            I think I will give the dogs both a couple hotdogs, feed the guinea pigs some extra lettuce and some celery, then make myself something home made. I have been thinking chicken noodle soup with scratch egg noodles.

            Yep, just me and the dogs on turkey day. At least I have the dogs with me and I dont have to work like almost every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and new Years in the Air Force. Spent lots of holidays alone, this one is no different.

            If it isnt snowing or raining I might do some sandblasting on the 65 GTO fenders... then play some Black Ops on the PC and see if I can kill a bottle of rum.

                I'm also spending my Thanksgiving alone. I love turkey and stuffing and all that, but my family is headed to Northampton, MA to eat with my grandparents and I just can't get away. It's a 5 hour drive from Bangor and I only get Thursday off.

                I'm hoping to clean up my basement storage room, take a nap and get caught up on some stuff for work. It should be a nice, productive day off.

                Work will be pretty dead on Friday, so I'll be able to slack that day.

                  I'm going to try a first attempt at deep frying a couple 13lb. gobblers. Everyone I know that does it, says its the best so...

                  I'm using peanut oil, and injecting a local brand chicken marinate in to them.

                  Oh, and making my baked beans too, 50/50 mix of a large can each of Gramdma Brown's,and Bush's Maple-Honey, and add half cup each of brown sugar, French's spicy mustard and Heinz57 ketchup, and a whole pound of pre-cooked, chopped up bacon all mixed together, 375 for 1 hr. (Mongo like Beans!!!!)

                      Notin' - but Mom's neighbor down the street is having us and she'll do the whole deal, no doubt. She's a Bostonian so I don't know quite what to expect. I'll probably bring an extrusion of cranberry sauce - released from the can so the ridges are intact. BTW - who was the idiot who started packing Ocean Spray in those cans w/o a bottom seam? It makes it almost impossible to get the slug out of the can. At home I take it out to the shop and poke a hole in the bottom with a chisel but here I'll probably have to resort to more primitive means.

                          wife's from new orleans and comes from a family of chefs so... lots of stuff. Most likely jumbalaya, maybe boiled crawfish if we can find any in season, and I will be responsible for cooking the turkey. I think I'm going to do it beer-butt style in the Big Green Egg.

                          Either that, or I might convince her to ditch the turkey this year and slow cook a Pork Shoulder instead.

                            Nothing. I got the day off from the usual turkey fry-athon. Whew, mom and family are doing it all and I get to just watch.

                            Jeremy, I can give you tips on deep frying if you want them, from proper injecting (there is a key way) to dropping bird, to completion. Been doing it for 15 years.
