Well it's not quite Friday yet here in Canada, but I am a newbie and feel most welcome .... Thank you!

It has been a whirlwind 2 weeks since Mom had her colons copy and subsequent dx.
Life has been far from normal.

That being said I am very much looking forward to the Easter weekend, my brother, his wife and two sons are coming to visit Mom& i and stay with my family. I do have to work this weekend ( I work for an airline, shift work, sigh) but luckily they are short early morning shifts so I can still visit with my brother and family.

happy Easter to those that celebrate, and Happy Spring to everyone!

Pepe, I might have dreamt this as I keep the tv on all nite, but I thought I aaw a news clip where they were having a night parade for Spanish soccer team and they were holding the trophy out front and one of the players dropped the trophy and the bus ran over it...does that sound familiar??j It was sadly funny........I was almost sure it was Spain...sound familiar??? Or maybe I dreamt it.....you are the only person I know from Spain so I thought I would ask....Pat

Well, I just sold my last puppy of our litter of six & one more that we were holding for someone will be picked up tomorrow (Friday).
My family will be going to the good Friday service at our church in the evening & then Easter Sunday, we will be at my sister in law's house for a meal and just getting together. I don't know yet what I'm doing on Saturday- maybe just resting!

Turkey is sometimes served for Easter dinner, but we are having prime rib roast. You still need to come over + have a good North American turkey dinner.

If your wife deserves it does that mean you are just waiting in the car? Plus I am offended about our turkeys.

you live in Canada so you must know about French taste, and I live 60 miles away from France ,even our language Catalan,is closer to the French than to the Spanish so we got similar tastes ! you know we like smaller things here ,even I recognize they can be disgusting somewhere in America
You know petit escargots,petit lápin ,petit poulette, and petit sparrows ,despite we let it for the crazy French , they drown them in wine and it seems they are delicious! hahaha! Again beg the pardon to your turkeys I didn't want to offend them ,and less to got an international conflict for that! and less with one of my most appreciated mates in the board ! So I promise if I got the chance I will try an American ostrich some time! ...ohh sorry mean turkey! .
Hahaha!.
Not in the car yet I'm going to be disconnected in the morning and then to the Spa!.
Love you Anne!

I am going to have to check with the French Canadians I know + see what they think of turkeys (maybe they buy the smallest ones they can find here). By the way, I love French cooking + have many French cookbooks. I was in France 4 years ago; my only trip to Europe. My oldest daughter sometimes calls me her French mother, even though I don't have any French in me. I seem to love all things French - food, decorating, fashion, etc. I did not like the dog poo on the sidewalks, LOL. I would love to see Spain + Italy; also Scotland + England (where most of my heritage is). I am glad you are willing to try one of our (either American or Canadian) turkeys. As long as we don't let you have one of the drumsticks you'll never know the size of the turkey anyway. By the way, are you getting ready to move here; you are are staying up very late; I don't know how you do it. Love you too, Pepe!

I am a newby, and enjoyed reading al this about the Turkey. Dutch born and educated, I also had to learn the Turkey bid here in Canada. I personally I prefer the Italian and french quisine and ofcourse our Indonesian Rice table. BUT... Hollidays is Turkey and ham. Turkeys come in all sizes even smoked in a roll. Bacon and lots of butter on the inside and outside will keep then tender. And yes they are often the size of a Ostrich. LOL
Yes pepebcn I also am a soccerfan and noticed the debacle with the Trophy, sad but also so funny.
Eastermonday is my operation to remove my blokkage high left in de thecolon. It will be good to know this little Turkey is out of me. (lol) sorry i could not resist.
I wish everybody a Blessed Easter and many more to come.
You all have been such a blessing to me allready.
Hugs, Marjan

Pepe has been making fun of our large North American turkeys for awhile - I guess since Thanksgiving. Now he has finally agreed to come try one - progress!

Going to Stations of the Cross tomorrow, watching Passion of the Christ made by Mel Gibson (oh that movie makes me cry so hard and watch it every year at Easter time) and celebrating Easter with our kids and grandchildren at our daughter's house. Yup and the Easter bunny is coming too :) Love this Holy Day. This is why I'm so passionate about this day - makes me love life. Happy Easter everyone.

Yup consider myself a devote Catholic. We go to every Holy day mass and fast and abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent. Say Novenas everyday for people on the board.

My children and grandchildren are wonderful. They will love the Easter bunny.

That is too funny you thinking about my turkey LOL. Yup I'm the one with the 24 lbs bird. Always remember you saying you could never get one that big in your oven. I'd be lost if all my kids had to eat a 10 lbs turkey LOL.

I'm Polish so we are making keilbasa and saurkraut for our Easter contribution at daughters dinner. Hate the saurkraut but we are making keilbasa later on Easter for our dinner without the saurkraut.

Happy Easter my friend. Thanks for thinking of me.

Hugs! Kim

My mother always ordered the biggest turkey she could get from a local turkey farm - usually 30-35 pounds (about 15kg). Always fresh, always tender. It was a major step for each of us when we (and then our children) grew bigger than the turkey. And whoever had the drumstick was paid $5 if they could finish it!

My parents had a commercial stove, so that the monster bird could fit in!

Happy Easter, all! We celebrate Passover (Pacques Juives).

Happy Spring.

Not really sure. Bill's taking me to dinner tomorrow night. On Sunday we have an Easter Sunrise service, and I'm singing "In the Garden." Hope I can hit the high notes at 7 am outdoors. We'll see!

I would love to say that I know I'm seeing the grandchildren for Easter, but I don't know what's going on there for sure. At the moment my daughter is a tiny bit of a disappointment to me, so we'll see.

*hugs*
