Grandma's Thanksgiving Invitation

(Remember– this is a joke, folks. Some people try to take it way too seriously. )
We all have some of these relatives.
Sometimes, we ARE some of these relatives.
Most of this is the voice of someone's experience.

Grandma's Thanksgiving Invitation

Dear Family:

I'm not dead yet. Thanksgiving is still important to me.
If being in my Last Will and Testament is important to you, then you
might consider being with me for my favorite holiday.

Dinner is at 2:00, NOT 2:15, NOT 2:05. Two (2:00)
Arrive late and you get what's left over.

Last year, that moron Marshall fried a turkey in one of those contraptions and practically burned the deck off the house. This year, the only peanut oil used to make the meal will be from the secret scoop of peanut butter I add to the carrot soup.

Jonathan, your last new wife was an idiot. You don't arrive at someone's house on Thanksgiving needing to use the oven and the stove. Honest to God I thought you might have learned after two wives - date them longer and save us all the agony of another divorce.

Now, the house rules are slightly different. This year because I have decided that 2/3 of you don't know how to take care of nice things, then paper plates and red Solo cups might be bad for the environment, but I'll be gone soon and that will be your problem to deal with.

1. The University of Texas no longer plays Texas A&M. The television
stays off during the meal.

2. The "no cans for kids" rule still exists. We are using 2 liter bottles because your children still open a third can before finishing the first two. Parents can fill child's cup when it is empty. All of the cups have names on them and I'll be paying close attention to refills.

3. Chloe, last year we were at Trudy's house and I looked the other way when your Jell-O salad showed up. This year, if Jell-O salad comes in the front door it will go right back out the back door with the garbage. Save yourself some time, honey. You've never been a good cook and you shouldn't bring something that wiggles more than you. Buy something from the bakery. The only thing that jiggles at my house this Thanksgiving will be your Aunt Trudy after a few glasses of wine.

4. Grandmothers give grandchildren cookies and candy. That is a fact of life. Your children can eat healthy at your home. At my home, they can eat whatever they like as long as they finish it.

5. I cook with bacon and bacon grease. That's nothing new. Your being a vegetarian doesn't change the fact that stuffing without bacon is like egg salad without eggs. Even the green bean casserole has a little bacon grease in it. That's why it tastes so good. Not eating bacon is just not natural. And as far as being healthy, look at me. I’ve outlived almost everyone I know.

6. Salad at Thanksgiving is a waste of space.

7. I do not like cell phones. Leave them in the car.

8. I do not like video cameras. There will be 32 people here. I am sure you can capture lots of memories without the camera pointed at me.

9. Being a parent means you have to actually pay attention to the kids. I have nice things and I don't put them away just because company is coming over. Mary, watch your kids and I'll watch my things.

10. Speaking of being a parent; if you are babysitting a neighbor’s kid, it is not automatically family here without prior notice.
Take them back home or put them in one. Or tell the neighbors to send enough money to pay for a restaurant meal.
If your child still wears diapers, you will leave with the same number of them as you had when you arrived. Bag them up and take them with you. The trash man doesn’t come again until next Tuesday and the last thing I need is a trash can full of baby poop. No exceptions to this rule. You’re dealing with a woman who washed cloth diapers so this would be an argument you will lose.

11. Rhonda, a cat that requires a shot twice a day is a cat that has lived too many lives. I think staying home to care for the cat is your way of letting me know that I have lived too many lives too. I can live with that. Can you?

12. Words mean things! I say what I mean. Let me repeat: You don't need to bring anything means you don't need to bring anything. And if I did tell you to bring something, bring it in the quantity I said. Really, this doesn't have to be difficult.

13. Domino's and cards are better than anything that requires a battery or an on/off switch. That was true when you were kids and it's true now that you have kids.

14. Showing up for Thanksgiving guarantees presents at Christmas. Not showing up guarantees a card that may or may not be signed.

15. If you want to talk politics, sit next to me, but I’m old enough to speak my mind regardless of your precious feelings. If I were you, I’d practice don’t ask, don’t tell because even when I mind my Ps and Qs, I can still spell bullsh_t.

In memory of your Grandfather, the back fridge will be filled with beer.
Drink until it is gone. I prefer wine anyway. But one from each family
needs to be the designated driver..

You know I love you. And I am indeed thankful for my family. I used to have a handle on life, but it broke. Follow the rules and we’ll all get along just fine.

NO Jello-salad. I mean it. Really.

Love You, Grandma.

copy function not set correctly?

When I try to copy a URL, it copies the title of the page but not the URL itself.

When I copy some words within a post, it's ok.

Highlight works fine.

It's both when I use the mouse button copy or CTRL C


Confusing? Why Oz?

Confusing? Why Oz?

Trump taught conservatives to hate Muslims even more than before.

Yet he supports those who he feels can help him.

Saudi royalty and Oz.

It's about Trump!

And when Oz let him down? --- Blame others.

Hot car - seat belts?


JD Vance winning strategy... Verified by the Donald. Donald takes the credit.

If repubs take House & Senate. Impeach Biden. Would they refuse a new VP in their hate?

If repubs take House & Senate. Impeach Biden. Would they refuse a new VP in their hate?

They dream of impeaching both Biden & Kamala and installing Speaker MTG (really McCarthy) but it does not work that way.

But it's not true that the speaker of the House — or any other predetermined individual — automatically becomes vice president. Upon becoming president, the former vice president would choose another individual to become his or her vice president.

"Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress," Section 2 of the amendment explains.


-------------- edit: As I said, it's their "dream".

A basic drum set vs two elaborate setups

The lone drummer earned his beans & bacon that day.




Free socialist money.

Free socialist money.
Republicans complain about Biden/democrats spending. They have no qualms about taking/spending money that they did not vote for.

They get the free 'socialist' money and the credit for it.
Then they get to whine about Biden's spending.

Bringing home the bacon.

Pork is when that other politician wastefully takes taxpayers money to their district.

It's bacon when you bring it home to the deserving folks in your district.
