Quick Update

Greetings on this rare but sunny day in Blaine.

Just thought I would drop a quick note to say we are still here:) Jamie, Suzanne and Opal spent the evening of Thanksgiving with us and we ate the traditional turkey dinner.

How the turkey got cooked...Ron kept saying we could cook a 10-12 lb turkey in our little oven in our motor-home but alas the 12 lb bird we bought was just too big. So...in collaboration with Kathryn Brehmer (she was staying at the Alesse's (The C Shop) along with her brother, sister-in-law and niece, Emma and nephew, Tom) her cooking was done around 3:15 and then our turkey went in. Cooked for 3 hours and was done, so we had a late dinner beginning around 6:30. All the food was delicious, Suzanne brought a cherry chiffon and a black-cherry chiffon and the only mishap was while Ron and I were cleaning up the dishes I realized the oven was still on. I opened it to find some very overcooked sweetpotatoes and very brown marshmallows! I tried to eat them the next day and they were quite discusting:(.

All is well with us and hope the same is true for you.
