Spotted on a 5 train, does this make it part of the American Lexicon?

You can see all the pictures I took today, plus some other interesting new ones in my new photo galleries which are here
Some views out the windows...

Yesterday was a very good Thanksgiving. I spent it up at my friend John and Mikel's apartment in what I refer to as Upstate Manhattan (W 180th Street).

I schlepped up there about 7:15 a.m. but didn't arrive until 8:30, and who knew the trains would be packed at 7:15 am on Thanksgiving! I went up early to do some help with the cooking. My friend Mikel is a phenomenal cook, and I wanted to see what I could learn from him.

We made a turkey (did it in one of the roasting bags and it was perfect), small new red potatoes with olive oil and dill, stuffing, green bean casserole (with cream of celery soup instead of mushroom), cranberry heaven (which was heaven), lots of wine, sweet potato casserole (which had coconut mixed in, and a topping of crushed pecans). For desert we had an 18th century recipe for sliced lemon pie, and we had a pumpkin pie.

Had a great time with all of the guests. Joining us were Mike's cousin Kathy and her husband and their three children, plus the girlfriend of one of their boys. We didn't leave until about 11pm and of course the A train was running locally so it was a long ride down to Port Authority where I waited with Bern for his bus before heading off to Park Slope. Finally arrived home about 1:00 a.m.

And, the first picture of us together. I'm hoping it's just the first of many holidays with him :)
