Happy day to you all.  Great group, this;  the ones of you I have met, I 
like so well that you probably think I am a creepy stalker.  <grin>  Joy 
to you all, everywhere in the world.

My mother retired from Thanksgiving several years ago, and after one 
harrowing day of her pestering me in the kitchen, we have gone to 
Sportsman's Lodge ever since.  That's a local favorite in Sherman Oaks, 
Calif. where originally, you could catch your own trout in the 
artificial "stream" and have them cook it for you.  A local boy made 
good and has purchased the property, and intends to change things 
again.  So... next year, Mother has consented to letting me try again.  
I told her, she is NOT allowed in the kitchen under any circumstances.  
"Even Breakfast?"  NO.  You go out for breakfast.  "Oooh, okay!"

We will see how that goes.  She is afraid of Morton Thompson's Black 
Turkey, which I really want to share with them, especially now that I 
have made friends with the last American butcher in the Valley, who can 
probably get me the extras I want.  [Wow, that was a tangled sentence.]
