Thanksgiving Leftovers and Stuff(ing) UPDATED

UPDATED: Links in the post are now fixed. Sorry about the problems.

 We made it through Black Friday and are full steam ahead into the Christmas Season. My wife is a Christmas Freak, so at my house we are getting into the Spirit of Christmas at warp speed. Yesterday we did some house cleaning and re-arranging of furniture so we could put up the Christmas tree, which we did. We also have this damn five foot tall snowman that dances and sings when somebody walks close enough to it. The kids and Heather love it. Me? Not so much. It was a gift from my father-in-law, so going postal on the stupid thing is out of the question. So far. I guess I could put some duct tape over the motion sensor on it, but I would have to face The Wrath of the Wife if I did, so scratch one great idea. I bring up Christmas because I am gonna make a concerted effort to post Christmas related material on this blog for the next few weeks. With that, let's have another "Best of..." Weekend of some of the most popular posts from recent weeks. 

  • Texas Tidbits: Big Drunk, A Texas Hero - I did this post about three weeks ago on what ended up being a slow blog day, so I figured I'd give it another go today.
  • Maine Minutiae: Haunted Maine, Seguin Island Lighthouse - The posts I have written about lighthouses have proven to be very popular. here's one I wrote just before Halloween. Read it, if you dare.
  • Colorado Chronicles: Unsinkable - The story of the Unsinkable Molly Brown. This is a pretty good post. Look it over, when you can.
That's a good lineup of some of our most popular posts that merit another look. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Here's a quick reminder that if you'd like to write a guest post for Three States Plus One, drop me a note or an article at threestatesplusone AT gmail DOT com and I'll look it over and post for both of my readers to see! Don't be shy. I mean, hell, you've read some the crap Pulitzer-worthy material I've written, so your submission would undoubtedly be much better. Send 'em in and be ridiculed by friends and family alike recognized as a literary giant. Have a safe Saturday and watch out for bargain-hunting vicious little old ladies if you dare to brave the world of Christmas shopping today.
