We're going to the casino, no dinner, no nothin.
We'll eat at the buffet, but it's not holiday themed.
We're both T-giving'd out and have been for years.
The food is boring, we see family all the time so
that's boring, we just opted out this year. Feels
great.

I do stock up on the sales stuff. Bought 20 cans of
cream of mushroom soup half price, and 75 cans
of green beans at 3 for $1. Like a well stocked
pantry.

I read a national survey that found people would
rather have a small holiday dinner with close
friends than a big one with family. I agree, nobody
has the Walton's on T-Giving..

This is the first year we aren't cooking in a long time. I feel a bit down about that but it's fine.

My father in Washington who can be gruff and dislikes most people and prefers animals. He also stocks up on cream of mushroom and other can goods on sale, he also started doing T-day at the local casino a few years ago.

Toss in a Gambling forum, a trade slots for a Roulette system and its a scary though.

Up early as usual, hard to sleep in harder with this cold. But later this morning off to the parent's house and walk the dog. Then try to convince them not to baste or overcook the turkey. Then to force my dad to leave the TV on even though he will say, "but nobody is watching it, they can ask if they want football on." Later to tell him just make a full pot of coffee even if some gets thrown out while explaining to my mother that you wait to make the coffee and if it is on the pot over an hour it needs to be tossed. Maybe remember Thanksgiving 2005 when a former roommate and I set off the burglar alarm in the common area at his new digs.

Oh the holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I'm off to work in a few hours because someone has to play bartender at my place. And since the Eagles are on later we will be busy starting around 4PM. So if anyone needs a good craft beer and some Wings or a Burger from our limited menu in the Eastern PA area, let me know.

For years I have resisted going anywhere near a casino on major holidays, let alone eat there. I always pictured a lonely and sad crowd on those days. A few years ago we broke down and tried it and it didn't take long to see just how unfounded my preconceived notions were. It was inevitable when having guests from out of state that there would be interest in our two casinos so we obliged.

I've spent Thanksgiving in some unusual places and countries. I've had Thanksgiving dinner a few times at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth Massachusetts where they say it all started. My Thanksgiving day usually starts with volunteering at a worthy charity and sometimes a dip in the ocean, ending with a gathering of family and friends. Today was no different as my wife and I reported for duty just after 5AM. We skipped the ocean this year.

FrGamble, I am thankful each and every day of the year. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
