Hope this day finds everyone well and best wishes to all as we come into the holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Jack! What Gruen are you bringing to the dinner table?

Me, I'll probably go with the rose gold Captain.

No exclusions! You are welcome at my table/watch bench any time.

Jack, all fine. Just was in the mood to complain and I hope you got the smiley. I know that only US citizens are celebrating today and that is why you sent greetings to all Americans. Thanksgiving traditionally is the most important friends and family event in the US and we are not celebrating this day here at all.
So enjoy the day my friends!

Hard not to enjoy when there is week-day afternoon alcohol consumption involved. Makes dealing with the family all the easier.

Zum Wohl!

Happy Thanksgiving to our friends south of the border!

Time, even vintage time, goes too fast for my tastes.

That's today at my house. I brined and deep fried a turkey and made 15 pounds of mashed potatoes for my sister-in-law's Thanksgiving feast yesterday. Today I'm marinating four pounds of skirt steak, juicing 25 limes for a ton of tacos and margaritas for friends at my own house, and currently settling in for an afternoon nap before the festivities. Thanksgiving is great, but the day after you get to do whatever you like.
