PARTYLINE: Some Thanksgiving leftovers before we take out the tree

Published: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 03:27 PM.

I hope everyone enjoyed a warm and thankful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Mine was all of the above, spent with friends enjoying turkey and all the trimmings. The diet now begins as the countdown to Christmas is on.

Jackie Lynch hosted 31 members of the Women’s Art Network at her lovely Emerald Bay home Monday night. Peggy Jones, Robin Wiesneth, Susan Alfieri and Susie Munz were some who festively enjoyed their favorite dishes and “dirty Santa.” 

Ladie Bea and Wayne Carlisle hosted their annual Turkey Day get together again at their new home, which was attended by many, including Tom and Dana Saffel, and Debbie Weant.

Leslie Provow enjoyed a fun early Thanksgiving in Sydney , Australia , last week as she fixed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for her friends “down under.” Leslie said her friends couldn’t figure out why pumpkin pie is eaten as dessert and candied sweet potato casserole is eaten as a side dish. “It is difficult to find a whole turkey there unless it’s Christmas,” said Leslie. “Frying a turkey is unheard of, but once they found out about it, they wanted me to fry a turkey, inside, on their stove. I told them they needed to dress as pilgrims for the feast, but I think they saw through that one! Funny Aussies!”

Susan Alfieri just returned from a two-week whirlwind bucket list adventure of visiting family and friends in her native Australia, celebrating her 76th birthday, her sister’s 80th, and attending numerous small reunions of high school and art teacher friends ... 50 years of memories rekindled from Sydney to Newcastle to Wollongong and back again! 

Tiffanie Shelton spent Thanksgiving in Birmingham.

Demetrius Fuller took his mom, Malpa, to Vegas for Thanksgiving, and a great time was had by all.
