Quote To Remember: Thanksgiving, man.  Not a good day to be my pants.  ~Kevin James

Welcome To The Celebration

The time to celebrate has arrived and we did it in our traditional way, a feast at the Old Ranch Country Club followed by dessert with our son Joe at his home with his beautiful family!

We were saddened that Pete & Lisa could not make the celebration because of the severe rain storm in the San Diego area had the freeway backed up several hours so when they called, we suggested they stay home.

Funny Story Time! - So, Iris decided to go to New York and see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade leaving Will behind.

Thanksgiving Eve, Will began to miss he so he looked at his watch and thought "Hey, it's only 10:00 PM, I think I will call her!"

He called her, forgetting of the three hour time difference, it is 1:00 AM in New York!

Iris, being anxious to see the parade, called the front desk earlier in the evening and asked for a wake up call at 6:00 AM.

The phone rings, at 1:00 AM, and Iris picks up the phone and hangs it up (thinking it was the wake-up call).

Into the shower she goes, get's all ready to watch the parade and finally sits down before leaving the room.

She glances at the clock and it is only 2:30 AM.

She wondered who made the wake up call five hours early!!

Thanksgiving Divorce

A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this,"

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way."
