Only enough time for a crotchety rant

Twitter is nice and all, but what is this world we live in where e-mail has become the OLD-FASHIONED way of communicating? In other news: My knees ache and I had to walk to school uphill both ways through snowstorms as a tyke.

and did you only have one sweater? that you had to share with your 8 siblings? and holes in your shoes? because you might be my grandma.....

YES. Five siblings, but otherwise, YES. And I think I had to share with three neighbor kids, so it evens out. AND I GOT IT LAST. ;)

It just doesn't feel like Thanksgiving if I'm not hearing a Grandma rant. Thanks for making me smile.

Oh, and make sure you top EVERYTHING with Mandarin Oranges from a can. Makes it fancier. And should anyone question carrot salad with some canned mandarin oranges on top, break out your "THIS WAS SUPER FANCY DURING THE DEPRESSION" story. Followed by something related to The War.
