Bump to 2005

I would like to give THANKS to my familia , Mrs,Bamboo, Tiki man Jack and Bonzai Blake....for understanding that this will be the first year that I will be with out them on that special day. THANKS BOO FAMILY !!!!! (boo hoo boo hoo)

I would also like to give thanks to the tiki gods for making me so god damn busy that I can barley babble on TC anymore.

We'll be working at the Kona Club on Thanksgiving Day. Anyone in the area driving by...... just put some leftovers on the bench outside and we'll find em.



Ben - we surely miss the barley babble from you these days. It's just not the same...We tried Kashi babble from Tiki-Bot, but he just pissed everyone off. We'll bring you guys some leftovers on the way home from my sister's, we're taking 3 kinds of pie, pumpkin, pecan and cutie (insert photo of Carter here, I can't post pics, duh...) I cracked the whole family up with THAT one this morning!

Thanks to the Boo family for giving US Bay Area folks Ben this year, so we can have a tiki tiki Christmas and many more in 2006! Happy Tofurkey Day!

OK, it wasn't 70 degrees, but it was still nice! We took some turkey and trimmings to Ben and Al, and I will say that in a few weeks, the NorCal people will have something to be thankful for! The Kona club is coming together quite nicely. Thanks Ben and Al, for working through Thanksgiving, away from your loved ones, to give us an amazing tiki bar!

Ahhh... So much to be thankful for!
i hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
The Royale clan had a fantastic evening at Trader Vic's in S.F. Mmmm... turkey from the Chinese oven!
The food was excellent as were the drinks and the hospitality was first-class (of course).
Aloha,

Actually, I saw a History Channel show which had a spokesperson from one of the native American nations describing how Thanksgiving is a day of mourning for them because it was the beginning of the end of their culture.

On a different subject, Thanksgiving initially was a harvest feast; A day of thanksgiving would have been a religous and more subdued day.

Given all of that, the basic moral of human beings helping human beings, strangers helping strangers, is the most important message of any holiday we have.

Also, most of us probably could use such an opportunity to reflect and give thanks for the good things we enjoy.

Forbidden Island will be closed for T-day.

TofuJoe and I picked up our Now & Zen unturkey today and have been cleaning the house in preparation for my mom's immenant arrival (although, I don't know why; it'll never be clean enough for her, regardless).

Happy T'day, everyone,

We will be smoking a turkey breast & a ham, roasting a turkey in the oven (for those diehards who want dark meat), & hosting dinner for 16 (11 adults & 5 kids). I hope the weather is nice, so everyone can go outside.

I'm also doing apps-salami, country ham, numerous cheeses & crackers, hot crab dip, & (for the main meal), a vegetable side dish that I love-sauteed cabbage, mushrooms, sauerkraut, bacon. Everything else has been farmed out to the guests- one is doing m. potatoes & green bean cassserole, the other is doing sweet potatoes & pies. My BIL is doing breads & rolls (I have backups). My only wild card is my MIL is coming in & will do her cornbread dressing (& I have to get all the ingredients)-she likes to do 2 sheet pans, but I haven't figured out how to tell her to downsize (ok, I'm scared, I'll just let her fix what she wants)...I think it'll be a great T'giving, regardless...
