    A Bear family Thanksgiving

    I got the holiday off, because Bear Jr hosted Mrs Bear & me.

    He and his wife did an outstanding job with the 14 pound Turkey & all the trimmings.

    I got a couple pictures of my Grand-kids below too. Diesel wouldn't hold still long enough, so I used a picture of him from about a month ago.

    Hope you enjoy the pics.

    Turkey All Done:

    My oldest Grandsons (Cheech & Chong----Smokey's Brothers):

    My youngest Grandson (Diesel):

    The Victim. This was the best Turkey I ever had:


    Dinner for 4.
    From left to right: Corn, Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potatoes with Pecans, Turkey, Mashed Taters. Also on far side is Cranberry Sauce, and nearside with tongs is Stuffed Mushrooms:

    Thanks Doug!!

    Sorry about that---I should have listed that. Now I listed what's on the table above the picture.

    The dish in the middle, with the tongs is Stuffed Mushrooms.

    Thank You Neighbor!!

    The Grandkids were all crazy!!

    Thank You Very Much, Leah!!!

    The food was great !!

    Diesel was a good boy all day.
    Cheech & Chong weren't though-----About a half hour after that picture, they were laying on the exposed ceiling beams. They jump up on top of the fridge, and then over on the beams. Sometimes they fight up there & one or both fall from the ceiling!!!!
    Their Brother Smokey (our cat) is a good boy. He lays with his Pappy & watches football games.

    Thanks Carlos!!

    Our leftovers are gone now.

    He's a Piece of work.

    My Kid says he's not allowed to take Diesel to the park without his wife, because Diesel is such a Chick-Magnet !!![​IMG]

    Thanks Stan !!!

    He really is a nice Pup !!!

    Thank You Reinhard,

    Diesel likes to make me laugh---He's such a character.

    He wanted to get a Silver Lab, until he looked into then, and found that they had a Genetic problem that effects both their health & their disposition. I think he said they call them Dilutes.

    Awesome looking spread Bear. That view of the smokers with the lake and woods in the background could be a postcard!
