No, don't have any unattached close friends and none live near me at all. So...I will just be alone. My neighbors (who I don't know beyond a hello when I walk my dog - are all married with families,etc and don't really know them. People tend to keep to themselves with their kids and spouses.
I had planned to take a bus to a restaurant (or actually two buses each way) but forgot that the buses in (my area) are not running on Thanksgiving Day. No restaurants to walk to - the closest one is not open on Thanksgiving anyway. I do not have a car - so rely on public transit and cannot afford to take a taxi to the restaurant that is open, as it would cost too much for me to take taxis both ways.
I probably would feel kind of out of place in a restaurant alone on that day anyway. I do eat out alone often and don't mind it but on holidays I think you do tend to feel a little out of place.
I might just buy a frozen TV dinner with turkey in it at the store on Wednesday as the buses are running that day.
Looked in the supermarket a few days ago - and all they have a large turkeys - wish they sold little ones for single people who will be alone on that day. I don't like those little packages of deli meat with turkey - would rather get a frozen dinner to heat up.
Looks like most people have posted here that they will be doing various things with family or spouse, their kids, etc. - so I do wish all of you a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
