Happy Thanksgiving

Recommended Posts

Yes everyone please have a safe and happy thanksgiving. Our plans have changed 3 times over the past week but somehow we'll get through it. Looks to be a much smaller gathering than usual due to covid but its better to be safe than sorry. Be safe all and enjoy!

Thanksgiving traditions in our household. 

Thanksgiving Parade of course, that is a given. 

At noon every year WDVE, a local FM Radio Rock Station, plays the full "Alice's Restaurant" song.  For those of you that are too young to know, Alice's Restaurant was a movie and song by Arlo Gutherie.  Arlo was in the movie and the reason they play this song every thanksgiving day is the movie basically takes place at Thanksgiving.  It is not what I would call a great movie by today's standards but for those of us who were in their late teens to twenty's when the movie was released, it is sort of a cult classic.

Later in the day we will break out the VCR tape and watch "Planes, Trains and Automobiles.  It is a great Thanksgiving movie staring Steve Martin and John Candy and a movie that I will never tire of.

Oh, wait, I forgot.... we will say Grace, give thanks and eat turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings.
