Happy Thanksgiving

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
Excepting Alice
You can get anything you w
ant, at Alice's Restaurant
Walk right in it's around the back
Just a half a mile from the railroad track
You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
--Arlo Guthrie "Alice's Restaurant"

Very obscure song reference today, but it is a family tradition to listen to "Alice's Restaurant" every Thanksgiving. If you aren't familiar with the song, it has a vague (very vague) connection with Thanksgiving and some radio stations play it on the holiday. If you want to hear the song, you can check out this performance on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_7C0QGkiVo


We had a marvelous Thanksgiving. Here are a few things I'm grateful for:
* For such good friends and family
* For happy, healthy children
* That I didn't have to host Thanksgiving at my house this year
* That no one was upset that my "famous" gravy was a tad greasy
* That Susan sent us home with two pieces of her pecan pie
* That Tracy cleaned up the rest of the kitchen mess this morning before going to work
* That I'm not out Christmas shopping today...my ow
n personal Hell.

MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY, MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.

MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP,

MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS,

MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,

MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER

STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Looks like a fun, fun time. Nashville was cool; the travel was hell. How was Tracy's birthday? We thought about him yesterday but were in crazy post-Thanksgiving mountain traffic - didn't think it was safe to call on the cell to say a happy. Best part of Nashville? Going to a honky tonk on Broadway and listening to the Miller Beer jingle guy play while we ate greasy burgers and fries. You know the tune: "If you've got the time, we've got the beer..." Yep, that guy. Very fun.
