Days before Thanksgiving and there is no way the sealed, pristine tub of Cool Whip is gonna make it til Thursday. I am thinking about putting some in my coffee. I never eat Cool Whip, except for Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas…on top of the kind of pie I never eat….anyways. It’s Monday. We are going to Caty’s on Thursday and then are doing our own Second Thanksgiving on Friday with all the kids. We have a lot of kids between the two of us. Better get more wine and toilet paper…when I have to go out to replace the Cool Whip. The ninth ring of hell is the Hannaford parking lot this week. No amount of “honeybabydarlinghowyoudoing?” will make it any better.
This week on the blog….I am adding a Throwback Interview for Thursday….I am interviewing people I grew up with because aside from “friending” on facebook and looking at cute pics and private messaging Lisa with “Oh my god, he is still friggin cute!!!” And tirading with her why men sometimes appear to age better than women – not meaning this in a sexist way – but hot-flashes definitely take their toll. Just once I’d like to hear someone from the male persuasion mutter “My God these cramps are killing me…” Anyhow. I digress – so the Throwback Thursday interview….plus I have an Icon Interview (someone from the brook) and I will be bopping by the Daily Grind with the coffee mug of the week – and Weekend Wisdom by Java Joe. Fascinating I know, but if it were 1940, I’d be doing a radio show live from my kitchen and you’d hear me swearing at the dog.
Mark your calendars also for this week…..The Annual Noyes Family 5K is on Thanksgiving and departs from Westbrook High School – you can still register. I think it all starts at 8am. It is a family friendly, wicked fun run/walk with proceeds going to 2 scholarships for Westbrook High Seniors. Have you met the Noyes family? Chances are you have – there are hundreds of them, and they are the most down to earth, gracious and generous people you are going to ever meet. Yes I am partial. They are my non DNA family. And my TYIA girls (and few guys) are there. They are the rock of my life – not the one stuck in my shoe, but the solid rocks of good people.
Take a ride….
With all your holiday shopping turning to screech mode….check out The Lady Stripper on Main Street in Gorham, next to Amato’s. It is the very sweetest, cutes shop of vintage, antique, cottage, nostalgic stuff. It will make you smile. And Lynn the owner is just a beautiful soul, you will leave happier with a little bag of happiness and a little lift in your heart after talking with her for a few minutes. She will be open Friday 10am-5pm.
That’s it. Gotta go pry my slipper from Georgia’s jaws. You got today, you got this week. Be good to you.
