Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

I’m running late today because we have to get ready for Thanksgiving, which means finding time for extra shopping.

My sister has, thank God, quit that crazy job she had, the one featuring no holidays all year, so last year we didn’t get together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even New Year’s. But now she’ll be home, so we will have a family dinner. The only drawback will be a couple of hours on the Garden State Parkway, beloved of kamikaze motorists.

Friday we can relax with our own small turkey dinner and Godzilla vs. Megalon. We’ve had that movie as a household tradition for so long, I forget how it started. How do things like that get started?

We’ll continue providing blog service as best we can, and I hope most of you can drop in for a few minutes and say hello.
