Apres the Turkey

We're all full. Post-dinners, some of us gathered here and ate pie to stuff it down. I couldn't eat after dinner, seems to be an aging thing. There's just so much I can eat anymore. Once the hunger's done (which is alarmingly like after 15 bites now) I can put copious amounts of liquid in, but the chewing is over. It gets to dessert and I just can't. Which is fine because the best breakfast in the world is pie.

It was a dramaless holiday, just a bit of bitching to spice things up. Very nice. The best thing is seeing the same old faces, and for the most part they were seen. Long as we have those touchstones everything's all right.

I'm getting silly and have drunk a good portion of whiskey so I'm going to put my feet up and relax and start dreaming of a white Christmas. Why not? We got a white Thanksgiving...

Hey Laura,
It seems like you've had a mostly enjoyable American Thanksgiving Day. Nothing like a bit of bitching. Good practice for Boxing Day Eve, I mean Christmas Day!
Have fun and at gone 2:37 A.M. on a Friday morning, I bid thee goodnight:)

Lawless- I hope everyone had the Thanksgiving I did. Old friends, laughter, good food. Everyone should have one of Grotke's pies, just once.

Gary- If you were here in America you'd be swept up in our Christmas dos and wouldn't have time to be anything but tired by Christmas Day! And what are you doing up at that hour, young man?

Actually Laura, it sounds just like England. Only with different accents and bearing in mind which way to watch for the traffic while Christmas shopping!
"Young man?", thanks! Didn't you know I'm in every time zone except my own. Folks in North America anxiously wait for my comments. Or maybe not :)

Gary= Yes, humans tend to be the same everywhere at holidays, I've noticed..

Time zones? There are time zones? That explains a lot! ;)
