Since the options listed don’t include our plans, here they are.

We are still concerned about Covid, but want to be with close family. We are having a much smaller gathering than usual at our home, with family only, and the entire gathering (except using the bathroom) will be outdoors. Most importantly, everyone attending our small gathering will be both fully vaccinated and boosted. We are very happy to have a significantly downsized gathering, it’s going to save us a lot of money and work, we will actually have free time to socialize and relax, and I won’t have to set an alarm for 3:15 AM to get up and put a 30 pound bird in the oven. Happy Thanksgiving: )

Dinner with wife and sister who lives down here as well and Facetime to NJ. Traveling this year will be pure h3ll. My dinner will be a limited 1 time a year"Gobbler Bowl" from WAWA! Yummmmmm. 5000 calories of deliciousness but not as good as my wife's turkey & stuffing when she used to cook for 30 people...... ok, she just left the room ..... maybe a bit better.
Wawa Fresh Food Menu: The GOBBLER bowl, Cold Hoagies, Sandwiches | Wawa

Default Dinner on The Barbara Lee Riverboat

Mary and I are eating on the Barbara Lee Riverboat. The owners family gets together and cooks the meal on the Riverboat. The food is all home made, fresh and hot from their small kitchen. After they get rid of the customers they have their Family celebration.
With our familys spread all over the country we find this a great solution. A group of us have also done this on Easter. The food and scenery are fantastic.
Happy Thanksgiving Len & Mary

I think we're going to drive to the east coast and hope to find a country restaurant open somewhere along the way, if no that's okay too. It's a good day to site see on the back roads as our family is all up north and we'll do a little face time in the evening when we return.

Gee. Sounds like fun. Will you be wearing masks the whole time and social distancing as well? What if the weather is cold and rainy? Will guests have to show their vaxx card and proof of booster?

This will be the second year I will enjoy the thanksgiving feast to go from Cody’s. All the basics are included, but I will supplement with a couple homemade favorites!

Default Thanksgiving

This will be the 14th year we have opened our home to those in our neighborhood with no plans or family to be with. This is potluck and everyone brings a dish, two turkeys and ham lots of desserts and we are good to go. 30 neighbors, all vaccinated and we are mostly outside. It’s fun for all.
