Nevada welcome

Here’s the sign welcoming us to Nevada. Also telling us not to enter. I’m not sure how to take that. Great Art taken during our Thanksgiving trip to Salt Lake and courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam.

We had a very nice weekend visiting family, seeing LRN1 and, most importantly, going to the temple together. Photo of the aftermath of that event Real Soon Now. Our Thanksgiving dinner featured approximately 24 people, including numerous relatives of our sister-in-law, all of whom were delightful. There was one awkward moment when the sis-in-law realized she had forgotten to cook the turkey, but we worked around it. One of her sisters-in-law had cooked a turkey and brought a bunch of meat over. We all went easy on that meat and it turned out great. There was way more than plenty of everything else, including delicious stuffing (possibly my favorite element of Thanksgiving, other than napping) a very good cranberry jello, and lots of pies. Our turkey finished cooking shortly after dessert was over, and there were plenty of leftovers.

I received notification that LRN1 had added a comment to my previous post sometime in the recent past, but, strangely, I can’t see it today. Maybe tomorrow. Stupid Blogger.

Update: Now it’s there. Stupid Blogger.

Got some things done today. I have to do 24 performance appraisals, and I’ve been dreading getting them written. Finally couldn’t put it off any longer, so I did 12 today and will do the other 12 tomorrow. I’ll start holding meetings with my people on Wednesday. Not my favorite thing, but it needs to get done.

Went to a concert at church last night, featuring excerpts from Handel’s Messiah. It was a very nice way to kick off the Christmas season. LRN2 played the organ for several numbers and did a superb job – lots of nice comments from people. He also sang in the choir when he wasn’t playing. In my completely objective opinion, his contribution was the high point of the evening. They also had refreshments.

Time for Home Evening, so I’ll leave you with some tragic Thanksgiving-related food violence news: a turkey bomb.

See you tomorrow.

    The puns in the comments on that news article are amusing. Punnery is perhaps the highest form of humor.

    Remind me not to talk too long on the phone!
