Happy Thanksgiving!

22 Nov

Last might, as we were leaving for church the cat came roaring toward the door. I could tell by the way he had his head cocked that he was carrying a mouse, but we didn’t have time to chase through the house after him.  I found the poor creature’s head on the living room floor when I went to do my exercises later . Skull, neck, and the most infinitely tiny rib cage. (That’s the trouble with medical types. Everybody else is crying “Ick, ick, ick”, and we are whispering “Isn’t that fascinating?”)

On the way over to services, I nearly lost it when I saw a man floating down the street toward us. Darker than the inside of Shan-Wei’s boot, and this fool was skateboarding on a semi-major road. He’d just crested a speed hump, which just added to the “floating” appearance. Obviously not someone who should be allowed out alone.

Off to my brother-in-law’s home today for Thanksgiving dinner. The Squire and I will bring the mashed potatoes, broccoli and bread, BIL will fix the turkey, stuffing, and “sauer-crap”, and his younger son and family will provide the bread, salad and dessert.

The elder son will not be there, as his wife and new-born daughter are in the hospital.  I don’t usually mention names here, but we need some prayers. Baby Cardie was born 10 weeks early. She weighed in at 2.2 pounds, and is 15 inches long. By the grace of God, the doctors, and some heavy duty praying, she is breathing on her own, which is a tremendously Good Thing.  Still some distance to travel, though, so we can use some extra help.

Hope all of my readers have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
