THANKSGIVING 2019

Thursday 11/28/19 and a “double” as it’s not only Thanksgiving but Brenda’s birthday as well!

The pen-ultimate chemo session No 11 was completed yesterday and Dr Buck said fix an appointment to surgery in Denver for 5 weeks time.

Today not my normal “dressing gown” Thursday where I usually mope about all day feeling tired and weak. Felt pretty good when I got up at 0730 with no nausea and so far been chopping wood ready for the big storm which is supposed to start sometime this afternoon and continue through Saturday dropping up to 40 inches in its wake.

66 days after departing the UK our God fearing Pilgrims arrived at the American coastline. The ever leaking Speedwell, Mayflower’s sailing partner, was forced to return or sink and never made the crossing.

…….. and now begins the tale of right or wrong. What is stealing ? as in “Thou shalt not steal” and what is providence? Being a religious zealot you of course believe everything “YOU” want and come across is Providence, provided by the good Lord…… or is 1 Man’s trash, 1 Man’s fortune!

Go gett’em Mary

Plymouth Rock ? …………you say?

Suffice to say the Bible Punchers were not good farmers or much in the way of fishermen, despite having landed in one of the best lobster bays around. The dismal saga continues through to fall with many failing to make it. Then , Lo, they discover plentiful baskets of ears of corn, buried in the sand (in agriculture we call this a “clamp” and is still in use today for storing many root vegetables) ….”my word this must be PROVIDENCE provided by the good Lord …….. nice the way he left them in baskets for us to carry.”

Sorry Native Americans they didn’t know and you say the Turkey’s were yours as well?

Now lets see what is coming up on “Our”table………

Fresh cranberry

Swedes on the rolling boil. I only have them twice a year but I LUV em!

A really nice stuffing at the ready

My other favorite ….. the green bean

Must be getting close……. green bean ready along with fresh rolls

Don’t they look good?

Swede mashed and bashed

……. and here it is!

Lucky for me chemo let me have my taste buds back and I could enjoy it all …… thank you ……. that’s something to to give Thanks for!

Wonderful meal!!!
