Happy Birthday Guys!

Happy Birthday to each & every one of you!

What? You say it's NOT your birthday?

But it's TURKEY DAY, isn't it?

So far, I've baked a Pecan Pie, a Pumpkin Pie, Ghiradelli Brownies, and made Peppered Glazed Pecans. Yummy, no? My mother is doing the turkey, a pork roast, twice baked potatoes, and all the yummy stuff that goes so well with Thanksgiving. My boss is bringing German Cucumber Salad..



yep. You read that correctly. My Boss. Am I the biggest KISS ASS in the world or what?! Actually - you guys (that read me regularly that is) know that my boss is pretty cool. She had been planning on going to Denver for Thanksgiving, when her daughter was informed that "she will work Thursday night or be fired". So. They decided to stay here. Which leaves just the two of them by themselves for the holiday. Now - everyone knows that Thanksgiving is supposed to be a huge riotious affair with big gatherings. I can provide the riot with my kiddos alone. Anyhoo - we invited her to come, and she IMMEDIATELY accepted. I kinda thought she would politely decline - since she'd already bought her turkey and all... but she and her daughter jumped at the invitation. So I'm glad! And you guys can call me an ass-kisser all you want. I don't care (much).

Have a SAFE holiday everyone. When you return from whereever you are going for Thanksgiving - I demand a roll-call so that I will know that each and every one of you is safe and accounted for.

I'm serious.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and your boss and her family! I think it's very charitable of you to invite her.

    We're stationery here at San Antonio for Thanksgiving at the Braunig Lake RV Park. We're having a potluck today. The campground provides the ham and turkey and we bring a covered dish and a dessert. Should be yummy!

    Aww, Norman - I need an invite to this shindig.
    My thanksgiving in october was a bit shoddy and I didn't even have TURKEY! Can you believe that?

    And a happy turkey day to you, too! I'm thankful for all my readers, even the ones who don't always comment.

    What, no cheesecake? ;)

    Also: my special word was "uuwhaat"; I'm going to use that in a sentence at least once today.

    Happy Birthday to you too. You ass-kisser. :)

    Totally kidding. I think what you did was great.

    Happy Thanksgiving Norm! I wish I spending it with my family. Instead they are all about 5 minutes away enjoying good football and food and I am here with some crap I came down with in about 2 hours last night! UGH. That makes for a pretty sad Thanksgiving.

    Hope yours was wonderful!

    Hope you had a great Turkey day, Norm. We were in a food coma all day.;)

    The eating of a turkey is a beautiful thing. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
