Thanksgiving, 2009

Yes, the French do have turkey; it's called Dinde; as you
can see, it was a somewhat abbreviated turkey dinner,
although Vicki cooked heroically despite the lack of
yams, giblets, and, horrors, green jello for the green
slime (lime bavarian); we are gratified to know Rachel
carried on the tradition

It was all washed down with Normandy cider; Normandie
Gourmandie, the label says

Unfortunately, what I thought might be cranberry sauce
turned out to be something else, something wretched, I
fed to the sea-gulls

We ate at Mount St. Michel, at the foot of the mount, and indeed reflected on the many things for which we have to be thankful. And we thought of our many family and friends, wishing them a happy Thanksgiving as well.
