Thanks

I'm very thankful for all the blessings in my life:


  • My partner Steve (rootbeer1), who is my love, my helpmeet, my knight, my shining star, my bear

  • Our families and friends, with a great deal of overlap there

  • Our beautiful and comfortable home, with enough room for hospitality

  • That we both have jobs that we like and that meet our needs

  • That we live in San Francisco

  • Our good health

  • And so much more...


God has given us so much, and we are truly grateful. Yesterday was such a pleasure, having family and friends over to celebrate Thanksgiving . Present were

Steve's brother David and his wife Andrea
Gregg and Stephen
Alberto (iberianbear)
Tim (barak)
Steve and myself, of course

Everbody brought something, so we had an abundance of good things to eat and drink. We dined about 3:30, giving us plenty of time to relax, eat pie, and watch classic cartoons from the Looney Tunes collection, and the film Bend It Like Beckham. Juicy, juicy mangoes!

We went to bed tired, happy, satisfied, and with a fridge full of leftovers. Woohoo!




Devilled eggs, edamame, cheeses, homemade olive tapenade

Side dishes (clockwise from top): Cranberry sauce, Root Beer Sweet Potatoes, dinner rolls, cornbread and sausage stuffing, scalloped oysters, Brussel sprouts with chestnuts



Tim again - he's so photogenic

Stephen - note the Statue of Liberty halo

Some of the leftovers, which guests took home in handy containers



Alberto and Gregg



Cream and pie. We had chess pie (pictured), pumpkin pie, fudge pie, white chocolate cake, and with dinner, tourtiere, a French Canadian meat pie that's traditional in my family

Jack talking with his hands again


My Steve was the photographer for these, so unfortunately none of him yet. When we get images from the others who were taking them, I'll post them here.

I thought that looked like Mr. Nelson in that picture. What's he doing out there right now?

He's here for the weekend with Gregg. We're all going out later today to hit the Tower video sale. He was dressed in full kilt--we'll have to post a picture when we get it.
