As you can seeKetchup Boy” (a.k.a. Steve the Knight) just couldn’t handle the festivities Thursday! After cleaning up the turkey, the associated fixings, and sampling the pecan, chocolate pecan, pumpkin, and coconut pies, we settled in for a little football. Steve made the first score…I mean snore!

The Dragons swarmed him while he slept as Gary and I clicked off the shots – he slept on!

You see, Steve has long advocated that “naps are for sissies!” He has always looked up to his manly man heroes, like John Wayne and Jeff Cooper, but, as I’ve pointed out, most all of history’s great men were “nap takers,” including The Duke!

It’s always been important for Steve to be a “manly man,” even if it was just in his head, so when he succumbs to the ravages of an “older age” we don’t let him forget it. After all, “Ketchup Boy” is just another good ol’ boy like the rest of us – and we love him just the way he is.

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving…we did…but Steve don’t remember!

Hey now, careful---he done the same thing that I did TODAY---turned on the Arkansas/LSU game, slept through it all until the last quarter-plus-3OT's, and enjoyed every minute of it! I DID have an advantage, however---the wife had to work, and there were NO witnesses! Well, except for the dog---and HE ain't talkin'!

Yeah, us REAL men don't nap---we just "rest our eyes"!

You GO, Steve! Give 'em hell....!

Steve would rather admit to "passing out" than to taking a nap!

A nap is one of those manly rituals..I think it's a rule...right under.. thou shalt always accept a second helping...:):) so ketchup boy is only followng the rules of the game...:):)..the more advanced in maturity you get the higher the nap rule ranks in the standings....:)

I tell ya, he dodged a bullet on that one. Fallin' asleep around that bunch is just askin' for it.

LOL, there's one in every family! My brother in law will just stretch right out on the carpet and sleep. He doesn't even pretend anymore:)

At first I thought that catsup bottle had a malevolent purpose. You're such a tease, Mushmeister.

Well, I think the Dragons were INCREDIBLY dignified and restrained to gather around him and NOT cover him with shaving cream and stick his hand in a bucket of cold water.
