[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:41:42 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:41:44 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:41:46 PM EST] <Derynifank> HiKK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:41:48 PM EST] <KK> Hi, guys, sorry I'm late.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:41:50 PM EST] <bynw> now you have snow with gargoyles jerusha
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:41:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> hi KK!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:42:02 PM EST] <bynw> hi KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:42:03 PM EST] <Evie> hi
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:42:12 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep. I made little hats for them
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:42:26 PM EST] <The_Bee> Are your plans set for Thanksgiving, KK?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:42:45 PM EST] <Shiral> Hi KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:42:51 PM EST] <KK> We had guessts drop in for tea, so I couldn't get away immediately.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:43:02 PM EST] <jerusha> Tea and guests are good
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:43:05 PM EST] <DesertRose> Understandable. It's the holidays. Tis the season for visiting. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:43:08 PM EST] <KK> Thanksgiving at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel, as per usual.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:43:33 PM EST] <jerusha> Chicken cordon blue for us
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:44:00 PM EST] <Shiral> Tomorrow will be my major grocery trip for T-Day
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:44:17 PM EST] <The_Bee> We have Thanksgiving dinner at my church, but the weather forecast is cold and wwwwwwindy. not sure I want to ride my bike there.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:44:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> We're doing ham for Thanksgiving because we're not big turkey fans in my immediate family.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:44:45 PM EST] <jerusha> I only fix turkey at Christmas
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:44:48 PM EST] <DesertRose> If we were going to Charleston for the extended-family do, there'd be turkey.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:45:20 PM EST] <DesertRose> Christmas dinner will probably be beef of some sort, likely steak because I don't think Mom wants to fool with the standing rib roast again, yummy as it was.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:45:36 PM EST] <KK> brb
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:46:24 PM EST] <DesertRose> Ham, green beans, possibly baked sweet potatoes, possibly salad, certainly cornbread dressing because I'm going to annoy my mom about it if she doesn't make it, LOL, and it's looking like brownies for dessert.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:46:54 PM EST] <jerusha> turkey, stuffing, cauliflower almandine, chocolate cheesecake
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:03 PM EST] <Derynifank> Sounds good DR
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:23 PM EST] <Evie> There's no telling what we'll have, since my Mom isn't very traditional with her Thanksgiving meal, so we might have turkey or ham, but also we could have pancit or fried rice along with whatever other side dishes she makes.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:24 PM EST] <Shiral> Turkey, stuffing, gravy, roast sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Thanks, Derynifank! jerusha, your menu sounds good too!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:43 PM EST] <Shiral> Plus green veggie, and rolls, and drinks
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:55 PM EST] <jerusha> I should say chocolate amaretto cheesecake
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:47:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh, heck, I didn't even think about cranberry sauce, but I'm not sure it goes too well with ham anyway.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:04 PM EST] <Evie> DH and I are bringing the pumpkin pie and maybe one or two other things, depending on what I have time to cook tomorrow, since we have other plans on Tuesday night, and we are doing our Thanksgiving on Wednesday evening because of DS' work schedule
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:08 PM EST] <KK> back
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:14 PM EST] <DesertRose> WB, KK. :)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:22 PM EST] <jerusha> WB KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:24 PM EST] <Derynifank> We order the turkey dinner, then eat at my daughters in laws bcause she has a bigger dining room
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:32 PM EST] <jerusha> It still sounds good, Evie
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:53 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hey, nothing wrong with pancit for Thanksgiving. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:48:55 PM EST] * bynw is just going to the in-laws like always but it's all good and then back to work on friday, technology never sleeps
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:49:25 PM EST] <Shiral> My sister is in charge of dessert
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:49:47 PM EST] <Shiral> DR, Cranberries and ham are actually a very good combination
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:49:58 PM EST] <KK> Cauliflower almondine sounds amazing.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:00 PM EST] <jerusha> Not big on cranberries
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:11 PM EST] <jerusha> And it is so easy, KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> When we still lived in Charleston, I was in charge of the sweet potato casserole and the pumpkin pie; the casserole I just seem to make well, and the pumpkin pie was because my aunt who is otherwise the Family Queen of Desserts doesn't like making pumpkin pie because she can't do anything interesting to decorate it.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:33 PM EST] <KK> Fresh cranberries are a species apart from what comes in a can--and super easy to make.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:36 PM EST] <Shiral> It's easy not to be big on cranberries? =o)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:39 PM EST] <jerusha> Cauliflower, a light cheese sauce, and roasted almond slices
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:42 PM EST] <DesertRose> She makes desserts that look too good to eat and taste at least as good as they look!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:50:56 PM EST] <Shiral> I agree. Thanksgiving is just NOT complete without the cranberries for me
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:51:09 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oh, yes, my mother started making cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries a few years ago and now nobody will eat the canned stuff. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:51:40 PM EST] <Evie> DH makes a really good cranberry-orange sauce
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:51:43 PM EST] <Shiral> My earliest Thanksgiving job was to grind up cranberries and an orange for the cranberry orange relish
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:51:46 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yum!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:52:52 PM EST] <jerusha> Not to date myself, but I remember Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Greenjeans eating turkey after the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:53:26 PM EST] * bynw remembers Captain Kangaroo
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:53:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> Me too. :)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:53:32 PM EST] <Evie> I loved that show
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:53:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> Part of my childhood, right there.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:53:45 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:53:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> "Say the magic words!" "Please and thank you!"
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:54:17 PM EST] <Shiral> Oh lord, Captain Kangaroo. Yes. I remember them
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:54:43 PM EST] <jerusha> I'm glad it's not just me!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:54:52 PM EST] <DesertRose> Not by a good stretch, jerusha. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:55:47 PM EST] <Derynifank> anytime
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:55:54 PM EST] <Shiral> Hey, my sister and I just took a nostalgic trip to Disneyland. We can't stop aging, but damned if you can make us grow up!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:55:55 PM EST] <The_Bee> For me it was Howdy Doody.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:56:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> Growing older is mandatory. Growing up is optional. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:56:16 PM EST] <jerusha> My DH will never grow up
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:56:18 PM EST] <Shiral> Exactly
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:56:34 PM EST] <Shiral> You grow old only if you stop playing
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:56:45 PM EST] <jerusha> I remember Howdy Doody, but it was not a favourite
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:57:17 PM EST] <KK> Ditto, Jerusha.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:58:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> I upgraded to the Mickey Mouse Club in junior high.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:58:36 PM EST] <Derynifank> I was in Mickey mouse club too
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:58:55 PM EST] <Shiral> My mother was a "no-TV" militant. But she did let us watch the Mickey Mouse Club
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:59:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> 1950s version?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:59:06 PM EST] <jerusha> There was a story they did with Annette horseback riding that I really liked
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:59:27 PM EST] <Shiral> 1960's, by the time I was old enough to watch
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [7:59:53 PM EST] <jerusha> I still remember a jump she was supposed to do, and the advice was "throw your heart over and then go after it"
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:00:25 PM EST] <jerusha> I do remember the oddest things
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:00:39 PM EST] <KK> Spin and Marty.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:00:44 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:01:12 PM EST] <The_Bee> Corky and White Shadow
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:01:12 PM EST] <jerusha> Though I think it was actually "then jump after it"
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:01:15 PM EST] <Derynifank> Yup
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:01:28 PM EST] <KK> Don't remember Corky.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:01:57 PM EST] <The_Bee> Corky was played by Darlene, IIRC
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:03:31 PM EST] <KK> Ah. I was more of an Annette fan.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:04:05 PM EST] <Derynifank> Most of the girls wanted to be annette but zi always liked Darlene
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:04:08 PM EST] <jerusha> Many of us were
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:04:43 PM EST] <The_Bee> Annette had a good movie career before multiple sclerosis.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:04:45 PM EST] <jerusha> Who/what was White Shadow?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:05:18 PM EST] <Derynifank> Wasn;t White Shadow a horse?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:05:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> Corky's dog. Her dad was sheriff--Corky's dad, not white Shadow's
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:05:54 PM EST] <jerusha> I don't remember that
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:06:11 PM EST] <jerusha> But it was a while ago
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:06:33 PM EST] <The_Bee> He was a large white dog.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:06:41 PM EST] <Derynifank> Guess I don't remeber as well as I thought
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:06:51 PM EST] <Shiral> Dmitri has arrived to greet everyone
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:07:02 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi Dmitri
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:07:05 PM EST] <jerusha> Hi Dmitri
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:07:09 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hi Dmitri
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:07:24 PM EST] <DesertRose> Hi Dmitri.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:07:32 PM EST] <DesertRose> Carys is snoozing on my bed, LOL.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:07:35 PM EST] <Shiral> He can't decide if he's mad at me for leaving for a week, or if he's happy to see me
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:08:03 PM EST] <jerusha> scritches in his direction
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:08:31 PM EST] <The_Bee> When I came home afterssurgery, Melantha hid under my neighbor's bed--he took care of her.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:08:35 PM EST] <bynw> probably a little of both Shiral
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:08:46 PM EST] <Shiral> Tati acts like she barely remembers me
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:08:52 PM EST] <jerusha> He'll come around
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:08:57 PM EST] <Shiral> Oh definitely
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:09:04 PM EST] <Shiral> Especially when he gets fed
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:09:18 PM EST] <KK> Who took care of the cats while you were gone, Shiral?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:09:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> Once I settled in, Melantha wasextra clingy for a while.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:09:41 PM EST] <Derynifank> Always need to be friends with the keeper of the food dish
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:09:54 PM EST] <Shiral> I have a cat sitter I've used for years, KK. She always teases me that she'll abduct Dmitri, because she loves him so much. I never worry about them when Shawn is in charge
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:10:17 PM EST] <jerusha> Excellent!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:10:25 PM EST] <Shiral> But he was still here when I came home. =o)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:11:32 PM EST] <The_Bee> BTW, is DarkSir23 one of your gaming buddies, Bynw?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:13:25 PM EST] <bynw> he's gamed in my game before but is also one of the server admins
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:13:42 PM EST] <The_Bee> aah, ok
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:13:54 PM EST] <jerusha> Good to know who is who
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:15:11 PM EST] <DesertRose> Per my oldest brother, aunt and uncle in northern California are safe and the air near their home is still decent.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:15:27 PM EST] <The_Bee> good news!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:15:27 PM EST] <jerusha> Good to know, DR
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:15:32 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yup. :)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:15:46 PM EST] <Derynifank> That's wonderful news
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:15:50 PM EST] <DesertRose> Indeed.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:16:05 PM EST] <Shiral> So glad to hear this, DR
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:16:17 PM EST] <KK> My sister in Sacramento says the air there has been horrible for the past week or two.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:16:25 PM EST] <DesertRose> Me too. I was going to call them myself tomorrow, if my brother hadn't already said he was going to call this evening.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:16:48 PM EST] <jerusha> Not a good situation to be in
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:16:51 PM EST] <Shiral> Yeah, the wind is sending the smoke south and west. It's a bit apocalyptic, around here
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:16:57 PM EST] <Derynifank> Saw people in SF wearing masks outside
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:17:12 PM EST] <DesertRose> No, and my uncle has a pacemaker, so he particularly does not need to breathe smoky air (not that anyone DOES).
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:17:39 PM EST] <Shiral> People with asthma and other lung trouble, most likely. It's a good time to stay inside and watch TV
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:17:45 PM EST] <The_Bee> Do they live north of the fires, near Oregon maaaybe?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:17:55 PM EST] <jerusha> Yup. Even if it is a hot dog smoldering over a campfire, not the best
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:18:18 PM EST] <DesertRose> They live a little off I-5, fairly near Sacramento, but it's a smallish town.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:18:50 PM EST] <Shiral> Luckily, rain is expected by Tuesday.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:18:58 PM EST] <jerusha> That's good
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:19:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> And they're in a valley, so as long as the wind blows the right way, smoke doesn't usually stay in their valley.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:19:13 PM EST] <KK> That's good news. I'd not hearad that.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:19:21 PM EST] <jerusha> Hopefully you get enough to be helpful
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:20:00 PM EST] <Shiral> I sure hope so, Jerusha. A good rain will help dampen everything, and also clean some of this fug out of the air.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:20:12 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL @fug. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:20:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> I'm pretty sure that was a typo, but it was a typo that amuses me.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:20:35 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hope you get just the right amoount of rain
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:20:57 PM EST] <jerusha> fug is expressive, thought
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:20:58 PM EST] <Shiral> It's disturbing to live under a beige sky
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:21:00 PM EST] <jerusha> though
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:21:06 PM EST] <DesertRose> Indeed it is, jerusha, and I bet, Shiral!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:21:23 PM EST] <The_Bee> Fug sounds about right.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:21:31 PM EST] <Shiral> 48 hours ago, I was watching a fantastic sunset on Coronado Island.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:21:51 PM EST] <jerusha> Where is Coronado Island?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:22:04 PM EST] <Shiral> Just off San Diego, Jerusha.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:22:10 PM EST] <Evie> Fug is a word. It means a warm, stuffy, or smoky atmosphere.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:22:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> Well, then, apt. :)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:22:36 PM EST] <jerusha> Good spot
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:22:37 PM EST] <Shiral> My sister and I gave ourselves a treat by staying at the Hotel del Coronado. SO worth it!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:06 PM EST] <jerusha> Kind of like the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> Is that the one where the movie "Somewhere In Time" was filmed?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:30 PM EST] <DesertRose> (Grand Hotel on Mackinaw?)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:42 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep, except I spelled in wrong. Bad me!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:43 PM EST] <Shiral> Comparable. If you've ever seen the movie "Some Like It Hot," a lot of the movie was filmed at the Hotel del Coronado
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:50 PM EST] <Shiral> It's a grand old resort
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:23:59 PM EST] <DesertRose> That's one of my mom's favorite movies, "Some Like It Hot."
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:24:01 PM EST] <jerusha> Mackinac
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:24:06 PM EST] <Shiral> One of mine, too
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:25:12 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's a great movie.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:25:21 PM EST] <jerusha> Best chocolate fudge to be found is on Mackinac Island
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:25:24 PM EST] <Shiral> "Joe, they'll take us to the Ladies' morgue and I am going to DIE of shame!"
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> Mmm, chocolate fudge.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:22 PM EST] <jerusha> It's a food group
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:27 PM EST] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:44 PM EST] <DesertRose> One of my local friends has said that of my apple pies, that they are a food group in and of themselves. :D
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:47 PM EST] <Shiral> It's mental health food at very least
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:56 PM EST] <DesertRose> Amen!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:27:56 PM EST] <The_Bee> Is Mackinac US or Canada?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:28:01 PM EST] <jerusha> US
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:28:11 PM EST] <Shiral> But pretty close to the border
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:28:36 PM EST] <jerusha> My dad grew up in the Northern Michigan Peninsula
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:29:04 PM EST] <DesertRose> A Yooper?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:29:19 PM EST] <jerusha> I remember riding the ferry across the Straits
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:29:23 PM EST] <DesertRose> (I may not have spelled that correctly.)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:29:45 PM EST] <jerusha> Not a phrase I recognize, but it's been a while
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:29:49 PM EST] <Shiral> My paternal grandparents were both brought up in a little town on the upper Peninsula, but never knew each other, then. They met and married much later in life in Los Angeles, and discovered they were both from the same town.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:29:56 PM EST] <The_Bee> I suspect Lilian Jackson Braun's novel are set in the UP
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:30:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> It's a term for someone from the upper peninsula of Michigan, not the main mitten-shaped part of the state.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:30:25 PM EST] <jerusha> Ahh
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:30:37 PM EST] <DesertRose> The Cat Who books! Love them!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:30:58 PM EST] <jerusha> Dad now lives in Florida because he never wants to see snow ever again
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:31:08 PM EST] <jerusha> EVER
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:31:09 PM EST] <The_Bee> "northeast central United States."
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:31:28 PM EST] <DesertRose> My SIL (wife of the recently-mentioned brother) is from Michigan, but her family was closer to Detroit. Not Detroit proper, but that general area.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:31:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> I don't blame him. Snow and I are not friends.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:31:59 PM EST] <The_Bee> I lived in Bay City, Michigan for a few years.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:32:07 PM EST] <jerusha> I would say the same, but I am stuck with it for a while
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:32:10 PM EST] <DesertRose> (Because I have another SIL. Youngest older brother is also married, but his wife is from Russia.)
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:32:10 PM EST] <bynw> i've only had flurries a few times this season but i know its on the way
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:32:50 PM EST] <jerusha> It's here and it's probably not leaving for a long time
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:33:20 PM EST] <bynw> but you are in canada
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:33:28 PM EST] <jerusha> Yep
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:33:33 PM EST] <jerusha> Doens
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:33:35 PM EST] <bynw> i'm a wee bit south of there
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:33:42 PM EST] <DesertRose> Oldest brother and SIL just moved to Tennessee because they wanted four actual seasons, LOL.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:33:51 PM EST] <jerusha> Doesn't mean I like snow; but it's inevitable
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:34:19 PM EST] <KK> We had an ice storm Thursday night. Big branches came down, blockint the driveway to the cottage, and also our big, lovely weeping willow came down in front of the cottage. Very sad. We're going to try to have it righted and replanted, but I don't know if it can survive.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:34:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> Yikes, KK!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:34:36 PM EST] <jerusha> Oh dear
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:34:47 PM EST] <bynw> oh no
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:34:58 PM EST] <Derynifank> So sorry that you lost your tree
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> anyone hurt?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:24 PM EST] <Derynifank> Hope the replanting effort is a success
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:36 PM EST] <judywtx> Still here?
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:39 PM EST] <KK> No. Only the tree. And it was probably my favorite, of all the trees on the property.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:40 PM EST] <Shiral> Sorry about the tree, KK
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:43 PM EST] <jerusha> Hope it goes well
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:35:53 PM EST] <judywtx> Hard to lose a good tree.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:07 PM EST] <jerusha> I must be off to battle the laundry monster. Have a good week, Everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:12 PM EST] <bynw> jerusha, looks like the fastest route is only 15h18m ... 1,034 miles/1,664km
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:26 PM EST] <DesertRose> G'night, jerusha!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:29 PM EST] <bynw> night jerusha
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:35 PM EST] <jerusha> So what are you waiting for, Bynw?

[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:47 PM EST] <The_Bee> We lost a cataaalpa tree in the 1950s Hurricane Carol blew it down; my dad tied it back up; then Edna blew it back down in the opposite direction.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:37:47 PM EST] <jerusha> Nighers!
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:38:08 PM EST] <bynw> i dont go north of US Hwy 20 in the winter

[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:40:39 PM EST] <DesertRose> He was here earlier, but his dialysis schedule for the upcoming week is all weird because of Thanksgiving, so he ducked out early tonight.
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:40:39 PM EST] <bynw> KK, jemler baild out earlier
[Sunday, November 18, 2018] [8:41:07 PM EST] <KK> Not sure about Chessiecon. Life has gotten more complicated in the last week. I'm supposed to have jury duty tomorrow, on top of everything else. So we shall see.
