and... Thanksgiving is right out.

We had a small scale early Thanksgiving planned for this weekend.  We should have done it a couple weeks ago. We can't justify it. Damnit.

Re: and... Thanksgiving is right out.

well...... maybe consider "saving the thought" and plan to do a small "thankful we made it through" celebration alarmingly similar to a traditional November txg once it is safe to do so?  Something to look forward to because the people and the food etc are already planned?

That's a really good idea.

Re: and... Thanksgiving is right out.

I saw last night that El Paso has "negative 12" beds on their dashboard. Ideally (given the circumstances) this means 12 people laid up in hallways at the hospital, at least getting oxygen. More likely, it means people at home on a waiting list, just hoping someone else in a bed dies before they do.

Don't break a bone or get sick with anything else in the next 3 months, y'all.

Things are really bad in El Paso, making the news even this far away.

Going to the hospital was something I avoided to my own detriment even before this crisis.  Still don't want to go, and now they don't want me there either.

Re: and... Thanksgiving is right out.

Compared to the crisis in front of this country a missed Thanksgiving is small potatoes. Spare a thought for healthcare workers this winter.

Did I miss something? You injured yourself?

Re: and... Thanksgiving is right out.

here's what's gonna happen in my house...

we'll have guests, mebbe as many as 20 or 30, over the course of the whole day

many of us, most of us, won't mask up

there will be many handshakes and hugs

we'll sit together, side by side, shoulder to shoulder

there will be laughing and loud conversation

anyone -- family or friends -- feelin' apprehensive about it, is free to leave, or -- better yet -- not come over to begin with

Re: and... Thanksgiving is right out.

Good plan for down-sizing next years festivities, cost effective in the long run.
