BBBH spent three days in the kitchen preparing dinner for Sunday. And I hepped. We invited her children for an early Thanksgiving celebration. Four of Jo's children, with their spouses, and one grandchild, Alex, came to the feast. They all brought comestibles as well. Alex is the youngest of our grandchildren, and since all the rest are adults, he is the only one who was invited this time.

Alex's Aunt Shari brought her two little dogs, which together weigh about six pounds. Here's Alex with either Kenya or Tanzy. I can tell them apart when I see them together. They are litter-mates, "designer" dogs, Maltese x Shih-Tzu, or however that's spelled.

To say we all ate way too much is an understatement; and to say a good time was had by all is pretty accurate!

Our household extends to your household these wishes for a wonderful week: Happy Thanksgiving!

What happened to "Mild-mannered old man"?

Grace, I fully support and believe in the Second Amendment. I stand with the Supreme Court in its rulings on DC v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. However, I decided that perhaps the statement which "disappeared" was more confrontational than necessary.

Lin, yes. And there were so many desserts that I still have pie left! May yours be a wonderful week with family.

Shark, Thanks to you, and happy Thanksgiving.
