I left to go on the boat this morning. We had our home-cooked turkey dinner on Sunday. And on Thursday, I'll be fixing a turkey feast on the boat, even if on a smaller scale.
This is our first Thanksgiving without my wife's parents being here with us. Her dad is in the nursing home. He is frail and can no longer walk. Her mom is living in their home with the two caregivers. So C. is going to visit both of them on Thanksgiving day. I have one of the Labradors with me. She and I will enjoy some beach walks and snoozing on the boat.
Not much new has been going on. I have been to my usual meetings, took in an open AA meeting, worked with those I sponsor, and have signed up for a class in Radar which will give me an endorsement for that on my Captain's license. Towboat work is slow now so I decided another course would be good.
We celebrate our wedding anniversary on Monday November 26. We were married in our twenties. Some days it seems long ago and others not so long at all. I know that we love each other a lot.
I'll leave you with a few photos from the day. Have a great Thanksgiving if you celebrate it.
