    I told my daughter to check for a big enough pan and to check to see if the turkey would even fit in the oven. No report yet. It will be what it will be. I did see a cooking channel show with a 28 pound turkey, and it looked like it worked out. I’m always up for a challenge.

    If I’d been asked, I probably would have opted for two 15 pounders, but this will be interesting! We’ll all have to share stories after the event.

    Enjoying the Thanksgiving preparations…………and, while acknowledging the drought, also enjoying the weather. Paradise.

    My son-in-law ordered a 30 pound fresh turkey. I’ve never cooked one that big. Should be interesting! My daughters and I will prepare the stuffing…. and then, what?, get up in the middle of the night to put it in the oven. Dinner will be served when it’s served….. and not a moment sooner. I’m laughing already!

    Smiles. Yes, I still do the exercises for recovery from my carpal tunnel surgery whenever my wrist feels achy…. and I do my exercises for jaw pain when my TMG junk kicks in. I’m sure I’ll be doing over arm stretches for years to come. I’m grateful for all of the physical therapists who have instructed me over the years! I do what they tell me to do…. and am better for it.

    The PT works the shoulder joint…. enthusiastically!…. and I think I’m about back to where I’d like to be. Living my normal life should be good from here on out.

    PS: the additional physical therapy has been great! I’m always gung-ho about doing whatever I’m supposed to do at home, but it’s also good to have the follow up with the actual PT. I’m glad I asked for a second round.

    Hey, Suz. Hope your day was good….. beautiful down here on the south central coast………. a bit of rain and also clear skies and lovely vistas. Good work in Santa Barbara. Nice day.

  • And, BTW, most un-documented that I work with receive their pay in regular paychecks that take out money for Income Tax, Social Security, Medicare…. none of which the un-documented can benefit from. All this “pay their taxes” makes no sense to me.

  • I work with low wage earning workers….and I’m sure that the biggest opponents of green cards will be those owners who employ restaurant workers and field workers and office cleaners and such….because those business owners can pay low wages and be dismissive to the low wage earners. But we all know that.

  • My own great grandparents came from Denmark/Denmark/Germany/Ireland…. to work as dairyman/baker/gardener/pub owner. They came to work, mostly fleeing war/war/war/hunger. They worked hard and did well and were wonderful citizens. What’s new?

    PS: The drive to Santa Maria this week was lovely as the past week’s rain really greened up the hills. We’re hot again…. Santa Ana winds drying us out. Still and all, I’m so happy to be living in California…. where people are more rational and humane. “:)

    Almost done with my rehab…. and so pleased with the results. Lots more range of motion. I’m a worker-bee when it comes to rehab…. whatever the physical therapist says to do, I do! And it’s working. Nice.

    Love the idea of a warm brownie through the tubes! Thanks, CT. And with that, I’m going to honor my long early work week and retire to dreamland. Enjoy the late nighters yet to come.

    My neo-con twin brother and I both see the civility of what used to be the country we grew up in sinking into the muck….. he and I don’t see eye-to-eye on just about anything….. except that it doesn’t look good for any of us. And I find that really interesting.

    Wonderful! I’d rather talk recipes and good food than anything politics these days! We might as well enjoy what we have while we have it.
