I had to work Thanksgiving night at Yavapai Cafe, but this pic is from e-cafe at about 12:30-1pm. Brenda & I went for lunch there...obviously lots of other people did too.
Missed the Macy Parade on TV...there was a dog show on instead (on the TV in the corner)
Oh yes, Brenda will kill me for this 1...but she ate to much Thanksgiving dinner. She tried to convince me that the pumpkin pie was good this year, But I still didn't try it. I bought 3 pumpkin pies from the general store instead.
She missed out on Thanksgiving dinner last year because she got sick.

This is our unit manager, Adam. He is wearing a "Wizard of Oz" tie. The minute I came into work he started out asking me what the significance was with the Movie wizard of oz & Thanksgiving...anyone who could answer that question correctly first would get a free meal card.
So for the next few hours, the 3 cashiers & I kept passing along trivia stuff about the movie. Guess there is a book called "wicked" that I need to read.

Just some friends who came into Yavapai to eat dinner together.

Overall, it was a pretty good day. Tai even passed out extra food to everyone at the end of the night to take home. He forgot that I don't need tons of gravy on my food though. Oh Well.

Deer Farm

Here's Christine and her husband John. (both are taxi driver's in the park)

They had gone to the deer farm last year...but I have never been before. It cost us each $8.50 to get in which was expensive...then we had to pay for the cups of food (which didn't last to long)

Don't really think Christine liked having all the deer crowding her.

John decided to play photographer here and got a bunch of pics of me & Christine feeding the deer...actually the deer will eat ANYTHING!
They started chewing on the back of my shirt and I even had to get my keys out of 1 deer's mouth.

(obviously this was taken before I hid the keys down inside my shirt...cuz I can still see them hanging)

ok whats a camel doing in a deer farm?

Actually there are wallaby's, llama's, quite a few different birds, mini donkeys and other animals at this place...who woulda guessed it?

Deer kept chewing on Christine's coat and pulling on the tie-strings.
Good thing the deer in the park don't do this...or people would not be able to walk around here. We always say the animals in park are not afraid of people...well believe me it ain't nothing like the animals at the deer farm.

John found a new date as we were

this bird could only say John stopped to talk back to it.

I had run into Christine yesterday morning in e-cafe and she invited me to tag along with her & John while they ran errands and paid glad I did.

It was a fun day!!...went to deer farm, 2 thrift shops, had lunch at some chinese food place next to "Dollar Tree", picked up a hitch-hiker on the way to a casino (I lost $10), and then Fry's before heading back home. Which made for a long day.

Veteran's Day

My younger brother, Lt. Col. Allan Conkey is getting sworn into his newest job in Washington D.C. (this pic is from a change-of-command ceremony last June)
He has been in the USAF for 24 years now
This is Philip. I think the picture was taken while he was in South Korea. He recently got back in Ft Hood,TX...which had some unfortunate crazy excitement this week. Luckily Phil is safe and thinks we are all silly for worrying about him. Phil has been in the Army for only 3 years and is thinking of getting out.

This picture below is Adam, when he first joined the Army. He has been to Iraq twice and now stationed in Hinesville,GA.

I may not always agree with these 3 guys on every subject that pops up, but am sooo glad I have the right to freedom of speech and the freedom to disagree with them when ever I want and the freedom to come & go when ever the mood strikes me, and of course tons of other freedoms that I'm sure I take for granted without even thinking of them.
I guess I need to say Thank-You to them more often for my freedoms.
*around the canyon*
Well I seem to be having Monday-Wednesdays off from work this month. Not sure how I forgot, but went to marketplaza to get my mail & go to the bank...oh yeah, post office & banks are closed for the holiday today...DUH
Guess I will have to go into bank before work tomorrow, seeing as my atm card ain't working.
