#TBT Theme for Nov. 21st: Thanksgiving is a week from today. Share a Memory from one of yours.



Did Uncle Bob get smashed? Did Aunt Dot's turkey explode? Did the next door neighbor's dogs heist your bird? Was there a Thanksgiving that was so wonderful, that the memory of it lives forever?



We all wish for the best of times during Thanksgiving but sometimes it doesn't always turn out like a Hallmark Greeting Card. So for today's #TBT, share your most memorable Thanksgiving!

From my small spot on this planet to yours, I wish everyone a great, safe, and loving time with all your friends and family.



We will be at our hunting camp. This is from last year! According to the forecast, I will not be so casually dressed this year!

#TBT Theme for Nov. 15th: Share a Story about a "Special Person" that you will always remember!

#TBT Theme for Nov. 15th: Think of a Special Person who had a Large Influence in your Life. Possibly a childhood friend, Teacher in School, that special Uncle or Aunt, a playground bully, someone you struck up a conversation with on a flight and never saw again, but they left a mark when you parted your ways.

This particular theme came to me after a recent email from Sal. They were really affected by Dorian last September. In the email, he attached the following. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts. They are fine, but definitely need a break, as all of those residents, do.

I hope OP does not scrub this link regarding the future weather outlook for North Carolina and especially the Outer Banks.

"Powerful weather system will hit the Outer Banks this weekend"



All of us have had weather related events that has not been a positive in the long run. We can only hope for the best, adapt, and carry on. That is the attitude I TRY to maintain.



Another Thursday and Thanksgiving is only two weeks away! Holy Cow, or should I say, Holy Turkey, gobble, gobble!

I got stuck behind several school buses yesterday. The the back were doing all sorts of crazy things.



first, I was ticked I got wedged into this school bus chain but it eventually became entertaining. Yes, I know those "little darlings" should have been sitting politely in their seats.



Watching them being total dufus toads brought back a flood of own school bus ride experiences growing up. Of course, I did eventually begin have pity on driver!

So, for today's #TBT memory, did you ride the school bus growing up? If so, what was the most weird or interesting thing you learned, something you did, or maybe possibly saw on the school bus? I can't leave this question , were you ever suspended from riding bus?



Yep! I learned many things on the school bus. Tell us what you learned.

Well, last night was not the way I wanted to end 2019😢. THANK YOU so much, Astros, for a tremendous season. I am already looking forward to next year.

The beauty of sports lies in the infinite highs of winning, at the consequence of coming up short. Let's not forget how the players are feeling. Gerrit Cole said it best.



A Tremendous Season! THANK YOU 🧡Houston Astros!💙 Heckuva year and WHATTA TEAM!⚾️

My Uncle and of his friends are at Ground Zero for Game 6! They arrived in Houston yesterday evening. After checking into their hotel, they drove around to get a feel of the buzz there. I was taught jealousy is a sin. I will ask for forgiveness later!

From what he sent me, the town is wrapped around their Astros.


Allen Parkway and Buffalo Bayou Par (Steve, correct if I am wrong)


Game 6 General Information


Downtown this afternoon-Ground Zero


Craig Calcaterra for NBC and Sports said it best in his pre-game analysis,

"The task is pretty simple for the Astros: win tonight or tomorrow night and they’re World Series champs.
For that matter it’s pretty straightforward for the Nationals too: lose again and your season is over. The “not losing again” thing, of course, is less simple to pull off."


Justin Verlander will be on the mound for tonight's game, hoping to validate Calcaterra's assumptions.


Have a blast at the games and in Houston guys! Let them know they have a lot of support from South Carolina!
