So today, it’s out with the rain and in November’s beautiful blue skies. I’ve also decided to go sugar-free until Thanksgiving. No, I won’t even indulge in any (more) of Princess Buttercup’s Trick-or-Treat candy.
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. There is lots of food and friends, and we get to see family members that we don’t usually see but once or twice a year. Good times.
Actually, I got an early taste of Thanksgiving last week. I went to get an interview with Joey Usery of Superior Heating and Air. The interview was for “Heritage Living,” a community magazine that I write for.
Please note that I don’t get any kind of kick-backs for mentioning small businesses in my blog. But sometimes there are definitely perks in being a writer. Like that day!Miss Cindy, the office manager at Superior, and her office staff cooked a whole Thanksgiving feast for their crew. And then they invited me to join them in the fun. It felt like Christmas at Aunt Bertha’s and Uncle Otis’s house. Everybody had a paper plate of turkey, dressing (that’s what we call ‘stuffing’ in the south, because we eat it as a side), mashed potatoes, green beans, Milo’s Sweet Tea (I think they’re out of Birmingham), mac-n-cheese, and pies.
Apparently, Miss Cindy had a turkey that she had to cook up so that it wouldn’t go to waste.
Anyway, here’s a shout out to Joey, Miss Cindy, and the rest of the crew at Superior Heating and Air for making me part of the family for a day!
