Well I had plans for Pirate and myself to go to my daughter's home. That plan has flown right out the window. We I have a really bad head and chest cold, and Pirate has the flu. No Thanksgiving for the two of us this year. Oh well, there is always Christmas dinner.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Pirate and myself spent the whole day in bed. We are both so sick. I think he is sicker than me though. I can honestly say, this has not been my best holiday.

Thank you so much Dawg and TL. I can't believe the crap that is coming from my lungs.

I need a shower so badly. My hair is so dirty. And my skin feels like it wants to crawl off me. But the last thing I need is to get chilled when I get out of there. I could push up the temperature, but Pirate has a fever and the extra heat would make him even more miserable. So it can wait another day. Back to bed to sleep some more.

Trying to work up the energy to clean up the kitchen from yesterday's last minute cooking. I suppose closing my laptop and walking away would be a good place to start.

If you wait long enough that magical Cleaning Genie (The dog) will show up and take care of those pesky dishes for you.

Be strong now.You have the force behind you.

Stay in you jammies like the rest of us and everything will be just fine.

Well I'm still here, but you've given me an idea, Munky. I'm still in my jammies and plan to stay that way, and don't have a furry cleaning genie.... but I think I'll wait until wine thirty (which may be soon ), and let that and some Christmas music help me with the clean up.

Ok, Trub is on his way.Runnin'.Look for the Golden Retriever with shiny hair.
BIG GRIN (I was naughtyyy look in his eyes) Chocolate face.He will take care of it for you.

He had his Thanksgiving steal last night.He helped himself to a few bites before he got caught of a chocolate pie that I had made.

That boy is now on one high sugar rush.

I managed to find a way of donating without strings, i.e. getting lots of follow up mail with never ending donation pleas. (I feel sure I am not the only one who is put off donating by this).

I really just wanted to make a donation to Crisis for a homeless person to have a xmas meal....something I did last year but was not prepared for the constant donation pleas that then ensued and put me off.

There was nothing indicating how I could get round this dilemma but I phoned them and learnt that I could donate anonymously over the phone (their advert does not say this, obviously)!

I also did the same to Medicines sans Frontieres - whose advert on donations only offered a regular monthly payment. Again, I phoned them and discovered I could pay a one off donation anonymously over the phone with my VISA card.

Perhaps this info will be useful to others.
