Thanksgiving Weekend


Here in Canada we celebrate our Thanksgiving a little earlier than our neighbours to the south. Maybe because our harvest is a little earlier or our winter comes in a little earlier. Other than that it is much the same, good food, and family gathering to give thanks for the great life we live here.

Today we headed up to Rocky Mountain House for dinner at Lacey and Clayton’s for dinner with them and Miss Ella and her other Grandma and Grandpa Don. Like I said good food, good company.

I thought I better throw in a picture of dinner for my friend Rod down there in Kansas City and who better to showcase than three of my favourite girls, Brenda, Miss Ella, and her mom Lacey.


Other than Thanksgiving we are getting ready for our journey towards Dogpound South a couple of weeks from now. We have the motorhome put away and are stowing stuff away in our Living Quarters trailer. Strange how all the stuff we had in our 40 odd foot motorhome won’t fit in a 10 foot short wall LQ. Oh well, what more do we need than our toothbrushes anyway. Well I think Brenda may want a few more things than that BUT…..


  1. Nice composition on the lake photo.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving John & Brenda... Nothing better then sharing it with family & friends!!! I know you're getting excited about your journey to Dogpound South!!!
    Have fun & Travel safe

  3. Happy Thanksgiving and Dinner looks great, good to be enjoying such a bountiful meal with family.Be safe out there. Sam & Donna....

  4. Looks like another wonderful meal! Tell Brenda we have stores in the US, she can buy what won't fit!

  5. If only there was a way to shrink and un-shrink everything, that would solve the packing problem. Good luck with that.

  6. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Brenda and all your family!!

    I was checking the dishes on your table to see if we missed anything here, but it looks like we both covered just about everything needed for a terrific Thanksgiving Dinner!

    Looks great!

  7. Yep, don't see any Bolonga sandwiches in that spread. Doesn't seem fair that you Cannucks get two Thanks giving dinners..Hope it was a special day!

  8. So you'll have two turkey dinners? How cool is that?

    With your new trailer, it kind of gives the word "stuffing" a new meaning and there's no turkey involved...
