Big Bird day

Thanksgiving dinner at the Moohoos was tasty and we had fun. The turkey was plenty big enough, the stuffing delicious, the gravy lumpless, the cranberry bread just right, and I think everyone had plenty of food. We had three pies (pumpkin, apple, and pumpkin cheese cake) to go around to just five pie eaters, somewhat more than half a pie each. There are lots of appetizing leftovers. Even after the usual turkey sandwich later in the day. There was, and is, much to be thankful for.

We played a couple of word games, too. There was a new game called Bananas (I think) and several rounds of Boggle. The two pro football games demanded some attention, but I'm not even sure who was playing at the moment. I think there was a third game beginning this evening.

At about seven the snows began. It looked like it might be one of those freaky November storms that fills the streets with snow drifts, but it looks like it was just a warning shot. It tapered off after a while and left just wet pavement. The real winter has yet to arrive, but it doesn't appear to be many days off.

It was a nice traditional Thanksgiving.

The turkey looks great!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones from your Michigan family.

Still no photos of people! I guess the bird is the most important part of the Thanksgiving meal and deserves the most attention. We were thankful you and UH could be with us. Thanks for the pies and the game playing.

That bird looks mouth-wateringly good, and coming from someone whose not a fan of turkey as much as trukey with other goodies like stuffing.

I ate chicken, chapati, beans, vegetables, and a banana for Thanksgiving this year. It's almost the same as I usually eat here. Can't wait to make pies when i come home!
