    By the standards of most my Thanksgiving was very mundane.

    I have no children , no immediate family except my mother, no real friends only casual acquantences.

    However, this Thanksgiving was beautiful in it's simplicity

    I spent the entire night last night in ER with my elderly mother
    I spent the entire day today visiting with her.

    She won't be here forever.

    I cherish each moment

    For the second year in a row I managed to convince the wife that it didn't make sense to do a big turkey for just the two of us, now that the kids are off doing their own thing - one of them halfway across the country. So we bought a Honeybaked ham and potato salad and she baked a pan of Mexican cornbread. She got her pumpkin pie and I had to settle for apple because the stores aren't selling my favorite, mince pie, yet.

    Before dinner we watched the greatest Thanksgiving movie ever - Planes, Trains and Automobiles. (Fun trivia: Olivia Burnette, the actress who played Steve Martin's character's freckle-faced young daughter grew up to play the Mysterious Homeless Woman on 'Sons of Anarchy'.)

    Take care.
