Happy Thanksgiving 2012

And you all expected a picture of a turkey!

And a few more...they are low growing plants, not really bushes.  The bog aspect comes in only during the harvest when they flood the "bog" to skim off the floating cranberries.

Cubby's Questions:

Do you travel or stay local? Family or Friends? Host or Guest?  Went to Sis's at the shore about 45 miles.  Just Leon, Sis and me.  I cooked the Turkey meal yesterday and packaged it up to reheat there. 
Parade: Love it? Leave it? Never let it go? Saw part of the Parade on reruns, later in the PM.  Boring. 
Favorite Food?  Turkey, stuffing, mashed potato, butternut squash, sweet potato - love it all. This year, due to low turnout, I skipped the fennel and mushooms in bechamel and the rutabaga.  I also had a store bought pie, ugh.
Favorite holiday movie or do you watch football?  No movie, NO football.  We took a nice walk on the beach. 
If you do holiday decorations, for which holiday and when?  Holiday decor...bah humbug.  Leon might do some lights. 
Bonus Question - People traditionally give thanks on Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for? Thankful for our health, for having a house that didn't get washed away, for being able to pay the bills and still have money to eat.


  1. That's the one thing I missed this year... the cranberries. Thanks for no turkey shots!
