No Vacancy © Joel ThomasonAnother great Thanksgiving is complete (though our family's celebration will continue through the weekend). We have grown considerably over the years. This year 34 people squeezed around 3 large tables to eat 2 turkeys (or was it 3?), 15 pounds of potatoes, and a cornucopia of other traditional favorites. As I write this, I am in the basement making myself comfortable on an air mattress while most of those 34 family members snuggle into various nooks and crannies around the house. There is literally no vacancy, hence the blog title and the excuse to post another photograph from my trip to the prairie.
