Tuesday, November 29 – We had our annual Thanksgiving gathering at our daughter, Carrie's, house. She's been having Thanksgiving at her place every year but one since she moved to Houston. Some years, nearly thirty or more friends attended. This year was a little more subdue with a small group of eight.
Her new digs, a loft in downtown Houston, was a perfect location and with plenty of room to set-up two long tables for dinner. But before dinner we had to have our traditional corn hole game. Nick brought over his game boards, and we set them up on the roof patio. A perfect location with perfect weather to enjoy some pre-dinner games and drinks.
Once Carrie signaled that the turkey should be done, it was all hands to the kitchen to finish up the many side dishes. Everyone chips it to help get the food on the table. Paul is the official turkey carver and dirty dishes washer, and they keep him busy with all the food preparations.
Of course, we had plenty of food and everyone sure enjoyed themselves.
After dinner and a little clean-up, we watched some football on TV, enjoyed a few beverages, and played board games. Carrie has a collection of games, and we always have a fun time with the “youngins.”
Eventually, we gave-up trying to keep up with the “kids” and headed home to the Houston Elks Lodge RV area to relax. It's hard work trying to be young again!
Marsha will be flying back to Ohio on Saturday, December 3, to spend some time with her dad, family and friends. Paul flies later in the month for a few days over Christmas. Bella will be well taken care of by a friend from the Elks Lodge.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
