Thanksgivng Joy

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when you take your camera out and put it on the kitchen counter to take pics of Thanksgiving day and forget all about it til the cleanup is done. Suffice it to say, we needed sideboards for the table! Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed taters, asparagus, green bean casserole, two kinds of cranberry sauce, Monkey rolls, maple glazed carrots and pumpkin pecan cheesecake for dessert. Everyone left the table holding full bellies and one or two people had to find a comfortable spot and check their eyelids for holes while they pretended to watch the football game! Jake and Unka John retired to the man cave to play some Halo on one of the gaming devices. Joy, Jan and I went into the woman cave/scraproom and I taught Joy how to use Pinky to make herself a tag with her name on it. Jan "commissioned" me to make a tag for Jake to put on his viola case with his name on it. He picked the stamp he wanted, a raccoon, and I made him the tag so he won't get any more demerits for not having his name on his case. And I forgot to take a pic of IT! The appointed picture taker for the family certainly fell short of her duties this holiday. I will strive to do better at Christmas! I did manage to remember to get a pic of Joy's tag, so it wasn't a total loss. She wanted an acorn on it and once we had it put together, Jan said it meant Joy was a nut! Truer words were never spoken!
