Good food, Four-legged friends, Good feelings

grilled turkey breast for slicing

As planned, we journeyed to Bide-A-Wee Thursday morning for Thanksgiving. The turkey was the best we’d ever tasted, white and dark meat included.

We met Brett’s grouse, of the Grilled Grouse at Bide-A-Wee. It was very soft and its neck still moved.

Some of my favorite pictures from the day were of Brett and Mary’s wirehaired Griffins Annabel and Lily.

I am always trying to get Lily’s picture at Bide-A-Wee, but she has a knack for looking away at the precise moment the shutter clicks. This time I tricked her:

Above, the tablescape after dessert on paper plates licked clean (Dinner was had on the loveliest of plates by Theresa.). Days later, the afterglow remains:


  • Light or radiance remaining in the sky after the sun has set.
  • Good feelings remaining after a pleasurable or successful experience.
As in:  “basking in the afterglow of a Bide-A-Wee Thanksgiving”.

You can see more pictures of our Thanksgiving feast in Brett’s post at Trout Caviar.
