It’s already Thursday here, and I am cooking a turkey as I write this. Several of us Americans, and one close Syrian friend, will be gathering late this afternoon for an evening dinner. I am bringing the turkey and stuffing. Others will bring the complementary dishes. Mmmm….
Then, we plan to watch a movie and/or try to stream one of the NFL games across the Internet, hoping to create a sense of Thanksgiving back home. Thanksgiving is my personal favorite holiday. So, I always want to make something out of it…no matter where I am at. It’s not quite the same here; but, just as when I was in the Navy overseas, you do the best you can to make it is nice as you are able.
To you and all of yours: A VERY HAPPY, HAPPY, SAFE AND ENJOYABLE THANKSGIVING!!!!
And, if you have a chance to give holiday greetings to one of our men or women serving in the Armed Forces, especially overseas, please do so. As someone who has served overseas, in the military, during the Holidays, I can tell you just how important it is to know your friends and family are thinking of you.
Please use a designated, sober driver if you drink during your festivities.
