Happy Thanksgiving!

Anne was all business today, all kitchen business and no monkey business, especially from me. Unfortunately, events out of our control intervened. The main sewer line backed up this morning and this occurred before any serious grease spilling had begun. This is the second time in two years that this has occurred. I wouldn’t blame Rey if he began to wonder if his Missouri relatives are better suited to the use of outhouses, rather than the new fangled invention of indoor plumbing. I can only say this, “Shit, so much for mankind’s greatest invention, besides Facebook still works.”

Roto-Rooter sent out a man right away, one of the advantages of being ahead of the curve. He cleaned out the line and we were good to go again on plumbing’s biggest day. Even with his speedy work, the whole sewer thing put a crimp in my schedule. Anne does almost all of the work on Thanksgiving, but as the saucy sous-chef, I am expected to help. Anne graciously gave me permission for a bike ride, but time permitted only a miserly 10 miles. Still it was a beautiful day for a bike ride. Dinner went off without a hitch and the turkey was perfect. Happy Thanksgiving all!

Lately, I have been liking other people’s blogs. WordPress facilitates this practice. I find that this is akin to saying hi. You say hi to someone and they say hi back. You like their blog and they like you right back. Generally, I cull through the posts under the photography tag. With half a million posts everyday, there are plenty of good ones to choose from. I found a new blog today, the photogenic side of life. New in the sense that it has only just begun. The pictures posted so far are amazing. What I really loved though, is a link to The SLR Camera Simulator. This highly functional flash App allows for meaningful experimentation with all the standard manual camera settings. It is fun to play with.
