Family Time

This is Thanksgiving in the U.S.  It's special for us and is made more special because both kids will be here.  So not too much to blog about.  Eating too much, probably drinking too much, talking waaayyy too much!  I'll take a few photos but nothing I would  post.  Not only will they be boring photos but private as well.

My wife and I have been cleaning for the last couple days.  Did the windows and vacuumed in places that haven't been touched in the three years we've lived here.  Amazing stuff to be found!  Well, if it won't put you off your meal, it was mostly dead bugs and cat hair.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

Breakfast will be when the son & his significant other wake up; maybe not too early since they went out to the casino last night.  (I almost wish they would marry so I could just say 'wife', unfortunately I'm both lazy, detest the term 'girl friend' when the female is over about 20 and politically correct!)  Our daughter is scheduled to show about noon with various goodies to keep us happy until the turkey makes it's appearance about 16:00.  Who knows what will happen after that!  Maybe the kids will all wander off to the casino again and my wife and I get a little down time.

At any rate, for those of us in the U.S. Happy Thanksgiving and for others I hope you have a very good day!  Take care.

I never know what to call Brooks' SO either. I have kind of settled on "partner" but the grandkids don't understand the term. They are partners in their business as well as life so it kind of fits.

Family is so important Don and you are lucky to have all of yours together! Happy "American" Thanksgiving!

PS: Linda Lee does not know what to call me either. She will not use the term "dad" until they are married and "Croft" does not seem right for her either. She is presently trying out "Pops".
