What's Happening in Stonyford: Christmas Bazaar is today
Thanksgiving has come and gone.
It was great for us, both at home with kids, and the turkey dinner at the Grange, where we had the whole traditional Thanksgiving spread. We had enough food to feed everyone who came, and delivered a few dinners to people who have a hard time getting out.
We had the most help in the kitchen that we've had in a long time. Debbie was full-time pots and pan washer. Serving line was Wayne, Shirley, Laurie, Jane and I, not all at once, of course. Everyone helped to cook. Special thanks to Chuck for building a vanity cabinet for the men's room, and hooking up the sink and faucet.
Next Tuesday dinner at the Grange will be spaghetti, salad, bread, and dessert. Enough turkey for a while. Let's have a change of pace.
Christmas Bazaar is today at the Town Hall, from 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. There will be lots of crafts, baked goods, raffle of quilt and other items,snack bar for lunch. Come on down. I hope the big storm will be over for Saturday, or at least calm enough for you to get out.
It was this time last year that Jenn Anderson called and asked if she could interview me for this paper's "Know Your Neighbor" series. So Isaid sure. She came up and asked a few Thanksgiving questions. It didn't occur to me to edit my answers.
I said I like my green beans plain instead of junked up with mushroom soup and french fried onions. And I like the jellied cranberry sauce from the can, not whole berries with orange or pineapple. So one of the readers called my daughter Laurie and asked her if she made the beans or the cranberries.
So Laurie found out I had slammed her cranberries and daughter-in-law Becky's green bean casserole, out in public for everyone to see. Sorry family. It turned out to be an ongoing joke for quite a while.
I like the other daughter-in-law Kathy's sweet potato casserole. Actually, I've made that part of my Thanksgiving repertoire. I got accused of playing favorites.
The moral of the story is to be careful what you say if it's going to be in print. Some politicians have not learned that yet.
