Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.

Thanksgiving was different this year for us. Since Spouse & I have been together (over 13 years) this is the 1st Thanksgiving that his sister (his favorite sibling) and her husband and children were not with us. They went to NC to be with her husbands' family. So it was a smaller, more quiet holiday for us, but it was still very enjoyable. Spouse's mom, brother, and sister-in-law came and we had a delicious meal and 'family time'. Spouse's lemon-herb roasted turkey was wonderful, as usual, and our side dishes included sweet potato shuffle and Paula Deen's corn casserole. We purposely made too much so we'd have lots of left overs. Tomorrow we're having some friends over for Thanksgiving left over dinner.


I'm just CRAZY for this video! Check it out - it is just one guy, using technology to 'clone' himself. Some people are so creative...

Do you ever feel like you blend into the scenery? Can't seem to get noticed in a crowd? Then get yourself one of these scarves:
A friend sent me this photo and it cracked me up!

Can I say just how much I CAN'T STAND Taylor Swift?

There was no Black Friday shopping for us today. We had no interest in being out in those crowded stores, risking getting trampled to death over a bargain.

Another friend sent me this photo, which I found to be pretty clever. Check out the location of the door knob.


Have a great weekend!

Seven people, two six packs of ale, and six bottles of wine. To say we weren't well lubricated for social interaction would be a lie.

So glad you all had a good time too.

I don't dislike Taylor Swift, nor do I understand the hysteria about her.
Maybe it's because she seems like the anti-Miley?

For us, rather than do Black Friday, which we've never done, we went on a 5.5 mile river walk in Columbia! Better than fighting the crowds any day!

Today's pictures are great. I can't decide which I like better, the scarves or the door handle. Maybe I'm bi?

Love the door handle, too! I can't decide about Taylor Swift, but then I'm not her demographic for sure.
