Hi everyone! What are your Thanksgiving plans? Euro- and Australia-Brokies, I'd love to hear your plans too!

My, my, my, someone's gone and stolen about half the pictures! Must get busy and freshen this site up with some new ones...but at least the classic Monroe family and Twist family photos are still here!
May 2019 be better for us all.

Plans? Dinner with the cousins as usual. Sometime over the weekend I'm dragging my dad to the movies with me to see Lincoln. And I hope I get to visit at least one model train shop.  ;D

There's no T'giving in Sweden, it's not celebrated here. So no plans.

What day is it?

If it's a weekday, I'll be working as usual.

No friends you can party with?  :'(

(Sometimes Thanksgiving sucks when you do have family. Not in my case, I'm looking forward to dinner with the cousins, but I've heard tell.)

Well, my family has scattered to the winds and it's too hard to get them all together. When that happens, I look for a shelter or soup kitchen to volunteer at. This year, the ones I contacted had waiting lists! Finally, I got invited over to my daughter's in-laws and they are nice enough to let me bring a few things. My daughter has specifically requested me to bring the cranberry sauce (none of that stuff that still has the indentations visible from the can!) and sweet-sour braised brussels sprouts, one of her favorite side dishes. And I'll probably cook a few other things that I could take into the office.

Same as Sonja of course - no plans at all since we don't do Thanksgiving. On Thursday, my daughter will have her very first job interview for an internship at a hospital, and I'm gonna drive her, which will take the whole afternoon since it's not around the next corner. If she gets it, she'll have to take public transport for commuting, but for the interview I'm happy to drive her. :)

I've hated all Brussels sprouts I've tried in my life, but I would give them another try in a sweet-sour variation. :)
