Thanksgiving 2009, ink and watercolor

Leftover turkey leg, ink and watercolor, Sketchbook 2009 Vol. 6 Page 1

It was a wonderful Thanksgiving with so much to be grateful for. We had a delicious home-cooked dinner with a turkey barbecued and smoked with cherry wood. Per tradition, I brought a big salad and as usual it remained uneaten. After dinner Rob played piano with Marcy on accordion in her former dining room (now art and music room), Tim dozed in front of a football game while Sophie and I sat at the art table where I did this sketch to start off a new sketchbook.

Later, when Bob the cat began playing piano (he jumps on it with a crash then walks across it repeatedly and hisses at you threateningly if you try to remove him) it seemed a good time to depart. We were all tired, happy and full, and called it a great day. (Best not to mess with Bob — he’s sent at least one person to the emergency room!)

  1. Sounds good! (And I had a cat like Bob – he ALWAYS finished an argument. ;-))

    • That sure sounds like Bob. There’s just no discussing things with him. My sister swears he’s actually really sweet…but she also warns everyone not to get too close to him. Jana

  4. Bob the cat sounds pretty scary. It sounds like a wonderful day, though, and that’s an awfully god looking turkey leg.

    • It was a yummy turkey leg, flavored with that cherry wood smokiness. I ate it for lunch today. Yum. And Bob is scary. When my mother visited he sent her to the emergency room after clawing her pretty badly. You just have to keep your distance and he’s ok. She reached out to pet him before my sister could warn her and he got her good. Jana
