    First Thanksgiving in a new home in a new town, where the only people we know are colleagues. Baby MMQB made the 10-hour drive from college to check out the new digs, so we weren't alone. A retired couple that works part-time for me invited us over, and their young grandchildren were crawling all over us within a half hour. It was nice to feel like family.

    Had a blended Thanksgiving with my mom and the ladyfriend’s mom and bro, and it went surprisingly well (as in, no one killed each other).

    Had my parents, and an elderly neighbor who doesn’t have anyone other than a daughter who lives in a distant state, over. We shared some laughs.

    We had 25 people at our normal Thanksgiving family feast in a decidedly Red house. Fortunately, nobody brought up politics all day, thankfully for our Blue faction of the family.

    Had Thanksgiving lunch at my sis in laws house with my wife, son, sis in law, fiance, her 3 kids, mother and father in law.
    Then had Thanksgiving dinner at my Grandmothers house with my 85 year old Grandmother, my parents, sis and her two daughters, 2 aunts and uncles, and a couple of cousins.
    There came a point last evening that I wasn't even hungry, yet I just kept shoveling the food down my gullet.

    The security job was easy but boring. In that position, I'm supposed to check out cars as they leave to go to different places, but with no drivers working, no cars left. There was a tow truck that dropped one off and another guy who was working left to go to lunch, but that was it.

    I hit IHOP on the way home.

    My brother's father-in-law passed on Wednesday. I usually go to his place on Thanksgiving after my game, but I didn't know what his plans were. That's why I decided to work when I was asked.

    My high school reunion is tonight. I'm giving it a miss. A good number of them are Trumpers and I'm just not in the mood.

    I'll find something else to do that I'll enjoy.

    Nah. The grease/butter quotient in the stuffing and gravy-ladled potatoes should keep the product moving smoothly.

    That's why you wear your Thanksgiving pants with the loose waistband. It's politer than unbuttoning your pants.

    Tell me about it. The need struck with the ferocity of Wal-Mart Black Friday shoppers trying to breakdown the doors at about 8pm. Quickly said goodnight to my family and hauled the 20 minutes to the homebowl.
