Happy Thanksgiving in the USA

Guard Dog

Recommended Posts

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Americans out there. Happy Thursday to the rest of you fine folks. Hope it's a good one. 

I'm making split pea soup in the crock pot and fresh bread later. We usually have a pretty big party at the VFW but we decided to cancel this year with everything going on. 

See? It's ok to be smart and take precautions! It's when the government says "Thou shalt do thus or else" that I get my hackles up.

Happy Thanksgiving US members , I know these are dark times with the pandemic and its impact but the good news is I absolutely believe things will get better in the US around the virus with Biden as president

But then everyone gets ****ed because you have legions of idiots.

Also grateful for no US workers today, means I can have a quiet day and catch up on work. (read : go play WoW)

Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the day.  People keep saying 2021 simply cannot be worse than this year.  Makes me cringe.  If it gets any worse next year, this may be the last Thanksgiving before the comet hits the earth or the zombie apocalypse or whatever the hell's going to happen.

I can't eat potatoes/stuffing anymore.   😢  Well, maybe a bite...
Makes me miss Boston Market. We used to go to one for Thanksgiving. They've mostly disappeared here tho.  I used to cook (small) turkeys just for us but became fed up with the frozen store things that took 20000000000 hours to thaw out.  Plus our current gas oven sucks.

Anyway ... when I was a kid at the family dinners my mother did this thing where everyone would get a card and we'd write down a few things we were thankful for that year, and then she'd read them all before dinner.  So ...

---I'm alive, fairly healthy, not quite wealthy and ... wise.  Well, 2.5 out of four ain't bad...
--the camaraderie of this forum that makes it a place I like to hang out is always appreciated, too.

Cheers all.  *raises glass*
