MY DAILY CALENDAR – DAY 332 – NOVEMBER 28, 2013

MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR THURSDAY, DAY 332 OF 2013: Happy Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, or The Last Thursday of November … or whatever you’re celebrating today. I actually celebrated Thanksgiving with my brother and his three generation family yesterday evening. It was a rather large gathering with 13 adults and three little ones. I was there as Uncle Bob, the first son of the first son of the first son and the oldest living member of our branch of the family tree and name. And that will get you absolutely nothing. As a single gentleman, I get a lot of invitations to family gathering. And for that, I’m very thankful.

And we only had to join four tables to do it.DSC08371And this was the turkey my brother and sister-in-law prepared.DSC08373

All the sides and extras were prepared by the other members of the family at the dinner. I made the dinner rolls and my mother’s heirloom Thanksgiving dish … Carrot and Pineapple Orange Gelatin Salad. It was featured at all the family Thanksgiving dinners of the past.

And it was a great family gathering and a really blessed Thanksgiving.

A hungry crow on turkey day? I really don’t get the connection, but I did fold it as best I could.  Photographing it was another matter.HungryCrow

Pretend that it is opening and closing. Thank you.

  1. I almost never cook a turkey, but I just made one for Tom’s birthday dinner at his request. It came out good! Now begins the great turkey leftover onslaught.
