I got up at 6:50am and got on the computer to check email and Facebook. I checked the email bin for the Photo Midwest group to see if there were any new emails that came in during the night. There weren't! I went to get Kathy up at 8:00am and noticed it was snowing - enough that the grass was white already. Kathy wasn't ready to get up yet so I let her be; however, she did crawl out of bed at 9:10am. We then had breakfast together, made a short grocery list (for next week) and talked about our upcoming day. I then got back on the computer and didn't see any real interesting activity in email or Facebook. I scoped out the manual for Kathy's second computer monitor because the settings are not right - the screen is too bright and I want to be sure to know how to adjust it properly.
I sort of lost track of time, which often happens when I'm on the computer, and heard Kathy whooping at 11:07am. Ahhh----the Badger game was on and she was in cheering mode! I called my barber and made an appointment for a haircut next week, just so that's on the books and I can get in. With the holiday approaching it might be hard to find a time to get in - thus, the appointment.
I haven't heard from Paul about the Photo Midwest newsletter so I inserted a picture as the feature picture, one of a blue heron, and hope that's good enough for this week. In my opinion, the newsletter is done, but I would like Paul to look it over before I schedule it for Monday's send time. If I don't hear from him by the time Kathy leaves for church tomorrow - I'll go ahead and schedule it, thus completing all the steps in the instructions he gave me.
At 12:30pm we left for some classes we're taking this afternoon. The Badger game was almost half done and the score was tied 7-7. Kathy dropped me off at "The Camera Company" where I took classes at 1:00pm and 2:00pm - each 45 minutes in length. She headed off to Michael's where she made a Christmas wreath. She was back to pick me up at 2:30pm, but I didn't see her parked where she was. She sat and I waited until 3:15pm when she stuck her head in the door. Yeah!
We got back to Oregon and went to the restaurant Senor Peppers, a place we've been talking about going to for quite some time. We weren't disappointed because the food was very good. We stopped at Walgreen's where Kathy picked up a medication and I looked for a Thanksgiving card for Wyatt. Their supply of Thanksgiving cards just reeked. I'll make something on the computer and send it to him in an envelope - hopefully they'll appreciate the thought.

We got home and celebrated the Badger win over Michigan: 24-10. This was the only game this week that featured two ranked teams; everyone else in the top 25 was playing an unranked team so there should be some blow-outs. I got on the computer and didn't see anything from Paul so I'm going to assume that, unless I hear from him by morning, the newsletter is okay to send. I was only on the computer until 5:30pm, when I watched television until 7:00pm with Kathy.
In the second games of college football today Oklahoma beat Kansas quite handily and keep their hopes alive for a top four berth in the NCAA championship run. Oklahoma State lost a close one to unranked Kansas State and their hopes of a Big 12 championship should be done with since this is their third loss. It'll be interesting to see how the rankings do tomorrow and on Tuesday. Since the top five teams (or more) all won their games I don't see any changes in the lower rankings.
Kathy found a Christmas movie at 7:00pm so I got back on the computer to check on things and to work on my Thanksgiving card for Wyatt. Kathy found another Christmas movie at 9:00pm to watch and then some HGTV shows until 11:30pm.....I had gone to bed at 10:30pm.
