Good Moring Everyone. It's 45 degrees here in New York and raining. I hope you all have a wonderful day ;D
I hate dreary days like today but I spent the entire day on the couch with a blasted headache. DH dropped DD off at school and my girlfriend picked her up for me :-))

At least it'll be relatively warm for the parade...the Rockettes won't freeze their legs off this year  ;)

    With the wind and rain here, we sound like we are in some sort of weather-war zone!

    My daughter heads to NYC tomorrow, by bus and train, to spend the holiday with her friend Haley. They are supposed to go watch the Macy's parade. I grew up in NY...first Queens, then LI, and never ever saw the parade in person. So if they actually go, this will be a family first!

    Good year to see the parade...it'll be nice and dry, in the mid 40s :-))) I went one year when my girlfriend, who worked at Macy's, gave DH and myself a pair of tickets to sit on the 34th street bleechers....soggy as anything and the end of the parade route but it was an experience nontheless. I would like to try a "dry" year though ;-p Where in Queens are you from??? I've lived in every borough except the Bronx  :P

    We lived at 34-50 85th Street, Jackson Heights. But we moved to the island as I was going into second grade, so that was a long time ago. I only remember the address because it was pounded into my brain (so I wouldn't get lost). I even remember our phone number! TW9-9508. LOL (the TW is TWining...)

    My parents had a summer home in NH that they bought when I was 11. I knew I liked ocean, lakes, and mountains and needed to get away from metro areas. Took a few moves, but now we have been here for 30 years. I love it.

    Well, I can't say good morning to everyone since it is now 9:42pm Central Time!! Spent the day with Larry and taking care of those pre-Thanksgiving errands and grocery shopping! We had a beautiful sunshiny, cloudless day here in NE Texas with temps in the 70's. The grandkids will be arriving around lunch time tomorrow and I still have a lot to do!! Hope you all have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hey, I need to get out of the Book Corner and Accessories.  I didn't know there was a good morning thread!

    Good Morning!  Having a cup of coffee and trying to catch up, I'm already behind and it's quarter to 7, Eastern Time.

    Good morning to all my Kindle friends! It is sunny and 39 in Alabama this morning. We had rain all day yesterday. I'm a southern girl so I am getting ready to eat my grits. I am at work and reading the boards again.  :o Hope all of you have a good Tuesday.

    Great idea Leslie, enjoy saying good morning to everyone.

    Morning all,

    The rain finally stopped but we had a howler of a storm yesterday! 34 degrees. I have a busy day with grocery shopping and going to see Australia! I wanted to do the shopping yesterday but the rain was too miserable to go outside. Let's hope the shelves are not completely bare today.

    Just saying Hi before get up  and go out to the store.  I was supposed to go yesterday but my computer problems came first.  I have my priorities(and a couple pork chops left)

    There's a lot of frost outside,  The cool temps are making Big Boy an Little Girl very frisky.  They are running about and 'fighting' each other.  

    She has agility and speed.  He has a lot of fat and power.  They play hard until they notice me watching.  Then it's time for me at open the door and tell them good morning.  

    I toss them each a dogie bone and then check on TYPO.  She's taken over the couch where I like to read.  She's all curled up and snoozing.

    Fuzzy is out and about.  I called her but I suspect she is with her 'other' family.  She'll be home soon.

    Now an hour has passed and I am no where closer to the shower and the grocery store.  If I wan food for while I am working, I must go soon before the store fills up with people and runs out of food.

    Good morning everyone, it is 34 here in Alabama this morning but will warm up to a nice 66. I saw the most beautiful sunrise on my drive to work, it was breath taking. I also filled up for 1.77 at the tanks. It will be a slow day here (more time for the boards ;)) and we are hoping to get out of here early. We will be leaving early in the morning going to my sister's for our family Thanksgiving. Off to eat my grits now Betsy.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    Good Morning, all. 44 degrees headed up to 65 today here in Little Rock, although it is slightly overcast right now.

    Filled up my tank yesterday for $1.62/gal.

    Off to bed now, must work tonight. Nighty Night.

    Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!! hehe  It is partly cloudy and a bit cooler this morning. Highs to be in the 60's. Hope the rain doesn't move in until the SIL gets the turkey fried tomorrow! Well, I am going to have to tear myself away with lots of posts left unread. I have way too much left to do before the grandkids arrive and I will never get it done with the computer on.

    Everyone have a wonderful day and I will catch up with you all later in the week!

    Happy Turkey Day Eve.

     Woke up to ice on the ground.  New Puppy slid across the deck I wish I had a camera the look on her face when she couldn't stop.  Gas was between 2.28 and 2.39 for reg the closer you get to Long Island expressway  the more you pay.

    Bye for now
