Happy Thanksgiving!

It's a bright, sunny (cold) and beautiful day!  Linda is standing up much straighter and is actually going to go for a local trail walk.  Definitely not a run and no serious hiking though.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who loves to cook and eat all the traditional TD foods.  Well, not the real traditional foods.  The early celebrators ate venison, duck, cabbage, seafood, onions and corn.. but no mention of turkey.  Mashed potatoes weren't even invented yet!  Plus, Thanksgiving was a week long feast and not just one meal.  According to this source, they used spoons and knives but no forks.  They ate with their hands.  Don't feel bad if you are one of those people who like to pick up the drumstick and gnaw away at the table.  You're just following tradition! 

Linda slipped some extra chicken into our breakfast this morning as a treat.  Chim and I made scarfing sounds while we were eating.  Both of us licked our bowls clean for a few minutes after they were empty. We are very, very thankful that we are so loved and well fed.  Now its time for a nap.  I'm going to hide so Linda doesn't make me walk outside in the cold.
