Orphan's Thanksgiving

Everyone should have someone to share Thanksgiving with. If you'll be on your own or just a couple on Thanksgiving, we'd love to have you join us. Bring your beverage of choice and a dish to share. I will make the "core" meal – turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy. You bring the dish that most says "Thanksgiving" in your family. Come even if you forget to RSVP, but it would be helpful if you could give me a call me by Friday, November 17th, if think you will be coming so I know how big of a turkey to buy. Lesley James, (916) 761-0825. Call for the address.
