happy thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from Northeastern Pennsylvania! I'm here taking a small vacation from the farm and enjoying a couple of days with the other Woginriches. Neighbors and friends are watching the farm so I can be with my family, and I can not thank them enough. Jazz, Annie, and my parent's dog, Melvin, are enjoying the abundance of food falling on the kitchen floor from all the cooking goings-on. I already baked two quiches and two loaves of bread. This evening I'll bake some apple pies and my Tofurkey. No dog nor human will go hungry today. Impossible.

Alas, no Thanksgiving birds were raised on my farm this season—that was a whole big thing last year. But I thought I'd post a photo of TD anyway from last October. He really was a table bird to be proud of. Incidentally, Chuck Klosterman is in that photo as well. Now he's in my freezer. (Not to be crass, but I'm damn thankful for that particular relocation.)

My father has made the Woginrich family traditional long-neck white squash pie which is AMAZING. The evening will be a fire in the den with the family's four large dogs (two goldens and my two huskies) and we'll do what we do every year: Star Wars Thanksgiving. The Woginrich kids have always watched all three original Star Wars movies after dinner, marathon style. This is done with many, many slices of pie. I can't wait.

It's great to be surrounded by my family—which is hilarious and sarcastic. My brother John and Sister Kate are here roaming around, and friends come and go throughout the day. I forgot how much I missed them.... I think help is needed peeling apples, so I'm going to bolt. But I wanted to check in wish all you guys a Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to Jenna and all who lead us away of consumerism and back to the land.

Happy Thanksgiving Jenna (and CAF readers)!

I'm envious of your Star Wars marathon, though a few years ago when we spent Easter in SC with family, we had ourselves a LOTR marathon. Indeed it was! :-)

Heading off to the in-laws' shortly...

Ah Chuck-well location is everything!
In the PST zone we are just cooking. Now some folks do eat early but my idea of fun isn't rolling out of bed to put a turkey in the oven. So our Willie Bird
just hit the oven.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Jenna. :-)

Do enjoy some good time with your family, time fly by so fast, it makes us appreciate the small things. (Cliché but so true!)

Star Wars Thanksgiving! I love it! I wonder if I can start the same thing here with The Lord Of The Rings. I don't think my wife would go for it, but my nieces and nephew sure would.
