    Happy Thanksgiving

    What's everyone up to??? Any special traditional food being served at your house ??

    We usually have tons of kids and grandkids over but this year about half the kids are celebrating with in-laws. It's to be expected I guess.

    Having the usual. Turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, roasted brussel sprouts with pancetta, butternut squash, potatoes, stuffed mushrooms, creamed onions, sliced fennel, local cider, and a bunch of pies. Yum

    Supposed to work a 14 hour day on Friday at Lowes for black Friday but that ain't going to happen Probably go in around 2:00 and stay until 9:00

    We're roasting hot dogs over a bonfire. I assure you that this is not traditional for Thanksgiving here in Minnesota! But we are thankful for a warm November day.

    Invited out to dinner late in the day.

    Working on the move this weekend. Got the computer moved to the MH. Working off wireless router from the house. MH is cosy and I am warm, which is a good thing. I am blessed with so many friends, including all of you. I could not be more thankful. I am sure my tummy will be filled tomorrow, but every day my heart is full. Thank you, friends. What a great family this is!

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    My son and his wife have not been to our home (the farm) in over 5 years but they are coming this year. We did get to see them last year (T-day) in Florida because of a wedding we attended.
    They will arrive late Thursday and leave Saturday afternoon . They live near DC -- son works for DOD and his wife has a dental practice in Fairfax. So it is Turkey with all of the trimmings. Being retired from the Church I do not have to celebrate Thanksgiving mass and now I can spend time with Family and Food. A good reason to get out of bed. Hoping I feel well enough to have some fun. Being careful of the COC I will wish all of you a healthy and blessed Thanksgiving.
    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Having traditional food, but at a non-traditional location. Going to friends house in Dallas. Their kids are both gone, working in AZ, we are doing Thanksgiving with my parents on Saturday, so it was just a great match. Will eat, watch the Cowboy game, then come home. Hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow. Remember what you are thankful for!!! Jim.

    My sister has hosted our family Thanksgiving along with my BIL's family since I was 10. Will be going over there tomorrow and heading to my wife's family on Saturday. My son made it back on to land a few days back, but won't be able to come home as planned. I may have some training up in Seattle the first week of December so may hopefully see him then.

    Well Happy Thankssgiving to all you who celebrate Thanksgiving six weeks later than we do in Canada. Hope everyone gets a good tryptophan high and feels very comfortable with your families after dinner. For me, that's the best part.
