I hope you all had a wonderful, refreshing Thanksgiving Day yesterday with your family and friends!  I spent the afternoon doing something totally different – attending the play, WHITE CHRISTMAS, with Mom, Aunt Mary, & Uncle Walt at Drury Lane Theater in Oak Brook.  Then we went back to Aunt Mary’s house for Thanksgiving dinner…and the road I usually take home from her house was closed due to FLOODING!  Sheesh…in November!  Weird weather we’re having.  I have been away from Geneva for so long that I couldn’t remember how to get back home from her place without using that road!  A 15 minute drive took 45 minutes; sigh.  I drive OH SO WELL!!
