Sandy had a pleasant Thanksgiving this year. Kevin and I not so much. We had a tradition of having Thanksgiving at Bear’s house every year, with him and Rick doing up a wonderful turkey and fixings. Sandy always made the pies, and we all chipped in with a side dish of some sort. Well, with Bear’s passing recently, things have changed of course. Diane, Bear’s fiancee, invited us to join her family this year, so we had planned on that. Unfortunately, Kevin got sick on Thanksgiving day with the flu, so I stayed home with him and Sandy had Thanksgiving with Diane and her family (and Rick, George, Mike and Ginger, who always attended Bear’s Thanksgiving). Sandy said it was very nice, and brought back some great food, so I had planned on having a late thanksgiving dinner the following night. Go figure–I must have picked up Kevin’s flu bug and I was sick all through Friday and Saturday! It was horrible. The terms “explosive” and “projectile” would work well in the description of events, but I won’t bother to gross you out any further. I’m much better this morning though, and Wii Fit says I lost over 10 pounds in the past week! Wow, what a diet plan. The flu sure is cleansing! I plan on having a nice Turkey dinner tonight…finally. Then it’s back to work tomorrow. So much for a long four-day weekend. Click to the thumbnail image to view Sandy’s photos.
