I was sick as a dog one Thanksgiving. Lil’ Miss had given me pneumonia not once but twice. I couldn’t get out of bed but managed to give 12 year old Lil’ Miss about three dinner instructions. She did the whole thing herself and I couldn’t have done any better.

I did the grocery shopping this afternoon and with a 21 lb turkey and all the sides, the grocery bill (including a guess at $5 for seasonings and other on hand pantry stuff) is just shy of $35. The turkey was $21 but nothing else was on sale. Ha, yahoo.com with their skimpy one pie divided up for 10 guests and awful menu came in at $100.

Damn, that's heartwarming. If that ain't a picture of what our American life is all about, I don't know what is. Thank you for bringing us all back down to earth, bgill.

Happy Thanksgiving!
