Happy Thanksgiving!

Growing up Thanksgiving was always going to my Aunt Kathy and Uncle Bill's in Brooklyn.  We'd all pile in the car very early, arguing over who is sitting where and head out.  We'd get to their house and wake them up.  Aunt Kathy would make breakfast for everyone.  Then we would head out to Manhatten for the parade.  It was always cold....

After the parade, we'd go back to Brooklyn and hang out.  The kids would watch tv or play with our cousins, Debby and Tracy.  Bill Jr was always much older and didn't really play with us.


Then we'd eat, visit some more and head home....That is always what Thanksgiving is to me....

Once we were in high school, my brother and I asked if we could stay home, so that we could go to the annual Turkey Day game against the rival high school.... and we didn't go to Aunt Kathy's again.  She now lives in Florida and I miss those times...

Happy Thanksgiving!
