turkeys look best on thanksgiving day

I realize that I am so very behind the times here with our holidays but lots of things happen and it is what it is I'm afraid. 

Our Thanksgiving was pretty normal as far as Thanksgivings go. My uncles and aunt and cousins come down from New York and football is on and lots of meats and cheese are put out and the kids make a racket and that's just how holidays are with us. I still get such a kick out of seeing my younger cousins watch my three. All very full circle. The only thing missing from our day was our semi-annual Turkey Trot. I tried very hard to convince the group that this was necessary but ended up trotting on my own terms in my basement in the morning instead of outside with thousands of others. Maybe next year it will come back?

As per the usual, Cornelius made his arrival after dinner. And what a disappointment that was. I stressed about the arrival and the display and then because there was no gift the kids just turned heel and went back into the house. Just like that. Bah humbug. Perhaps his days are numbered?

Letty took my camera for awhile. I'm not sure where she gets the whole take a photo looking down at her shoes thing. Not sure at all. 

Something really amazing and funny happened during the football game but as I am allergic to football I don't know what that thing was. I just stayed by my best friend for the night, a bottle of Pinot Noir. I think next time the Merlot would be the better choice. She's a better listener. Anyways.... How was your thanksgiving? Almost two weeks ago?

Past Trovato Thanksgivings here and here.

  5. Hi dear, I like your post so much, and it is very good. Hope that we can communicate with each other. I want to introduce a Free Data Recovery Software, I try it and I feel it is so good to us beginners.

  6. What a sweet home. Honestly, last Thanksgiving and Christmas, I was alone for some urgent works. These beautiful pictures are really sweet. So, in return, you may need free photo recovery software which works well for me.
    Thanks for your post.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
