Thanksgiving In Peoria

I haven’t had a Thanksgiving dinner with my family for 19 years. I always came home at Christmas, so I didn’t come back for Thanksgiving. But this year I’m back and my sister had dinner. I brought cheese, crackers and salami. I didn’t want to bug my family and take photos all night, but here’s a few I snuck in during the festivities.

Before we went to my sister's, we had drinks at the infamous, Jerry's Bar in my parents basement.

Here's my contribution, cheese, salami and crackers for an appetizer.

And here's my dad carving up the Thanksgiving bird. Gobble, gobble!

Judging from the look on my sister's face, I thought I better put the camera away before I got thrown out of the joint! From left, my parents, my brother-in-law Phil, my brother Tom, my nephew Greg and my sister Terry who did a great job of cooking a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner! I hope you all had a great hollerday!

And don't forget, December 10th is the date of the new Peoria blog. Be there or be L7!

Bonus Photo From Ragin' RR!

Ragin' RR used to be a frequent commenter at all three of my blogs, but computer problems have silenced him. We do keep in touch via email and he recently sent me this photo of an old Circus magazine cover. I used to read Circus, but don't remember this one. Sadly, not all of these people made it through the '70's. Cheers to Ragin' RR and to all of you, have a great week!

I see you are really giving that new kitchen of yours a workout.

November 26, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercsp

What? No Chicken in a Biskit?! Looks good anyway, Marty! Happy Thanksgiving, Bok Bok!

Your brother Tom has a look like "one more picture and Terry is gonna snap". Hilarious and sweet at the same time. Circus mag cover, wow, Mick Jagger has not aged very much, Stones did a show in London last night and he looked twenty six., time is on his side.

@GENE: Me too, he says his computer might be up and running on December 10th for the new blog. I hope he can start commenting then! Miss having him in the group!

@Bobby D: It as a great family Thanksgiving! In about two weeks I'll be debuting the new blog, stay tuned!

@csp: That's not my kitchen, it's my sister's!

@Ash: I couldn't find the Chiicken in a Biskit at the store! That's my favorite cracker!

@Al: Ha ha ha! Good observation! I heard both Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman were at that show. I'm going to look for videos on YouTube after work.

Awwwwwwww! How lovely! Happy Thanksgiving, Marty! XOXOXO

Cheese and crackers, hmmmm? I was about to make a wise ass crack concerning your generous nature, but then I just sent a gift order of liquor filled chocolates to a lady friend in Canada....and the shipping cost more than the fucking chocolates! So I guess I understand the need to economize this season. Jon Stewart has a similar sense of humor to the late John Wayne Gacy apparently...

Love it!!!!
love the cream mag!
i once exchanged an email with Jon Stewart.. i sent a friend a forwarded joke and it got forwarded to him and he wrote me back saying it was hilarious.
i love the wombachers..

November 26, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGidget

@meleah: Thanks and I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your family!

@Jaws: That's what my sister told me to bring and I do what I'm told because I'm the baby of the family!

@Gidget: That's too cool about Jon Stewart! And the Wombachers love you right back!

Hope you had a 'Trypttophan-tasic' Thanksgiving Daddio!

November 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenter"Boris"

@"Boris:" Thanks Daddio, mine was great and I hope yours was as well! Let's yak soon!

Are you SURE Terry wasn't born in NYC? She definitely got that Bowery attitude thing goin' on, like "Whaddya.......one more pikcha kid and yer gonna be warin' 'dat camra." TOO FUNNY!

Looks like good time was had by all, but remembering some of my family outings, I'll bet there were some awkward inquiries as to "how you are doin' Marty?". ALWAYS made the day extra-special for me......then out to the back yard, blow a dube........and love was ALL around again. ESPECIALLY just before dessert!!! :+)

Keep on chooglin'!

November 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDrBOP

@DrBOP: I hear you about Terry's expression in that photo, too funny! A good time was had by all and I definitely will keep on chooglin'!

I just noticed ....... there is a Stroh's beer can at your place on the table !

I didn't know that stuff existed anymore !

November 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@GENE: Yup, Strohs is alive and well in Peoria!

November 29, 2012 | Registered CommenterTripping With Marty

Don't know why but that Turkey is making me crave it!
