    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Thanksgiving Gatherings .....Please learn this lesson

    Good morning to all my American friends here on the forum,

    We have had a serious upsurge in COVID-19 cases here in Winnipeg and in other parts of western Canada.

    Most, not all, but most of the new cases are being traced back to large family gatherings held during our Thanksgiving Day weekend which was two weeks ago; right in that critical incubation period. Now we are facing a possible complete lockdown. There is no law against being thoughtless and stupid but there are consequences.

    To my friends down south; your own Thanksgiving Day is a few weeks away. Please learn the lessons from your northern neighbour or repeat the consequences on a much larger scale.

    This thread, in my judgement deserves its own thread in the off-topic category.

    Thanks Glenn... Sadly, it's just gonna be the two of us (and new puppy) down from a normal 10-14 at our place. Just don't see any sense in taking the risk. We've been pretty careful...... even grandkids not seen for 6+ months refer to my wife as the phone nanny 'cuz of all the facetime instead of in person!

    Sad you haven’t seen the grandkids in so long but taking the time to be safe will give you more time with them in the future. Kind of excited to see the words “new puppy”! Any photos?

    Thanksgiving will just be the 3 of us. Even thinking about not doing a turkey this year and
    do a prime rib or spiral ham (I am the only one that actually likes turkey)

    Cute pup, CP.

    I am thinking about doing a turkey breast rather than a whole turkey. There will be five of us and one doesn't eat turkey. If I do a whole turkey, it will be the smallest I can find. I'll be doing a lot less cooking and baking this year-might be the same dishes, but smaller amounts.
