Oh dear, driving all the way? 9 hours, that is a long trip. But at least you will avoid the airport traffic. And I hear this year, lots of people are traveling by car instead of planes in order to avoid the H1N1.
I just came back from picking up the last of my TG groceries (including flowers). Tomorrow I will do my baking and cooking, so I can enjoy TG with my family. Will put on a lamb/lentil stew in my crock pot for all of us to eat, when they get here - whatever time that will be. They are all supposed to arrive around 8, but I am sure there will be delays. Fortunately, we live nly 20 minutes from Logan.
Have a safe trip to Altoona and have a blessed TG with your family. Talk to you when you get back. - Pingo

[QUOTE]Yes, I really did it! I remember doing it, and, of course, getting a lot of nearly constant help. But, I really did do almost every stitch myself. I was a perfectionist even then. I was always ticked about the tongue not curling in a natural fashion. Really, I'm ill. Oh, to heat up the potatoes, put them in the serving dish (if it's safe, of course!) and just microwave at 3 minute intervals on high stirring and testing each time. I say use the serving dish so they stay hotter longer, but, of course, you can heat them up in anything. We are driving on Thanksgiving Day all the way to Altoona, 9 hours away, so unfortunately we cannot meet at Logan. TGD is the busiest travel day of the year? I thought it would be the Sunday after when everyone has to get back for work on Monday. So many people take that week off and travel earlier than TG, I thought. Oh, no......let's hope our 9 hour drive isn't 11. The neighbors will be here, including the dad, tomorrow to go over the explicit instructions and expectations regarding Gracie. This will help me, I think. Blessings to you and yours, too, dear friend, et al. ~kar
