NOTE:  I apologize for being so late with this issue -- but I've been having some serious computer issues as well as some personal ones.  I wanted this out last week (the 15th) but fell far short of that -- I hope it's "all's well that ends well"


From Wikipedia:  Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well.

The story goes that American Thanksgiving  is about the local Native Americans helping the pilgrims through their first winter and showing them how to farm their first year, so a harvest feast was thrown to thank the Wampanoag (and no, these are not Wampanoag women)


Anyway, "Over the river and through the wood" (actually a poem called "The New-England Boy's Song about Thanksgiving Day") -- so let's sled on to Grandma's for dinner. -- Naked sled wipeout
-- Naked (topless) sledding competition.3.

Thanksgiving prep begins a few days before  -- mostly shopping or making side dishes and/or desserts -- Banana cream pie -- naked

Cooking is messy -- so do it in your easy-to-clean "clothes" -- smile
-- messy baking

or at least a sexy apron -- smile -- Thanksgiving pizza (Cooking Naked [apron covering]) -- Stuffed acorn squash -- naked -- topless

On Thanksgiving morning, the very first thing to do is -- have your coffee! -- Naked frying egg

Then it's time to get the turkey in the oven



 And start cooking the rest of the dinner  -- Shepherd's pie -- Cooking in the raw (naked) -- Italian meatballs -- Carrot soup -- Gingerbread men



And while you're doing that, someone can start setting the table

Now it's time to sit down and EAT!


Here's a lttle chart to help you plan your Thanksgiving dinner
May it be happy and uneventful (you know the reputation family Thanksgiving dinners have!

Here's a depiction of a bachelor's Thanksgiving (along with copious amounts of beer -- smile)

Because I was late, it pushes the next issue back as well -- see you in December (the 13th)
(Hopefully I can get my computer issues rectified by then)
