BIRD is the word!

I've always been the type of person that hates to be late, or even cut it close.  I much prefer to get where I need to be early.  At least 15 to 30 minutes early, depending on the type of appointment/meeting/function I am there for.  Being late or cutting it close, stresses me severely.  I think it's because I joined the Coast Guard at 17, and when you are late in the military, it carries consequences.  Maybe if you know this you can understand the following.

Yesterday, I purchased my Thanksgiving (18 lb.) turkey, and all the stuff I will need for the fixin's.  My Christmas shopping is all done and I will be getting everything wrapped within the next couple of weeks.  Way early, I know, but that's just the way I am.  Just ask DKW.

I  tend to do this with most things.  Get it done early and not worry about it.  The problem is, my memory is not the greatest following a bad motorcycle accident in June 2010.  SOOOO, in an effort to stay ahead I make notes, lists, etc.  But, sometimes, I still forget.  So sometimes I end up with extras of things.  But with food stuff, its things that don't spoil, or I can freeze it.  For example, I have 2 unopened jars of dill relish, 3 packs of weiners, 3 containers of garlic salt, etc.  I will use it, but now I'm making myself double-check my grocery list before making purchases.  Only got so much storage - ya know.

Okay, I'm kind of wandering.  The Starkville High Yellow Jackets won at Warren Central (in Vicksburg, MS) on Friday by a 28-10 score to go 9-1 on the year (6-0 in their region).  Next Friday, is the final regular season game (at home) against Clinton High.  Clinton High (7-3, 5-1) is the team my grandson plays for.  The winner gets first place in the region for the playoffs.  If the loser is Starkville, they will be the #2 seed, If its Clinton - they get the #3 seed and Warren Central the #2 seed.  Whatever happens, Madison Central is the #4 seed.  Got that?  Don't worry - It's okay.  You can print out the playoff brackets this time next week.
Miss. State had a BYE this weekend, but will play Thursday night (11/5) at Missouri on the SEC Network.
Everyone have a great week.
