Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

We’re having a quiet Thanksgiving with just the two of us, plus Märzen, of course. John is making potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, dressing, Brussels sprouts, and chicken. It is possible to get turkey here, but it’s expensive, and with just the two of us and our small oven, a big chicken will do nicely. With all the dishes, we’re having the standard problems with refrigerator space, so John is stashing some dishes – and the bubbly – in the cockpit.

The temperature here is about the same as Portland, but as Mom pointed out when she called on Skype this morning, it rains a little more here – more like Seattle. If you still don’t know about Skype, you should check it out – at least, if you have any friends or family that are a long distance phone call away. It’s free computer-to-computer calling and very inexpensive computer to landline.
