Yesterdays T-day lunch was cotto salami sammiches on rye bread with sweet/hot mustard, pickles,
olives, and giardinera.

Today my daughter and her largish clan are coming. So far there is: a pumpkin pie, a cloud top
cherry pie, a dozen deviled eggs, a very large pan of cornbread dressing with lots of sage and
dotted with butter, baked beans slow cooking in the oven, whole kernel corn sitting in the pot on
the stove, and a largish spiral sliced ham waiting for the oven.

Miz Anne is vacuuming the house rather quickly, we just got the kitchen cleaned up, the cars are in
the new garage (making it look like we're not at home) with the door closed, and the leaves are
swept off the walks.

Neither of us slept well last night, awaiting the arrival of our chicks and in anticipation of
playing with the greatgranddaughter. Bet we sleep well tonight though.

Do love that family of ours.  LIfe is good.

George, Miz Anne, and Sleepy Dawg - hoping everyone had an excellent holiday.
