Scratch one turkey

Well, the day passed quietly around here. I went to some friends' home for Thanksgiving dinner, while collinsmom went to Lafayette to join her siblings in wishing her mother a happy 87th birthday. I was pooped all day. After walking the dog, I fell asleep watching the Denver-Dallas game.

collinsmom tells me her brother had a similar problem to mine several years ago, and it took him six months to recover from it. Ugh. Well, nothing to do but get through it.

Ho. Ho. Ho.
