Thanksgiving Dinner At The Gordon's
Nov 22 - Yes, well, that picture pretty much sums it up.

Another year, another Thanksgiving. American Thanksgiving, that is. Canadians were done with Thanksgiving over a month ago. But, what the hey. When in Rome, right? Figuratively speaking of course.

Our adoptive parents this year were Gary and Sydell Gordon, parents of the notorious Bruce Gordon, who seems to have appeared on our site more than even us. Gary and Sydell are two of the nicest folks we've met on this trip (and we'll bet you dollars to donuts that they're way cooler than Harrison Ford's parents).

Thanksgiving is a great holiday. One of the best, we think. First of all, it's about eating, which is almost as cool as basing a holiday around sex. Second, it's about family. Or, if you're like us, someone else's family. Lastly, it's about eating. That's worth mentioning twice.

Evening entertainment: A game of Three Cup Monte with a two year old.
The only thing missing was the moose meat.

I don't really get that. Aimee told me to write that. I never had moose meat at my Thanksgiving. That was Aimee's messed up family. I think she was made to eat moose meat at every opportunity.

Actually, had it been a Canadian Thanksgiving, we all would have been out at Jan Starr's, playing golf on the ice of Lake Superior, eating Liz's salad and Jan's turkey and my mom's spice cake with butterscotch fudgy icing. MMmmm! Then we'd have some sort of crazy game planned, usually involving hundreds of miles of string, firecrackers, balloons, markers, stickers, candles, and lots and lots of booze. Sigh.

Anyway, what can we say about our time at the Gordon's? Everyone was in a talkative mood. We let Zack have the camera for a while, which is how we were able to get photos of everyone with real smiles. We taught Emie the value of money by teaching her how to play the Shell Game. We learned that Arnold got into a fist fight with a guy whose dog peed on his lawn. The conversation went from digital cameras to E-bay to collectibles to George Carlin. Nobody got into a fight. Nobody was ostracized from the house. Emie went into one screaming fit (she's two) when Zack locked her in the bathroom, but that's about it. All in all, I'd say it was a pretty easy going Thanksgiving.

But that's not to say it wasn't spontaneous... Look at Kevin's face!

Kevin, I was just talking to your mother yesterday. I happened to be at my Mom's when she called. I was telling her that as I looked at the pictures of you shaving off your beard, when I got to the last picture, my first thought was... "That's my uncle Frank!". She got a laugh out of that and admitted that she voted for that one more times then she was allowed.
