Happy Thanksgiving to All

The peculiar custom of the Gruntleds is to have the Thanksgiving meal a day early. Last night we were short the eldest Junior Gruntled, who was picked up from college by Grandma. We were up two students, though, who added to the cheer.

Today we sit by the fire and read. And eat leftovers.

We are flying the Kentucky flag today, which has the wonderful state motto, "United We Stand, Divided We Fall." May you all stand – and sit, and lounge about, and perhaps go play in the brisk air – together this day.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Gruntleds from the QGraces.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Here's to reading for pleasure, watching lots of great Christmas movies, and attempting to convince your boyfriend's very traditional family that you can offer a modicum of domesticity to go along with your "intellectual compatibility." The great holiday divide of football in the living room and cooking in the kitchen is difficult to negotiate...even for the honors grad. C'est la vie.

Perhaps the "smart men marry smart women" post would be apt for boyfriend and family.
