I have news of the loved ones who will not be at our table this noon: I spoke with ashacat this morning -- All is well. News here.
The baked corn is baking. Hopefully I will render up this family Thanksgiving staple in proper form!
Alas, I think, the weather will put the kibosh on our traditional after dinner walk. But, I am bringing my hiking boots along just in case there's a break in the rain.
