Happy Thanksgiving

26 11 2014

Tomorrow’s THE BIG FAMILY holiday – Thanksgiving.

So, what things make me thankful?

Well, I am thankful to be sitting at my niece and nephew’s kitchen table, safe and warm, after a wild three hours of driving in the first snowstorm of the season, including one brilliant, scary, WTF moment when my windshield wipers suddenly just stopped working.  Nothing like slush and snow and zero visibility at highway speed to make any trip more exciting! A quick pull off the road, a few minutes of cursing, engine off, engine back on, and – presto! – wipers working again.

I am thankful that, tomorrow, we’ll have a table groaning under the weight of delicious food.  I am also thankful that we won’t be sitting in a linen-bedecked formal dining room, stiffly making polite conversation, and pretending we’re all having a lovely time . . . I am thankful that we’ll be eating all that delicious food in front of a very big TV, where we will all be happily hollering at referees, coaches, and football players; helping ourselves to seconds and thirds and calling pumpkin pie a vegetable course.
