Turkey Talk

Happy Thanksgiving, NewsViewers! Grab your coffee and join us for this first annual holiday version of Coffee Talk.

We’ll be talking turkey, if you like — perhaps with a side of potatoes and pies. White meat and dark meat, stuffing or dressing, yams or sweet potatoes, and lively wine — red or white?

I’ll be on the road today, traveling for my dinner, but my table will be full of vaccinated family — and one newbie to our family whom we welcomed to our world in March. I’ll be meeting him for the first time — my great nephew, who seems to be the cutest baby on earth, judging from the multitudes of photos and videos.

I hope your day is a feast of appreciation spent enjoying what we often take for granted — if it means the roof over our heads; faithful friends, family, and critters; good health; and last but not least, good humor.
