Addendum to Thanksgiving 2008: Volume 4

I almost forgot to blog about this, and when all is said and done, Vicki might wish I had. But some things cannot go undocumented.

Friday night, after making sure that our party was well underway, Vicki and Bill got ready to go watch the El Dorado Wildcats play football, at night, in the freezing cold, in the rain. True, it was a big game, like the state semi-final something-or-another, not that it mattered anyway because these people are not what you'd call "fair weather fans". And since they are not fair weather fans, they own very specialized outerwear designed for just such occasions.

I'm not going to name names, but a certain future son-in-law of theirs might have suggested that Vicki looked like a baked potato in her rain gear. But that baked potato was warm and toasty and stayed dry during the game, so I suppose that she had the last laugh after all.
