Reservation for Four Phuleeze...

...This is just about what it looked like around here Thursday...
Turkey going in the oven, stuffing being put together with my assistants close at hand. Demanding... uh...Sweetly offering a paw every few minutes to taste test the butter, raw turkey, turkey juice, creme cheese, green olives, gravy and just whatever I happened to be trying to do at any given moment.

A golden brown turkey... can you ask for more ? Crispy skin, juicy, and weighing in at about 14 pounds... There might be enough to last thru the weekend...
Hey- having to wait for me to vacate the kitchen chair so the oven can be observed verrrry closely... Well, that burns up a LOT of calories...Not sure what the girls thought would happen tho...
The oven door would fall off...
The roasting bird would accidentally slide out onto the floor..
Alice and Kuchi working in tandem would give mouth to beak recusitation ?
Maybe... All I noticed was that certain girls al-most got singed whiskers !!

Alice... Observing... Closely....


Kuchi... Ready for Taste Testing....

MMMnnnn... Looks Almost good enough to eat !


Of course, Babylon REFUSED to have any thing
to do with our roast turkey... If it doesn't come in
a packet and is inundated with 'gravy'... Oh Well-
She turns up her delicate pink nose !!
And in the end- Only will eat the gravy !!

I make a mean Pie too !!
Practically a Master Pastry Chef' !

So this is Alice all sleepy from her keen observations...
and of course, her three course meal !!

... Only one large missing presence of course... My good boy Osgood...
Sigh...
Thanksgiving was one of his most favor-ite days in the year... Turkey forever and the end not in sight.

...He would have had a tasty time... He is thought of so often... And still so missed...
