Two out of three ain’t bad

We had a lovely Thanksgiving and two of the boys made it here to celebrate. Alas, picture taking hasn’t figured in the festivities, but we have been busy.

DSC00848 (2)The boys made an apple pie for Thanksgiving and put up the Christmas lights yesterday. Today we are going to buy the tree, make cookies, green the church, and take boy #1 to the airport in Syracuse. And tonight we will be sure to toast our dear cousin/nephew Wheeler as he celebrates another birthday.

Thought for the day: although it seems sometimes as if the world is going to hell in a handcart (as they say), history reminds us that it has always been thus. Here’s a wonderful scene from Dragnet (1967-70) that demonstrates powerfully how nothing ever changes (except the quality of TV scripts). “The story you are about to see is true.” Watch it all!

They don’t make ’em like that anymore, do they?

Enjoy your weekend!
