Giving Thanks

So are your bellies full, did you enjoy the turkey dinner. Is this a great country or what?

My wife and I went shopping all day Tuesday so we could avoid the rush on Wednesday and it worked. We watched the news on Wednesday saw all the traffic and people running around we looked at each other and agreed that age has taught us something; don’t wait until the last minute to go marketing.

The Thursday evening dinner was just great; Michael came over to my house with his two children and his wife Elizabeth. My older son Larry had to split his time between our family and his lady’s family, so he came over to our house and left before dinner but spent a few hours with us and we were all together except for my eldest granddaughter Rio. We missed her but we will get to see her next week.

We had chips and guacamole dip, wine, turkey, sweet potatoes, green beans and almonds, a few types of olives, two types of cranberry sauce, shrimp,  crabs legs and Tofurky. What? What is Tofurky you ask? Good question. First let me tell you what it looks like.

It looks a lot like a clean shaven brown coconut that you bake for about an hour and then slice to serve. It is stuffed with some kind of brown stuff and then you slice it, after you slice it, it looks like an over sized boiled egg, something that might have come out of a dinosaur. That was for the vegan’s in the family.

Is this a great country or what?

Friends came over unexpectedly, brought more wine and some wonderful home made cake and we had desert all over again.

We talked about the food and friends who were not there, we talked about Newt Gingrich, Barack Obama, Herman Cain, Mitt Romney, social security, Medicare, immigration, football, the basketball lock out, greed and the fact that I am getting a little hard of hearing.

Is this a great country or what?
