I am super proud of the two oldest women in my immediate family. My wife Dawn prepared a full-blast Thanksgiving turkey dinner with all of the trimmings in our new house for 13 people – our first holiday in the new abode. A total success all the way around, as evidenced by the bodies lolling about on the floor for hours afterward, eyes glazed, midsections protruding.
Simultaneously several hundred miles away, my daughter Kristen prepared a similar turkey dinner for 19 of her Americorps cohorts stranded away from their families. They even had to do some random plucking of their rural southern Virginia bird. Way to go, sweetie, can’t wait to see you in three weeks.
