No Turkey for You!


Ah yes, Thanksgiving 2005 was a memorable occasion at our house. We dined on crushed ice flavored ever so slightly with anti-acids and anti-diarrhea medicine. We gathered together, huddled under blanket is mutual misery, stomachs cramping as we watched our plans to eat turkey and stuffing in the company of extended family was literally flushed down the drain.
That was our holiday.
How was yours?
So today I am thankful that the bug is passed, we still have turkey in the refrigerator and although we won’t be going north to visit my mother, sister, brother and all their offspring, we will be eating turkey, one day late.
Let’s hope our battered systems can handle it.

We missed you! So sorry you couldn't come. It was great to have those who came but we felt your absence and Kerry's also. Our goldfish also had tummy aches. Someone dumped half a can of fish food in the tank. They are on a forced fast (at least no NEW food) for a few days and the filter quickly filled up with excess food. They are seven years old now and we hope to make 8, but when they go I won't mourn. I'll quickly give away all fish paraphinal parafina---stuff and heave a sigh of relief. Good luck and we hope you are better soon.

Big bummer. It wasn't the same not having you there. Still we were 18 in wyo sis's house that's not enough without you four and the fireman. Get better and rest up.

Oh my heck, Alleen! I'm so so sorry that you got the bug over the big day! I've missed your blog for a few days and was thinking about you yesterday while I was cooking. Just thought, "Alleen will be driving two blocks from my house to get to Preston!" I'm sorry that you missed it! FEEL BETTER AND ENJOY the rest of the weekend!
