Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

What are you all doing this year?

For me it's going to be a quiet day within g football at home. I have 2 days off (which is like a vacation since I work 6 day weeks) and I plan to deep clean my place after my last month's long bender that came to an end on 11.2. So I guess I'm thankful for having 3 weeks getting my life bak together again. Also spending time with Pam this morning so that is always nice.

He's alive!

We're hosting a small group this year; daughters, mother-in-law (oy!) and a nephew and wife. And we won't do any shopping on black Friday. So there!

Also, we're getting together with cousins on Saturday night.
We don't even have American Thanxgiving but for the last 3 weeks everybody has been running Black Friday sales. I assume the same down there. What is the incentive to get up at 3AM to crash the doors and fight with your neighbours over the same deal?

It's just part of the big scam. People think they're getting a deal, and they want to get everyone's christmas gift in 1 day. But it's all leftover and discontinued crap that the stores are just trying to clear out.

Those first few holidays after the parents are gone are kinda weird and tough, but it’s great when the rest of the family transitions into taking things over. It’s kind of reassuring when the traditions get passed along. Hope it was a good one Jon.

Me too. All the food was awesome, especially the sweet potato casserole with the melted marshmallows and pecan topping. I needed a serious break before dessert.

I should also mention the turkey, roast beef, green bean almondine, stuffing with sausage, warm rolls, and salad. And stuffed mushrooms, and spinach dip, and cakes, pies, and fruit for dessert.
