Well, all things considered, Thanksgiving was a big hit at Casa de Bastard. The roll call was: my mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law & sister-in-law and their son TJ, my daughter Carol and her husband Matt, my daughter Sara D. and her fiance John, and Miss Allyssa.
The Blonde worked her ass off all day long getting shit ready. I cleaned the back patio with some assistance from The Blonde. I figured the smokers in the family would appreciate having a nice clean place to pollute their lungs. 😀
Of course the Cowboy’s game was on. Holy shit! Is that Tony Romo the real deal, or what?!? My daughter Sara is a huge football fan. NOT!!! But this year she didn’t bust my balls too much about it. Her future husband is a Texan too, so I think she has made her peace with having to learn how to live with football in her life.
Dinner went off without a hitch. The turkey and ham both were great. She may be an occasional pain in the ass, but The Blonde is a damned good cook. We had deviled eggs, celery with squirty cheese in it, stuffing, gravy, mashed taters, and chex mix for snacks. If anyone didn’t get their fill in this house it was their own damned fault.
After the meal we sat down and played some Yahtzee. I’ll be damned if it didn’t look like everyone had a good time. AHHHHH!!! I love it, a holiday with no drama! I’ve never had any holiday drama’s since I have been hooked up with The Blonde, but it was a required part of the holidays when I was growing up. It was what it was.
All that being said, I hope everyone had a good one too. Next stop: Christmas. Oh fuck, please shoot me. If it weren’t for the little kids in the fam, I’d just as soon skip it. Anyways, happy holidays folks.
