Humor, Thanksgiving, & Adaptation

I have been “bad” in not posting a blog entry since before Thanksgiving. For over a year I have posted almost daily. Life’s journeys and living have gotten in my way. Communications with friends and family have taken preference recently. New learning has also taken its toll.

First topic tonight is humor. I have posted an unusual Thanksgiving Turkey. I hope you get a chuckle out of it. Life is nothing without humor. I have spent over a year posting only funnies and inspirational messages on Facebook. I think I have learned how to post in that time and will be now be posting to this website for all to enjoy. Most of my postings on my personal page and blog have been original, but I hope here to combine the two.

Thanksgiving is past, and most are on to the December holidays. It was a tough time for hubby and me. In mid November we went to NYC to see a wonderful show, Ripcord. I’ve posted the “program front page” and the tickets. If you look closely, you will see that we got an absolute bargain on the tickets for front row seats to a great show. We have seen many performances at The Manhattan Theatre Club over the years. We hope to continue to see more in the future. This was a “preview week” and well worth it.

For many years we have travelled to the Dominican Republic for Thanksgiving. We have stayed at several places, but mainly at Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana. This year our family wanted us to be with them and not travel. It saddened us, in a way, because we have made friends and faux family when we have been there. On the other hand, November turned into a month of many interactions with blood family who had moved away from where we lived and we were glad to be with them. It was an adaptation for us from many years of happiness and a return to former years of happiness.

Then Thanksgiving came. Bad news all around. On our trip to NYC to see Ripcord and have a great time at the Carnegie Club and Russian Vodka Room, we both got sick. As careful as we are in travelling anywhere, the large mass of people on the trains, in Penn Station, NY, and throughout the city, “got us”. It is always a danger in travel or in local publicly congested areas. I got a chest congestion and cough that did not quit until yesterday. Hubby was also not feeling well.

As a result, we decided not to infect our family and stayed at home for Turkey day. They were disappointed, but grateful. We could not continue our quarantine, however, because the day after Thanksgiving we had to go to a family funeral. Life takes strange curves. If we had been away, as usual we would have missed giving our support to our loved ones.

We did have a different Thanksgiving by ourselves this year with Brugal Cider, Prime Rib, mashed yams, and asparagus….not that we really felt like eating. I have to admit, it was delicious. Then, a couple of days ago, we had a more traditional Turkey Dinner when we were feeling a bit better.

Humor, thanks, and adaptation are definitely the secrets to happiness.
