Gobble, Gobble—Gobble!

Yesterday afternoon, Jon Wolfmueller called, and he left a message on our machine, “Cousin Nancy, this is Jon. Call me.”

It was nearly five o’clock, when I called Jon back. “Hi John! This is Nancy.”

“I know. Your books came in.”

“We just got back from HEB. It was packed full of people. What are you and Sandy doing for Thanksgiving?”

“We’ve got family coming in. Sandy is going to be cooking for twelve people. What are y’all doing for Thanksgiving?”

“Well, we had plans to go out to eat, but our friend had to cancel on us, which was fine, because I would rather stay home and cook our dinner—after we cook and serve Thanksgiving dinner to our dogs.”

“Is Kinky going to help feed the dogs?"

"I think so."

What are you fixing for you and Tony”

“I was thinking about getting one of those turkey-in-a-box deals, so T. could have a holiday dinner, but I just couldn’t do it, after watching Imus this morning. His wife, Deirdre, started talking about all of the poor turkeys, and what they go through, etc. It really depressed me. So, I told Tony about it, and he told me that he didn’t care about eating turkey or ham. So guess what we are having?”


“I’m fixing homemade, mostly organic, meatless tamales!” Jon laughed. “That’s why we had to go to HEB this afternoon, so I could buy a tamale steamer pot, corn husks, tofu and the rest of the ingredients!”

Fast Forward—

Today, around twelve-thirty, Tony and I stopped by Wolfmueller’s Books, so I could pick up my books. “Hi Tony and Cousin Nancy!” Sandy and Jon both said. We said hello to them, and to Mary Jo. “Jon just e-mailed you a funny deal about Thanksgiving—that you have got to watch!” Sandy said. “When we saw it, we thought Nancy has to see this! It is hilarious!”

“I will check it out, as soon as we get back home.”

“No,” Sandy said. “Y’all come on back to my office, and I will show it to you, now. It’s on my computer!” Tony and I followed Sandy back to her office. Sandy pulled it up on her computer. “Nancy, this is about you, so sit in my chair. Ready?” Sandy clicked the play button!

Sandy, Tony and I laughed out loud, as we watched it! I hope that y’all will check it out! It was great!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of y’all! Gobble, Gobble—Gobble!

P.S. Tony is going to help me make our bean and cheese and tofu tamales this evening! If they don’t taste good, we have an emergency backup plan—Luby’s or Jon and Sandy’s house!
