Cookie directing Thanksgiving buffet traffic.  A big
 thank you to our local family who pot-lucked dinner,
 including Vicki’s great broccoli salad.  
We brought our appetites.
Did you know that pretty close to 100% of the 40 million
 turkeys that Americans eat each year are artificially
 inseminated?  The broad breasted turkey is bred to have
 very large breasts, which physically get in the way
 when the male and female try to, uh, “create offspring”.
Amy and Rosemary bluffing their way through some
impossible words.  Rosemary won the match by
guessing the exact definition of “plumarole”, 
which turns out to be a small feather.
Mr. Rogers proudly posing in his neighborhood collection
of outboard motors.  And yes, he has a subscription
to “Antique Outboard Motor” magazine.

Woke up to 20 degrees, 20 mph wind and snow.
Brrrrrr!  We’re not used to this!

We rented a Walleyball court at the YMCA for
a couple of hours.  It’s a crazy game of volleyball,
where the walls represent the court lines and it’s
legal to do stuff like serve it into the wall, or bounce

it into your opponent’s head.  No major injuries. 

We’d better check his sleeves for extra cards.
Mike learning Euchre from Dennis and Tori. “Hey,
wait a minute!  You never told me THAT rule!”  
Midwest cousins catching (and cracking) up.
Tori was on kid patrol, here with
Katie – the kids spent hours
 climbing up and down the stairs.

The early stages of Round Robin ping pong, where
 everyone has a paddle and you take turns returning
 a serve from the other side while you revolve in
 a circle.  If you miss 3 times, you’re out.  
Late stage Round Robin is where the speed picks up.
This game was down to only Dennis, Tim and Nick.
 Dennis won – must have been the moonshine!
