  • What Are You Doing for T-Day?

    We're having wife's sisters, our children and grands, daughter's in laws, an extra dog, and SIL is bringing a contract worker from work.
    I got a large (23 lb) turkey, and extra giblets, from a local farmer, people are brining side dishes, I'll make lobster cakes for veggie daughter.
    Out of the group, seven are Mayflower descendants.
    And watch the Macy's Parade, and listen to Alice's Restaurant.

    Also to Her sister’s. The Trumpster BIL won’t be there (yay!), and the other sister is unmarried, so just me and the three sisters. I might have to take a good book.

        Just the kids, grandkids, outlaws & a couple of friends, but looking forward to it.

        WNCS (The Point) plays Alice's Restaurant at noon. Either 104.7 or 95.7 in Thetford..

        Happy Thanksgiving!

          Having a small mob tomorrow. First time in a few years, due to COVID concerns. Three of the longtime regulars got prior invites, but hopefully they'll be back next year. Still... we're cooking a 16# turkey and an 11# ham. I'll make stuffing & gravy as well as the bird. Ham is Son1's dept. but we'll coordinate. Various others bringing other fixings. All I asked for was mashed taters to soak up my gravy. All hippie organic stuff. The ham from a small outfit whose owner I know from boating. We'll be seating 9.

            17 here for turkey. But I’m dreaming about tasting Lee’s Roast Beast.

              That roast does sound good.

              Three extra family members (Parents) for Turkey and all the sides.

              Going to watch the Lions.

                Going downstate to suburban Detroit in the morning to dine with my friend’s family, most of whom I’ve known since I was a kid. I’ll be coming back home tomorrow night.

                  Well, we WERE going over to our son’s place, but he just called to report 1 child with diarrhea and another vomited in the car.

                  We might go out for Chinese.

                      We are going to drive 'half way' and meet the daughter and son-in-law at a restaurant for an early afternoon meal - each one orders what they want, we catch up on what's going on, then all head to respective houses

                        Going to a friend's house. Hoping to score the carcass.

                          We will have a simple Thanksgiving. Kalevala will fix the turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and cranberries. I’ll bake a Finnish Rutabaga casserole and a Grasshopper pie for dessert. Just the two of us as one daughter is a crew member on a research vessel on the Atlantic, the other daughter lives in DR. Will be relaxing and watching a football game or two.

                            We have a very small turkey and parents coming over tonight. I hope they not gonna stay too long and I can have a little more time for myself in the evening. I am excited to play couple of games with the 카지노사이트 and drink a beer or two in a quiet. That was a very long and stressful week and I really need some rest afterwards. Can imagine that the whole December is going to be the same.

                              I finished re-installing the electric motor on my fantail launch yesterday. Today I will pull the batteries, pull the boat out of my shop and put it to bed in the boat shed for the winter.
                              Shop clean-up will follow.
                              Wife and I will probably go for a nice walk this afternoon.
                              Just the two of us for dinner.
                              No turkey for the first time in our 42-year marriage. We both love Shepherd's Pie, so we are making it with ground turkey to keep with the season.

                              I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
