Happy Thanksgiving

This year, we’re doing Thanksgiving with my family on Sunday because my sister, the nurse, had to work tonight.  I refuse to do Thanksgiving without her because for 30 years we’ve had every Thanksgiving together.  Instead, we are making a traditional Slovak dinner of roasted duck, red cabbage and dumplings.  I used to be such […]
