It is sad to be away from home on the first day of a new mystery. I have plenty of handwork to keep me busy though. Yesterday was full of turkey and ham. Because my mother-in-law was not feeling well, I was put "in charge" of Thanksgiving dinner. I delegated to Kurt to run his mother's kitchen, but still ended up doing most of the cooking. Kurt's brother's wife, Barbara, wasn't able to make it, leaving most of the men hanging out watching sports.
