Game Night

Family game night
Gets way too competitive
When we play for beer.

And Give Thanks

Stopping for a beer
Amid mad preparation
I have to marvel

20 pound turkey wrapped in bacon
Photo and haiku by Captain Hops.

References: It’s Thanksgiving day in the US and that means enjoying family and food… and all the liquid refreshment that allows that to happen. I know I have a lot to be thankful for when I am staring at a 20 pound turkey completely wrapped in bacon and ready to go into the oven. I will try to take an “after” picture when it is finished cooking, but in my house something like this doesn’t usually sit around long enough to do that.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Preparing for the Family

After the cleaning
Curled up on my comfy chair
With Westmalle Tripel
