Thanksgiving At Last...
I Hope you are not surprised, Dear Readers, to learn that Sally May is thinking about Thanksgiving dinner. She is determined to gather with her loved ones this year, and she has been baking pies. "The pies are almost done, Annabelle," she says, "and as soon as they cool enough we will go over to see Gramma and Grampa and Great-grandma and Great-grandpa and have a feast!"
Everyone in her immediate family was vaccinated, so it should be safe enough to get together. Well, almost everybody, she reminded herself. Annabelle was too young to get the vaccine. And her in-laws, Chip's parents had refused to be vaccinated. Yes, they are that sort of independent crusty old New Englanders. And I hope you will not be too surprised to learn that Chip was not entirely sure they should go. He wasn't sure his folks would be welcome, and didn't want to leave them home by themselves.
if you celebrate the Holiday.
