Christmas is Somehow just around the Corner, with that being said Gift giving and receiving will come along with it. I truly do enjoy giving more than receiving, I always put thought into gifts and often wonder if someone truly likes the gift I had chosen. I have stumbled up on to a list that tells you by peoples reaction if was a bad gift and they are comments or reactions as follows.
- A simple “Thank You”
- “I love it” and well they really don’t
- “Your so Sweet”
- “Interesting “
- “What made you pick this?”
- ” Ive always wanted one of these”
- Keeps repeating the name of the gift
- Say nothing at all just sighs
With that being said, No gift I ever gave was Liked.
Fast Food, I hate to admit it but my family and I do have several meals out a month, I know Fast Food is not good for you, but sometimes not having time to cook in combination of convenience we do. The place we find our selves at most commonly is Chick-Fil-A, the entire family agrees on it with no Fight, the Service and Food its self is always top notch and let face it, this is Gods Chicken. They would have to be the Number one Restaurant , Right? Nope!!! as a Matter a Fact The End of 2019 is coming very fast and the numbers are in, The Largest Restaurant in the US is Subway, having Nearly 25,000 locations and bringing in over 10 Billion dollars in sales this year. I like subway but I just don’t know anyone that lives for them like my beloved Chick-Fil-A
I am always amazed at surveys, some of them are just ridiculous!!! Thanksgiving is just days away and oh boy, I am beyond pumped. Thanksgiving is a Hectic and Expensive Holiday at least around my house. This week I was reading about what they believe a Thanksgiving Meal for 10 should cost. This article claims that you should only spend a total of less than $50.00. I know your thinking just as I am no way!!!! The American Farm Bureau Federation claims a Meal for 10 consisting of a 16 pound Turkey, Stuffing, Sweet Potatoes, Rolls, peas, Cranberries, Veggie Tray, Pumpkin Pie should only cost you $48.91. I call BS!!! I usually buy little here and there leading up to the big day, something like Christmas shopping.
Every time I read or hear about an Hunting Accident , it makes me stop in my tracks and think about what adjustments do I need to make to ensure a Safe Hunting Trip for myself. I take all precautions possible wearing Fall Protection, Blaze orange, ETC. I have hunted nearly my entire life and never once taken a Maybe Shot. You have to be sure of your surroundings and what you are shooting, a Story from South Carolina this morning talking about a hunter that shot his friend thinking he was an Animal. How can you mistake your friend for a Deer? Much to my surprise the shooter has not been charged and no word on how his buddy is doing. Hunters Safety Card ,I guess we need to start administering IQ Test to be allowed to hunt. This is a Stupid Problem and should never be an issue. Please be Safe out there my friends.
A story this Morning has inspired many men, A 100 Year old WWII Veteran from New Orleans has Credited his long life to three simple things, Whiskey, Wine and Wild Women. I have no clue if this is a real thing, but it does give you goals to shoot for, lol. I can not even be upset if I don’t make 100, I will have fun trying.
Well… We all know that with the closer we get to Christmas you will have to be out and about shopping, and as far back as I can remember with shopping well that comes the Bell ringing from the Salvation Army. I have found myself in times I had the extra to give and times I didn’t, when I didn’t my excuse was that I had no cash. That excuses will no longer work because starting this year they will begin using Apple Pay as well as Google Pay at the Red Kettles. When heading out this year be prepared that excuses is gone!!!!
Wow, I can not Believe several things this morning. I can not believe that we are in November now, November 1st makes it exactly one year since I lost my Dad. I have no clue how it has been that long, it just seems like last week. I miss my dad and know if he where here with me now he would be complaining just as I am with the amount of people done gone Christmas Crazy!!! Recent studies show that nearly 40% of people already Christmas shopping and decorating. Nope not us we wait til the last minute just as dad would have done. I love Christmas but Procrastination is a Family thing!!!
38 Seconds!!! Thats how long it takes for someone to judge your home. The Woody bunch has very crazy Schedules and that combined with 3 small kids, makes it impossible to keep the house work completely caught ,up but if your like us and running a little behind, a recent survey shows us the top things people go off of to judge our home. We do know the obvious such as Smell and if the dishes are dirty, but I didn’t know a couple things to look out for such as if the Furniture is Comfy or What books you have on Display. I can tell you now, if you walk into our place, there is pet hair and dirty dishes. We also buy comfy furniture for the for the pets mentioned not Company.
WE all for the biggest part eat out from time to time, one item my wife and kids fight about is who has the best French fries. I personally prefer Chick-fil-A Waffle fries, lets face it they are God’s chosen Fries. Recent survey asked just over 3,000 people where they prefer to get fries. The Top 6 list goes as follows.
- Five Guys
- Burger King
I have never been the consistent work out type, but when I did go through my short fitness spells, I was a cross training type of guy. In fact there was a time I enjoyed running daily. Modern times you can find countless work outs, Never and I mean never has Yoga interested me ( Except you ladies that was built to Wear Them pants at the Grocery Store.) I couldn’t imagine doing Yoga. I could not, nor would I Wrap them Britches around my ass. There is a new form of Yoga becoming very popular called ” Rage Yoga ” and it is just how it sounds, You meet together and while listening to Loud Explicit Music, Drink Alcohol and cuss. Maybe I was born to do Yoga after all…….
Something that is very popular and my wife and I didn’t do is to Register items for wedding gifts. I guess we where not concerned about getting items, but I can understand not wanting to get something that you didn’t need or couldn’t use. One item we received at the time seemed odd, My Grandparents got us about 50 sets of silverware, I asked my grandpa why so many and he replied that having kids we would need it. Oh my goodness he was so right we are down to about 8 forks now.Recent Polls asked folks what they wish they put on their registry and a few items are kinda stupid, lol.Some of the items are as follows , robot Vacuum, Bread Maker, Luggage and Lawn Equipment. Really? Think back now, What would you have put on yours?
Random Thought, what happened to old ugly Teachers? Being an active part of our kids education, I am at the kids school just about daily for at least pick up. The modern teacher is not what I remember having in school, not even close. My teachers as I remember them anyway, had to have been pushing retirement and wearing boring clothes. When I pull up to the pick up line in the afternoons, I see teachers younger than I am and wearing cute little sundresses. Most work environments, still have seasoned employees. I believe it to be a good thing that the freshest minds are teaching our kids but its not fair Jr, Jr get the pretty Teachers. I guess I will be happy I got to eat food in the cafe before they changed the food up, Square Pizza and Super Donuts will always hold special place in my heart.
I’m sure that you have heard of crashing weddings, Well a guy named Dennis Valstad in Wisconsin just may prompt you to start Crashing Funerals. Dennis was a owner of small, but fairly successful Dry cleaning business, like a modern day George Jefferson. Dennis Recently passed at the age 69 and did not have any family and never had children. Dennis believed that no-one really cared for him but very few, He decided that only people who really cared for him would attend his funeral. Dennis secretly made will declaring that all of his money be divided equally, to all that attended his funeral. When Dennis passed he had a surprising crowd of 270 people show, he was loved by entire community and never knew it. Dennis left behind $500,000, so all that showed to his funeral was given a cut of $1,800.00.
Somehow October has slipped up on us, this is when I would personally consider Fall to Start. I know Fall officially started couple weeks ago, Fall means something to different people. Lots take to hoodie’s and yoga pants while sipping on Pumpkin Spice drinks. Recent polls suggest that the top things we look forwards too is,Candy and Halloween. Who the hell did the survey? I can tell you wasn’t anyone from West Virginia!!! WV is ready for pots of Hot Chili, Hunting Season and Mountaineer Football!!
Well yesterday on the Morning Air Show we talked about concerns of your bride running off with your wedding DJ. Here is a neat follow up, Have you been looking to set a date for the big day and looking for something substantial? How about a day that hubs won’t forget easily, also a day recommend by Astrologist. 2/20/2020 could just be your day!! Astrologist claim that this day indicates “Empowered Commitment” as well as Emotional Stability not to mention on this day Multiple Planets will all be in the same sign ” If you’re into that” . I would also like to think the date is nearly impossible to forget as well. Better start booking soon, the date seems to be popular.You may consider Jason Murphy as your DJ but be warned fellows he cleans up pretty well.
Sometimes I read a Story that some how even amazes me, Seems as if a lady from Tennessee has way more heart than brains. She was driving downtown when her attention was drawn to small feline that had ran across the road. The lady decided that she was going to help this poor “kitty” out that obviously needed her. After a Chase she was finally able to catch the Kitty and load up in her car. The Dullard woman heads for home to discover the very rough around the edges “Kitty” was in fact a Bobcat (LOL) Apparently did not take long to realize that the “Rescue” was not going to work out. She then had to wrestle the Bobcat back into box and deliver to wildlife rescue. Yes aside from her scratches all is well and the Bobcat has been released back to the wild.
I am just like many folks, super excited about the new iPhone 11. I always wait for the Latest IPhone release to see what’s new because the Woody Household is High tech Rednecks and loves Apple Products. I will admit, I usually don’t have upgrade available when new phone is available or have the funds to get it. I have always told my wife just seems funny that something goes wrong with current phone right after release. I have been fairly lucky with my current phone which is the Iphone 8 Plus, it has given me good service for a couple years. This week lots of people world wide has went to Social Media making the same claim that just prior to or after iPhone release, the version of iPhone they have starts having issues even some just stop working. In 2017 Apple made a statement that they did slow down some older models to protect aging batteries. I personally think could just be something to that update you have to have, This update could just be the kiss of death for your current device.
Having small children makes it hard to get in as many date nights as my wife and I would like too. Having limited nights, has probably allowed the fact of how expensive dates are slip our minds. The folks at Match.Com has recently done a survey, asking people just how much money people are dropping on a Date night. Results from the survey discovered that Dinner for Two, a bottle of wine and two movie tickets was just over one hundred dollars. A New York Date night Which was the most expensive State (Surprise, Surprise) will run you $297.27, and the cheapest Night out was South Dakota, which would run you $38.27. West Virginia has a hefty price tag for a night out as well, with a romantic evening costing you on average $96.84. I would consider myself lucky to have a cheap date wife, $10.00 bucks fuel in the Harley, 25.00 for beer and wings. A date night at the woody house is $35.00 bucks!!!
Would seem as if something very common is Celebrity- Owned Alcohol Brands. Some of these Alcohols are very pricy and some not so much.
Drew Barrymore, Barrymore Wines run $22.00 to $28.00
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Miraval Rose runs $24.00
Channing Tatum’s Vodka will run you $30.00
Ryan Reynolds Brand of Gin ” Aviation” will run ya $33.00
Justin Timberlake has a Tequila called “Sauza 901″ for $34.00
Rapper P. Diddy has a Vodka called Ciroc you can pick up for $39.00
Actor George Clooney has his variation of Tequila called Casamigos for $45.00
Legend Bob Dylan has his own Spirt with asking price upwards of $80.00
The most expensive on the List, is a Champagne ” Armand de Brignac owned by Jay-Z with a ‘price tag of just over $320.00 a bottle
Think I will just stick with my $20.00 WV Mason Jar – Jr
