Ana, it will be different but that was the best time for us to see the new g'son plus first g'daughter's birthday is that weekend. Eldest son will stay here and watch most of the dogs, so that is good, but will be alone on Thanksgiving which is sooooooooo guilt inducing.
Daughter is trying to come to VA to redevous with us but that will be played by ear I think. I'm doubting she will make it. Not sure she has a car big enough for her 2 big dogs plus one little dog plus 6'4 SO and for sure son's house has no room and I know she can't afford a hotel much less find one that will take a Great Dane and a Newfie.
But on the bright side, my back will appreciate the no cooking, or not much cooking anyway. We will go up on Wed (12 hours if traffic is ok and the roads good), stay Thurs and Friday and come home Saturday so Soot can rest to go to work on Monday.
Is your net behaving now?
Midgy, no more crazy landlady is a big plus! When is M day?
Nan, custard pie...sounds good. I don't think I've ever had it.
Soot and I are off to bed. Sleep well all and sweet dreams.
