Happy Thanksgiving, Argh People


I realize that not all Arghs celebrate Thanksgiving, but I’m still grateful to all of you; you make this a better place with every comment you leave. So today, I’m thankful for the Argh People. And for gravy. In that order, which considering how much I love gravy is saying something. Here’s hoping you have a wonderful holiday season wherever you and whatever you celebrate. As my mother would say, I just want you to be happy.

I’m thankful for the community of Argh, where we can come support each other. With snarky love. Thanks, Jenny.

I’m thankful my daughter announced in her third grade class that while we support the idea of Thanksgiving, we do not support the attempted genocide of the native peoples. I got a note from the teacher. I framed it.

I’m thankful that all the hard work is done, so all I have to do is sit in the kitchen and smell the good stuff. Also that I have fun roommates to celebrate thanksgiving with since we’re all an ocean away from home.

I’m thankful for a mostly quiet morning, a 2 year old niece who isn’t afraid of me given she’s only seen me 3 times, and that Jenny became an author. Not necessarily in that order.

Hope all of you have a joy filled day & have much to be thankful for!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Even if you for celebrate, I hope you can take a moment to be thankful or the things that are good in your life. I’m grateful (no particular order) for my small but awesome family consisting of the 2 humans I love most and my 4 crazy dogs. I’m also grateful for finding this community, and having the guts to post, also a huge thanks to Jenny for your imagination, talent and bringing the Arghs together. There’s more, but for now, the last thing is I’m thankful/happy/proud? that I had the strength to remove the people/situations from my life that were negative. And now, to the wine!
Happy thoughts all! 💜🎉

I’m mystified by your addiction to gravy, Jenny. Maybe something has been lost in translation? (Although I’ve tried pumpkin pie, and you can keep it. Sorry.)

But I’m always thankful for this community. Feels like a great support to being creative, and to enjoying life. So thanks everyone.

Jane, if you’ve only had the pies sold in stores, no wonder you don’t like pumpkin pie. I love homemade pumpkin pie, but I’ve never found one sold in a bakery or store that’s as good.

Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite treats of all time. You probably haven’t gotten any good pie, JaneB. Or you were fed what is not actually pumpkin but butternut squash in disguise (look on your labels folks: in some brands, butternut squash is used instead of pumpkin).

And gravy is always good.

Yay for Argh people! I’m thankful for a wonderful dinner at my friend John’s house…that he did all the cooking for, and I just had to bring bubbly (although, tragically, when he was packing up my leftovers, he forgot to put in the big jar of…sob…gravy). And thankful for great authors and great books to read, with Jenny at the top of both lists. Happy Thanksgiving, Jenny! And thanks for having us at your table.

I didn’t have thanks giving dinner with John or miss out on his gravy, but everything else Deborah said, I couldn’t have said any better.
Thank you Jenny, and everyone who writes and shares. :-)

I am most thankful, especially today, for my oldest sister, with whom I can work seamlessly in the kitchen and who thinks 4 pies is the perfect amount for 9 people (apple, cherry, mincemeat chiffon and pumpkin cheesecake tart).

My in-laws prefer my Pumpkin Cheesecake with Praline topping to pumpkin pie so that’s familiar, as are apple & cherry, but mincemeat chiffon!? Aunt Snack please share more info regarding this concoction.

The PTA at my grade school held a bake sale on election day and one year my Mom bought one of these. It was such a hit at home that my Mom tracked down the baker and begged for the recipe. You mix the mincemeat with dissolved gelatin and rum and chill 1/2 hour. Then you fold in whipped egg whites and whipped cream. Put it in a baked pie shell(or graham cracker crust) and chill until set. Top it with whipped cream and garnish it with cherries if you like.
The great thing about this pie is that you get the great taste of the fruit and the booze without the traditional heaviness.

As I was the chief cook and bottle washer today, I’m thankful the food was edible, the leftovers are in the fridge and the kitchen is cleaned.

Thanks to the people of Argh for thoughtful, witty comments and a very BIG THANKS to Jenny for bringing us all here.

Thankful for the friends and family with whom I shared great food, and also thankful that the clean up is done, except for making soup. Tomorrow my husband will be thankful for the soup.

Thankful for the delightful argh/refab folks, extended friends and all people of good will.

Can I promote a fellow new author here? She’s a friend of mine and is having a Black Friday .99 cent sale on Kindle today and tomorrow on her first book. I think she’s a great writer. Please take a look.


Thanks. I hope I haven’t overstepped. She’s been a friend of mine for years and I want to help her out as much as I can.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. :)

Happy Thanksgiving, all. I’m thankful to have two of our three kids at home, a great friend sharing our table, and lots of wonderful gustatory pleasures. Now to fall into my turkey coma…

We had a great Thanksgiving on Saturday — 68 expats, friends, families and babies, pitching in to make the feast. (The babies worked hard on providing atmosphere.) We really had a lot to be thankful for this year. The Canadians were a little sad that it wasn’t THEIR Thanksgiving, but I always say, organize it and we will come and help out! Three turkey days in three months is not a bad thing (-:.

As always, lots of thanks to you, Jenny, for all you do!

I am thankful for the Argh community and for Jenny and Jenny’s books (and the books of the authors I’ve discovered here and on the connected blogs). I’ve made good, close friends. I’ve learned more about writing. I’ve given and received support. This is a great place.

In addition, I’m grateful to my friends for letting me be Auntie to their two kids, and to those two kids (one just started college this year) for enjoying my company and wanting me around.
