Happy Thanksgiving, at least to fellow Americans (the Canadians had theirs on October 10th). Since our Thanksgiving pot luck was yesterday, today doesn't quite feel like Thanksgiving. When I'm home, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I usually cook a 18 - 25 pound Plainville (an "open range", non injected, used to be locally raised) turkey with all the fixings. We usually had relatives plus a student or two that couldn't get home for the holiday over for the day. I did get a Skype call from my daughter & the grandkids, which was nice.
I checked with the office to see if there were any cancellations for the weekend, but no such luck, at least for Friday. Since I have to move out of site 47 by 1:00, I'll probably move to the dry camping area until Sunday, when I move into site 26. It has been interesting playing Musical Campsites! If something opens up tomorrow, the office staff said they would stop by.
About all I did today was take a shower, and finished Joanna Harris's Blackberry Wine an excellent book. She is the author of the more popular Chocolat, which was made into a popular 2001 movie.
It was warm enough to sit outside and read, but windy enough that I finally gave up and moved inside the trailer.
Dinner was HEB's Chicken Tortilla soup, something I could cook inside out of the wind. A bit spicier than I expected, but OK. No photos today.
Until Tomorrow -
