DOWNTOWN — Hundreds of people braved the cold and a downpour Wednesday as they stood in line to get a hot plate of turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy at the Burbank Salvation Army’s annual Thanksgiving dinner. Burbank resident Maria Nelson, 79, rode the bus and walked in the rain from her senior home to get a portion of Thanksgiving trimmings. Her clothes were soaking, and she stuffed her shoes with paper towels. Nelson was first in line for the dinner. But while her trip to the organization’s facility at 300 E. Angeleno Ave. was challenging, she said she didn’t mind because she was with her friends from the senior home, and knew she would be eating a delicious meal.

"We take for granted that everyone can have a nice Thanksgiving dinner," said Ron Shively of the Burbank Sunrise Kiwanis Club.

ANNE LOUISE Maybe it's me, but is it really a problem that I don't know how to cook a turkey? I recently saw a cartoon featuring an optimistic bunch of the aforeme- ntioned fowl who were pretty sure that by the next generation of humans, no one would know how to cook a turkey anymore. I think it might be true. It could be that I just run with the wrong crowd, but I don't know anyone my age who can cook a turkey. Certainly I can't do it. Growing up, I only saw it done once a year, on Thanksgiving, and that annual family ritual didn't provide the best of training.
