My Thanksgiving Table

Are you behind already for Thanksgiving, like me? I just went to the store Monday nite, and gotta get the turkey thawin'.

 I had hoped to have an idea for my Thanksgiving tablescape by now, and have a beautiful blog about it. Time is running out, I am tired and this is my last chance for this year,  so I decided to show you what I did for Thanksgiving another year. It's just something I pulled together at the last minute. I had a hard time getting those chairs all lined up. I know you can't see everything in the photo, but you get the idea. That was a busy year, too.

A table is ready for a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

Last year I  had the clan outside for Thanksgiving, and I won't do that again. I am almost ashamed to show you these photos!

I don't even know some of those people in the photo.I am glad we had it outside, though, because someone always brings a guest who thinks it's ok to smoke in the house. That smoke smelled funny, too.  Every family has a few who don't dress appropriately for the occasion, don't you? Please say it is not just my family.  And those feathers in the hair! I guess my family teens were just a little ahead of the fashion last year. And the dog ended up sick, cause the kids kept feeding him. That's Uncle John on the right in his tin foil hat. It keeps the aliens from reading his thoughts.

What I really look forward to  after Thanksgiving dinner is sitting around playing cards and having a couple of cocktails. And I mean we play until we are dog tired!

Ok, I may have been able to make a real tablescape to show you in the time I spent on this blog. But I am tired, and now I feel better. I'll take photos for next year!

Hi Pat...I sent you a post about 7:45pm but I guess you didn't get it. Just wanted you to know I thought this was so funny. When I saw the table and all those chairs on Table Top Tuesday I was floored. And then I came and got the biggest laugh. You have a great sense of humor!! I'm a brand new blogger but am having fun finding new blogs of things I like.And I became a follower. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
