We met my brother & his wife, along with my sister at a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner.
That way, nobody had to cook or clean and everything was simpler.
But overall, it was OK. Nothing special but there's much to be said for simple.


Good for you both! Keep it simple....as long as it's enjoyable!

I_fling_poo: She's from Oklahoma and if you know anything about Southern cooking


OHBOYOHBOY...do I know? My Mom was from Mississippi. Everything was fried in lard, and then she made gravy out of everything! But I could never handle the giblet gravy...sorry. I made her make one without the "guts" in it. :D

What a cat who had too much turkey might look like. (although he didn't have his yet)

EarlyGreen is right! Regret my lateness.
Turkey roast & other traditional noms to be shared with The Resident Mob tomorrow; it wasn't thawed enuf to go ahead & cook in time for dinner.
Karl & Lily are handsome & lovely, M3. Good kids to let you live with them, as well.
tigerose, of course Eli should have his very own plate at the table! Our late loved Cheeky had her own with the Savages in British enlisted family quarters in W Berlin when she & they were all young. She also had her own little boy whose 1st name I forget at the moment, who insisted she have it!

Re black or part-black cats, as in the winning tale/tail this wk, I need to find or fetch different pix of the also late loved FredThe Coonies are dark but not black, & Piiki's not that dark either.

When I was younger, I didn't care for the gravy's extra ingredients. Now I don't mind as much.

Polk salad, fried deer meat, fried okra and chocolate cream pies were usually on the menu when we went to visit them in Oklahoma.

tigerose: akimbotoo: The Ice Queen: ">tigerose: Quantum_jellyroll looks like you have been "friended". She must have been owned at some point to be so friendly. Maybe she wants you to love her and pet her and call her George? :)

Did someone say George.....


[i1210.photobucket.com image 850x478] 

My George :)


Of course it made me think about the nursery rhyme: Georgie, porgie, puddin', & pie. Kissed the girls and made them cry. ;D

Ok, so now I have to tell the "Parrot" tale. My great Grandma lived on a farm. She always made Sunday dinner. One time she invited the minister, and introduced him to her Parrot, who knew that nursery rhyme..only this time the bird kept repeating, "Georgie Porgie Puddin and pie, kissed the girls and made them" try as she might she could not get the bird to finish the phrase. No one knows what the Preacher thought! But I bet he was scandalized!



Funny! What kind of parrot?

what is that? I've heard of "poke" salad, but not that...is it the same thing?
 
2012-11-22 08:58:44 PM  
OH! And I can't stand okra.....Mom always made me eat it, but when I got a little older, I said no way...yuck!
 
2012-11-22 08:59:41 PM  
But I love deer meat! Any kind of venison...deer, elk, whatever!
 
2012-11-22 09:02:17 PM  
living where I do...Pacific Northwest..there are a lot of people who like to hunt, and fortunately for me, they are willing to share their "harvest" with me! I love to have a small fried deer steak (tenderloin) with some fried potatoes with onions! OH MAN! Good stuff....

Note Not Made, re Furry McLovin & q_j. Does she get to sorta stay, or just visit? Remains to be seen ...
Turkey described on evening TV news here, wrapped in bacon, stuffed with onions & oranges. Om nom nom!
Over last day or 2 I've collected gosh-awfully-many linkies. Link, mayhap predictably all from Care2. 9 by actual count. Also a quote from there: Everyone I know refers to a group of kittens as a "litter," however the proper term is "kindle." Cherise Udell, in the cat knowledge quiz she put forth in early Sept. They're called Feline Muse collectively.

gremlin1: Since I got home Gremie has been following me around, rubbing against me, head butts and talking since I walked in the door. My n54788++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++\7 Gremie says "Hello."
My niece has a Golden Retriever and Gremie takes great offense to Sadie having the nerve to get her scent on me. Jack was one sniff and "oh, you're home."


Cat like typing detected! :) Eli doesn't care if I love up the therapy dog at work...as long as he is fed, he is happy! And as long as I get up when he thinks I should be up..this morning he nipped my bicept, as I was half an hour late getting out of bed..that would be 6:30am...ugh..I did not get up!

Hai, everybody! Hope everyone had/is having a great Thanksgiving!

Oh, holy Ceiling Cat, I'm full! Went to the brother-in-law's for dinner. We had...turkey, spinach stuffing, sausage stuffing, harvest stuffing, cornbread and sausage stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, green bean casserole, creamed onions, carrots, red cabbage, gravy, canned cranberry sauce and homemade cranberry sauce. Dessert was apple pie, pumpkin pie, apple cider doughnuts, pumpkin bread, cranberry bread, whipped cream and cookies. I may never eat again!

Ah....so, when I first open the "photo sharing place", it will cooperate. But if I leave it open and try to do another photo, it says "no...not for you". Or, it will lock up my whole system.....
So....this is Lily. She's coming out to say "Hai".

Stuffed here too, went to my sister's house and ate lots of yummy food. Cretinbob had to work, so he missed out on dinner. He works almost every holiday, on purpose. After reading all the hoopla on Facebook about boycotting companies who make their employees work on holidays, I just shake my head. My mom used to have to work holidays, so did Cretinbob and I. It wasn't the end of the world, really.

We also have some "Black" Friday kitty deals, we'll be at Petco this weekend where I hope some of these cuties will be noticed and adopted.
Raven Link has a potential adopter.
Nova Link is new here.
Coco Link has been here a while. All her kittens were adopted, but like most momma cats, sticks around because people usually want kittens and not adults.
Paco and Pepe Link one photo, identical brothers!

Lots of nice black kitties waiting for new homes.

Speaking of that...does anyone else do a "theme" or specific color for Christmas besides me? I've done that ever since I worked in a floral shop years ago.....I always do my tree in a different color each year.

I love visiting with the Petco and PetSmart kitties whenever I am in the store. I don't like it though when one of the kitties is out of food or water. I always have to tell the manager to be sure that it gets fixed immediately.

My mom used to do that, she was on a red/gold kick for a while when I was a kid. Only red and gold balls on the tree.
My trees have always just been a collection of whatever I put on them, usually the kids ornaments. 

What's this flood protection crap again???

Wow they let bowls get empty? The Petco I bring the cats to has had complaints when the bowls aren't filled to the top! We've put huge bowls in the cat rooms and fill them so people don't complain.

Yeah, I'm getting the flood protection too,but I was expecting it. counter is weird it's not going down right. Sometimes if we are posting at the same time it will trigger, but that's when we are in the house using the same IP. Maybe they changed something else.
