Thanksgiving 2009Posted: November 27, 2009
So we the Calverton contigency up at our house for Thanksgiving. Here is a play by play photo journal story of our T Day:
So here is where things get interesting. When I went outside to start deep frying the turkey, I discovered something. I heard in my head:” Houston, we have a problem.” See, I filled the pot up with oil and placed in on the burner. I noticed a small drip drip drip…….drip of oil from underneath the pot. “Oh, I must have spilt some on the side of the pot..oh please oh please let that be it.” Wiped it off with a paper towel. Drip Drip Drip…..drip. Crap Crap Crap…..CRAP! it is a leak. How in the hell does a pot just develop tiny pin holes? I could just move the pot over so the drip is not over the flame. Then again, I could also launch the turkey thirty feet in the air in a firey ball of flamey goodness.
Laurie donned her Super Wife costume and headed off to Gander Mountain. I love Gander Mountain…they were open on Thanksgiving! She went out to a bought a new pot and on with Thanksgiving. Crisis averted, only a minor delay.
This was the last picture I took. I was on my sixth Killians, and well, forgot to take anymore pics. We stayed up until 11pm playing Nintendo Wii. Grandma Rose kicked ass in bowling-just for the record. And golf.
