We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, for which, of course, I am thankful. There was none of the delightful acrimonious drama that one so often reads about in the advice columns. No one misbehaved, there were no ill feelings. But then, there never is, as we all pretty much love one another. There is occasional drama, as the time, years ago, when my grandfather went to the bathroom which is on the back porch, and accidently locked himself out of the house. No one missed him for quite a while. When someone finally did, and went to let him in, he was sputtering with rage. Another time, my mother said that she was too hot, so Dakki suggested that she take her clothes off, and she did. Not quite all of them, of course, but enough of them to seriously embarrass her daughter. There was none of that this year, but it was a fun, lively gathering nonetheless.
