We always go to some friends' house. They're sort of "family," although not at all relations. It's a great feast, great conversation, great wine--just a good ol' time.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"

When I was married it was a big family event (her side)<br>You just eat and drink all day, the spread was the traditional Thanksgiving dinner menu "Plus" since they are Fillipinos there was all the ethnic foods dishes. You eat, chat take a nap then eat and chat again. Then take home enough food to last for days.<br><br>BTW that was the only thing I like about that Bitch, she could cook.<br><br>Now its just me and my daughter and my grand daughter. So its pointless to do the big traditional spread. Tomorrow looks like a very scaled down spread - instead of a whole Turkey we will buy the breast only that kind of thing.<br><br>
my family will be enjoying dinner at my mother-in-law's house this year, along with her brother and his wife. This is the first holiday season in over 11 years that I don't have to drive from Las Vegas, Nevada to Phoenix, Arizona and back... and I'm loving that!!!<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red><br>Visit me here!

We are going to dinner tonight at a neighbor's house. They always put on a wonderful evening.<br>Tomorrow, we go to a friends house. I don't know if I am too thrilled about that because it will include a bunch of their family and kids. Not that I don't like kids, but there will be at least 10 and that spells trouble.<br><br>
Somehow I will pack myself, my elderly mother, her wheelchair, my spouse (6'4") and 1 apple cranberry pie into my little Honda and make our way to Connecticut (@2 hour drive) to his Grandfather's house. Good folks and good food. The Patriots/Lions game on TV. And then drive home again.<br><br>[color:purple]If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.</font color=purple><br>
