23 Days

Twenty-three days until Thanksgiving, Bernie says. Not sure how long that is, but I know one thing: Thanksgiving is Bernie’s favorite holiday. Short and sweet, he says, all about food and drink. And family – he forgets that part, sometimes. Like last year when Bernie’s mom and her boyfriend came. Have I mentioned Bernie’s mom? A piece if work. She lives in Florida, plays a lot of golf, eats at the early-bird specials. Turkeys are birds, so there’s probably some … what’s the word? Connection? But it’s not coming to me at the moment. Bernie deep-fries our turkey out on the patio. Delish, let me tell you. Even the fire department guys thought so to, that time they had to rush over.

Still waiting on the autopsy report. Also not too late to vote in the German trailer contest – www.derbuchtrailer.de

    In Alaska, the great outdoors can become your freezer. So you buy can buy the turkey early and don't have to clutter up your refrigerator/freezer. At some point it goes into the arctic entryway to start the defrost process. Perfect plan until the year the dog grabbed it on the way out of the house….

    B.Stover is obviously not from Texas where we can deep fry just about anything. Fried turkey is fantastic! But it's not breaded like chicken, just marinated, seasoned then fried. It's making us hungry for the holidays!! We can see why Chet enjoys the holidays if Bernie is "frying it up!"

    Gus and BooBear…and Bernie: Do you fry the turkey whole or in pieces? And what is in the marinate?

    I THINK I voted for the trailer. I loved the letters that Chet kept sniffing up. Did the letters make up words? Not being fluent in German, wasn't sure.

    So I hit the button underneath the trailer. I hope that was correct.
