Gobble Gobble Gobble...
Thanksgiving at the BarliantWisch Estate

November 24, 2005

"Another fine mess you've gotten us into, Ollie!" And, yep, it was. This was one of the most diverse Thanksgiving weekends we've spent in many, many years. Perry was in China so Jody and Tex went somewhere else. Maria and the kids came here, as did her friend Gregory, his son Alex and his friend Wallace. On our family's side, we got Denise, Hava and Hugo. Jeannine and Hava entertained us with original song and dance. Original sin may have been preferred but what the heck... you take what you can get. Our crew, the Davila's and kids, kept the joint jumpin'.To say that the feast went well would be to descend into the depths of understatement. Here are some of the photos.

Joe and Seren send us Thanksgiving greetings from Lake Tahoe.

I'm sure the sign says something pithy.

This year we did a mesquite smoke. It is better than cherry.
