A happy and healthy holiday to you all. I am thankful for all the friendship shown to me on this subforum.

I am cooking a turkey today. I have not had turkey in years. Except for last year, I've spent most of the last few Thanksgivings, Canadian and American, in Canada with just one another person. We usually had a roast turkey or duck.

Last year I spent American Thanksgiving with my vegetarian daughter, who did the cooking. No turkey.

This year I have four of us plus a fat feline who would like some turkey, so I am making a smallish one!

MQ; thank you for the holiday wishes and the same back to you and your loved ones.

We spent yesterday enjoying a 'huuuuge' turkey dinner cooked by our niece. We haven't enjoyed many thanksgivings with family over the last couple of decades due to having already left for our winter home in Florida.

This year was especially poignant for us in that we sold our place down there last winter

Our feelings the last few days have been measured with viewing every day in the news and from friends smart phone vids the utter devastation of the coastal communities along the gulf coast. Our area of Lakeland Fla. avoided major damage but nevertheless, you don't need to drive far to see the terrible carnage of that storm. So many people and families having lost everything of any value to them.

We have been getting almost daily calls and emails with updates of the damage done to all of our old haunts. We can only imagine the toll this will take on the people in the forms of jobs lost along with costs of those properties destroyed.

So our thanksgiving is tempered significantly by having enjoyed so many years of winters in that area to realize it has now been so tragically changed forever.

A picture of Canadian troops at Thanksgiving Mass in 1918. Van Doos, perhaps?

Thank you!

I declared that we are having my choice of dinner today, since it's American Thanksgiving and all.

I want the veggie burger from Montana's. BEST veggie burger EVER. BF can swallow fried fish, so I'll get that for him, and sorta-stepsons can choose what they want. My treat.

Last year I went back to the States and had Thanksgiving with my daughter. This year she is in Disney World with a friend and his family.
