Time-lapsed Blogography Day: Twenty Seven Years Ago Today

Twenty-seven years ago today, on November 23, 1995, I was a senior in high school and it was Thanksgiving Day. I spent most of the day trying to get the newly-released Windows 95 installed on our family computer because Disc 2 had some random corrupted sectors. Staring at the computer screen all day gave me a migraine headache.

When not battling the Windows installer, I was practicing the high range on my trumpet and hitting solid high E-flats. The Es were nonexistent and I had the long-range plan of hitting high G by the end of the school year. Ultimately, I never practiced consistently enough to have a solid high G.

Later in the afternoon, I walked up the street to feed a chihuahua named Rusty while his owners were out of town. I used to bring him back to my house but he'd just pee all over the carpet and bark nonstop.

I didn't write anything about dinner itself, so I presume it was a nuclear family affair (Ellen was home from UVa) with a much-too-large turkey, stuffing full of raisins, spiced pears, rolls, and sweet potatoes.
