The remainder of the meat parts and carcass went into the stockpot with a few sorry looking carrots, some celery tops with leaves, and a quartered onion with skin on, along with as much water that would fit.

I also made gravy from the drippings. Good gravy, it's wonderful!
You better "bank" some of that gravy for Thanksgiving, just in case!

I have a bump behind my heel. I wrap it all of the time. Anyone else ever experience this?
Sounds like a bone heel spur.

Better slip in a couple pieces of that breast meat, too. You know, in case the tofurkey shows up for dinner again.

I keep opening up the door to the garage, just to look at it. Except for the big items (a small dresser, piece of exercise equipment, office chair, two 2-drawer file cabinets), everything has been carted off to Salvation Army! Himself knows how to get the back off the base of the chair, so we'll probably disappear that too, along with a few more boxes of stuff I'm trying to clean from the basement. I'm enjoying all of this "tidy" so much I might go on a real cleaning binge to purgePURGEpurge more stuff.

I'm debating going back to the ER (anyone who knows me here knows I must be bad off if I am even considering going there ). The pain from my kidney infection just shot back up and I am reacting to the antibiotic (which there was a chance I would).

Positive thoughts and prayers please for my decision. TB is out at his brother's, is not reachable at the moment and won't be back for awhile. Kay is at her own home for the weekend so I would have to get myself there and make the decision myself.

I wrap it everyday. Someone else mentioned it may be the achiles tendon. I may just have to break down & get it checked out one of these days.

Thanks Addie!
