Journey with Friends

10 Oct

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Hey my friends.  How was your week?  Mine moved right along with its normal ups/downs.  But overall, not bad at all.  Food wise, we made good choices.  Now I did work a lot and I think my body was telling me over the weekend to slow down – and I did.  I rested all day Sunday with the kids surrounding me.  Who could ask for more than that, right?  We watched a couple of great movies on television, laughed and just had a great family day.

We also watched several football games over the weekend.  Unfortunately our beloved Tennessee Volunteers lost yesterday to Texas AM 45-38.  It was their first loss of the season and they did give it their all.  Shout out to Texas A&M for a job well played.  Now the next important game for our Tennessee is playing against their rival Alabama this Saturday 10/15/2016 at 3:30pm.  This is a game we will *not* miss.  We will be glued to our television.  In fact, you will probably here us screaming from the Hotel Thompson.

Another great game was the Atlanta Falcons playing Denver and winning 23-16.  Now, I have to give kudos to Denver and we know there are plenty of readers from that area here in the blogs.  Denver played a great game.  We also have to apologize for one of our Falcon players who got a little zealous towards the end of the game and got an unsportsman penalty.  We were not too happy about his behavior for sure.  So Denver it was a great game and Lynch was awesome.

Today is also Canadian Thanksgiving.  We would like to wish all of our Canadian friends a wonderful day full of love and happy moments.  Rejoice with your families and know that we love you too here at the Hotel Thompson.

So my friends, how was your week?  Did you watch any great games?

    No, no, Dem Broncos didn’t play well. At the begining of the game I said to Hubby they all were playing like they had the flu. Coach Kubiak was taken to a Denver Hospital right after the game to be treated for the flu. I just hope they are better Thursday.
    I’m not saying the Falcons didn’t play well. They deserved the win.
    But life goes on.

      It was definitely a game that acted as if not all of the players showed up for sure. I heard about Coach Kubiak this morning. I was so sad for him. I told my hub that he looked like he didn’t feel good yesterday. Weird. Hope he is doing better today – Bacon’s MOM

        You should be proud of your teams today, except for one incident.

        I know! I couldn’t believe that player did that. I can’t remember his name but he infuriated us. What an unsportsman way to conduct himself. Shaking my head. Bacon’s MOM

    Mama had cardiac arrest during the Vols game…and, rain from Hurricane Matthew, which pelted down ALL DAY gave us a power failure mid game, which didn’t help. A highlight for us last week was our biggest week ever in Happie Blankie sales! Mama sez it’s cause Christmas is coming. I say it’s cause peeps want to help homeless dogs…..Mama can be sooo business like.

      P.S. Yeah – daddy was yelling at the television over the VOLS game. It was priceless for sure!

    How’s Danny O’Brien after his being carted off the field? As for the Denver game, I think the entire team was kidnapped and some off the street dudes were substituted. *Sigh* Oh well…there’s next week, right? 😉

      You know I haven’t heard anything yet on him. I need to get daddy to check it out. I thought about the same thing with your team. Mom was going to try to call you but she didn’t have your number – too funny. XOXO – Bacon

      Amen to that. And this past Sunday was so much needed. Just a day of relaxing and doing absolutely nothing. June


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
