Why, it's Thanksgiving tomorrow.



Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in America. Here in England, I won't be doing up a Thanksgiving meal. Krip, while he says turkey is "okay," he isn't into sweet potatoes, rice and giblet gravy, nor pumpkin and pecan pies; and when I mentioned various "dressings" (such as oyster), he just looked at me like I was from another planet. So I do believe I will skip cooking up a meal. At any rate, since to me Thanksgiving is more with being with family and since my kids ARE my family and they are in the States, I tend to use tomorrow as a countdown day until my youngest gets over here for Christmas. What I lacked on Thanksgiving, I will more than make up on Christmas.

So, what I am trying to say to all my American blogger-friends, have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. And if you should have an extra piece of dark meat left over, or a slice of pumpkin or pecan pie, can you just kinda slip it in the mail for me?

Heh.

Thanks all. I think it can count if I go on the weekend, seeing as everyone else across the pond will be eating leftovers for the next week or so.

Oh, I hereby move to make David V an honorary yank.
