How is everyone's Thanksgiving prep going? You Euro and Aussie Brokies must find all this bother over dinner amusing.
It does seem a lot so close to Christmas. It would be better further away. A lot of us have a mid-winter lunch in June or July because it is so hot in December for the traditional foods. Sometimes it is called Yuletide, others call it Christmas in July.

Mom is having dinner catered, but has asked me to make the pull apart pizza bread as an appetizer.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I have a pumpkin pie in the oven now, and it smells heavenly! I'm about to prepare the stuffing so it can mellow in the fridge for a day and I'm also going to boil the potatoes in their jackets for eventual mashed potatoes. 

Oooh! I bet that pumpkin pie smells wonderful!  :D

I'm picking up the turkey later today!!

If it says, "Senor, senor," I'd pass it by.  ;D

A Happy Thanksgiving to all Brokies near and far.  :)

I'm sure that will be a lot better than a bowl of sugarpops or cornpops.  ;D

Seeing these candlesticks and wineglasses reminds me of the only disaster that happened yesterday. I was removing some heavy candlesticks from the back corner of a shelf in my china cabinet and suddenly the whole shelf tilted forward and everything on it (mostly crystal wineglasses and a crystal pitcher)  started sliding off! I very quickly blocked everything I could from sliding off the shelf with my body but I could hear things falling to the floor and exploding. Offline Chuck was behind me and quickly diagnosed the problem: the tiny bracket which held the shelf up was missing from the front right corner of it. Fortunately, I only lost three wineglasses, two of which were not important (not family heirlooms).

It's kind of ironic because I was going to show OCD the candlesticks even though I knew they were much too tall for use at the dinner table. And I didn't need the wineglasses because everyone who attended yesterday was a teetotaler!

Well, isn't that a GDB-etc.?  :(

Sorry to hear about this, FRiend. Reminds of the time I had a cupboard shelf collapse just like that when I was storing some new flea market glassware finds. Sure did make me mad, I can tell you.  :(

Maybe we should have a thread on holiday disasters?
