So here is a funny from Thanksgiving weekend.
On Wednesday of last week, I had four bananas at my house. My daughter Kayla had already arrived here. I needed to leave to go and pick up my granddaughter Georgia from her mom as Georgia was coming early to have playtime with the cousins. As I was leaving I asked Kayla if there was anything else she thought we might need. She said, “Pick up some bananas.”
So I got to the convenience store where I was getting Georgia and they weren’t there yet so I went in. I got three bunches of bananas. The kids were going to be at my house for four days. That seemed like a good number of bananas to me.
When I got home with Georgia and the bananas, my son Buck had arrived. Guess what? He brought bananas too.
So we all decided if the kids complained they were hungry, all of them would just get a banana. We had to somehow use these up. We managed to get the kids to eat a couple of bananas Wednesday night.
Thursday morning my daughter Kelli showed up. She brought donuts for the kids and (you guessed it) BANANAS!! Two bunches!!
Then a few minutes later, Buck’s girlfriend Fergie showed up and (you guessed it) she brought BANANAS!!
AHH!! For all the bananas that were in the house, one would have thought we were raising monkeys not kids!!
Kayla ended up taking some bananas home with her. Buck ended up taking the ripest ones to his friend who makes lots of banana bread and I am down to four bananas again!! HA!!
I never did count up how many bananas we had all together and how many the kids actually ate. I know they ate a lot of them.
From now on I guess we’re going to have to assign someone to bring bananas so we don’t end up with so many next time. It really was fun to see the look on everyone’s face as more bananas came!! We’ll all remember Thanksgiving 2023 the year of the bananas!! Oh…we’ll also remember it as the year Craig became the maker of the turkey. He smoked it and it was SO GOOD!!
