Thanksgiving In The Joint (part 2)

The Significant Woman’s Event

Thanksgiving 2015

    I went to brunch at 8:30 am. Then layed around and watched football. Then went to dinner at 5:00 pm. I had: fried chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravey, yams, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie w/whiped cream. It was actually pretty darn good! I was thankful. Then I came back, hopped up on … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2015
