Wistful Wednesday:Thanksgiving 2006

When I was cleaning out and organizing some photos I found this one…it made me smile.

2006…nine years ago Thanksgiving in Elkhorn Nebraska (suburb of Omaha). Trica our oldest daughter and her husband Dick lived in Nebraska back then.

Thanksgiving 2006 (640x335)

Savannah with Dakota, Paige with Daphne, Madison with Chance, Noah with Miney and Adam.  Dakota and Daphne are no longer with us.  Chance and Miney are getting older.  Well and those kids..they grew a tad.

Chance ran so hard chasing his ball on the pavement that we didn’t notice he had ripped the pads of his feet until he started limping. He spent several days on his leash laying down with goop on the pads of his feet.  Border Collies never know when to quit.

I think this was the Thanksgiving that someone did deep fried Snickers bars. A Snickers bar frozen and then covered in a batter and deep fried.  I like my Snickers bars just plain…not fried or covered in batter…but the kids thought they were great!

One time at a shopping mall parking lot someone asked Far Guy if he was the Governor of Minnesota.  Minnesota License Plates plus a bald head must equal Governor.

We really enjoyed going to Nebraska several times during the winter, it was warmer there, the grand girls were always happy to see us and there were all kinds of Train Shops and Antique Stores to visit.  We found the people in Nebraska to be very friendly folk.

  1. Look at Chance being a youngster! Nice picture, and what a lovely bunch of critters and their people. That is getting to be a long time ago. Scary, isn't it, how fast time flies by? Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Connie! :-)

  2. Friendly people for sure. Still many many long trips to Colorado along I-80 became quite tedious. Truth to tell though Nebraska was a whole lot more boring than freeway driving in most any State. I guess the idea is to get there as fast as you can.... Happy Thanksgiving, Connie.

  4. I love that photo!

    Thanks for the chuckle about the Far Guy being the governor of Minnesota - too funny. I agree that Nebraska people are friendly: I'll add that they are helpful, and VERY courteous drivers.

  6. All those pups and cute kids! I wish time didn't go so fast and they all stayed little a lot longer. So Nebraska thought FG was Jesse Ventura, eh?

  7. Now I thought a deep fried Mars bar was a Scottish speciality! Never heard of a deep fried Snickers.
