Bird is the Word

On the turntable-

In the oven-

Today we spoke to Johnno over the internet using Skype (FREE! I'm thankful for free!) He's doing Thanksgiving with about 20 or so of his friends. They got a 27 pound bird in the oven- he made an apple pie and people are bringing side dishes. Sounds like fun but I wish he was home.
We woke up at 5:30am to put our turkey in. If I had to prep the raw turkey- we'd be having frozen pizza for dinner. I'm a total carnivore but I could turn vegetarian every time I handle raw meat. So Tim wakes up with me and rinses out the turkey while I stand behind him and make retching noises. Ah- holiday traditions. Tim's parents and one of his sisters are coming for dinner at 1:30. We eat early because his parents like to be home before dark. Hope you all enjoy your day!
Happy Thanksgiving!

So have you seen that movie Alice's Restaurant? I had no idea there was a movie until yesterday, but now I am curious.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I don't like handling the raw turkey either, but I do it.
