Gobble gobble

There's an 18 pound turkey on the counter in the kitchen. Soon I'll load it into my car, along with many other ingredients, and head off to my sister's where I'll spend the night so I can get up bright and early and roast the bird.

Much, but sadly, not all, of the family is gathering tomorrow for the feast.

It's sort of a stone-soup kind of thing. I'm doing the bird, stuffing, and gravy. Sister One has the bread, some veggies, and the pretend milk. Sister Two more veggies. Mom is doing other side dishes and her World Famous Apple Pies.

We're gonna miss Brother One and his crew. He, or rather his car, is still recovering from its encounter with a deer in the headlights. We'll be thinking of them up there in the snow.

Anyway, time to get a move on. There's eatin' to be done.

Happy T-Day.
