Despite having to work til 8 AM and then having to be back to work at 10 PM, i had a really nice Thanksgiving thanks to the future Mrs. Phillips fixing up a small feast. Now it's December 1st and we are just about all decorated for Christmas after a few more lights outside. How does one go about buying one of those super big ladders and transporting it home? We had to borrow a neighbors to hang the top lights. Speaking of neighbors, this Friday they are having their annual Christmas party that even got a write up in the Charlotte Observer. i almost feel like a celebrity since we will be there.

i found these Thanksgiving instructions entertaining...
"15 LBS of mashed potatoes in a casserole with a serving spoon. Please do not use the over-size blue serving dish you used last year. Because you are making such a large batch you can do one of two things: put half the mash in a regulation size casserole with lid" 
Is that dish regulation size or what?


  1. Maybe get a ladder like the Little Giant. You can get it home folded up and then expand it to be an extensions ladder. Probably a good investment anyway, given its versatility.

    This one goes to 19', others maybe more.


  2. This party sounds like a good time to introduce the people of North Carolina to spank the box.

  3. That ladder would be a real investment...might be worth it though.

    and i don't know if the east coast will be ready for spank the box quite yet...this may be a fancy lad party.
