Thanksgiving

It was my job to make the turkey again this year. Instead of listening to Martha Stewart, which I did last year with mediocre results, I used one of those oven bags. It turned out very good. After three hours, the meat just fell off the bone. Others brought casseroles and mashed potatoes and pies and there was a plethora of food.

With a couple of football fans in attendance, the television roared in the background, adding a traditional flair to the proceedings.

Jack update

A while back, I wrote about Jack Nelson, the man from Hendrum who walked from Moorhead to Hendrum on the first anniversary of his brain surgery. Well, Jack wrote up his experience. In California, Jack writes for a basketball website. His style is a little reminiscent of Casey Stengel.
