Bill and I spent a quiet Thanksgiving here at home. That's the way we usually pass the holiday. A long time ago I used to get caught up in the tradition of making a big Thanksgiving dinner but since Bill and I don't eat that much, most of the food goes to waste. It's not that I don't enjoy Thanksgiving, I do. But I just can't get up the enthusiasm and energy to go through all of THAT for Thanksgiving.

I'm starting to ramble here folks so bear with me. As I said before, today was a beautiful, fall, crisp day here in southern Delaware. A perfect day to get a head start on those Christmas decorations. I didn't feel that either today folks. I doubt if I will. Christmas wasn't a big deal in our home so I don't get as sad about missing my Mother during that holiday as I do Thanksgiving. I think why Thanksgiving always holds a special place in my heart was that was the first time I introduced My Bill to my parents after a year of two of estrangement with them after I came out. Of course they loved Bill once they met him. There were even times I suspected they liked Bill more than me.
In closing (finally), I hope everyone who reads this blog had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their friends, family and loved ones including their faithful "kids", the critters (dogs and cats).
