Our London Visit – Turkey Day 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael @ 22:39

Well, blackcat and I were in London (Reading, actually) this past week and we had a great time. The main reason for the trip was to visit with our good friends P. and K. and cook up a Thanksgiving feast. Preparations began on Friday with shopping and making the desserts. The party was on Saturday. As usual, I did the turkey and stuffing. This year P. did a great dressing and I think that he should prepare the bird next year. (And I can spend more time on pies!)
This was our eighth year together. It has become quite a tradition. Many of the guests from previous years have also become regulars. Even though blackcat and I only see them once a year, it always seems like it was only last weekend. It’s that kind of group.
This year P.’s sister flew in from Athens to be there for her first Thanksgiving. It was great to meet her. Unfortunately, K.’s brother couldn’t make it this year. There’s always next year.
It was a fine day. I’m already looking forward to next year.

  1. As mom and I shared our Thanksgiving together with a good friend of mine (and a lovely day it was), I recall wishing that you and blackcat were here to share it with us. But I’m taking that back — I wouldn’t want you to miss such a wonderful annual tradition on our behalf! So I’m wishing instead for ANY dinner shared by our whole family for ANY occasion. It’s a lovely thought. We miss you.

    Love,
    pj
