Mom agreed today that it would be better, (wiser? smarter?) not to take the quick trip to Utah for Thanksgiving dinner. Just too much car riding for such little time with you. You know how much she likes holidays, birthdays and gettogethers and this is going to be very hard on her. I would go if she insisted. She tears us thinking about she and I alone on Thursday. We are both so happy that the Phisters and Matt & B are on their trip and will see SoCal and stuff. We will just miss them for the week. I had all worked out in my mind how I would pretty much fix a small turdkey dinner and thought we could make it a fun day etc. Before I could tell her of my plans she asked if we could go to the Holliday Inn for their buffet. I said yes, although I think going out to eat would be sadder than eating at home together with music and our livestock. But, supprise, I told her that Justin Hays (a guy I work with) invited us to their house to join their big family dinner and mom brightened up and smiled and said that would be great. There will be about 20 of us at his house and he is roasting and deep frying turkeys and all we need to do is bring pickles and cool whip. So that will be a new experience for us. I guess I will have to pass on the Coronas. (standing joke with me and Justin) We'll see Twilight Wednesday night or Thursday and maybe another movie also. Soo, we will be okay. It would be nice if you think to give mom a call on the phone. Looking forward to Neil in December.
