Happy Thanksgiving!

It looks as though I shall be having a lonely and Turkey-less Thursday this year. So - as so often! - I must live vicariously through my friends and acquaintances.

Get out there and gorge yourselves for me!

And a happy holiday to you all!!

[Yes, it is disturbing to see poor little Woodstock being fed a slice of turkey, isn't it? Surely this must be some Internet spoof, rather than a Schulz original?]

For the first time ever, we spent the day with no one else. The Missus's kids ate with their dad and stepmother, and other family and friends were all out of town. We ate at an upscale restaurant in town -- a nice change!

According to the Wikipedia article on A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving:

After they leave, Snoopy and Woodstock go to the doghouse and cook up their own traditional Thanksgiving meal that includes a turkey complete with all the trimmings (they pull apart the wishbone, with Woodstock getting the bigger piece). Over the end credits the two friends each devour dessert: a large piece of pumpkin pie. They then sit back with contented smiles as Woodstock pats his full stomach.... The scene in the end credits where Snoopy and Woodstock are eating turkey is cut in later airings, going straight to them eating pumpkin pie during the end credits. On Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2008, the "turkey eating" portion was shown in its entirety.

So the answer is our old friend: It depends.
