Thanksgiving Is Here!

The newspaper is fat with shopping bargains.

 Tom has assembled equipment for BBQ smoking the turkey.
 Josy senses something is up and contemplates where to spend the day.  The rain has stopped.  Going outside is a possibility.
 The table is set.  Dinner is at 2:00.  Guests include son Jake, sister-in-law Jan, cousins Kris and Dan.  We're keeping track of Jill and family in Colorado via Facebook and email.

 It's time to stuff the turkey and get it cookin'.

 Apple wood provides the smoke.
 In the kitchen, casserole dishes are  accumulating in the refrigerator. The pots and pans for cooking the mashed potatoes and roasted roots vegetables and the green beans and the gravy and the sauce for the yams and assembled.  Serving pieces are collected on the counter.  The Macy's parade is on the TV.
 Tom is spiffing up outside after the last wind and rain storm.

 I'm using the down time to connect with my blog world.

And Josy has selected her "safe place" in the den closet.
All is good.  We have much to be thankful for.

  9. It's probably way too late to be asking if you still have any of that turkey left--isn't it? Sigh.
