Thanksgiving Day 2014

Ron's Apple Pie - still warm!


With the smell of freshly baked apple pie wafting through the air here at Casa Tipton-Kelly I want to wish one and all a very Happy Thanksgiving.

I got up early this morning to bake an apple pie for our wonderful neighbors The Murphys.  The Murphys are the BEST neighbors we have ever had . . . . . EVER!  They're having family over today so I thought I would make one of my signature apple pies for compliment their Thanksgiving repast and to show our (me and Bill) appreciation for all they have done for us the seven years (this month) since we moved to Delaware.

Last night at the hotel wasn't too bad.  In fact, in spite of the wind and rain from the Nor'easter that tore through here, all the hotel guests were nice and pleasant.  I have found in my fifteen years of hotel work that the holidays almost always bring out the best in hotel guests and last night was no exception.

I go back to work today at 3 PM.  Nothing special planned for Thanksgiving dinner, just the same old same old.  I shared some forty year old family pictures on Facebook this morning which should please family that I haven't seen and probably will never see at Thanksgiving again in my life.  I am so glad I've taken these photos.

So to one and all, Happy Thanksgiving!

The pie looks delicious! I go into work at 3 myself. The boys and I are having our own Thanksgiving before I head out. ENJOY THE DAY!

XOXO MAC

MAC,
I don't usually brag (well, not much anyway) but my apple pies are to die for. Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Ron,
The pie looks wonderful, can almost smell it through the computer.
You and all who work on this holiday really deserve the "thanks" in Thanksgiving. For all those who work throughout the year I say thanks for making my life a bit easier. Most people that I deal with in retail and medical fields (lately the center of my universe) are accommodating and friendly. Thank you Ron for your wonderful blog. You bring back memories that give me a warm and fuzzy feeling. We've never met in person but I feel I have known you forever.
Happy Thanksgiving
Jack

Thank you Pat. You're always so kind and generous. I'll have to make that apple pie for you someday, it is vegan.
