  • Thanksgiving traditions

    I was reading a newspaper article today about Thanksgiving traditions and saw one I really liked- the pre and post meal weighing! As long as it does not turn into a competiton, I think this could be great. Even if no one else here does this, I plan to.

    My express goal is how many new belt notches I can discover.

      Re: Thanksgiving traditions

      my daughter in law sent us one of those things that get passed along via email. Don't usually read em. I think we're gonna start this one this year:

      One year at Thanksgiving, my mom went to my

      sister's house for the traditional feast. Knowing

      how gullible my sister is, my mom decided to

      play a trick. She told my sister that she needed

      something from the store.

      When my sister left, my mom took the turkey out of

      the oven, removed the stuffing, stuffed a Cornish hen,

      and inserted it into the turkey, and re-stuffed the

      turkey. She then placed the bird(s) back in the oven.

      When it was time for dinner, my sister pulled the

      turkey out of the oven and proceeded to remove the

      stuffing. When her serving spoon hit something,

      she reached in and pulled out the little bird.

      With a look of total shock on her face, my mother

      exclaimed, "Patricia, you've cooked a pregnant

      bird!" At the reality of this horrifying news,

      my sister started to cry

      It took the family two hours to convince her that

      turkeys lay eggs!

      Yep..................SHE'S BLONDE!

        Mine: go to work and get 14 hours work done in 6, with nobody out there to bother me on the phone or e-mail. Works doubly well at Xmas.

          Our extended family usually goes hiking on Friday morning to burn off some of the calories!

            Works fine unless someone else has the same idea. Then it devolves into blowing off one hour for lunch, which turns into three!

              3-hour lunch already programmed for today. In fact, it may be time for a breakfast beer!

                    I go over to my nearby brother's house about 3. No need to cook, but I do the drinks.

                    First, and most important of all the Sapphire very dry martinis.

                      Leaving for our son's place 90 miles away for about as routine American Thanksgiving as could be imagined. Some eating, some drinking, some football, some Badger basketball.

                      Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

                        Used to partake in one of America's oldest traditions when I lived in Ohio. The second oldest roadrace in America (Boston is oldest) is the Covington (Ft. Thomas?), KY to Cincinnati Thanksgiving Day race. Used to be an odd distance (7.8mi?) and run over the Ohio River. Think it is now a standard 10k? First half was slightly downhill, second half slightly uphill.

                            The family football game in the field across the street. I'm the QB and my son is the receiver. My son is a HS receiver making life easier on the QB. Only problem...daughter's boyfriend is a college DB making life miserable for the QB.

                            It was a tough, hard fought battle....particularly between the two guys who actually play football with a purpose. In the end, however, we all sat down and ate dinner together.
