The Friday Five for November 17, 2017

1. What are you thankful for this year or are you just happy it’s nearly over?

As always I am grateful for the continued good health and prosperity of my self and my family.

2. When you have a traditional family get together, be it Thanksgiving, Christmas or for some other reason, is there a dish that you just have to have or something is missing?

I guess I'll say the dressing because it's the only time I make it all year long and it is one my favorite dishes on Turkey Day, especially the oyster kind.

3. Do you like turkey?

I'm not particularly fond of turkey though I do like a hot turkey sandwich with mashed taters and gravy a day or two after the feast.

4. Do you anticipate or dread family get-togethers?

I most often approach the whole holiday season with dread. A few family members really dislike get togethers and are pretty vocal about that dislike. And, it's not like we don't see each other ALL the time. We are together a lot. There is always so much noise and chaos that I am unable to really talk to anyone and it takes me a couple of days to recover as well.

5. If you could get your family/friends to listen to you at one of these gathers, really listen to you, what would you say to them?

Be kinder to each other and to everyone you meet. Stop complaining about what you don't have and appreciate what you do. And please slow down, life passes quickly enough without the busyness people create in their lives today.
