tacky curtains

Happy Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the US. And millions of people will be yanking on turkey necks and shoving stuffing up a turkey’s butt at an ungodly hour. And I’ll be joining them. I have twelve people coming for dinner, which is half the amount I had last year at my home. But I’ll still be up at six in the morning to get that turkey into the oven and trying once again to figure out how long it should remain there. If I remember correctly, it’s like twenty minutes per pound. (Or per person: I don’t cook often; I have cook books.)

But I have a lot to be thankful for in my life, and I try to stay on top of this as much as I can. And though I don’t need a specific day to remind me of how thankful I am, it’s nice to know there is a specific day in case I ever forget.

And no, this isn’t an actual photo of me holding a turkey neck. I pilfered it from a web site I’d googled by doing a search for “Thanksgiving Photos.” First, I’d never have tacky curtains like that in my kitchen, thank you. Second, I usually just yank that ugly neck thing out while it’s still wrapped in paper, hold my nose, and throw it away as fast as I can (smile).
