My Kind of a Day...

Sure glad that I'm not a Turkey, cause if I were.....I'd be the very one that everyone would want.

I'm pretty tender and feeling pretty PLUMP right about now....  We had a Huge Thanksgiving Day Lunch and a Large Thanksgiving day Dinner.  I was so very thankful that my Dad and niece could join us for lunch.  

Sam's parents were not able to come for lunch, but Sam did take each of them a big plate of food.  We were also able to share our meal with our elderly neighbors that live right next door.

This afternoon, Tyler was showing me an App on his phone (I can't remember the name of it) but this is the coolest App!

The way it works is by using your phone.  It gives you directions to a place and then a compass leads you to a  certain place where you find a box of some sort, and then you just follow the directions.

Like today.....I went with Tyler on a treasure hunt.   The App led us about 2 and half miles from our house, to a cemetery.  The clue was something like "Is that really you Myrtle."   We went to the cemetery and the compass led us directly to a pair of crepe myrtles that were located in the center of the place.  Underneath one crepe myrtle was a grave with the name Myrtle on it.   Hidden inside the crepe myrtle tree was a box.   When we opened the box, there were all kinds of things marbles, coins, used shotgun shell, rubber toy, etc.....there was also a name list where you write down your (made up) name and the date.  You also add something to the box.....

I was so surprised to find the box, and then to see how many names were on the paper and how far back the dates went.   It was first signed in 2009.    I find it amazing how these kind of things come about.

This is how I spent part of my afternoon....Fun, Interesting, and enjoyable.   The rest of the evening  called for a nap and more FAMILY TIME!

Hope you all had a terrific day.
