Thanksgiving Memories

When I was a little girl, I didn't like turkey, so I ate peanut butter sandwiches and sang the Johnny Appleseed song with my extended family. I hated that song!

As an adolescent, I still didn't like turkey, but I remember listening to Alice's Restaurant with my family, the smell of mom's pies wafting through the house.

As a young woman, I learned to like turkey, but I worked most Thanksgivings in TV news, so would try to squeeze family before or after my shift.

Now I contribute a dish to our family potluck and offer a toast to the holiday, family and friends.
