Yes. Tortoises live such a long life it's like losing a grandmother even a great grandmother. That's a really hard loss. 🤗More than fifty years of memories and I may add to my new thread. Now it is just me and Jacky but I still say good morning and goodnight to Daisy and Jacky's awake I also mention TT and yesterday I needed to do it most of all.
Im only hoping I get 14 people.because I bought a 16 lb turkey. 🥴Eeek and I hate leftovers. Maybe I can pawn some of it off on them. Do you have an eight foot table?🙏🤗The w/e was all about getting the house in order for Thanksgiving. She starts with the familiar "You need company to make yourself do a good cleaning" thing that we've all heard. I know she learned that from her mother because my kids did too, from theirs! Her son came over and raked & mowed the front yard for her. That was pretty cool. I did outside stuff while letting her do inside stuff for the holidays.
Thanksgiving will be fun.....I can't hardy wait! The sociological aspect of gathering a bunch of folks....like a big petri dish of personalities!
The count for Thanksgiving has jumped to 15. Her son is bringing his girlfriend, her dad and her brother. She lives with "mom" but her folks don't get along, at all. I met her Dad once when he came over to help her son move. I would never have done that but it was a help to me that he did. I wonder how he will react to seeing my ex and Kerry being friends. Maybe he will see there really isn't need for hate/anger after aking this week off and thankfully, he left me noth
You can't believe how finicky Dilly is about what he'll eat. He likes his kibble mainly. But he'll eat his Fancy feast. However, it has to be salmon, tomatoes, carrots, and spinach. I use 1/3 can daily with a capsule of Zylkene when he needs physco medicine. And he does right now. He'll eat little bites of turkey maybe 🤔 he won't eat Fancy Feast unless it has his medicine on it! Is that ridiculous or what 😁I bet Dilly would love the leftovers.

I am admiring my work:
Well no ..now the bird is just thawing in the fridge. . I hope and pray a frozen bird is heavier than a thawed out one.🙃 I saw a cooking thing on the news today that said the turkey cooks better on the lowest part of the oven you can do. That recipe had you sit the pan on the oven floor. I usually do the lowest rack setting anyway. Once I get it in the oven it's all downhill. Whatever possessed me 🤔 to buy a 16 lb. Turkey 🦃 eeekLOL...good for you! 14 is a lot to do by yourself, you already started, right? I hope the others are bringing dishes for you guys....
family and friends will stay to cleanup, "guests" do not....
I agree on the table. There comes a point where passing all those plates of stuff around the table would require a 16' table! Most dining rm tables only seat 10/12 if you add leafs!
God Bless Buffet style! LOL
God bless the "kids table"
Kerry is bumming a 6ft'er already and we moved this cabinet thingy from the kitchen to the dining room wall as the top opens to a 5' table, add that to the adjacent kitchen island & counters....she's good to go.
Question.....if you have two ovens, stacked......and you are cooking turkey and beef at the same time, which would you put on top? Does it matter?
I'm thinking turkey on top just b/c of it's weight.
DON'T SQUEEZE the CHARMIN!
(the result of years of conditioning)
Now if my friend from the UK "gets it", I'll be impressed....and no fair googling. LOL
I've decided to make my brother put his muscles where his mouth is and stick the dang turkey in the oven when I get it ready for baking. As it turns out I'm going to have a full house later. I'll let my son take it out after I play around with it all day.🥴 and suck him into carving too 😁Bottom oven, bottom rack....ok.
I'm envisioning poor Ms Cathie, wrestling a 20lb package of bird, stuffing and God knows what into the oven.....
Well, work is bagged for tomorrow. I woke 45 minutes ago with a headache. We have to draw a line in the sand. Dealing with sleep depravation I can do but not in combo with a headache and not in sloppy, rainy weather we have outside, on the day before Thanksgiving and if you haven't already heard it enough, let me bang it out for you one more time- "Which we all know is the The Busiest travel day of the Year!"
I kinda messed up...I want to get out early and go over to Kerry's but I made a Dr Chiro appointment for 330 this afternoon....now though, with the way I feel.....Come on 330!
I'm going to go look for some bullets...well just one................
I'm teasing folks....
hi there!Good morning all. I am hoping that you all have a very blessed thanksgiving in the states … and a just a blessed day if you are else where. I am thankful for all of my family and friends Today & everyday. Eat good!!
The Malaysian way is to rub turmeric around it.I've decided to make my brother put his muscles where his mouth is and stick the dang turkey in the oven when I get it ready for baking.
