You have the song from Barry White playing in the back ground with a naked turkey standing in a roaster pan with gravy pouring over it......to really have a image in your mind.

Thank you all for sharing your stories and thoughts on this Thanksgiving day. Your posts certainly added to my day.

Hik, Pam & JoAnn, I so appreciate your well wishes. Warm & fuzzy wishes from some of the loving & caring people who live in the great state of Tennessee.

I have only been here for 1 year and unfortunately my travel has been limited due to my back issues. However, I plan on being on the road come Spring with my trusty GPS. Someday, I would love to meet all of you. Afterall, it is a breeze of a trip from Kingsport to Knoxville. Then, I will set my sights on the Plateau. Wow, I think I am day dreaming & rambling. So, I had better stop and let y'all have your dinner.

Blessings to all!

How did she do it? To this day, I don't know.

As I stood in my kitchen this afternoon, trying to figure out how to 'constantly stir the gravy' AND mash the potatoes at the same time, my thoughts were drawn back in time to childhood memories of Thanksgiving. And Mom.

The mother of 6 rambunctious kids (7 if you include my dad), she was able to put together a Thanksgiving Day feast for 8 people, sometimes 10 if her in-laws joined us, with very little help.

We kids were supposed to be in the living room watching the Macy's Day parade under the watchful eye of dad while mom did her magic in the kitchen. But of course, one or 2 of us were under foot, wanting to lick the beaters (back before we knew about samonella poisoning) or wanting a celery stick and even with all those distractions, Mom pulled it off.

A perfect Thanksgiving Day feast, with many blessings of having the family together and 4 of us fighting over the drumsticks.

By now, it's not just the turkey that's stuffed, right?

Happy Thanksgiving all.
