Happy Thanksgiving!!!

This morning marked the first Thanksgiving of just Charles and myself. We slept late. :-) Always nice. When we did wake up, we lounged in bed and rambled off stuff and ideas and things we are Thankful for. We then decided to eat some breakfast and lounged around watching Christmas movies on TV for a couple hours. About 2:30pm we decided to head to Bob Evans for our Turkey dinner. :-) Well. Guess what. Bob Evans is CLOSED on Thanksgiving! Those heffers! Who do they think they are???

So, we headed to Cracker Barrel. The bet was on. Were we one of a few lazy and lonely people that do not cook on Thanksgiving for just two people or were apart of a large group that had this tradition of heading out? Did you guess??? Well, let's just say that Cracker Barrel was not exactly empty by any stretch of the imagination. We had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Forever on our waitress but the food came quick as I'm sure they had a mass production of the Thanksgiving Feast plate already prepared! I must say though. I was not really impressed. The ham was dry. The turkey bland. The Sweet Potatoes were too Orange Juice tasty. The mashed potatoes, well, let's just say that none of it was anywhere near what I'm used to by my families home cooking!

After linner, we headed for a drive through the Busch Wildlife Park. It was nice. A lot of dirt roads and Charles does not like to drive down them... We goofed around and took pics and once back home, we even attempted a family picture with the dogs. Let's just say that the pictures speak for themselves! LOL I'll post them soon!

For now... Happy Thanksgiving to all who read these words! May you remember all the blessings in your life and take time to ponder on these, no matter how small they may seem!
