Some folks around our burg might think the cloudy, cooler days are inclement. I think they are wonderful. I’m at last catching the autumn spirit. The liquidambar trees are dotting our landscape with their rich colors of burgundy, orange and gold. The damp air makes their leaves even more brilliant.
I’ll be celebrating this Thanksgiving with daughter Heather and grandchildren Catherine and Ryan. Son Chris and his family are still in England, so they are inviting about 20 of their Brit friends to share this American custom with them.
I actually am looking forward to doing the turkey ritual and preparing all the side dishes. I can already smell the delicious aroma of roasting turkey. I hope that all of you have a very memorable gathering with family and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Social and cultural events have been swirling and of course our town folk are in the middle of the mix. Just the other night I saw Elza and Michael Gross, with their granddaughter Allison Budde, at the Pantages Theatre for the opening of “Riverdance.”
