Thanks re the pic, Marie. It is 60 miles directly west of Minneapolis. Actually, I did some enhancements with the computer's photo editor so I can' take all the credit.
Somebody on FB put up a recipe for a "Thanksgiving leftover wreath" where you take the stuffing and meat and anything else and make a circle of crescent roll canned dough to envelop it. Looked delicious but extremely carb loaded
It was interesting because I tested my blood in the living room and my aunt and uncle really asked a lot of questions about db. They were both science teachers and very curious.
Here is of pic of them, before we were "going for a ride", which, in Minnesotan, means everybody piling into the car and driving off with no real destination. GO figure. I loved it.

Good Morning, Marie. I had a good night. BG104. Hope you did too. Your readings good? It was cold last night I had to put the heat on. Tom is out running. He plans to run 18 miles. He is getting ready for a Marathon Dec 29. He reads tmorrow so we will leave for church early. Florida plays Florida State at noon. We will get killed. They are the #2 team in the country. Car sales here every dealer, I think a lot of cars. Give my best to Ed. You have a good day. A NIG HUG,Reed

Hi Marie-I want to wish you and Ed a very Happy Thanksgiving. I read where you are not cooking for the holiday, I am not cooking either. We were invited to dinner at a friends' house. I must really watch what I eat to keep my BG from going thru the stratosphere. Have a great day !

Hi Marie. I will never be a baker. Took out my apple pie. It looked great. It was in a foil pie plan. When I went to move it it collapsed. It will taste good anyway. Reed

Good Morning,Marie. Rained hard all night. I had a good night. BG102. The sun is out but very windy and 55. Did you get all your orders filled. When I buy myrolls this afternoon I bet they will not be as good as yours. Tom comes at 1 and he will go with me to get the turkeys and a few other things. BG102. Have a good holiday. I doubt I will be on tomorrow. Baking an apple pie. Pumpkin next. My very best to Ed. Cars on the brain. A BIG HUG. Reed

Hey Marie. Sounds like you did good on the bread sale.
I sure hope little Chico doesn't accidentally get shut in a drawer.
No snow here yet, but bitter windchill today.
Hope you have a good Thanksgiving, my friend.

Hi Marie,
How are you?
I pray all is well with you. I am alive and kicking still.
Just been thinking about you lately you do hold a special part in my heart even though I have never met you.
I damaged my phone so no more tweeting for me till I get a new
I met a girl from Somalia that also has diabetes,it was amazing. We had so much in common it was so scary. Nura is growing talking to trying to boss me around but she knows deep down I am the

Russ opend a drawer to get a tee shirt and Chico jumped in the drawer ready for a nap.My typing is awful. Laundry today. Tomorrow baking 2 pies go for insulin then the turkey. I hope Tom gets off early so he can go with me. Even only 3 of us I am doing it up as if I have 30. BG108. I bet you are baking. Is this Guild day? No TOPS tomorrow.

I hope your night was not like mine and your Readings good. I bet you will be baking like crazy filling orders. I loved those rolls you have on Kathy's page....they look great. I could eat 6.Not doing much today except go to pharmacy. Russ has the house redy for Thanksgiving. Wed I pick up fresh turkey and rolls. I know you and Ed going to Ed's brother's. Not much else to report. Cars dreaming about cars. My best to Ed. You take good care. A BIG HUG. Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Feels like a 50 pound weight has been lifted from my shoulders. That was a big drop in the PSA. December assignments are out. Tom has to serve on Christmas Day. I will go with him. Nice and cool here and the sun is out. BG 102. How are things with you? You still have orders to fill? Imagine you will get real busy as we head into Christmas. How is Ed? Give him my best. Big car sales here butI do not know if anyone buying. I heard from Kristin. Another name I do not see Gerry? Taking up a special collection Sunday for the Phillipines. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Oh Marie, I just LOVED The video. It was so cute. I watched the entire song on allthe channels. Thanks for thinking of me!!
I also checked out the recipe. Will have to try it. I made these weired bbq apple chips where you slice an apple and dip them in a curry type mixture. I think I let them bake too long because they were just awful. Plus, I am afraid of my mandolin. I swear I'll cut myself one day or another.
Also, thanks for the needle tip for the sewing machine. I was buying my needles at the dollar store, so I guess I won't be doing that again. I put the machine away for a bit because the dress was pretty tedious.
Getting a bit chilly here, with a chance of snow. I hate the early darkness. After being lasered 10 years ago I don't see so hot in the dark. In my own neighborhood It's fine, but new places intimidate me. I sure don't need to be stepping of a curb that I'm unaware of.
I think Jane, Esther and I are going to my hometown for Thanksgiving, to be with my aunt & uncle. They are both in rapidly declining health so I think this will be the last holiday season they're in their lake home. Both my sister and I are willing to bring large several components of the mean, but, no, they are stubborn and want to do it all on their own.
I saw your loaf on Reed's page - looked just gorgeous. You are going to make a name for yourself, sister!!

Good Morning,Marie. It was supposed to rain all day BUT the sun is out and 75. I did not have a good night. Slept until 3 and that was that. Russ said he did not sleep at all. He went back to bed. Glad your little breads made such a big hit. Bg104. Laundry all caught up so just going to take it easy today. What are you baking? Any thanksgiving orders/ Give me best to Ed. Hope he has a good car week. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. Dark dreary damp and I am sure it will rain. Tom off to Gym then work. He is running a half Maraton Sunday. I cannot run to the door. We will have swordfish tonight if he can find it. The fish market does not have it too pricey for his customers. I have been feeling pretty good the last few days. BG 102. The house decorated for Thanksgiving. I had a huge Capamonte Ceramic turkey I found in a box. Forgot I had it,,,nice centerpiece. AC/HEAT all serviced good to go NO CHARGE. I forgot I had a service contract. Thenew ladies across the street;...Mother and Daughter asked if I needed anything at PUBLIX. In 10 years first time ever asked that. Cars are being advertised. Cars everywhere. How was your night? Readings? Glad you are getting good orders. Keeps you out of trouble. Give my best to Ed. HUGS,Reed
