She’s my cherry pie, cool drink of water such a sweet surprise…

This morning I got to Horn Lake a bit early and picked up a really nice-looking cherry pie for a Friendsgiving event tomorrow. All morning I’ve been thinking about that pie. Mmmm… all I have to do is walk outside and open my trunk to get it.

If I show up to Friendsgiving tomorrow with bottled water as my contribution, you know what happened to the pie.

Chip Kelly has turned down the Tennessee head football coaching job. No reasonable person would want to be in charge of that dumpster fire of a program. I’m thinking about going down to Max’s Sports Bar on Saturday to root for Vanderbilt to hand the Vols an 8th straight SEC loss. Maybe Vol fans will decide to stop associating with losers and then the Vols will have no fans… nah that’ll never happen.

Not a whole lot of news today, pretty normal for the day before Thanksgiving. I’m out of work early this afternoon and I plan on staying out late. Happy Thanksgiving, just in case I don’t find sufficient news to report tomorrow.
