Thanksgiving With Some Friends

Yuma, Arizona       High 89 Low 60

The weather here has been unusually warm the last two day. Yesterday the high for the day broke a high for the day that has stood since 1950. The weather guessers also predicted today would be a new high.

We have a lot more people here in our Park with more making it every day.

The Park put on Thanksgiving dinner for all the people here. They supply the turkey and gravy and each table of 20 have a pitch in for the rest of the dinner.

Lots of food for 20.

Cindy and some of the other ladies at our table decorated the table.
Some of the other tables were complaining that there wasn't enough food for everyone but our table had plenty to fill everyone up with lots left over.

Everyone signs up for a table showing what they are bringing so there won't be too many duplication's.

I don't know if it was because we took the carving knife and fork but I got elected to do the carving on the turkey. Everyone seemed to be happy with the job I did and I told them that I had over 50 years practice.

We had a few new people that I have seen but don't really know sitting at our table. Most of the ones we sat with I do know and a good time was had by all. Most of us had left overs to take home and we have enough for another meal.

There were about 280 people at the dinner.

I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving, we sure did.

Thanks for visiting.
