Soft Packing

Sweet Spuds
Ice Cream a la Manchuria
Punk Slider
1937: The Soviet explorers at the weather camp on the polar floe had on American Thanksgiving Day: canned soup, canned vegetables, smoked sausages, dried meat, cakes, tea.

1969: The Apollo 12 astronauts just splashed down in time for Thanksgiving. In their cramped quarantine trailer aboard the U.S.S Hornet, they sat down to turkey with cranberry sauce and a choice of cherry or pecan pie, before watching the movie “Good-by Columbus”.
