Wine at Thanksgiving.

This week, I’m staying in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, Alabama area with Jenny’s family.

As an author, I try to contribute to the family communication by saying things at the dinner table like, “Let’s all talk about Obamacare.”

But most of the time, I’m not the one who starts funny family conversations.

Yesterday, at 9AM, Jenny’s uncle said, “Does anyone want any wine?”

I said, “It’s 9AM. That feels pretty early for wine.”

He immediately replied, “We could call it communion.”

This is family.

This is Thanksgiving.

I hope you enjoy both.

What’s something funny that happened in your family during one of your Thanksgivings?

    For one of our first dinners when my wife and I were newlyweds, she made mashed potatoes. She used and electric mixer in the saucepan… the saucepan with the black teflon coating. We all ate mashed potatoes with little black flecks in them. They slid right down!

    We were talking about Black Friday and I said I wasn’t going to have any part of it. My 8 year old daughter got angry and told me I was the meanest person ever. When I asked her why, she told us Black Friday was when we give presents to black people and they aren’t any different from us and should get presents too. I love that kid.

    When I was a kid, my parents and I would always drive up to New Hampshire to visit my aunt. She is a dog sled racer. She has at least 20 dogs. No more explanation is needed.

    I had 2 relatives (my husband’s side) bring 2 dogs to our Thanksgiving dinner. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like dogs and I have a very big one. But we already had 24 people and they didn’t ask! Yes, if they would of asked then I would of said a mumbling “yes” but they didn’t! And then one had to wear a diaper around the house which kind of grossed people out and the other one, a very big puppy, jumped on my furniture and ate with us at the dining table! I’m totally serious! I have a picture to prove it : )
