The Thanksgiving visit from BSD post 149..

Happy Thanksgiving to all!  If your country does not celebrate Thanksgiving with the United States, then Happy Thursday to you. This morning started off with my laptop displaying the Blue Screen of Death (BSD) when we got up.  I have to say as computer professional that I enjoy a challenge. Maybe not on Thanksgiving. The long and short of it is the computer is up and running mostly correctly. It does seem to have a lag that was not there before. I will continue to monitor the behavior with an eye toward replacing the hard drive and reloading from scratch.

We celebrate Thanksgiving each year with my wife’s mother, step father and my DW’s sister, husband and two kids. Dinner is in Brick which is about half way between the two daughter’s houses. I deep-fried another turkey today. This one turned out great, just like yesterday’s turkey. If you read yesterday’s blog you will remember that I fry a turkey each year at work for our work Thanksgiving party. Dinner went well. My MIL makes home-made manicotti for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. They are the best. The rest of the meal was great. No drama at the table. All the children seem to have been on their best behavior.

After dinner most of us went to watch (sleep) a football game on tv. It was a very low-key afternoon. As I sat down to write my blog tonight I realised that I did not take any pictures today. Hmmm. I even brought my good camera with me. I guess I got caught up with cooking the turkey and visiting.  Tomorrow morning we have an 8 am appointment with DS2’s eye doctor. If all goes well this will be our last visit.

That is all for tonight. The picture of the day comes from April 2005.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Peter! I just got caught up (back to somewhere around 105!) Much quieter here in Charleston. We had a relatively cold day (high of 70, low of 45 now.) Church in the morning, which we celebrated in the AME church next door (our building is closed due to earthquake damage.) Dinner at my parent’s house across the bridge in Mt. Pleasant, with my Grandma Hein (103 on 12/2!), plus Alex and Ben. Laura and Bethany are in Phoenix for a family reunion – we couldn’t swing all of us going. We watched Dirty Harry this evening, since the boys had never seen it, then came home. Alex just took the car to start his Black Friday cycle.

    I really appreciate this blog. While I don’t find time to read every day, I do get the frequent tweets. Of all of the people I knew in HS, you are the only one who actually communicates! Lots of folks put up brief updates on FB (glad to see you finally got a profile picture there,) but usually not much substance.

    Take care!
