i have a reputation to uphold

I said a week ago or so on Facebook that I was in search of turkey lights for Thanksgiving. I love party lights and have them for most holidays except Thanksgiving. Today, a package arrived with two strings of turkey lights. My sweet husband made sure I had turkey lights for this year's festivities.

They came all the way from China which is funny and embarrassing at the same time. Imagine the workers in the factory that makes turkey lights. They must think we (royal we) are insane.

Bob and Betty brought me a wonderful gift when they came and they tried to fulfill the party light wish but couldn't find them in Alexandria. They brought turkey paper napkins that we'll use for Thanksgiving and hula girl party lights that we're going to string over the patio door. A good stand-in for turkeys.

I made it to the car after work before the zombies got me so I'm happy and relaxed at the end of the day. You have to watch out for zombies. They know your habits and they'll wait for you but I was faster and I dodged them. Whew.

Goofy looking turkeys, I must say...
Those Chinese people must not know what a turkey looks like. Don't think I want them picking out my Thanksgiving turkey....
