Woman tired from all work of day,but still have energy ( actually, the threat of man not taking woman out shopping on Black Friday,because man know where all stores are with super sales) to rub man's aching elbow from all the heavy lifting of knife and fork.

Yeah...'tis a great day.
Woman cook....squash the night before which is
purchased pre-peeled at a higher price.

Woman asks....you want baked or mashed? Knowing
full well he wants mashed, hands man potato peeler
and masher.

Woman opens bag of pre-prepared stuffing mix, adds herbs
and ground gizzards, bakes.

Woman opens can of cranberry sauce, slops it into
fancy bowl with spoon.

Woman fussing and hustling around house...busy work
to make man think she's hustling when in actuallity,
house was cleaned during preceeding three days. Man
never notices.

Woman never worry about quality of food...food poisoning
is not gender specific.

Woman does dishes...rinses plates/cutlery, loads dishwasher
which she had the foresight to have man install, while
watching her own tv having also had foresight to have
man install in kitchen (thereby avoiding obligatory after
dinner football game).

Woman tired from all work of day, but still have energy...
to rub man's aching elbow...or if man's lucky, sets her
sights a bit lower than elbow.




All in how you work it, How.


Have a great day everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving.

PS Still not worked out what you folks are giving thanks for, so without googling, I ask is it a harvest festival?

Bob:

You're old enough to have been present at the first Thanksgiving... so this is rather academic,old bean.

When the Pilgrims came over, they made buddies with the local Injuns.
They broke bread ( and corn and all the other condominiums we eat at Thanksgiving) and were grateful for the fact they didn't starve.

Nowadays,its a big feast for most ( not me ) to celebrate 24 hours of American football, drink beer and nod out on the couch ( Turkey does contain a chemical which makes people sleepy...). I can't drink beer and eat at the same time,so I don't drink today and I skip the sports..nodding out is not an option because the food is so good.

Its a shame,Bob...that you couldn't be here for today's meal.
Nina made her typical pre-meal warmup... bourbon-wieners ( little hot dogs marinated in bourbon overnight...out of this world,daddio) cheese & broccoli quiche ( which I usually eat 80 percent of ) and the 22 pound bird...two pies..and nut bread...and maybe if I kiss enough hiney...some swiss cheese soup.

It's when we celebrate the gift of smallpox infected blankets to the Native Americans.

Actually, it's my favorite holiday : no gifts, largely secular, and you are free to eat and drink to excess. Actually, sorta like a Ripper Convention without the group sex.

Robert:

Yeah, Sir Bob is right about the blankets...we thought those redskins would never leave.

They didn't have bird and potatoes back in the old days...this link mentions some of the grub they did have.
