Happy Thanksgiving Everybody

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the 'States. What this means is today is a day we take off from work, spend time with our families, and eat lots of turkey (usually.) I hope that your stuffed roasted turkey came out better looking than these birds!

Actually, we have a tradition in my family that we eat chicken, and today I did just that. I ate chicken. I didn't just eat chicken, no, instead somehow the big carving tray of chicken got placed right down in front of me at the table, and so I ate chicken and ate chicken and ate chicken. Sure, I had some mashed potatoes and stuffing too, plus some veggies, but I really somehow managed to eat a glorious amount of chicken. Really, just chicken, me, eat - it somehow just happened. All of the chicken just *poof* magically vanished. I'm still not quite sure how this happened. I usually just have a piece or two but, nope, not today. Today was a chicken feast!

I'm sure there will be more jokes about this chicken "stuff down" to follow, as there were many today we enjoyed while sitting around the dining room table. I guess that's part of the fun of the holiday season as well. Making lots of new jokes. We also got to watch the wonderful Thanksgiving Day parade from New York, so that was a treat too. I love the parade floats and balloons although (apparently) not as much as I love me some chicken!

Hopefully you got to enjoy a lot of turkey (or chicken, lots and lots of it!) and a lot of new jokes on the side today too, since making new memories is what's it's all about.

Until next time...
