Granati provides a very cool orchid photo to get us going this evening.
*After 6 years of marriage and three children including a new one under foot, ErinG/Idaho Native is going to prepare her first Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow here. (Yo, Granati, I want to hear your report Friday how you helped your sweetie as much as possible.)
*CDADave/Thin Air doesn't like the high-rises that are going up near the waterfront, and he's contemplating his own mortality after learning that two former classmates have died here.
*Kristin Hoppe/Not So Fast provides a link to explain why we should lift a glass tomorrow in memory of the late Ruth M. Siems, who made life preparing a Thanksgiving meal easier for women like ErinG, here.
*Bre/To Blog or Not to Blog shares a horror story about working in Moscow's Wal-Mart the day after Thanksgiving a few years ago here.
*Bearable Bob reacts to a critical rebuttal to a comment he posted on another blog here. Funny stuff.
Also: Family Phil opines on Jude Doty who moved to Idaho to get away from Washington's child labor laws here; Digital Fog parodies the Cruise/Shields tiff here; and Mari Meehan/Dogwalk Musings and Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind both sent the same nifty Thanksgiving Day greeting here.
