Come Together

“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.”  Alphonse Karr

Come Together

If the immigrant pilgrims and the native Indians could sit down and break bread in a non-confrontational setting, hopefully Americans from sea to shining sea can do the same this holiday season. Chances are there may be someone at the Thanksgiving table who did not vote the way you did (those_____you fill in the blank.)

But of course, since we all believe in a democracy where everyone has a right to their opinions, and we really want to understand the other perspective, we will have a calm, intelligent discussion of our differing points of views…

Okay, so since that’s not happening, here’s our advice for handling the Thanksgiving dinner this year. It was so much easier when we just had crazy Uncle Harry to worry about.

If you voted for Hillary :   
• Do not wear a pants suit
• Do not play the music from Hamilton.
• Do not ask your host where their “safe space” is.
• Do not bring your birth certificate.
Do start drinking early.
If you voted for Trump:
• Do not send the millennials to the safe space in the shed.
• Do not play the music from Oklahoma, and turn up the volume on “Oh What a Beautiful Morning”.
• Do not ask how the move to Canada is going.
• Do not bring out the coal stove.
Do start drinking early.

Take a deep breath, ban all discussions of politics, and count your blessings which hopefully include your sense of humor. Oh, and did we say start drinking early?

On a serious note, we wish all of you wonderful tomatoes of every persuasion, a Happy Thanksgiving in the warmth of dear friends and family. We are very thankful for each and every one of you.
