Happy Turkey Day... or Ham or even Beans...............

We left for the airport around 10 am.... flew out of Honolulu around 12:30.  We were served a tiny bag if pretzels and a soft drink on the plane.  Maybe because it was Thanksgiving the stewardess gave us each a tiny package of cookies for desert.

No matter...  we got into Los Angeles...  had quite a time getting a ride to our hotel.  Long story, but short version is that shuttles aren't always as they are said to be.

Finally got to our hotel about 9:30 pm (LA time) and got checked in.  The restaurant had closed so we picked up our Thanksgiving meal in the lobby convenience store....
We grabbed their last ham sandwich, 2 bean burritos, a couple of beers and a small bottle of wine.
Took it to our room and had our feast.

You know what?  It doesn't matter at all what our meal consisted of.  We are thankful for our family, our friends and most of all that have each other.   

It's a great Thanksgiving!

That's All for Today!

  3. Amen--it doesn't matter what we eat, we are thankful for our family and friends--and as you said, each other! The cowboy and I met when we were 38 and 48 (he's older :)) and I often say, "I wish we could have met when we were younger so we would have had more time together." His reply, "we probably would not have liked each other when we were younger."

  4. What the meal consists of is not as important as who you share it with. I bet you were thankful to be back in the States.

  6. Your attitude saved the day. We're having our turkey tomorrow, as we traveled all day on Thanksgiving.

  7. Ah, yes, it's what you share and with whom. The bottle of wine didn't hurt, either.
