My family always runs the Turkey Trot road race on Thanksgiving morning. This is our 15th year; it has become a family tradition. Our daughter had to miss it this year, though, because she is a nurse and was scheduled to work.

She’ll eat the turkey dinner with the family, though; and that is enough for it to be a happy Thanksgiving. Wishing all my readers a happy and thankful day too!

    A very Happy Thanksgiving, Mag dear. But what chicken is thanking for?

    • Thanks Indira. The bird is a turkey; it’s like a chicken, but bigger. Turkey is the traditional American family dinner on Thanksgiving. We enjoyed eating ours 🙂

  3. Trust you have had a great Thanksgiving with family — having an early morning run takes away some of the guilt of a loaded Thanksgiving plate! Enjoy the rest of the Thanksgiving weekend!

    • Hi Becca, yes, we loaded up our plates and had a great dinner. My mother-in-law makes the yummiest baked potatoes. 🙂 Enjoy your weekend too!
