    Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday up until this year. The family get together used to be so large we had to hire a hall to get us all together.
    We purchased what we didn’t grow from other farms, and I do not believe there was anything on the table which was purchased or grown beyond ten miles of where we sat down. That’s because most of the family LIVED within ten miles of where we were.
    Back when I was young, there was no excuse for not attending this family get together as all the stores were closed, and it was hard to find even an open gas station.
    Today Thanksgiving is just another shopping day before xmas. (My least favorite holiday.) The big stores are all open, Many people must work, and the family is scattered from hell to breakfast. If I were celebrating the holiday this year, I could get all my available family members together in a phone booth.
