    I hope we all have a nice day. I'm headed into NYC. My mother-in-law is elderly so we're having food brought in to her apartment. Trying to keep things super low-key, probably our last one. We all agree it should've just been a Zoom. But, I am really not maudlin over that, more concerned with the logistics of going and coming back as early as possible - my alarm is already set for 0300 tomorrow.

    I really expect honesty in reporting here at AE.

    • Who got drunk and started talking politics?
    • Old grudges resurfaced?
    • Call a relative fat ?
    • Anybody throw food or storm out?
    • Crying fits in the other room?
    • Did the food suck or was it good?
    • Did the damned dog do something heinous in the middle of the meal?

    We need to hear about these things here ..... well I do anyway :)

    We just went to a fancy restaurant with my mom's family, no drama. My parents are divorced so we go to a few small gatherings.

    We had a good dinner, plenty of leftovers to take home...I left Kobi at home since he doesn't play nice with my mom's little dog...Almost hit a whistle pig when I left her house, damn thing stood there on the edge of the road like a statue, it didn't move an inch even when I drove by it lol...One of my brothers that I haven't seen in ages got fat but I was nice and didn't comment on that one and one of my nieces announced she was pregnant...The food was great and the company was fine, it was a nice Thanksgiving dinner...

    We had a weird and very subdued one, probably the last for my mother-in-law. My wife, her sister and brother really went out to put something together at her apartment - and it came off very, very well. Glad we did it but it could have gone either way - she can become very 'agitated' to put it mildly. I spent my day on the train with my nose in a book, which I really don't mind too much at all. The book part anyway.
