Dinner Tonight: Thanksgiving Day Dinner!
First a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It's been a mostly cloudy day around here, high in the 60's. The finger I had surgery on is looking good, go next week to have the stitches removed. Not a lot going on today. It was just me, Mom, and Dad for Thanksgiving Dinner with others stopping by later in the day and evening. Spent the day as Mom's souse chef, she wanted to make dinner. For dinner tonight it's Thanksgiving Dinner!
