Thanksgiving already. Wow, where has the year gone?
There is much to be thankful for. Here’s my “grateful for” list:
- My health, family, home and friends
- Books, and the people who write, publish and sell them
- CD player technology and classical music CDs
- Computers, blogs and blogging friends
- That I live in the U.S.A. instead of most other countries in the world.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day! We’ll be hosting family and friends at the old homestead. We’re trying something new this year. We bought pre-stuffed turkey breasts instead of a complete bird. I like the dark meat, and will miss it, but this way everyone else gets what they like. The cooking time is much less, as is the mess and fuss. The rest of the meal is pretty much as usual, including pumpkin pie for dessert. Since I don’t like pumpkin (come on, did the Pilgrims really make pumpkin pie? Have cranberry? Watch football?) there will also be cheesecake. I usually get a fruit pie, but this year I’d be the only one who would eat it and I wasn’t going to buy a whole pie for myself!
I’ll be watching football, having a rare toddy and enjoying the day. It’s uncommon for us to have little ones ranging about the place, but my wife will handle that aspect of things. I did my part by shopping, cleaning the house and getting everything ready while she was at work Monday-Wednesday.
Not to fear – I’ll be posting a Friday Forgotten Book tomorrow and and I have an unusual Saturday Soundtrack for you as well.
Now for some fun! Here’s a THANKSGIVING QUIZ for you.
Can you find the turkey in this picture?
(hint: there may be more than one correct answer)
