    May everyone have a memorable time today with your loved ones. Eat much, watch some football, give the wood gathering a break ;-P and don't forget to thank the wife for all she has done to make this happen. I love this holiday. It's like the calm before the storm for me. Only thing missing - it's too warm for a fire today. Maybe tonight. :) Happy Thanksgiving All!!!!!

    And a happy Thanksgiving to all of you as well. This kind of thread is exactly why we created the Inglenook forum, so I'll go ahead and move it over there. Rick

    Hope all had a good turkey day-we went to my mom's this year. I actually relish the challenge of preparing the big feast but we'll need a bigger house before that happens! This year was memorable for a few reasons. It was my daughter's first:

    We also had her baptism right after Thanksgiving mass-just a small thing with the family. This Thanksgiving was also my brother's last with us, at least for a while. He leaves for Navy boot camp at Great Lakes, Illinois in March and then the real work starts. He has a five year contract and is going to try to become a SEAL and will be heading off to Coronado Island in California. Now it's time for a little morning quiet-mom and baby are asleep, the dog is on the couch beside me, and there's a nice fire going in the furnace. Life is good.

    We had some of the crew over for dinner.
    Webwidow and I at the far end.
    To our left are one daughter and one son
    To our right is son in law, granddaughter, daughter...and my bro (his GF sits across from him).

    I was lucky to get all at one time - what with the baby always wanting to walk elsewhere, etc.
    The remote control for the camera came in handy....

    Well, I never did get a picture of the the thanksgiving table, but here are 2 of the family dogs that seem to have their full attention on thanksgiving dinner cooking ;-P Sons and daughters, a little wine, in the kitchen......wish I could pass along the smells and the warm feelings. This was a special Thanksgiving for me!!! Most of you know why. :)
