The "powers that be" in Minnesota have strongly suggested that Thanksgiving family gatherings be kept to a minimum. A right-leaning friend of mine sent a picture of police using a battering ram to knock open a door, with the caption "Don't tell Gov. Walz we bought a 20-pound turkey." :lol:

Ours has changed too. Usually get together with Stony Jim's son and daughter-in-law, not this year.

I'll miss seeing them.

Take care. :D

Minnesota update: The governor a few days ago decreed that all social gatherings (however that is defined) are banned until mid-December, including in-home events that involve anyone but members of the immediate household. I guess that means my kids and grandkids can't stop by to see me. So I'm stuck with my wife and one indoor cat. I'm not clear, under the new rules, whether my outdoors cats can be invited in for a quick look around the porch.

I've never been a big social-gathering kind of guy, even as a child, so I will get by. But, gosh, some of these unilateral decrees in the name of fending off COVID are beginning to feel pretty stern. :o

(FWIW, other than the necessary grocery and cat-food runs my wife and I haven't gone anywhere for months. My cats seem to be following a similar pattern.)

We have never had huge gatherings at Thanksgiving here anyway, so we will do pretty much the same as we always have. Just the two of us, plus 2 kids and the youngest daughters friend. We have been in contact all through this, so it is not really any bigger gathering than it was for any other holidays this year.

Our worthless Governor and his ugly girlfriend, the Secretary of Health, are telling everybody that we may not have large gatherings, but they have not expressed disapproval for large funerals of people they consider important, or large gatherings of rioters.

Therefore, we will be having a memorial service for a particularly memorable turkey that passed away recently, followed by riots protesting the fact that there will only be one pumpkin pie available to eat.

I expect there to be looting of the turkey and filling leftovers to send some home with the kids, and if somebody loots my piece of pumpkin pie, there may be threats of violence.
