Wishing everyone a festive holiday!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all south of us. We had ours already last month!
Yep, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Unfortunately, I am under the weather, which is pretty rare for me, with sinus stuff and a cough. Since my mom isn’t in the best of health, I decided it would be best to keep my distance and skip the family celebration.
Very sorry to heat that, Steve_O. You made the right decision.
Hope you get well very soon.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I hope you feel better soon Steve

I make cranberry fridge jam on occasion just for toast. I love it!
Unfortunately, my brother in law’s kid picked up a stomach bug, special delivery all the way from FL, by his girlfriend’s sister’s family.
The kid brought it home to my mother in laws place on thanksgiving and was puking everywhere about once every 4hrs.
Nobody else caught it. Except me. Saturday and Sunday were not fun.
Other People’s Kids…
I don’t remember ever getting sick as a kid (or even an adult) at all the big gatherings my grandparents did. Don’t make em like they used to, I guess.
Didn’t do much this year. A duck stuffed with cinnamon apples instead of a turkey and home grown sweet potatoes and homemade bread. And a Northern Spy Pie
I don’t remember anyone being sick like that at big family events either. Now, everyone seems sick all the time. Just more reasons why I avoid peopling
