day 88 of 365

My very cool and funny brother sent me a care package of kitchen utensils and knives for my birthday (with the appropriate warning label inside). Why did he do this? Because at Thanksgiving he was shocked and mortified that I didn't have any decent carving knives and didn't own a meat thermometer. Me, nearly 52 years old (next week!), and not a knife sharpener in sight.

Here he is, struggling with the Thanksgiving turkey using inferior kitchen tools.

Thanks, Tom, for all my wonderful new toys! I promise to watch the sharp edges, and cook up something fabulous soon. xoxoxo

PS: I wonder what the postal service would have said if this box had been opened for inspection?

PSS: You can see photos of the whole Thanksgiving gang here.


  1. Awesome photos and I LOVE the paper, it's so funny!

  2. I love you knives shot but hate the incident on the paper.

  3. M. Hassan -- I guess you have to know me and my brother to appreciate the fake newspaper article. He thinks I'm a wacky hippy peaceloving treehugger, so the thought of me going doing such a thing is way off the charts. But in this violent world, it may be too close to home, yes? So, with a touch of my magic wand, it is gone forever!

  4. hahah, you got me there.. I thought it was a real incident, but luckily it was just a fake newpaper.. Well done!
