    MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
    MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
    MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
    MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
    MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
    MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL

    Gosh, we did not do thanksgiving this year, having an American partner, I've done thanksgiving for him many times over the past 20 years, and the house is full of Americans.

    Didn't make one pumpkin pie nothing, as I do all the cooking., and he may also miss out on Christmas lunch this year, as I hope to work; always next year.

    I've found many Americans do, yet down in Oz, Christmas Lunch is the biggest meal of the year. Once year when I was in the states for thanksgiving and Christmas, I cooked up a big feed on Christmas day,and everone was like what the, this is like Thanksgiving, yet for me it was Christmas Day.

    The thing that got me about Christmas Day in the US of A, is that it got dark so early in the day; well it did in Milwaukee anyway.

    Thank goodness I'm only responsible for the desserts this year.

    And thanks G-Force. Hope your Turkey Day is awesome, too.

    Yeah, it's darfk here by 5 pm and in December it will get dark by 4:30 pm. That's the worst part of winter. There's not many light hours to get outdoor work done. Most people go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. This causes severe depression in a lot of people because they never see light, if they work in a building with no windows.

    The Sunday after Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year and often there is a snowstorm on the Thanskgiving weekend, stranding millions of people in airports.

    I am already feeling the depression. I leave work and it immediately gets dark.

    We're having Thanksgiving at the house of some gay friends, along with several other couples, like we did last year, all men. My partner's not bringing a food item this time, however, as he's still not up to heavy cooking duties after his 11-day hospitalization.

    But I don't want us to go empty-handed, so I offered to make some simple dish myself, that even I can manage. Naturally my partner is dubious, not wanting the dinner to be spoiled, not to mention our personal liability risk.

    But I figure something like a big bowl of green peas, that I think I could heat properly, if that would fit into our hosts' menu plans. I might even get creative and put some butter on it. That should be unlikely to kill anyone. icon_biggrin.gif

    A table full of gay men?

    AND BUTTER?

    You will be shunned. Ostracized. Pilloried in the parking lot in front of George's Alibi. Burned in effigy (with nice, crisp carmelized skin).

    Oh, no, these aren't your average fussy gay guys, have very typically American tastes in food. I'll be in no danger of being shunned & ostracized, nor of burning unless I accidentally do it to myself in our own kitchen.

    But being pilloried in front of the Alibi sounds interesting. One of the couples could bring their own pillory from home, and I could phone Pompano Bill to take photos for Hot Spots.

    I'm out many years now. But my relationship to my nephew is changing. He is a new father--I've come bearing food while he and his wife cope (rather well) with the birth of twin girls. He has invited me to the baptism. This is different. I haven't been invited to any family gatherings save through my mother (Dorothy, ask Rob if he wants to come). Life is full of surprises for which gratitude wells up.

    Oz is the best place to e this time of year it's still light at 8:30 PM, if we had Thanks Giving down here it would be BBQs.icon_razz.gif
