Happy Thanksgiving

TurkeyMy view of Thanksgiving was skewed by my Father’s attitude. Having grown up on a poultry farm, he viewed the holiday as the culmination of weeks of work “processing” dozens of turkeys to be frozen and readying a few dozen more for fresh delivery. We generally ate ham when he was alive.

Having been on my Grandfather’s farm at this time of year I can understand my Dad’s attitude: our meal was subject to interruption by people picking up a fresh turkey at the last minute. A sale is a sale when you are business for yourself.

I will be at my Mother’s for a turkey which is under the care of a nephew, his wife and my two-year-old grand nephew. As I have been working on the re-hab while they are here, I am officially “Uncle Bob the Builder”.

Thanks to NTodd I can share a link to My Dad’s favorite Thanksgiving TV show: the WKRP turkey giveaway.

Enjoy your meal and try to forget about the world’s problems for a day: they’ll still be there on Friday.

Hey, Cousin!

Aren’t you even getting the day off from “Extreme Make-Over: My Own Home Edition”?

We’re having steak (sorry, Steve), but we are having homemade cranberry sauce and apple pie. With Cool Whip. 😀

(The Professor and I are hunkering down at home today; we’ll be subjected to a major Family Event thing in the middle of December at his niece’s wedding. ::shudder::)

Peace be unto you and all. I’m not working on the re-hab today, but I do have to string the dreaded “lights” at my Mother’s house so they can be turned on tomorrow for the official start of the Christmas season.

I did indeed, Jams. Great quantities of food was consumed and the lights were strung.
