Obligatory Post-Thanksgiving Post


My family is, er, different, as if you couldn't figure that out. Thanksgiving is no exception. My parents, who have never prepared a turkey, but usually ham, for Thanksgiving anyway, have been going to the Cracker Barrel Restaurant in recent years. We have been going with them. Actually, I have only been twice because this is the first time in the last 4 or 5 years I have been off of work, but my wife and boys have been going regularly.

So we met in the parking lot, got a table, and ate our traditional T-bird. How un-American is that? But, you know what? I like it this way. No prior preperation, no expensive grocery purchase, no massive stack of dirty pots and dishes, and no setting up extra chairs and tables in the kitchen and overheating the house with all the cooking. Why do that? We go out and eat, then have the whole afternoon/evening to talk, sip coffee, watch movies, NAP!! Whatever! And to all you (2 or 3 who actually read this) traditionalists out there sadly shaking your heads, I say BAH! ;-)

Who knew I'd be a "traditionalist" in your eyes? Heh.
