It was a wonderful Thanksgiving - Joe & our neighbor Richard were each deep frying turkeys for their families. Once two birds were ready we headed to our daughter's brother & sister in law's for a feast of good food, good company, and plenty of entertainment. We missed our son & his girlfriend who celebrated Thanksgiving in Mexico (a tradition we used to do when the kids were younger).
Here's Wesley with his 1st turkey drumstick and his first Lime Fluff made by his Great Aunt Rhoda:

10 on 10 November
We have 2 french businessmen staying with us as they attend this week's Aerospace Convention at the Seattle Convention Center. This is Dominique. It's his very 1st visit to the United States.
This is our friend Jacques, and his 3rd visit to our place. We're hoping to attend his big 50th birthday party in France next spring.
Here's Norbert, he's french American, and runs the show. He's our good friend:
In the evening we all attended a reception at TheRed Barn of the Museum of Flight:
Me and the frenchies:
This was really interesting to me as it's the opening payroll and general ledger entries of the Boeing Company in 1916 (the year my father was born). The opening capital of the company was $100,000.00, which was a lot of money back then. William Boeing owned 98% of the shares.


During the day I made of a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough to bake tomorrow for our 2 guests to take bake to their families. They have croissants and tarts, etc. in France, but they don't have chocolate chip cookies (not even chocolate chips)!
