Thanksgiving Day Mishaps Over The Years

The Bird That Would Not Get Done

I put my turkey in the oven at 5 AM  and it did not get done until 2 PM. We sat down at the table and had our Thanksgiving day prayer and we ate everything else except for the turkey. We played some board games and we visited. I kept checking on the progress of the turkey until it was finally ready for us to eat at 2 PM. The turkey had been injected with water to add weight to the bird. I had purchased two of those turkeys but the next one was put in the oven at 3 AM.

The Plight Of The Pumpkin Pie

I had made a pumpkin pie from scratch that I put in the oven on Thanksgiving Day. The pie looked very good as it baked away in the oven. I took the pie out of the oven to check on it and I decided to let it bake an extra 20 minutes. The Pie looked perfect and as I was removing it from the oven carefully all of a sudden it slipped off of the baking sheet and land upside down on the new carpet in the kitchen. I cleaned and cleaned the carpet. We ended up having ice cream.

The Refrigerator Stopped Working At Noon On Thanksgiving Day

Hustle and Bustle was done of moving refrigerator items to my freezer in the basement and my old GE refrigerator from the 1950’s in the basement. Food items were starting to thaw out. I got the food items moved in the nick of time. The refrigerator upstairs was working fine at 9 AM and by 11:30 AM things were starting to move south. I did not have to throw anything away luckily and I was very Thankful for that.

Relatives That Would Invite Themselves

We received a card from them in the mail on Thanksgiving day at 11 AM that they would be at our home for Thanksgiving day lunch. A plane had crashed in our field that morning and luckily no one was hurt except for the plane. It was a very busy Thanksgiving day. We put more food on the stove and everyone had a Thanksgiving day meal.

Grandma And The Gravy For The Outdoor Cats

My grandmother loved to make gravy. After we had all of the gravy that we wanted Grandma went outdoors with the leftover gravy in a skillet. One of our outdoor Toms jumped in the skillet and Grandma was covered in gravy from head to toe as the skillet flew in the air and landed on the cement. Most of my cats were covered in gravy but they had a cleaning party as they licked each other from head to tail.

Even With Mishaps In Life There is Always Something To Be Thankful For

I am Thankful to have God, Family, Friends and Cats In my life. All of my Thanksgivings over the years have been memorable and wonderful get together’s. Be Thankful and Grateful for all that you have been given in your life. Hoping all of us have many more Thanksgivings.
