Drive through turkey dinners and 40!

For Thanksgiving, our family went to OC and helped  prepare 1700 meals.  Then we delivered 310 meals to the small community of Luther, east of where we live.  Our family has helped with Thanksgiving day in the City for about 4 years.

Bill drove the church bus out to Luther filled with the 310 meals including pie, cranberries, and silverware.  We delivered it to the parking lot of the Service Center in Luther, which is an old grocery store, set up to give away food and clothing from the church of Christ.  People drove through and picked up the number of meals they needed.

Other news, why is it okay to lie on your drivers license about our height and weight?  But we can’t lie about our age.  According to my drivers license, I turned 40 over Thanksgiving vacation.  I don’t think I am that old, I really feel like I am 30.  I have friends that have recently turned 40 and they say your body starts falling apart.  I guess I will see.
