Thanksgiving Holiday

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Finally Thanksgiving is here and on this tradition deep fried turkey or oven cooked turkey is served but "WHERE IS THE TURKEY"? Here are some funny jokes about it. Let's see if it make you laugh.
Now where is that Turkey?

Two pilgrims go out hunting. One has two blunderbusses.
The second pilgrim asks, 'Why do you have two blunderbusses?'
The first pilgrim explains, 'I usually miss the first time I shoot. By taking two I can shoot again.'
The second pilgrim thinks for a while and then says, 'Why not just take the second one, and only shoot once?'
Six Legged Turkey
An industrious turkey farmer was always experimenting with breeding, his mission was to produce the perfect turkey. His family was fond of the leg portion for dinner and there were never enough legs for everyone.
After many frustrating attempts, the farmer was relating the results of his efforts to his friends at the general store. 'Well I finally did it! I bred a turkey that has six legs!' They all asked the farmer how it tasted.
'I don't know, 'said the farmer, 'I never could catch it!'

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all! Enjoy your turkey dinner...

Drinking ginger tea

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Do you like ginger tea? I do but my husband doesn't. Ginger tea has a pleasant flavor, and it contain a variety of chemical compounds that can reduce fever. In my country ginger tea is so popular especially in a gathering served to the guests. It's also good drinking in the morning. You can make teas with powdered ginger but the fresh root is more strong and effective. It also tastes better. Grate 1 table spoon of ginger, cover it with 1 cup of boiling water, let it steep 10 minutes.

Have you ever experienced when you called a company and came to find out that it’s only answered by a voice activated system? You need to push number one for specific reason of your calling then 2 or three on other options only to realize at the end that there’s not live customer service representative on the other line to answer your question. Of course after doing all this you’ll be frustrated and hang up. What the heck! I don’t really understand that.

This World

Saturday, November 8, 2008

Did you ever notice signs these days? No smoking in this area and people continue to smoke. Pick up after your dog and people don't. It's horrible if you stepped in dog's poop. You feel like throwing out your shoes unfortunately that cost too much to waste. Signs that say NO U TURN. Why not?! Could never understand that one. Then there's a sign before you get to a bridge that says "slippery when wet" well of course it is. Was this sign invented for people with no brains? The newest one I can't stand are painted all across the big buses. Talk about a distraction. Your eyes focused on it as it's moving and you could get into an accident. Anyway, we think back to an old song that seems to cover this blog. Click on the link

The invincible dog

Thursday, November 6, 2008

This is a true story of my husband's invincible dog gone but not forgotten. The way my husband told it I though I was really there. We like to hear this story over and over again.

"When I was about twenty years old I had an invincible dog. By all rights his name is Samson. He was a Doberman lightly mixed with a Collie. Strange combo. Look like a Doberman had a Collie nose. I always tease him by calling him (ugly dog, ugly dog) He would put his head down and try to speak to you as to say knock it off. One day Samson got off his leash went down the road about half a mile. He got in a fight with a golden retriever. I guess the owner of the golden retriever didn't like this much he came out of the garage with a long screw driver stuck it right straight through Samson in one side out the other. Samson came running home smile on his face as usual with the new surprise for me. I couldn't believe the screw driver was in him showing no pain. I went in the house got some hydrogen peroxide dumped it on the towel put it on Samson's wounds and pulled the screw driver out. I have no clue how the screw driver missed all of his vital organs but nothing ever hurt Samson. A couple years went by, Samson got off his leash again. I was calling for him it was almost dark. As I seen him come running out of the field to cross the road a tractor trailer driving slow from the neighbors house hit Samson. He went under the truck and rolled over and over and over again. The truck continued down the road Samson comes running in the driveway limping on one leg with that smile on his face this time I just can't believe it and I laughed because he is not hurt. Samson is not good at staying at home when were gone away. So we took him with us for a boat ride up on a small lake in Upstate New York about forty miles away from our house. We were on the boat and just before sunset a flock of geese flew low above the boat. Samson jumped overboard just as the sun set behind the trees. The waves were quite rough, the noise covered any sound of him splashing, we searched for hours it seem. The next morning we even walked partway around the lake calling for him but no Samson. We figured the waves so high he must have drowned. We thought this was the end of mighty Samson. Two months later we had a lightning storm at our house and made me think of Samson. The same exact moment that his face I pictured in my mind there was a big boom at the door that made me jump. I got up to see Samson's face and his paws on the door with that same darn smile. I opened the door he looked like he been through hell and he really enjoyed a big hug from me. Samson lived to be thirteen years old. One morning I got up and Samson passed away quietly in his sleep. PS. One of Samson's other incredible feats were bringing home three little baby bunnies one at a time carrying them at the edge of his teeth not to hurt them but to bring them to us as to say they need help. Incredible!"

get ready.. set... go...

We were digging out on Jarred's snow suit. It's so cold outdoors but Maddy and Jarred would like to play so we get them ready to go out and play. We found his snow suit and he put it on. It just barely fit him and the length is still okay covering his feet. As soon as he was done dressing up he took daddy's hand pulling him to go to the door. Jarred ride on the little kids four wheeler and Maddy took the bigger one. Jarred is so confident riding the four wheeler.

Best Little Zoo: our favorite place no more

Grandpa Bob's petting zoo. It's so sad Grandpa Bob's retiring so they're auctioning off all the animals big and small along with the cages to go with the animals. It was amazing how many people showed up.

Grandpa Bobs petting zoo had all your local type animals along with quite a few exotic animals, not really native to New York are chinchillas. They're like a mouse kangaroo and bunny combo very fast very bouncy and very cute so that's what we focused on we had these many years ago. A virus came through and devastated our chinchillas.

It happened in three quarters of the United States thank goodness chinchillas are good at re-populating because we love them so. Our little doggie is jealous. She puts her nose to the cage and the chinchilla pokes her nose it's so funny. We can't figure out whether she wants to play with them or eat them. She could never catch them if they got out. If they get cornered and highly threatened they would turn and spray pee in the predators face they also can put their little paws together and punch straight forward with their claws extended to try to defend off their attacker. All in all chinchillas are fun little animals.
