Happy Early Thanksgiving to All

Just want to wish everyone a very happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving. (early) Very busy at work traning my replacement so did not want to forget to drop a note.

Alaksa is such a pretty sight with the snow. Nothing in our neck of the woods yet but the snow can wait for another week cause we are taking out the 7 evergreen trees in the backyard. Actually the power company is taking them out. The branches are hanging so low and are actually on the power lines. If they trim them up any more then they already have we will have trees with no branches, just stumps so we told them to cut them as low as they want. Charlie is going to come over and help us cut up the trees as Xcel Power company will not remove them, just cut them down and lay them in the backyard. He will use the wood to heat his shop. Good trade! My current boss is giving me trees as a going away present so we get to go pick some out next spring from his tree farm. I start my new job on December 1st. Can not wait.
Tanner started his winter job with Buck Hill Ski resort and he just loves it. He gets a free season pass with his job and he has worked every day since thy hired him. Busy boy! He snowboards every free minute he gets.
Everyone else is doing great, Dave has finally slowed down and is working a normal 40 work week. Mitchell is growing like a weed. He grew another inch! Don't think he needs to eat much on Thanksgiving (smiles) cause we seriously can not keep him in clothes!!! He is going to be thin and tall just like Dad!!! Boy I sure wish I had a couple more inches on my legs cause I always say I am not overweight, I am under tall (hahaha)!
Take care all!
Enjoy the Turkey Holiday!

I love your saying about under tall, can I steal that one and use it for myself!?! A perfect job for Tanner, huh? It would be neat to go skiing there someday and see him. That's so neat that your new job is starting soon! Getting a little nervous or just very excited?

Kuoppala and Inlaws said...

Both nervous and excited. I hate starting new jobs which is evident since I only have had 2 different jobs in the last 15 years. This will be my last, plan on retiring from here.
Yes Buck Hill is perfect for Tanner. Asked him to take it easy on the snowboarding thing until we get better insurance (smiles). I only have a two-week waiting period for the health insurance so told him to go down the bunny hill until then. haha

Thanks for the update. Nothing much new here. Went to the Range
today as they had a presentation for Minntac retirees re new ins.
which kicks in on Jan. 1. Covers
hearing aids. Just in time for
someone I know!! Told them they
should have gotten dental and eye
care in the contract but didn't.
My exams are covered cuz I'm
diabetic. Oh, glasses are covered
by Medicare if you have catarack
surgery but we don't need that yet.
Only ones we saw were Gary and Tristan. Brought back some boughs.

Thanks for the update Jody! that's a good one...not overweight, just undertall! Can I use it too even if I am 5'8"?? Good luck with the new job, you will be great!

Then we hop to Christmas. We will
try and make a Santa delivery to
Farmington and Hampton on Sat.,
Dec. 20th.

Main reason for posting this is it
is the only way I can add a message
on the Blog!!

But delivery on 12-20 is for real. dk
