HOLIDAY TIME!

HI EVERYONE!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING1

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

LIFE SEEMS TO BE MOVING VERY FAST, AS WE ROLL INTO THE HOLIDAYS!.........EINSTEIN'S THEORY OF RELATIVITY, CERTAINLY IS TRUE!

THANKSGIVING WAS GREAT!

WE HAD AROUND 10 PEOPLE OVER....FAMILY AND FRIENDS, INCLUDING JIMMY'S FATHER AND HIS 2, YES 2, GIRLFRIENDS , OVER!......the 3rd could not come, and the 4th he went out TO  lunch WITH........AND THAT IS ONLY SOME OF THEM!

WE EVEN HAD MARIA OVER..........PRINCE'S DOGGIE GIRLFRIEND!

AND SO THE DAY WENT QUITE WELL!

WE WERE UP EARLY TO STUFF THE 20 LB. BUTTERBALL TURKEY........I USED MY MOTHER'S ITALIAN STUFFING RECIPE, AND A BREAD STUFFING ON THE SIDE.

WE HAD JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE!....JIMMY'S PASTA SAUXE WITH  SAUSASAGE ZITI...........MEATBALLS AND SAUSAGE.....................

THE ANTIPASTO WAS DELICIOUS.....DEVILED EGGS, OLIVES, ALL KINDS OD COLD CUTS AND CHEESES, INCLUDING PROVOLONE, AND PROSCUTTA.

THEN A DELICIOUS BIG SALAD........ROLLS........CANDIED YAMS, BAKED YAMS, SWEET POTATOES WITH MARSHMALLOwS ( my mother's recipe), ........JIMMY'S SPECICAL MASHED POTATOES, ........BRUSSELL SPROTS, CORN, MUSCHROOMS, AND STRING SEAN CASSAROLE.........LOTS OF PIES.......MINCE MEAT, PUMKIN, APPLE AND CUSTAR COCONUT..........NUTS AND FRUITS AND FIGS AND CHESTNUTS..............WE WENT THE WHOLE 9 YARDS!

SO MANY LEFTOVERS, AND PEOPLE TOOK THEM HOME!  AND JIMMY AND I ATE LEFTOVERS FOR 2 DAYS!

.............JIMMY AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 7.5 YEARS, 3 .5 OF WHICH HE HAD BEEN IN PRISON..........NOW IT IS TIME WE MAKE SOME TRADITIONS!

IN THE NEXT ENTRY, I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THE THINGS WE ARE DOING FOR CHRISTMAS!

Hello Fran,

I came back to reread your description of Thanksgiving dinner. It sure sounds great. Also, Libby and I were thinking about you today. There was a show on about angles and what people believe about them. It made us think of you.
Regards, Bill and Libby
