Merry Christmas to All! And to All a Good Night!

Jenny and ThanksgivingThe immediate SwampFamily arrived home today for the Christmas dinner.  SwampSon smoked a turkey.  Not Thanksgiving, but an anonymous store-bought turkey.  Thanksgiving is still attempting to stalk magnificently around the yard, but his tail feathers are getting a bit tattered. It is hard to get a good stalk on when the tail feathers are all tatty. At sunset, Thanksgiving stalks back to the pen he shares with a rooster or two who want to share the safety of the pen at night and a turn at the ever filled bowl of food.

It was wonderful having both my mom and little brother here. It had been about 35 years since we had last all had a meal together.

    Heh. Brother was complaining that he hadn’t seen the Grinch this year, his favorite Christmas movie. Swampman wanted us to all watch HIS favorite movie, Lethal Weapon, which I immediately vetoed.

      Since it was just me & Duffy (he was on call and his phone was silent all damn day, so he was kinda testy when I interrupted his tv watching by speaking), we watched a retrospective of Animal House and The Sons of Katie Elder. Then a rerun of a PGA event from last summer. When he went to bed, I got to watch Holmes On Homes.
