My brother called me about an hour ago, asking in a casual fashion what we were doing for Thanksgiving.
"Staying home, cooking and eating," I told him, happily. "You're invited."
"Good," he replied, "because I didn't want to invite myself."
Turns out he will be in town until early Friday morning.
I never, ever know where he will turn up next.
And that's ok.
That he has a place to land here with us is one more thing for which to be thankful.
And I am.
Go listen to some good music: "Symphony #9: From the New World. IV. Allegro Con Fuoco" from the album Dvorak: Symphony #9: "From the New World" by Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
