Frost-protected figFirst stop --- Thanksgiving feast part one with the Bristol clan. I particularly liked seeing Mom's frost-protected fig tree. Hers produced quite a few more figs than ours this past year, either because of her warmer city location or her impressive insulation job.

Next stop --- stocking up on groceries for our Thursday feast. (More on that in tomorrow's post.)

Then home at last to rest up for the second day of Thanksgiving --- pie day!
