Thanksgiving was quiet here in Minnesota. Grandson Justin made ham,potatoes,broccoli, corn, Mac n cheese and his first yeast rolls. Melody and I went to pick up 3 things at Walmart. Took longer to check out than get the items. I never shop Thanksgiving or day after but Melody needed me to stand in line for a tablet. I got a little homesick missing giving all the animals their special treats. William will be here a week from Thursday and we will be back on the homestead the 22nd. Can't wait!
Williams grandson Will (Harvey's brother) has been in hospital since week before Thanksgiving. First 3 days they treated him for migraine but told him it was mental. Third day they were going to release him when he coded. He has been in ICU ever since on ventilator. He finally got diagnosed with Guillian Barre` Syndrome and pneumonia. He has a very long recovery ahead of him. He is 15 yrs. old. Harvey had his 7th birthday party in the waiting room of ICU.

Grandsons Quintin and Casey have been playing with their team Franklin Panthers in NC state playoffs. Their team was undefeated all year until 4th round of playoffs. They got beat by a team that cheated to win. They played a honest hard game with lots of injuries. There is a investigation into the other team. If it proves out then Franklin will get to go to state championship game. I hope honesty pays off and these boys get to go.

We are having our family Christmas treasure hunt Dec 21st. All the family will be there this year so it should be awesome. Woody is coming from Ft Stewart and I can't wait to see him.

Melody has gone to New Orleans for the week so Justin and I are here alone. A little snow today but not much. Suppose to be up to 40f by Friday.  Minnesota is letting me down for snow and winter weather.
