Thanksgiving plans?

Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away. Anyone planning on traveling? We aren't. My wife and I will stay home. The rest of the family is up north, and we are in Florida, and I can't stand crowds. Plus, it's so expensive to travel that weekend.

My elderly parents live in a retirement home in Mass., so my wife and I always drive down from NH ( about a two hour drive) to have Thanksgiving with them. Not sure how many Thanksgivings they have left, so we make every effort to be with them during the holidays. We'll be with them on Christmas too.

No traveling for me, both my kids and their spouses will be coming into town along with their 5 kids and 3 dogs. In addition to 2 spare bedrooms I have 3 queen size blow up beds for the grandkids that we put up in the family room. My sister and her family will join us for the day. I plan on a turkey in the deep fryer and a brisket and ribs in the smoker, the women will take care of the side dishes.

Wow ... deep fried turkey and smoked brisket & ribs. Sounds like a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, Chuck43!

I will be spending Thanksgiving at home with my lady friend and my two hounds.I can't eat a lot of solid foods due to side effects from throat cancer treatment,however I can partake of some "Turkey"of the liquid variety on the rocks in my favorite tumbler.That and the annual football games will make for a fine day.

The bar opens around 2:00 and dinner is served around 6:00. Make sure you boo Green Bay when we turn on the Packers - Lions game and you'll fit right in.
