I made the front page of the Emerald Empire Living Section of the Sunday Paper when I was 6 years old!  I’ve done my best to stay out of the paper ever since.

Everybody is keeping an eye on Bob while he carves the turkey!  I’m pretty sure this is 1977, and we are all in Springfield.

Thanksgiving at Bob and Carolyn’s always included lots of games.  I recall the one above involving cutting off the top of the bag another inch after each round, making you lean farther over.  Mom seems to have the hang of it, even wearing heels!  That Kienow’s bag would be worth something on Antiques Road Show now, if Carolyn hadn’t made us cut it.

Grandma is playing charades, not reenacting some Swedish folk dance.

img489Dad is also playing charades, but he could be channeling a charismatic preacher!

img497Everyone seems fascinated by Mark’s new watch,  Dad and Reba especially!  Thelma maybe less so, but not by much.
