Thanksgiving dinner went off without a hitch. Well, we were a little surprised when we showed up at the cabin to find a tiny oven that the small turkey we had barely fit in, but we managed to get everything to work. Oh, and when Madeline went to light the pilot light, she almost blew us up. But other than that, everything went well and the meal was very tasty. Wally even got his own little plate of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc. He always gets his own plate at Thanksgiving.

This morning, we went for a big breakfast in town then drove up near the ski slopes to see what's going on. There was no snow in the forecast when I checked Wednesday and we had all given up on trying to go snowboarding. When we checked last night, however, the reports showed they were blowing snow and hoped to be open by the end of the weekend. It looks like the lower slopes will be open tomorrow, so we're planning on hitting the slopes for some fun. We'll see how it goes for me, since the one time I tried to learn about 7 years ago, I had a horrible time. By the way, no one back home in the Northwest believes that we manufacture snow down here. You can go to the Bear Mountain website to see webcams that show the snow blowing machines.

After checking out the slopes, we went to The Village and walked around, then shopping for some snow gear and groceries. Right now, everyone is napping after a big lunch of leftovers. Later, off to rent boards and boots and grab a pizza.

I tried snowboarding a few years back . . . I actually did better than I expected to, but could never get off the ski lift without falling - such a dignified lady I am

Unfortunately, no, Mobay is home. It would have been too much of an adventure chaperoning Wally, her boyfriend, AND her on this trip. Hope your T'giving was great!!
