Thanks for your nice reply, UA.
It was your note about Happy Thanksgiving that jogged my memory to look for that story.
It was the elderly person waiting for his relatives to visit on a special day, and they never showed, a story I had heard before, but now it was occurring in my life, as I kept looking at the clock wondering when they were going to arrive.
Then I went to the web and saw your note about Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and it jogs me to look for that story. But I didn't know the name of it. I just used some words that were familiar to me, and I couldn't find it at first.
Then I looked some more and there it was.
Oh, how did Thanksgiving turn out? I was still on the computer waiting for my son, his wife and two children to arrive, and I hear some people jumping on the trampoline, thinking that my son's kids.
I look out back, and it was the next door neighbor and her child jumping on the trampoline. I thought, if my son drives up in a little bit, it's going to look like the city park.
They drive up and I look out back, and now there is the neighbor, her child, and the mother's sister's child jumping. Then, my son drives up and my two grandsons, ages 5 and 7, are there and they're all 4 jumping.
A few minutes later, the adults are in the kitchen. I am standing 2 feel from the next door neighbor woman, the mother of one of the children, who attacked in some vicious way, that I mentioned was so dire I couldn't tell you about it.
And there she was, standing right next to me. If that's what it takes to get all of the kids jumping on the trampoline, it'll have to be OK.
So, as the senior citizen living alone, I get not one plate of food, I get 3. Whew! I just finished the 2nd one last night for supper, and now I need to send him and his wife a thank you e-mail, but I couldn't send it before I actually ate the food.
So, Thanksgiving went pretty good. Thanks for asking. How was yours?
