What were your best and worst consumer experiences this week?

What are your favorite Thanksgiving memories?

One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories is recalling the times my family traveled to Cashmere, Wash., to celebrate with my great-aunt Mable Kenyon and my aunts and uncles.

We’d load up our 1938 Chevrolet and head off for the one-hour trip to Cashmere. When we moved up the Columbia River to the Wenatchee Beebe Orchard Company near Chelan, it was a two-hour trip.

I also enjoyed cooking Thanksgiving dinners when my kids were older and my parents weren’t gathering with my father’s family anymore.

Then, when my parents grew older, I had great fun preparing Thanksgiving dinner for them. I’d put a turkey in a big ice chest, with ice, and head to Wenatchee.

After my dad passed away, I’d gather items to take for the dinner, but buy a turkey, duck, or goose at the nearby Safeway when I got to Wenatchee. I spent a lot of time with my mom after my dad died. We enjoyed each other very much.

What were your best and most enjoyable Thanksgiving celebrations? Being with relatives or friends? Traveling to visit loved ones? Volunteering at a community gathering? Taking a vacation?

Leave me a comment below about your Thanksgiving memories.
