I'm really guessing, so I have little hope of a passing mark..

1 C,  2 B,  3 A,  4 C,  5 B

Cherry or blueberry cheesecake.

For the past two years I attended an expat Thanksgiving banquet buffet dinner held  at a 5 star hotel and posted photo essays here about the experiences, but the dinner was not held this year.  Anyway, I wish all a Happy American Thanksgiving (the Canadian one was last month).

There were some wild turkeys in the yard the other day. Down by where I have the trail camera, too. I'd post a pic or two if it had caught any of them. Unfortunately, there weren't any on it when I checked. They must not have walked right in front of it.

A, C, C, B, B.

Cherry Pie..

A little levity if I may. Governor Cooper has made mask wearing mandatory even in our own homes if other than family is in attendance. AND police can ticket you if you have more than ten people. He made it a class 2 misdemeanor which carries up to $1000 fine and even possible jail time. (cops aren't going to enforce it except in extreme cases)

So here........

If you look across the street and there are twenty cars at their house, before you call the police, go sit down and have a glass of milk. It's good for your teeth. Know what else is good for your teeth? Minding your own damned business.

Happy Thanksgiving to All.
