Haven’t been out to the grill lately,  thought I stop by and say hello. “Hello!”

Yeah, I'm going to keep SixtySomePing, it's kinda like a birthname 😊 Besides, I was thinking that turning 70, I would probably want to keep thinking young, ha.

Sorry for your loss @bscinstnct.  I too lost my mother a year ago August. She suffered from kidney disease and was on dialysis for 3 years and finally succumbed to infection/sepsis at almost 87..  I w

Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow to all the Americans in here. I know you Canadians had yours in

October. I have no idea what you guys do in the other countries but I hope you have a great day

no matter what you're doing.

 

Cobi and I were just gonna stay home but our neighbors down the street invited us over so we

decided to go. They both had covid a few months ago so we figure it's safe to go over.

I love me some Thanksgiving. We were all about the food. Party? Yes but no alcohol. Lived in a dry house. Thanksgiving is:was about being thankful for what God had done to provide for our needs. Was very simple. Turkey and gravy, ham , mash taters, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sage or oyster dressing, green beans, rolls and pumpkin pie . Married into a family who drink but they never had it during thanksgiving. So it was kinda like home. 
factoid: The original Thanksgiving, no Turkey was served. Fish and venison were the main courses. 
 

I am not dry but I keep the tradition up. 

My first job after we arrived in Australia was a family owned and run engineering company in Brisbane. They were tea total and deeply religious, they did not use profanities. After I had worked there a few weeks we were invited to their home, tea or coffee with snacks and then they asked if we would like to watch a movie, the choice was one of many hard porn movies, they had a very large selection,we declined. Went to their home on other occasions but was never offered the movie experience again much to our relief.

 

They were fantastic to work for, carried over their religious inclinations into the business, did not push it onto you but it was not far away if you asked.😇

@tolmij; your story jogged a memory that I have long since forgotten about...

 

In her youth, my wife was a reservist.  Periodically we would run into folks she served with.  One of her friends from those years married a fellow I knew from my childhood that I had played baseball with.  They had a small farm and ran a fruit and vegetable stand in the town next to where we lived at the time.  DW and her friend would see each other fairly regularly in that setting.  At one point we were invited over because the friend had some new porn movies that she wanted to share.  DW declined knowing full well where this was heading...  Don't recall seeing that couple after that point.

 

I guess you could say that I'm pretty conservative.  Others may use different terminology.  I've had my moments when I've come in contact with the racier side of life, but only in passing.  Never walked through the door to see what was on the other side.  That's not to say I'm a prude, it's just that I've seen too many bad things happen from the frailties of human nature.

That sums us up as well, each to their own.

Its not a surprise that the Grille is empty today, hopefully its because you are all out enjoying Thanksgiving. Have a safe and sober time with family and friends, make the most of these enjoyable times as and when you can. No doubt you will all be back soon with many tales to tell

And.............a good time was had by all..................not a stuffing fan but am a fan of stuffing. Just had to

be careful not to stuff too much lest the stretched food storage container start demanding more and

become a high maintenance outcropping.

 

When I was young I used to say, when it comes to food, that there are 2 kinds of people; those that

eat to live and those that live to eat. Now, in semi old age, I would like to amend that, like many

things I spouted in youthful ignorance.  I think it's possible to love to eat without necessarily living to

eat.

 

Oh well, overthinking is one thing I no longer excel at so I'll just say the food was great and I happily

ate plenty of it.

Christmas is almost with us, new tree this year, retired the old one after 29 years of faithful service, still in excellent condition in our shed, looking for a suitable recipient that cannot afford one. We try to help this time of the year as we as a family are so blessed. No decoration or presents, they are the rest of the days jobs.
