Say Hello To My Little Friend

This little turkey came home from work with me last Friday and has been thawing in the refrigerator since then. It was still a little frozen when I opened it up this morning. Right now it's roasting in the oven for about 3-1/2 hours. Did I mention that it's a 19.65 lb. turkey? This sucker is huge!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope there's lots of good food and good company, whatever you're eating.

My friend Mary is in Hong Kong with our friend Yam right now. I can't remember if they'll be celebrating later today, or if they already celebrated yesterday. I can't wait to hear all about it.

I had a great time with my brother and my nephew last week. We managed to make it down to Milennium Park this year (last year it was so cold we turned back before we had walked a mile). I have to say, it was pretty cool. I managed to take some pictures from inside the bean.

That's the very top of it. My brother, nephew and I are smack in the middle of the line of 7 people at the bottom of the circle. I'm in the middle. Recognize me?

After admiring the inside, I went outside and became fascinated with the skyline as viewed from the bean.

Pretty cool, huh? Those are all from the north and west sides. The line of people at the bottom of the last picture are watching ice skaters in the plaza down below. They were taking a break (maybe to sweep the ice?) just then, so I didn't get any shots of the skaters. I was getting really annoyed at the cheesy music they were playing while we were walking around until I realized it was the skating music. It was just as annoying, but at least there was some context for it.

Oooh. I can already smell the turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
