Happy Thanksgiving!

Here, from DOG ON IT, the first mention (there are lots) of Thanksgiving in the Chet and Bernie series:

Albie Rose lived in the biggest house I’d ever seen, more like a palace, surrounded by high walls. A guy with big shoulders and a gun on his hip led us across vast green lawns to a huge swimming pool. On a deck chair by the pool lay a fat old man in a tiny bathing suit. His skin was oiled and deeply tanned, just about the color and texture of a turkey Leda had left too long in the oven one Thanksgiving. I tried not to look.

    Hope everyone is having a happy and heathy Thanksgiving. Just got back from a post-dinner stroll with young Theodore, and enjoying the light of an incredible full moon here in Chevy Chase.

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know I did. It is a lot of work though. I am tuckered. And I am babysitting my grandsons: I was ready for bed an hour ago? But the boys are wound up tight.

    Dawson, I think the answer is 1.
