My Son Chad Called Today

It was nice to hear from my son Chad today. He and Kristine (his wife) stayed home for Thanksgiving and made a baked ham for dinner. A very quiet holiday at home. They did pretty much what we did, stayed home and watched the Detroit Lions/Chicago Bears football game of television. Chad spoke about his new job, which he's very happy with. Now he's home by 4:00P every afternoon and spends the entire evening at home with Kristine. I enjoyed visiting with Chad on the telephone for about twenty minutes. It was good to hear that they are doing just fine. Photo: Mine

Thank you, Laurel:) Chad grew those long chin whiskers, a few years back. I hope he cuts it shorter, some day! lol

@kobesbuddy, Awww! I think facial hair looks good on Chad. But, then again, I am not his mother. However, my son does have a full beard and mustache. And he has had them for about a decade now. So I cannot imagine him without them. It's the same thing with my brothers. They haven't been fully clean-shaven since the 1980s and have always at least had a mustache.

@kobesbuddy I can bet one of the secret to their happiness lies in his long beard

@askme123 No, his beard has nothing to do with their relationship being good.

I have a new cell phone and it won't open up at times. After he made two tries, I ended up calling Chad back.

Happy you got to talk with them! my sister called me for about 10 minutes on Thanksgiving as she was too busy to talk longer, she will bring me the turkey legs she saved me today or Saturday. I was happy with that one call I usually have turkey for Thanksgiving but do have a slice from a ham steak I buy from the grocery store I put in the microwave for two minutes for Christmas (the microwave part depends on the brand of ham. some say it doesn't need to be cooked)

The ham we buy is pre-cooked, before we ever warm it up. Hopefully, Lisa will bring you cranberries&dressing, too!

@kobesbuddy for some reason some of the packages I buy of ham slices they tell me to put it in the microwave I just need the turkey legs as I have four cans of cranberry sauce and two boxes of stuffing! I bought into the idea on the news that we wouldn't be able to fin most of the things needed for Thanksgiving dinner because of whatever they call us not getting so many things on ships on the west coast. I panic bought and bought three cans of cranberry sauce and two boxes of stuffing. no problem with me buying that many as they are my favorite two things to eat! I love you so much!

When Chad married Kris 21 years ago, his entire world changed! Now, he's happy to be in a secure relationship, with a woman who puts him first.

The first job, he made less money and worked overtime every week. Now, he works 8-10hours each day and enjoys being home in the evening, with Kristine.
