Getting Some Bird A Day Ahead Of The Crowd

Since Ed and I have to start our UPS run tonight at midnight, my mother decided she would host Thanksgiving today, inviting my brother and his family to join us, so we would have a proper turkey dinner before heading out on the road. This is what the kitchen counter looked like early this morning; everything lined up and ready to be filled with deliciousness.

She set the table in advance, putting a little dark chocolate turkey at everyone's place setting. The calm blue of the dining area was getting ready to see some serious eating action. I typed the rest of this earlier today and I am now in my post dinner respite. In a few hours, we'll be hitting the highway toward Louisville. It's the first leg of a 7,200 mile trip. To say I'm looking forward to this first week would be a bold-faced lie. But, the first trip out is always the killer one.

One more hour in the lazy boy and then we're off.

Like big turkeys!
