Dad The Garnish

“Dad decided to kneel next to us in front, so it looks like his head is some kind of garnish for the turkey. I think this is 1979 or maybe 1980. Both of my grandparents lived a few miles apart so when we were little, we spent most holidays at one place.  My grandmothers are in the middle.  I’m the little blonde girl in the front.”

I Ruined Thanksgiving

“Every year for Thanksgiving my brother and I drink several cocktails and deep fry the turkey.  This year I decided to brine the turkey in apple cider.  Results were the fry oil burnt the sugars in the cider turning the turkey black and my grandmother declaring that I ruined Thanksgiving. Cheers!”

Thanksgiving Meltdown

“That’s me with the curls. Apparently not being allowed to stay at the table was enough to warrant a complete meltdown at the family Thanksgiving meal. Everyone else is doing a great job of ignoring me.”
