?  No more Twinkies.  Can you believe it?  I never got to eat a deep fried Twinkie.  They say they were good eating.   My problem is when I start thinking about deep fried I think of a dill pickle and I haven’t had one of those for a while.  The doctor claims they are salty.

I hope you had a thankful Thanksgiving.  I read a question the other day that gave me some thought.  The question asked how many M&Ms would you eat if you thought of something you were thankful for with each M&M?  I expect most of us would have a fair size bag of M&Ms to do this.

Our family for years would get together for Thanksgiving; now we just celebrate with our own little family.  As I write, I think we’re going to have a dinner because I’m kind of sure  I heard a turkey gobbling in our refrigerator a few days ago.

I also remember Thanksgiving was the time of year when we butchered our hogs.  Plenty of help around.  It was also another treat with a good mess of liver and onions.  It’s called eating high on the hog.

I forgot something when I was writing about Twinkies.  You twinkie eaters have heart.  I read where probably some company will take over and you’ll still be able to buy Twinkies.
