Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Tomorrow is the day. As usual, I'll be working at the hotel (from 3 PM to 11 PM). I like working at the hotel during the holidays which I usually do each year. I have found from past experience the nicest people check in at the hotel during the holidays.
No disruptive and complaining wedding guests.
No summertime guests asking "do you have a pool?"
Just nice people. Usually the grandparents or other relatives who come to town to visit relatives but can't take the kids 24/7. I don't blame them. I couldn't take screaming kids running through the house round the clock.
My last sit down Thanksgiving dinner was at my friend Bob's house in 2002, twelve years ago (where does the time go?) Bob and his partner Jim used to have Thanksgiving dinner for all us gay men who had no where else to go. While the dinner was always chaotic it was nice to get together with the guys and have an old fashion Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. And Bob did the turkey (two turkeys because usually the attendance was about to two dozen). Bob is gone now and Jim lives in an assisted care facility. That long tradition is ended. I heard a new Thanksgiving dinner now takes place at the MCC church. That's good. However, I won't be going. I wish all those attending a wonderful time of fellowship and a hearty meal.

Hey, don't knock them. They're good plus they satisfy my hunger. Besides, it's not important what I eat on Thanksgiving, what is important that I am thankful for my lot in life.
To everyone have a very happy Thanksgiving.
