Thanksgiving holiday was a long break for many of us here in the greater Providence area. Since there were predictions of nasty weather heading our way on Wednesday Johnson & Wales remained closed that day. And, since we didn't return to work until the following Monday quite a few of us had nice, long time away from computer screens.
For me, though, I spent the next 48 hours swinging back and forth between Valium and Vicodin as my body had developed an acute fondness for a raging back and neck pain that seemed orchestrated by some divine creature with an axe to grind.
Anyway, I felt well enough Thanksgiving day to join Susie for a drive to Douglas, MA, to join Frank, Cathy and Mieke at Dick and Dorothy's house for Turkey dinner -- I even managed to produce my end of the meal, a potato galette.
A good time was had by all - it was especially nice to see Cathy back in fine form -- and Mieke was her usual charming self. Frank spent much of the time just smiling at his two girls.
