For me personally it may end up being a cold P.B and J and a fruit cup outta my lunch cooler.  Supposed to snow here wednesday so I might be out plowing roads while the family enjoys the turkey and all the fixin's.  I'm really hoping I am done by thursday morning and can get to enjoy the holiday with family.  If you have to travel stay safe out there everyone.

We sometimes forget the folks who are out there making sure we can get where we want to go! I do hope you can share the family meal when it is ready!

 

A BIG thank you for being one of those folks!

Just in case I get hungry , turkey will do . Lots of biscuits , mashed taters , vegetables ,fruit and pie for desert . A little fermented beveridge and some dark chocolate .

Later I will go outside and caress the old hog in its nest . Its feet need a little attention nothing major . It took a little convincing to get the hog loaded for the ride home . I'm gonna keep it .

The hog hasn't squealed for me yet . It's being a little shy .

I can so relate working holidays or weekends off. But in my case when I worked for TDOT we babysit wet roads anticipating frozen precip...rarely did I get to drop the plow. I'm still a state worker but have moved to the Tennessee Welcome Center on I-65 S at the TN/KY line. WE NEVER CLOSE! I'll be there Thanksgiving day and then off 3 days after.

We have a lot of family members who work for the county road commissions in a few different counties here in Northern Michigan. We know the sacrifice you give while making roads and streets safe for us to travel. Thank you for that and we hope you have a safe and good Thanksgiving while out clearing the roads.

Happy Thanksgiving IHCubGuy to you and your family.                                                                                                                               Roger.

Every N. Europian country had their version of pirogues. Ravioi, pasties, peroshkis, etc. Nebraska is known for Runzas which originated in the Volga region of Russia. They even sell Runzas in the Omaha airport.

 

And your asking yourself; what does this have to do with Thanksgiving??? Sorry!
