Here’s the sequence from the 1980 Thanksgiving dinner at the cottage. The kids were there with their boyfriends, and I had not met George yet. Here friend Frankie is fixing something, and I am heading outside with an armload.

“Mage, is the dinner ready yet?” So I stuck my head out the window to say yes, To cook that lovely unsliced, turkey, I had to hold the oven door shut with a broom stick.

And it was a lovely turkey.

This year we started the day with a chocolate muffin in eaten in bed. We then had a Messenger phone conversation with the kids…MargotLaka. Then I tried to call a friend, and tried getting in to a meeting. Nope, my time was off. When our dinner arrived, we discovered that we are having that red stuff from our dinner caterer. We have no idea what it is. Neither of us wanted to eat it. It comes with noodles, and I will eat Noodles and Cream cheese. At this rate, I will never be thin.


8 oz egg noodles
1 cube of real butter
1 package of cream cheese

Cook the noodles and drain them. Cut both the butter and the cream cheese into cubes. Melt the butter and the cream cheese in the microwave together. Whip this and stir into the noodles. Eat, be thankful, and start your diet tomorrow.

Himself: Got bored watching the holiday parade.
Myself: Parade, kids, this.
Reading: Nothing, imagine.
Watching: Baking.
Photo: Three: Our 1980 Thanksgiving meal.
Gratitude’s: That I am here today to say thank you.

I love noodles (even ramen) with butter and parmesan cheese, but I've got to try your cream cheese noodles.
Happy Thanksgiving!
The picture of you in the window reminds me of my grandma's house. Her pantry window opened out to the backyard. Whenever we had a cook out (Grandpa called it a "roast"), Grandma would pass everything through the window to one of us standing below.

Loved that you shared these photos and the news of the day from years ago. I have been reading my 1999 diary from Open Diary days. I'd bound that one. My gosh how busy we were, Mage, back then. A belated Happy Thanksgiving to you from me.
