    Likewise. :)

    I'll be having relatives over, and my parents have been cooking like maniacs downstairs. Luckily, we have a big enough dinner table for the various feasts, but not a big enough kitchen. [​IMG]

    In case you ask how I feel about turkey, see below.

    Happy B-Day to dukestreet's wife.

    I also extend a Happy Thanksgiving to Mac Forum Members.

    My wife & I are going to Cape Cod, my father-in-law prefers taking us out to a resturant.

    My like is planning to buy a turkey to fix at home later, like having the leftovers. :)

    I'm prolly gonna have a boca burger ;) and lots of side dishes. Mashed potatoes and gravy are my favorite side dish! Well, who doesn't like mashed potatoes and gravy? I mean how can you NOT like mashed potatoes? Well, I'd like everyone to enjoy their mashed potatoes and gravy. Peace out.

    Then what's your mom? Anyway, you should support your own beliefs rather it be on the side of Democrats or Republicans or maybe even ¿OTHER?. It doesn't hurt to be a Democrat ;) though.

    al256 do you have your gravy specially made, the gravy that I've seen is made from the turkey, using fat & some of the meat. Its great over the dressing & sweet potatoes also!

    Buchannan would be a great president! He always says what he means, like John Mcain an his straight talk express. We would have our current immigration problems, his 1st order of business would have been to close the borders.

    We went over to some friends for dinner and spent the whole evening with then - what a feast - but their dog nabbed the leftovers! The bowl with all the extra turkey (quite a lot) was on the counter and before anyone could do anything the dog had jumped up and dumped the lot of it on the floor and ran off with a large slice !! Damn funny actually. So we got to take home half of the leftover turkey for our dog - she was quite happy to get a couple piece when we got home. :D

    I hope everyone else had as much fun! :D

    it was a beautimous day here in southern cali...don't know if i'll ever get used to wearing shorts and a t-shirt on thanksgiving...and hearing the music from the ice cream truck as it drives up the street in late november...

    me , the mrs and the little one walked to one of our favorite local eateries... with my 2yr old daughter saying " habbee tanksgimmee" to everyone she passed. a quick meal and then off to the park to play.

    a simple and special day for which i am truly thankful.

    hope everyone else's day was filled with joy.

    My mom is a big liberal 3rd party voter. If I had to call her something
    I would call her a modern day hippie. The bumper stickers on the
    back of our car say 'Vote your hopes not your fears: Vote third
    party', 'I SUPPORT ORGANIC FARMING'. and 'I am in support of a
    conscience evolution'. My mom is a funny girl :D.
