Turkey Day Tomorrow

Thanksgiving is tomorrow!
Our preparations continue for the meal of the year. I'm glad we don't have to go out and find our turkey like this man. Sure looks like he's in trouble. Our turkey is safe in the refrigerator thawing gently and waiting to be put in the oven early Thanksgiving morning.

I'm going to share our menu with you. But before you read it you might want to watch your drool so you don't hurt your computer.
Here's our menu:
  • Roast Turkey
  • Baked Ham
  • Homemade Gravy
  • Hot homemade rolls
  • Homemade Dressing
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Green beans or peas
  • Sweet whole kernel corn
  • Broccoli casserole
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Sweet potato casserole
  • Relish: Dills, olives, garlic
  • Pumpkin & Pecan Pies
  • Pound and chocolate cakes
  • Ice cream (variety of flavors)
You just take that extra chair and pull right up to the table. We'll eat in a minute, just wait till we say the blessing. Boy, that food sure looks good!

We're excited because tonight we will have Sylvia, Mandy and Alex with us. They will be driving to Kingsport from middle Tennessee late this evening.


I have added 2 new videos on my Support Our Troops page. Click on the Remember Me link. It's a wonderful video created by Lizzie Palmer, a 14 year old girl. Also, Click on If I Die Before You Wake, a soldier produced video which is moving and heart warming. Support Our Troops Every Day.

Quote of the Day
Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men;
but be careful that you do not take the day,
and leave out the gratitude.
~E.P. Powell

Jokes of the Day
A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says, "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man." The man then replies, "Yeah, well we were married 35 years."
