From the Desk of John Rourke – November 27th, 2014


I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving today.

I plan on stuffing myself with ridiculous quantities of turkey, stuffing, corn, pumpkin pie – and a family desert called “fruit salad”. This fruit salad is made with fruit cocktail and whip cream. Man o man – it is good.

I will probably watch The Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, football  and wish it was snowing outside. Will spend some time in the garage looking over some supplies Рbut for the most part will just try to relax.

Enjoy the day and relax (unless the in-laws are over).

  1. Rourke, I may respond to a post only occasionally, but I read your blog almost daily.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    With all the ‘crap’ going on this is country and world it’s nice to have some ‘family time’ where love and respect overpowers everything else. Just take the time
    to reflect all you are thankful for.

    Take care and stay safe.
