Happy Thanksgiving from the Uber Geek
Here in the Lair, it's the quiet period before the storm of preparation begins. I think I find the frantic preparation of the feast as much fun (maybe even a bit more fun) than the actual eating itself.
My wife prepares a legendary meal and what may be even more myth-building is the kitchen mess she can create. At times, I think she secretly takes handfuls of flour and just throws it in the air. Of course, there will be the inevitable Thanksgiving Day challenges to be faced - the panic of a missing ingredient, a dropped pan (ahhh, the year of the para-turkey!), a spilled glass of wine - all things that will be overcome and transform from crisis to cherished memory.
But the main theme of the day is to be Thankful for what we have and I find my self with an overflowing cup there. We're all healthy and, with my son is home from college, we're all together so what can be better than that?
Have a great day, enjoy the football and be thankful for what you have.
