The Best Thanksgiving: Uneventful

Any time you entertain in-laws, there's potential for hilarity. We had all the ingredients in place for Thanksgiving: my wife's sister, their parents and a table full of food. I'm happy (but, frankly a little disappointed) to report that Thanksgiving was a low-key affair. Everyone got along well. The food was good and the weather was nice.
The kids took the chance to catch up on their rest. All college admissions people know they've been studying relentlessly and making terrific grades while dedicating themselves to school activities and community service. We did take the time to engage in a spirited Guitar Hero competition. I'm the rank amateur in the house, of course. Mr. Facemelter took the time to give me some pointers.Then, we went to a Christmas tree farm and started the transition to the next holiday.There weren't even any ridiculous frustrations there. The Dallas Cowboys won, to boot. Nothing very entertaining happened on Thanksgiving, and that's probably the best thing we can hope for.

Oh, my God! It is left over, I assure you, from my daughter and her friends commandeering the big-screen teevee the night before.
