Happy Thanksgiving Canadian readers! US readers; yes, we have Thanksgiving in Canada. ;-)

As this weekend approached it was looking as though I would be alone this year for Turkey day. Not that I cared overly much. I can deal with the thought of not eating unparalleled amounts of turkey and mashed at Thanksgiving - Christmas however - I'm a bit of a fan of that particular holiday. It's my favorite - don't really know why. At Christmas I annually gain 2 or 3 pounds in one sitting. My family views gravy as a beverage and at Christmas - we drink a lot. lol.

Well, it appears that though my parents had initially intended to go south of the border to view a boat (you know, they intend to abandon me and sail around the world next year.... boo) but - plans have changed. They will be here and my father is going to prepare this weekends feast. I like that idea since my Dad and I - we like the wine - so I know there will be plenty. *joy* And Frank Sinatra and Norah Jones will be playing on the radio. As usual though, my family will try to tempt me with the always gross and disgusting pumpkin pie. I gag just thinking about this. I am deeply offended that someone put a vegetable in a pie and called it dessert (ah, finally I put 2 s's in dessert).

You know what would be great? If all the people that you loved could just *poof* be with you for a holiday. Regardless of where in the world they are or what they are doing - they would just appear my magic at your table. THAT would be quite an evening. I think that would easily take the place of the afore mentioned favorite holiday.

SO on I babble. My point - have a great weekend! Thanksgiving or otherwise. I'll be giving thanks this year for many things.

I love me some Thanksgiving, but it is 78 degrees out there today. Not nearly chilly enough for Thanksgiving.

I'll stick to our last Thursday of November version. Thank you very much.

Oh...and comment moderation? Blech!

elizabeth said...

Anon - ThANk you.

Earl - Yeah. Tis a bit warmer than usual.

comment moderation - got some strange people who worship Charlie Pride leaving me comments asking me to disrobe. So... sorry ;-(

They showed up on my blog too. It looked like they found us through Spinning Girl or somewhere and they were just posting on everyone's sites saying the same things.

I don't get it.

elizabeth said...

Yep. Didn't get it myself. Didn't mind until they asked me to take my clothes off. Now moderation. Sadly.

Gia said...

Haven't Slyde or I asked you to take your clothes off before?

If we haven't, then I apologize.
