Best laid plans… I was going to get up early this morning, and figure out a lighthearted blog topic that I could knock out quickly. Then I slept in and started watching the Macy’s parade…thereby getting sucked in to all the rituals of the holiday.
I was rescued a little bit by this piece from a friend I used to hang out with occasionally in Boulder, CO. Enjoy A Thanksgiving Ritual for 60s-Style Activists by Ira Chernus.
In case you don’t know what Ira’s talking about, enjoy Alice’s Restaurant first:
Hope that you all had a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn’t be beat. I sure did! Thanks Bev, Jeanette, Karen, Ruth and the rest of the crew that assembled the feast.
