As forecasted, drizzle, 12C temp, calm. This is the weather we have the weekend, still looking for sun on Thanksgiving Day. Temps to remain in single digits for the high.

Friends on the prairie getting a fair amount of snow in some locations this past day or so. No doubt this first offering will disappear in most locations, but plenty early to remind us what is just a few weeks away.

Kids both home in thier own pits overnight, Rob has movies, Emily her computer.

Fuel prices moved up this week three cents, and the CAD making a move to parity witht the USD. This morning CAD @$.96 to the USD, not a good thing when lobster market in the U.S. the exchange always a welcome boost to the bottom line.

Donna getting the preparation for the Thanksgiving Day feast underway this morning.

Dear Rob:

Well - blasted Charlotte Co., beat out the B side today in rugby - how did that happen? It was a pretty clean match. It drizzled off and on but the field was an absolute disaster. Mud galore. Guess what color the boys were after being tackled? Gross.

Barry and Cody both played the B side game and then there was too many injuries on the A side so Cody and Barry both played that game as well. B side game 1:00 - 2:45 and then A side game 3:00 - 4:45. Thought they would both be goners tonight, but Barry went to his hockey game and then they all went to a big party next door. Oh to be young! I would have been dead after the first 20 minutes of rugby B side game. Cody got a nail ripped off by a cleat so that probably hurts more than getting cleated.

The entire rugby team was here last night for a party - looks like husband and I will make about $10.00 in beer bottle returns? --- plus other friends from university stopped in. God - what a zoo.

I also preparing stuff for dinner. Tonight made pumpkin cheesecake with chocolate swirls and key lime pie. Now on to beets with goat cheese and glazed onions. That will be it. If anyone starving - dinners tomorrow at 5 - 6. STOP IN!

Have a great one. Word. Chunks

Good morning!

Would you believe I spotted gas for 2.09, whilst up in Greenwood, SC, visiting my Dad last weekend? Most of the stations up the road, from Orangeburg to Greenwood, ranged from 2.12 to 2.19.

I'll be heading to Walmart this afternoon to gas up the truck and get some groceries. I see that the price at Murphys' down there was 2.16 last night. Hope it's the same today. Murphy's accepts Walmart gift cards for gas and gives you 3 cents off the posted price. Which is why I keep one strictly for gassing up at the Murphy's stations. They're only found at Walmart Superstores, though.

You can check out local prices at most locations in the US and Canada at Gas Buddy.
