FTP: Turkey and Drivers

On Friday, Red, Cody and I finished everything leftover from our Thanksgiving dinner but the pies. The idea of smaller portions sure did work out well. I don’t know if the portions were really that small, or if the larger plates made a difference. For once I did live up to the statement “I am not going to eat as much as I did last year”. I could say I ate more, but in reality, I ate much less than in previous years. Been there and done that too many times. Finally getting smarter in my older years.

You would think if you were wearing a mask all the time it would be impossible to be putting stuff into your mouth. Not true. I am an example of this expansion plan. I have managed to graze my way to a few extra pounds. This dispels the reasoning about dining out causing weight gain. You can gain weight in the comfort of your own home and just save all that money you would spend at a restaurant. Who knew!?                      

Let me vent for a few minutes. Why do slow drivers hang out in the left lane. Please move over. When your cell phone rings please just answer it. Don’t stare at it for two minutes before you grace the caller with a response. Drivers, please use your turn signals when you are driving. With Christmas just around the corner, watch out for the other guy, because chances are he won’t be looking out for you. Be Well, Gary K
