Thanksgiving Morning

Supermom just got up from her computer after outlining and printing the cooking schedule/menu and she is now back at work on Nutcracker costumes.  I don’t need to have the BBQ ready to start cooking the turkey until 3:00 p.m.; dinner at 6:00 p.m.  This year we are going to try letting the legs and thighs warm up at room temperature for two hours prior to cooking, while keeping the breast on ice until the last minute.  Supermom had wanted to try a hen turkey this year, but they were all gone by the time she got to the store.

This morning while I was out with the dog I saw three satellites in the sky at once.  The sky was crystal clear and I was trying to memorize the locations of two triangles of stars relative to the Big Dipper and Polaris and Orion so that I can figure out what constellations they are in.  The first two satellites were in almost the same place inside one of the triangles when I noticed them, one moving east and one moving southeast.  Then, I noticed a third satellite crossing the paths of the first two and moving from south to north.  I haven’t been able to figure out what satellites they were and now I can’t remember the exact time of the sightings, although it was somewhere around 5:45 a.m.  Also, I haven’t gotten around to the star triangles, yet.

It was almost 61 degrees at about 8:30 a.m. when I was out brushing the pool; supposed to get up to 78 today.

Here is a picture of Jack Kerouac’s 120,000-word original manuscript for On the Road .  If you zoom in you can read it and see his pencil marks.
