    Thanksgiving Traditions

    Happy Turkey Day!

    Any family traditions for Thanksgiving that you would like to share? In our family, someone always has to fix a cranberry dressing and a blue cheese garlic dip(Awesome) both are very old family recipes. Also, the cribbage board comes out for a little friendly competition along with Cyclone and Hawk banter all day too!

    Z

    P.s. As I get older I am starting to like the cranberry dressing. Guess the taste buds are finally breaking down....


    The grass always looks greener, on the other side of the fence, but the dog over there might be meaner, on the other side of the fence… Stay in your own yard, play in your own yard!

    We usually buy a few items from the dollar store and do a Uno tournament, or other games to get the prizes.

    Sometimes we'd 'take' other's prizes It's a lot of fun.

    And the fun of "will they catch the card before it fly's off the table?"

    It seems like wherever I play, the card land dangerously close to the edge of the table

    Well if that is the case, you would be a great turkey hunter as well!

    Eat way too much food, drink way too many whiskey sours, and watch the lions get throttled
