Thanksgiving and the weekend thereafter

Wednesday I took to cooking after work... and I cooked until about 11:30 when my brother got to my house from Atlanta.. then we had a few cocktails and proceeded on eating the fudge I had made out of Jack Daniels... :)  that stuff was good..
then Thursday, we got up and started the rat race... race to my ma-in-laws house for 12:00pm thanksgiving lunch, which we really didn't eat until about 12:45.. then racing to my parents house for a 4:00pm dinner.  and 75 miles in-between the two households...
we got to my parents house and needed a beer or three... ate until I was sick... all the food was awesome..  and the desert.. let me tell you something.. the venetian hour was amazing...
and I ate way too much sweets....
after I had a belly full we headed back to our house... and went to sleep.. woke up Friday and My cowboy wanted to go for a test drive of a Chevy 3500 and a Dodge 4500... we started off at the Chevy dealer.. and he had already been to both of these dealerships.. and wanted me to drive these trucks..
The fella pulls up the 3500 Silverado and started telling me all about it.. It was nice inside.. but the price tag about made me blow a gasket... I didn't even pay that much for the Corvette....  but, we get in there and the guy tells me to make sure I watch the fenders on the dually..
I said well gosh this is my first time driving a big ole truck like this... and took off.. we drove down tot he highway.. took it up a few exits.. then I took a turn on two wheels and the poor guy was making vomiting noises in the back..  I was steady laughing..  and then I was going to pull back into the dealership and I almost got t-boned by a Highway patrol car that made an illegal U-turn across 2 lanes of traffic.....
I should have let him hit me.. he would have owed me a truck hahah..
So my thoughts on the new 2014 chevy.. not as cool as the 3500 we already have... and it's 8 years old...
the new one didn't have the steering and get-up-and-go that our other one has...

so off to the dodge dealership we went...  I was supposed to look at a black 4500 with a flatbed and stuff already on it..  but I found a silver one that was really pretty..  and we wound up taking it on a test drive.. and I had to maneuver through these parked cars in the dealership... well just as the guy was starting to breath after taking it through a tight turn I hit the side of the door panel and screamed OH GOD.. the look on the guys face was priceless....  and I started laughing.. but, then I put that truck through the ringer.. I liked the hell out of it...

but, I wound up liking the black one better than the silver.. but. they couldn't get right on the price and was taking too long, so we left there and went back to my parents house for left-overs....
then we headed to the Moose lodge because they were having a pool tournament..
and my brother and Clint decided to join in the tournament...
and I sat up at the bar with my mom, we were chit chatting about thanksgiving and the food and Christmas and stuff.. and I made friends with the new bartender up there.. she's awesome and her name is Sonny.  she's a bale bondsmen... I was totally excited to hear that.. because I read those Janet Evonovich books about the bond enforcement agent shenanigans hahah.. I love it...
so My Mom and dad left the lodge.. and we (clint, bobby and I) picked up a friend that is also a motorcycle ridging buddy of ours, Randy. and headed over to his house.. Sonny (the bar tender) came with us...  where we watched the guys get t-totally drunker than cooter brown.. haha
they were doing jaeger bombs and drinking beers like no-ones business.. having a great time...
and then Clint decided he wanted the waffle-house.. so off to the awful waffle I tried to get these guys... I got to the truck first and started it up... and was waiting and waiting...
to which Randy is face down on the ground on his knees with his arms behind his back screaming "help me I can't get up" hahahah.. and my brother was holding up the well house....  the three of them got poured into the truck and off to the waffle house we went...  I tried to get my brother to eat, but he didn't want to once we got there.. and Clint got a all stars breakfast.. and Randy said.. I"M AN ALL STAR TOOO.. haha.. so they both had that.. and I got some raisin toast..
on the way back to Randy's house, we had a little singing session on the CB radio.. we were singing margaritaville.. hahaha..
then Saturday I put up the christmas tree... not before I found out that it had gotten wet and wouldn't turn on.. haha.. so I went to Lowe's to get one.. and they had freaking $400 christmas trees.. I was like WHAAAAA.. so I went the Wal-mart.. and found one for $149.00.  So I bought that one and put it up... while Clint and Bobby nursed their hangovers...
Then Sunday we had all intentions of going bike riding.. but, it was so windy it wasn't even worth it...
So we let the thoroughbreds out with the mares... and they took off running...
and got the donkeys put up with the horses, gave out some hay and that was about it.. until I decided that I wanted to decorate the fence... so Back to Lowe's I went..
I got icicle lights like 10 boxes and bows.. and the lady at the checkout counter was like.. what in the world are you decorating.. I said.. My fence line.. well part of it.. I only did the front of the house...  and It sure was pretty when I lit it up at night..

It's weird that it is December and there are leaves still on the trees.  But this has been an Atypical fall/autumn..  like today its 70 here and tomorrow it is supposed to be 50...  crazy weather..

I also had a visit from the mischievous elf..  He beheaded my rudolph!!!
