A friendly gesture

Shut up, kid.

Shut up, kid.

The dump is closed on Thanksgiving. But feel free to put the garbage in comments.

    Ah, yes. The annual listening to Alice’s Restaurant. Happy Thanksgiving to all, folks.

    What if they find my name on an envelope underneath it all?

    I like it! And he is still around and making music!

    A big thank you to Patrick for hosting us on one of the funniest, interesting, educational (really) and most welcoming spots on the innertubes.

    We have a lot to be thankful for – at the top of the list is being able to escape from the land of Orange Tiberius in about a year. With some luck I might be celebrating this holiday in Sicily one year from now. Now we’ll put our turkey in the oven and take a spin around our local State Park trails on our ancient MTB’s before the feast.
    Happy Turkey Day to all (vegetarians and vegans included)

      Indeed, and happy Tofu Turkey day to you too, Larry! I’ll take a spin in a few minutes on my allegedly obsolete (said by those who want to sell bicycles) but still excellent 26″ double boinger.

        Pur tandem riding pals coming over for dinner today. Mushroom fried rice, mashed rutabagas, salad, whole wheat bread, Sandy’s home made cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie with vanilla gelato for desert. No turkey to be found except me.

        • khal spencer Says:

          We marinate tofu slices in a soy/ginger sauce for a few days and then bake them with stuffing, which this year I did w/o the butter. That’s the “tofu turkey”. Home made cranberry sauce from store bought berries, and the usual other dishes.

    About to head out for about a 60-mile ride/therapy! Should be warming up to 70 degrees with a 2 mph south wind!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Thanks for all the giggles Patrick. We need them now more than ever!

    A lot to be thankful for this year. And if you give me a week or so, I could probably think of 1-2 things for that list. At least Mango Mussolini hasn’t blown up the world. So far.

    Kill? Kill?!!

    The local NPR station has an annual Thanksgiving Day tradition of playing “Alice’s”. The President & CEO is a great friend of Arlo and the Guthrie Family. A neighbor, too. His interview with Arlo won several awards including an Edward R. Murrow Award. The recording is a (sometime) premium for donors. I tried to find a link without success, including YouTube. It’s really great!

    I tried to save a very large wild turkey yesterday. Probably not far from his patch but somehow displaced in an extremely busy area surrounded on 3 sides by roads. Called local EnCon wildlife center who reminded me how reluctant the birds are to be ‘herded’ anywhere. I told them I was a vegetarian who wouldn’t be eating turkey’s brother bird on Thursday and thanked them.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

      That’s how we got hooked on Arlo for Thanksgiving, Libby. KRCC-FM in Bibleburg always played “Alice’s Restaurant” sometime during the day (this year they waited until 7 p.m.).

      Good on ya for rescuing Big Bird. I used to love watching them hoofing it around our Weirdcliffe property. Trundling through the snow they looked like hunched-over little old men wearing heavy overcoats.

    My tip of the hat to Thanksgiving.
