Thanksgiving 2012

This year’s Thanksgiving lunch was at Grandma’s house, the hens and roosters were fearful that they might be the chosen one.

Inside the chicken coop was dark and I had my ISO set to Auto, the above and below images were shot at ISO-10000 and they actually look real good for such high ISO.

Grandma got her bird and not from the hen house but from the grocery store.  This turkey made me think of Xieng Mieng 3 legged rabbit.  Xieng Mieng was a legendary Lao prankster who ate one of the rabbit’s legs and told the monk that the rabbit only had 3 legs.  Well it is obvious by the look of this bird that it only had 1 wing, I guess the modern day Xieng Mieng must have ate one of the wings.

And the modern day Xieng Mieng was not Bo by the way.

My contribution to the Thanksgiving table this year was the Egg-rolls.

Thanksgiving is also the time when we have a family get together, although we missed several families this year.

We have many things to be thankful for and hope you had a good Thanksgiving with your family.
