I'll join you in that, John.  My thanks to Weenie Campbell world for turning me on to lots of amazing music, laughs, and helping me keep to what Mike Seeger called "the true vine".
Enjoy your turkey or turkey-less day,
Suzy

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.

I'm thankful for people who have mysterious interest in music made in the rural south in the 1920s and 1930s.

Dang, the Weber got away from me and I somewhat singed the bird on the rotisserie. It was a good day in the Texas hill country, played some music, fed 10 family & friends, everyone seemed to have a good time. I was exhausted by midnight.

Kudos to the Weber rotisserie electric motor, the bird was at the outer limit at 18.5 pounds, I had to improvise counterweighting the spit using a couple of vise grips. The carcass is currently stewing-down nicely for soup stock.

  I'm thankful for lots of things in my life, including the opportunity to search a database of lyrics, thoughts, and super blues nerd info on a great site like this!

  Thanks all,

Had the turkey in the smoker at dawn to the sound of the first few cedar waxwings arriving for the winter keening from the top of the liquidambar in full fall color over the deck. Much to be thankful for here in Oakland. Truly my favorite holiday.

May everyone be surrounded by close friends and family.

And a belated Happy Thanksgiving to y'all...

That's funny, I also smoked a turkey the day before TG. I used apple wood chips on a standard Weber 22" charcoal grill. The other one we had we slow-roasted in the wood range on the day. It went in at midnight just as the smoked bird came off the grill. The smoked one was on for 12 hours, the roaster took 14 hours. Both were better than I've managed to achieve in the past with turkeys. Low and slow for me from now on. We had eight people joining us for dinner.

We raised the turkeys from week old poults. I despatched them, Cheryl & I plucked them and hung them guts-in in the root cellar to age for a week before cleaning and brining. It was pretty intense at the outset but we hung in there and did-in four in total. But that's just how it goes down on the farm, hope my karma can stand it. We still have 12 crazy turkeys running around the barn, and a foot of snow on the ground.

The same to you John, and Weenies everywhere.  My daughter's home from 4 years in the Navy, my son's coming home from school, great weather, New Mexico style dinner in the works for tomorrow.  And back to playing again after a serious hand injury.  Lots to be grateful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I'm trying to think of good ways to deflect the temptation to engage in political discussions, should they arise (and realistically how could they not?) around a large dinner table with friends later today. We provided the 26 pound turkey. The bird was Amish-raised so probably we should avoid electric carving aids.

Happy Thanksgiving, Rivers.

...I'm trying to think of good ways to deflect the temptation to engage in political discussions, should they arise (and realistically how could they not?)...

I usually just say, "We live in the Dark Ages and any appearance of it being a modern world is merely an illusion." --and leave it at that.

Don't eat too much turkey. We have to leave enough room for all of the other goodies.  ;)

It is a wonderful feeling to wake up in the morning and realize that you, oh God, have given me another day to live. And I am especially grateful today, on this Thanksgiving, that I can be with my loved ones and honor your spirit. Amen.

PS could you please do something about the weather? It?s been snowing far too much for the time of year and tomorrow will be worse. Thanks in advance🙏😎🙏

Aren?t you a little young to be on life support?

And God, don?t you dare touch the weather... high of 67, low of 45 tomorrow.  A few clouds, but we?ll put up with those.

I stacked a cord and a quarter mixed hardwood in the barn today so I?m holding up pretty good so far!

PPS also god, please tell frontier to hurry up and fix our internet connection. ETA Monday is not really acceptable, IMNSHO. I?ll be calling them again in the morning to see how you got on

Title: Re: Happy Thanksgiving
Post by: Rivers on November 21, 2018, 08:52:49 PM
Currently at 12?F, going down to 3?F by early morning, max 18?F tomorrow. Wind chill at 5 AM predicted to be -10?F, it's been blowing a Norwester all today. The snow came very early this year, crazy stuff. Fortunately I'd just completed a lot of weather-stripping and other moves to make the house more comfortable than it was last year and it's made a big difference. Ah well... it's lovely here for the other three seasons.

Internet is back on so thank god for that!
