Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving has a happy day! This holiday is one of my favorites! Before I became a vegeterian, Turkey was my most favorite meat (well, it still is).

My Aunt Ruth and I used to go to Plainville Turkey Farm Restaurant every Thursday night. In my opinion, this restaurant in Cicero NY is the best restaurant around because it is as close to a homemade meal as you can get besides making dinner at home. Unfortunately Aunt Ruth (and Great Aunt Ruth) was killed in a car accident over ten years ago, and I still miss her terribly. Aunt Ruth used to go to my parents’ home every Thanksgiving and we would play games until the wee hours of the morning. Two of our favorite games were Jenga and Bingo. I don’t mean to get maudlin on this happy day! Here’s a photo of my Grandmother and Great Grandmother and someone else at Plymouth Rock (I haven’t fixed this in Photoshop yet):

I hope everyone enjoys this holiday, and gives thanks for their family, even though some of them can be a pain in the butt, because life is way too short. Enjoy!
