Thanksgiving Day ends

What a pleasant holiday as always I guess, well almost always.  Our turkey, stuffing,  turkey parts gravy, green beans, squash, cauliflower, and yams all worked, not just worked but was entirely enjoyable.

Tonight, a very long Thanksgiving tradition of eating the fresh cooked turkey late at night has continued.  This was not intentional.  Upstairs watching some film, a hunger surged,  Downstairs I went and what was there but turkey.  What a complete treat, realizing only then that this experience had been going on for so many years.

Any year is a year to be committed to this totally American tradition.  It is ingrained in us.  It is hard to understand the perils that we in the West now face.  There are mass killers, pure psychopaths, and lost souls on the loose with impunity in parts of the world under the guise of being part of some religion.

All of that we know, but Thanksgiving is beautiful holiday that will be preserved.  It is a special part of us, no gifts, just food, family, and friends. This is something to defend.
