Thanksgiving

I'm sitting here watching one of the many parades that's on TV today, and I'm not really sure why. We never did the parade thing when I was growing up. My dad was a pilot so whenever we did a turkey for Thanksgiving, he would leave the next day on a trip and my mom and I would be stuck with all the leftovers, and he would have it for maybe one day. This was always especially amusing because my mom found out that she's actually allergic to turkey. I've never liked it (or ham for that matter), so it's always been interesting here. My dad's birthday is this coming Sunday, so he is a Turkey. At least we've always called him that. He loves turkey. So it's caused just a bit of tension in my house. But since my dad is sick and can't do any of the cooking, my mom and I overrule him. So, we're having prime rib today. Especially since the last few years we've gone out to eat with friends, and my dad didn't want to do that this year. So he really can't have turkey this year. He's just completely S.O.L. I don't feel sorry for him. (OK, maybe a little, but I really don't like turkey.)



Question of the Day: How are you spending Thanksgiving? (A little more normal question today, but hey, it's a holiday....)
