Thanksgiving part one
Robert didn’t think his schedule would allow for coming home to Alexandria for Thanksgiving.
But his schedule changed and Sarah was able to find him flights and so we had a perfect reason for the first fire of the season.
A nice warm game of Catan — when Robert smoked us in surprisingly short order.
It was fun, but too short a game (from my point of view) — I could have gotten longest road back if he didn’t swoop in an win so fast.
And, following the tradition of recent years, David Z. arranged for hockey tickets. The seats were great and the game excellent: we didn’t think the Caps had a chance.
A game tying score in the last two minutes sent it into overtime.
And a game winning score with 3 seconds left in overtime was an astounding conclusion!

Cool water and the leaves are just past peak.
It was a clear day even if a little cool.
But the river remains low.
That blue sky is not helping our drought. But it is nicer to be out in than the drizzle we had Friday.
It was fun to see some blue skies peak through as we watched the UW Huskies football game (which also had some drizzle and a lot of wind) in the afternoon. While the Huskies won, I think the fans and players may have preferred our weather to theirs.
We’ll miss Robert for Thanksgiving but are looking forward to having him back on our side of the country for Christmas!
