Oops


  For those of you who read Just Be Thankful You're Not Having Eel Pies, my humble apologies.  As I warned, I was planning on regurgitating some posts for the next few weeks while I demolish my living quarters.  

  In an effort to rerun my take on Thanksgiving from last year, I tried something different (NOTE:  When I see the results of trying something "different," I worry about my home repair endeavors).   I thought I had copied my post from 2011 (and 2010...you get the picture) and was planning on returning to it sometime tonight to polish it up a little.

  
  Little did I know it posted while I was at work.  This prompted a curious Powdered Toast Man to wonder what the hell kind of ending I was trying to pawn off on you, my faithful followers.

  Let me assure you, I try to take great care here at Penwasser Place.  At no time will I attempt something willy-nilly, herky-jerky, righty-tightey, or crappy-lappy (ok, I made that last one up.  But...I think it fits here).  


 Believe it or not, I read my posts several times to make sure I get it wright.

  NOTE:  Yeah, I did that on porpoise.

  So,  I deleted that post and will try to give you something a little better.  I'll probably include parts of Just Be Thankful... because I'm still pretty lazy busy.  Still, I'd like to give you something for Thanksgiving for which you can be thankful.

  And it ain't eel.

  1. PTM was sharp to notice. Too bad you deleted it, because now I'm curious.

    1. You'll get at least part of it. If nothing else, I'll leave in the eel pies bit.

  2. Now I feel like a really missed out on something special--an unvarnished Penwasser post! I've never had them but I hear eel are tasty. Wait--I think I DID have eel on sushi awhile back.

    1. The Departed Mal used to take us eel fishing a LOT when we were kids (this was before he went insane and we all loved him-except for the fishing part). While he could never convince us to have any, he LOVED eating eel (aka "fish snakes").
      Of course, he liked mustard and onion sandwiches, too. And scratching his back with a dinner fork.

    1. The way it happened was similar to the Nothing Post (which was accidentally quite funny).

  4. I like everybody else feel pretty sad to miss it although I'm now really excited for your brand new Thanksgiving post! Don't feel bad about messing up scheduling like you did though Al, it would happen to me if I touched scheduling too!

    1. I really thought I knew what I was doing. It was a lot like that time I left the bug candles burning in the campground...

  5. You were quick on the draw there, even the cat missed it at your lair. Enjoy your herky jerky turkey.

    1. I still think the timing of Canadian Thanksgiving is much better than ours. Although it's supposed to be quite nice here tomorrow.

  6. Regurgitations are good for the holidays, just as long as they're on the blog and not on the plate! Have a good one!

    1. Whew, I'm glad you told me! I was going to show how much I appreciated my sister's cooking by throwi...oh, that thought is too gross even for me.

  7. I'm all set with the eel. Thanks. :)

    Can't wait to see the finished photos of the kitchen. BTW, was this some elaborate plan to get out of cooking Thanksgiving dinner? Just because you have no stove does not mean you can cheep out with Mickey D's...

    1. My family switches off every Thanksgiving for who's hosting. Our turn is next year. HOPEFULLY, the kitchen will be done by then.

  9. I hate holidays. I'm tired already of being bombarded with Black Friday commercials and "BUY THIS FOR SOMEONE"! I'm making a list (and no, I"m not checking it twice, who the hell has time for that?) of the most annoying commercials. Target has the lead. It passes the time in between meals and cleaning.

  11. Believe it or not, I read my posts several times
    That's more than my current readership...even I've given up reading my own blog....

    1. But, do you comment on your blogs? Don't worry...I'll be visiting sometime tonight....
      You don't have to feed me.

    1. Once done here, I'll be on another laptop to revise the repost. It may be a two-parter. Or not.

  13. I'm with Monkey...I wanna know what we missed....I say you post both!

    1. I probably won't repost the repost that I reposted. But, like my kitchen, the new will encompass elements of the old.

  14. "So, I deleted that post and will try to give you something a little better."

    Thank God thats why I didn't know what the hell you were talking about. I thought one of us had gone nuts, and I looked like the top suspect.

    1. Join the club. Most people don't know what I'm talking about. As a teacher once told a couple of kids who were listening to me rant on about something or other...."Just nod your head and smile. Mr. Penwasser will eventually get tired and walk away."

    1. It tastes like chicken.
      No wait, I was deliberately misleading you.
      It tastes like eel.
