Thankful for MANY things…Having known an Angel on earth…..

Dennis and I have very heavy hearts today after hearing news from our daughter, Chris, that a dear friend has lost her long battle with breast cancer at 38 years old…Sandi Thurman McCool, you were an Angel on earth, sent by God, and now have been called back…God probably needed someone to keep a close eye on all of this group from above…(and you WELL KNOW, our dear Angel, how hard this group is to keep a close eye on )….Sandi and Chris came to visit us in our camper in February, 2008 at Rockport, TX….What fun we all had…what memories.

…..YOU WILL BE MISSED, DEAR FRIEND……Broken heart

  

And so, it puts things into perspective for us…and are thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving Day .  Dennis and I wish you all blessings to you and yours this this day of thanks.   I also want to welcome Jenny Johnson and Lauren Miller aboard the GMC for our Winter trip.  I hope you are of strong constitution, as our toilet issue continues to be a little “sketchy”..but it still WORKS so far.  Something about the waste ball seal (we need a new one???)…sounds like something you’d find in the Arctic Ocean to me.

We  had a little excitement the other night…Lots of red on the radar coming at us…We are on that little blue lake in the center …to the right of the monster storm…just great.

The wind blew lots, and we gave a thought about going to the little block bathroom just outside our door, next to us. But, by the time our thought process was complete, (brain cells are lazy as you get older), the storm was upon us, and we rode it out in the Hiker…It was a little windy (understatement), and rained sideways..but we held firm and lived to be stupid another day.

COULD SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT MAKES THESE HOLES IN THE GROUND AROUND OUR SITE..

OR IF I NEED TO CURTAIL MY WALKS AND CALL THE GAME WARDEN??Surprised smile

We  I am planning a  yummy Thanksgiving dinner for two..I am trying to be traditional, somewhat, without making too much work for my lazy self…

Hey!…I got crockpot chicken (I really wanted turkey thighs, but there were none to be had), stuffing, mashed taters, the stuff to make green bean casserole….oh, yes, and for desert we have some delicious sugar free frosted oatmeal cookies …BOOYA!!!  This oughta be pretty easy…(I guess it’s not really “traditional” home cooked, but it’s how I roll today..slowly…)

Our weather here today is 70 degrees…and Dennis has the toilet on the kitchen floor again..Something about a toilet as a Thanksgiving centerpiece goes against my grain…He discovered he put the seal on upside down last time he worked on it…but…we are still in need of that Arctic seal eventually…..Hopefully “la pooper” will be back in the “throneroom” by dinner time..Fingers crossed

So, on this day of reflection and thanks,  The Cave Dwellers would like to wish everyone a Blessed Thanksgiving..Hug your family tightly, keep them close… and make every darn  damn minute count…Sun

  1. Kind of puts things into perspective, doesn't it? When one so young is taken from us.

    Dinner looks great to me.
    The hole looks a lot like the snake holes we get all over our yard.

  13. Where did you find those cookies? My hubby would die for some of those if I can find them out here.
    38 is so young to die but you're right - the Lord has work for her to do and was missing His daughter.

  14. Sorry for your loss. the holes around your campsite are crawdad holes. They burrow in the ground when the water goes down.
