Once Upon A Time; my neighbor's uncle set his house afire when the pot of hot oil tipped over on his deck while deep-frying the Thanksgiving turkey.
My worst nightmare was shopping too late the night before Thanksgiving and finding the grocery store's bare shelves.
Then, there was the year when we invited so many last-minute guests to the table, there wasn't enough turkey...we made turkey soup to share with biscuits!
Do you have a sad tale to share? or, a cautionary tale to ward off disasters?
