Eat, Drink and Listen to Some Awesome Sounds…

kids at Thanksgiving 2015

And there’s the reason I’m in Virgina for the holiday. All the kids together—noise, laughter, reconnecting. And this may sound very odd to you, but it’s our normal, I’m staying with my ex and his girlfriend (lovely lady and a terrific cook!). It’s how we do things. No drama among the adults. Just a real satisfaction in seeing that everyone’s well and thriving.

My son and I aren’t “telephone people”. So, it’s only when we can manage to get together that we really talk. Mostly about the kids, his job, his new house—and the things we both love: metal music and B-quality sci-fi movies. I turned him onto White Buffalo (not heavy metal, but an awesome voice!) and he had me watching videos by Highly Suspect. I really love their song, Bath Salts.

Enjoy Lydia below. I love the water and really feel like I may have been a mermaid in an alternate universe, but this video had me squirming I was so worried about her escaping…

    I am going to my sisters house to eat. This will be our first Thanksgiving without my brother Jim and our mother who we lost this year. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Heading to my sister-in-laws’ house for dinner. My nephew and his wife will be there. Haven’t seen them since last Christmas.

    Going to my Sister’s home tomorrow for Thanksgiving. After eating and taking a nap we will go to a movie. No shopping for me until Friday, if then!

    For Christmas, it’s just myself, hubby and Mom. We will cook a nice meal. Then we will take my Mom to my Sister’s house and Arthur and I will go to a movie. We have been doing this every Christmas day since we met on Christmas Eve, 1989!

    No Thanksgiving here, but I’m packing up some things for when the painter comes in.

    I’m too hot to think right now.
