Honorable theft. Stole the turkey but left the beer.

Ocala woman reports stolen Thanksgiving turkey

Romer says she asked her husband to get the turkey from the freezer so she could start defrosting it for their Thanksgiving Day meal. He came back in the house and asked, "where'd you put the thing?"

The Romers checked the freezer again, but there was no turkey inside.

Your Black Friday shopping is about to get easier!

Romer says she guesses someone was hungry. But she's puzzled that the thief didn't take the beer she had stored in the garage.

Deputies noted that Romer didn't want an investigation, she simply wanted to document the theft. And, she bought a new turkey.

2. Was he going to your house?

It was a crime of need and the offense was stealing food.

3. We're actually out of beer at the moment. Lots of booze, but I still need merlot.

 

You HAVE to have merlot with the Thanksgiving meal. I do have a 3-litre bottle of port, but merlot is better.

I just sent my middle daughter out to get cash from the ATM and pick up mushroom gravy. I'll go out for the wine later. At the moment I need a nap.

4. My legs divorced me a day ago.

Long story, but we're a day behind schedule because hubby messed up his back. I tried to make up for lost time, but the legs called it a night last night while I still had an hour's worth of work to do. So this morning, crab apple daughter gets upset because the top oven needs cleaning. It's one of those things hubby and I do together before Thanksgiving, but time ran out.

Still, absolutely love all the interpersonal clashes and challenges. It's like old times!

5. We're just having a mellow day. It's 10:00, my wife and youngest have been chatting and playing.

 

The elder two daughters are still passed out, and the cats are being naughty (as usual). I'm parked in front of the computer because my back is killing me and this is the most comfortable chair. It's nice out. We don't do turkey. I want to watch "Nightmare Before Christmas" again. I'm out of weed (well, I have been for over 22 years). I'm thinking a little "afternoon delight" is in order. It's the first time we've had all three of our daughters in the house at the same time in several months. Things change.
