This had to be just about a perfect Thanksgiving. The only thing that could have made it better would have been the presence of my oldest son and my son-in-law, but their responsibilities kept them away, so that is something to be thankful for, as well.
Here’s a list of good things from the day:
— Wonderful, wonderful food. Way to go Trese, Kathy, Tiffany, Tabitha, Mom, Sharon, and probably others.
— A great, big crowd of people I love, including the Louisiana crew.
— Beautiful weather so everyone could spend a lot of time outdoors.
— A double rainbow in the sky late in the afternoon.
— Kids running this way and that and having fun around.
— Laughter, laughter, and more laughter.
— Football, with wins for the Texans and RG III.
— Both of my parents are feeling well.
— A new, used lawn mower — the zero-turn-radius thing makes fun driving.
Thanks, everyone who was a part of this day. You make my life sweeter. Here’s the roster, just for posterity’s sake:
Trese, Tiffany, Tabitha, Meredith, Cameron, Gene, Hilda, Sharon, Shawn, Savannah, Skyler, Madison, Tristan, Kathy, Thom, Katherine, Avery, Lydia, Rick, Kathy, and Luke.
