On Turkey Week Monday

For my international readers, this week is an abnormal one in America with Thursday’s Thanksgiving celebration followed by Friday’s shopping craze. This also means a change in my normal posting schedule. Time will tell how the week unfolds.

How was your weekend? We hit the ballroom dance floor Friday and Saturday, but not dancing for two weeks means we were a bit rusty. My nephew visited us on Saturday as he and I went to historic Nippert Stadium for a college football game, which didn’t yield good results for the home team. Nonetheless, he got a check on his bucket list. It’s also possible that Sunday was the last day dealing with the seasonal leaves. But I only said it is possible.

Although turkey is the primary menu item for the traditional Thanksgiving meal, an animated pig is going to occupy the Monday Morning Entertainment menu. Enjoy, have a good week, and for those traveling – a safe journey ahead for all.

  1. Just please, Please, PLEASE don’t talk about “Viernes Negro”, please! I’ve still got 5 days to go – this is as bad as the dang election commercials! Where’s Doctor Who to take us to Saturday when we need him?!? πŸ˜€
    May YOUR leaves NOT last, and may MY well pump LAST. Otherwise, it ain’t gonna be a very Happy Thanksgiving!
    Have a good Monday, try to avoid the stores, and get them rusty dance moves polished, soldier. πŸ˜‰

  2. I have to laugh at your choice of the dancing pig! Good choice for the week’s opener. The trees are finally bare? What will you do with all the extra time? Maybe more dancing! Glad you had the chance to get back on the dance floor. I doubt you were too rusty! πŸ™‚

    • Debra,
      The trees aren’t totally bare yet, but the bulk are down. After all, there are a few late fallers and an oak that holds it’s leaves. About the dance rust, we didn’t dance for two consecutive weekends, and we were surprised how much we struggled … just like the saying, “Don’t use it, lose it.” Thanks for commenting.

  3. There’s something nice about the pig! The dragon wings I think… We had puppy school, watched some fishermen battle with a monster salmon and a walk in the woods. Restaurant day turned a weekend into a little gourmet jaunt around the neighbourhood.
    Happy Thanksgiving to Frank & Frank’s friends πŸ™‚

      Restaurant Day in neighborhoods events sounds like something we would enjoy! Meanwhile, we know that salmon are strong … but again, monster salmon take the battle to another level. Thans for commenting and the holiday greeting!

      We feel good about the leaves. Fortunately, we had great weather yesterday for the event. Meanwhile, enjoy the shopping … and I won’t be there! … but I’m hoping for a Black Friday post. Thanks for stopping by.

      Being the culinary artist that you are, I understand your desire for Thanksgiving, Aussie style. I’m not sure how many countries have such a feast, although I know the Canadians celebrate in October. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Video is so brilliant – it that the way you enter the dance floor … ??? My weekend has been full with friendly work – soon going over to Dublin and need it all done. Nothing exciting what so ever has been going on. At mum’s just now – she need to go to for an eye check up again. Been up since 7am and will not be back home until 8am. Full day plus a little more.
    We have the most wonderful weather – not a cloud on the sky and this morning was it frost, the first … on the ground and a bit foggy.
    By the way I hate turkey, dead or alive. *smile … you can take my slices too.

      Cheers to you for helping your mother. As for the dance floor entrance, LOL …. no way I can move like that. Does you dislike of turkey come from cooking it too often for crew and passengers? Meanwhile, I’m one who prefers the dark meat because it is more moist. Thanks for sharing your weekend and good luck with your upcoming trip.

  6. This is gonna be my first Thanksgivings without a proper meal and by proper I mean traditional, haven’t planned a thing and won’t be going home, which is ok, I don’t like traveling during this dates, everywhere is packed and difficult to move around.
    I liked the clip.

      Travels for this holiday is crazy, let alone the distance. Then again, you would have to make worth the time. Oh wait … I once went Cincinnati to Madrid for a three-day weekend. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by.

      It was just a matter of time … from early Friday morning, to midnight, now to Thursday evening. Personally, I find it a bit sad … but hey, different strokes for different folks. Thanks for stopping by …. and Thanksgiving satire coming on Wednesday!

      Very good dance analogies for the week! After all, the week will have many emotions. But I’m sticking with a special edition of Wednesday satire, and hope for an appropriate Black Friday post. Thanks for visiting.

  7. Don’t know what to say about the video. Poor Michael, what those plastic surgeons did to him towards the end – horrible. I wouldn’t have even know him without the hat. So are we having turkey and ham on Thursday?

    • Fasab,
      Ah ha … you read my mind in this post. I didn’t find a turkey video that I was happy with for this day, so settled on the pig knowing that some would celebrate the day with a ham. For us though, it will be turkey. Thanks for visiting.

      Many thanks, and I feel confident the leave battle may be over for the season. At worst, only one more round. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Thanks for visiting and the greeting.
