Thanksgiving was much better than I had feared it would be. My mother is still back in the St. Clair Field nursing home for rehabilitation after a fall from her wheelchair she suffered at the end of October. My brother and sister-in-law, David Rihn and Valerie Bailey-Rihn, made arrangements to rent a conference room at the home for the noon meal, and catered in the full Thanksgiving dinner. The bright spot was that Mama has improved quite a lot since I saw her Nov. 8th, which was heartening. The dinner wasn't bad, and all the local relatives showed up. My dad seemed to be feeling fairly well, also, so a nice time was actually had.
