Thanksgiving is tomorrow here in the United States and I’m usually out of town with no internet access. This year is different, this year fate has told me to stay home with the family and enjoy the wonders of my neighborhood. As you know, this also allows me the chance to write a blog post and reflect what I should be thankful for.
Am I thankful for family, friends, or a great dinner?
Dinner brings on a set of interesting items to discuss. Now that friends and family know we are in town, our Thanksgiving dinner has ballooned from a reasonable dinner of eight to a huge dinner of 21-23 people. I assume the range of possible guest attending is due to the guest’s lack of commitment to our dinner. I really don’t mind a huge gathering because Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. No gifts involved but lots of food and good drink to make everyone healthy, wealthy, and wise. I feel like a Viking getting ready for a raid after I gouge myself on a turkey dinner and fine drink.
Ready the oars!
I’m also fortunate to have a wife who knows how to cook a turkey and other side dishes. The meal will be worth it.
So enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner and enjoy the time with your friends and family. That’s if you can stand your family.
