She gets her turkey stuffed every Thanksgiving.  And plenty of whipped cream for her pie.

Vanilla porn at that.  Didn't even talk about the cranberry sauce or green bean casserole.

I've enjoyed reading this story for years now.
Seven of them I guess.

My dad died in April of 2020 (not covid).   Mom decided to stay in the house and the land they had shared for over 50 years.   One day, as my then 81 y/o mother was out slowly stacking wood, a stranger stopped by and offered to help her.   He was about 53 or so then.   He and my mom started a friendship.  He comes by often, even took her on a quad ride down the rutted dirt road that separates her property and last month invited her to go to Chinese in town.  She went.

She was kind of confused, because of their age difference (not sexual in any way from either), but I told her that that shouldn't matter.  My mom isn't like a lot of the locals.  She has traveled a lot and isn't a mindless Jesus-lovin' whatever.  They talk a lot (he wants to see the Redwoods so I sent him a beautiful book) and play Scrabble. It also turns out that I went to school with his cousin as a kid.  Their family is thick on the ground there.   The "young"  man is kind of at sea because he is separated from his wife.  He owns his own place down the road.

Where was I?  Oh yeah, friendship at any age is special.  I really like the Thanksgiving friends.

Such a great story in a tire fire of a world. Cheers to both of them.

This story fills me with so much happiness every year, and it is part of my Thanksgiving tradition, which is to check that they are again having dinner together, listening to Alice's Restaurant, and watching Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Always a great story. So nice of these people to invite him.

And thank goodness law enforcement didn't shoot this young man 50 times as he approached their house, thinking he was 'Antifa' or trying to 'commit a crime'.

I'd be more interested in their time travel escapades, but this is still pretty heartwarming.

This is a nice read. Hope for humanity and all that. I wish you and your mum (and her friend) a very nice Thanksgiving.
