Overheard After Dinner Last Night
Grandpa: What were those crunchy things in the cranberry salad you made?

Grandma: You mean the walnuts?

Grandpa: You put Walnuts in the Cranberry salad?

Grandma: Yes, dear, for 30 years now.

Grandpa: Hmm, I guess I never noticed because I always had my teeth in before.

Yes, for some reason, Grandpa didn't put his teeth in yesterday. Which made him talk kind of funny.

Our youngest son asked me if Grandpa was drunk.

No, I told him, he just isn't wearing his teeth.

Really? Cool! he responded.

Any funny stories come from your dinner table last night?

No funny stories here. Donnie's family is not funny.
Trinity did do something funny, though. We were playing Quelf and she wanted to play, so I make things up for her to do. I think she figured it out because as I was reading her card she started saying what I was saying really really fast, like she was reading it herself and I was annoying her. Then she turned so I couldn't see the card and just kept "reading" but since she didn't have me to copy, she had to make it up, and since she was making it up, she didn't want us to know, so she spoke in gibberish. We were cracking up!

About the funniest thing from yesterday was the fact that I had to pull the stupid bird out of oven, becasue U forgot to stuff it. Oh, and the cranberry brine I used on the turkey? Turned the entire thing a vibrant fuschia.

That was a treat.

That IS funny! I don't have a funny story at the dinner table, but when I woke up my 8 year old asking her if she wanted to come cheer for me while I ran, she replied, "Moooooooooom... please don't ask me questions in the morning. I'm a night person."

(She really does take after me!)

I don't know how funny it is...
But we asked the kids what they were thankful for... I got the normal family, god, food, and CORN... just plain ol corn. It's his favorite food ya know.

We also had to fight the family cat off the table because it wanted turkey.

Cute stories on your side!

That is just great! SO funny that he hadn't noticed them in 30 years, and even funnier that he didn't have his teeth in! I am sure something funny happened, but I am so brain dead, that I can't remember!

That is cute. The only thing weird on my side is that we were all making fun of each other's boyfriends back when we were single. Looking back, we all wondered why we were with the dorks. LOL.

Hope you and your family are safely away from the wildfires!
