Grandpa Ben and Jack joined me in the living room while finishing touches were put on our Thanksgiving Dinner this noon. We had rain during the night and then about 11:00am we had freezing rain. The streets and sidewalks here in Seward couldn’t have been slicker when we picked up the Home Delivered Meals. Our last “customer” told of her son having come out from Lincoln to take her along for dinner at his home. They had only driven a few blocks when she asked that he take her back home because of the icy roads. He asked what she would do for dinner and she said she told him that, “The Kiwanis people would be bringing her dinner”. It made our efforts all worthwhile to know we were so trusted.
We had an excellent Thanksgiving Dinner with Julie, John, Sadie, Jack, Carolyn, Ben, Elaine and I. It was a cooperative effort with Ben having fixed the Turkey and his homemade Kraut, Carolyn the “pink stuff” along with other things, Elaine made Pumpkin pie and Gravy. We also had Acorn Squash, Mashed Potatoes, Carolyn’s pop corn Cornbread, Dressing, Chocolate Pecan Pie, etc. Both Sadie and Jack are good eaters. Julie and John are good hosts. We went home when “nap time” approached and by then the walks and streets were not quite as slick as earlier. This is the way our area looked at 4:00pm.
