Thanksgiving with Paolo

“And we’ll trade you a drumstick for $1000 in chips at Seneca Casino.”

I never was never big on holiday traditions.  The turkey was OK but the bird’s table top autopsy made me a little queasy.  What I liked best was my Mom’s stuffing.  She made it with chopped Italian sausage, raisins, small pieces of turkey and her own stuffing mix.

Now every Thanksgiving I make a big casserole of her stuffing (although with Stove Top) and bake it.  I then serve it to myself with cranberry sauce and cole slaw – my favorite vegetables.  And today for dessert I’m having red Gummi Bears and dried plums.

I will also probably have some drinks of vodka + grape juice in a crystal wine glass.

The freedom of living alone and doing whatever I want is intoxicating and priceless.  I’m very thankful for all the things I don’t have.

    People don’t own things; things own people. For example, my sisters are slaves to their (cell)telephones. I agree with you totally; be grateful for what you don’t have. Relish your freedom.

    Agree Completely-except wine and dried plums-yesterday? When you can get out of the shitter you can answer your e-mails-tomorrow.
