Fresh Turkey smoked upside down - AWESOME.
Standard stuffing - what you'd expect.
Green Bean Casserole - a perennial favorite.
Home made cranberry sauce - tart and sweet.
Fresh baked home made bread - just out of the oven.
Giblet gravy - my worst yet. What happened?!
Homemade pies and cakes - definitely above average.
One big tanker of Red Wine. Now empty.

My family stripped the turkey to the bone in about an hour - like piranhas had been at it.

Hardly anyone touched the gravy.

Had a great Thanksgiving with Aunt & Uncle, cousins & family.
Turkey with spoonbread & all the trimmings.

My 60 year old brother who sell shoes at the mall in Raleigh
had to work 7:00PM- 1:00AM on Thanksgiving Day! and then be
back to work by 8:00 the next morning! Couldn't travel to see
family as they are 3 hours away.
Just not right.

Jeff

Sorry Bro, slight miscalculation. Must have to do with your thanksgiving being a month late!

On a more serious note, we do have a lot to be thankful of on this continent; enjoy as much time with family and friends as you can as there is nothing more precious.

people who do not understand car culture are often curious. Easy answer is ask them what they have for a hobby, and tell them that tinkering with your old car is a hobby for you. If nothing else it teaches patience, discipline, and problem solving skills diagnosing a machine, all useful in other parts of life.

Ask him if sitting in front of the TV watching reality tv with his hand down his pants and his finger up his nose teaches the same life lessons.

On a less material note, I'm grateful to still have those ninety-odd year old grandparents and the rest of my large extended family here. They're wonderful people, and if you ever find yourself taking your family for granted, just watch a rerun of the Jerry Springer show and realize how lucky you actually are. (Unless your family appears in that episode. In which case, I'm sorry. Good luck.)

I only hope everyone had an equally good holiday.
140 mile drive for us with a mouth watering honey glazed ham and stuffing in the back of the wifes 300TD was almost unbearable.

Made it without incident, and even made it back without falling asleep! delicious ham, turkey, sweet potato, italian stuffing (italian sausage and ground beef with chestnuts), regular stuffing, green beans, various pies, and various finger foods consumed by all
