Holidays bring out the best and the worst in us. Whether you’re looking forward to the next gathering or dreading it, we’ve all experienced both kinds. Throw aside expectations and see what happens. I’m looking forward to spending quality time and enjoying some delicious meals. While I bake rolls and mash taters, I might just squeeze in some scenes from the best Thanksgiving movie ever, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Or, listen to some Adele because she provides the perfect soundtrack to digest a big meal or celebrate a big event. After the parade is over and the dishes are cleared, shopping ceases and Monday nears, there’s one more thing I know will pop-up this holiday weekend. The uber-comfort binge of the Netflix relaunch of Gilmore Girls. Start brewing the coffee.
Thanks for reading Adventures in Low Vision. Wishing you a meaningful Thanksgiving day for those of you who celebrate it. What makes the holiday special for you? What food makes the meal? Have you ever traveled alongside someone like Del Griffith? Tell me about it.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We’re looking forward to a very quiet meal and no discussion of politics. I’m not a big eater I just enjoy the company but I do love a good sweet potato pie.
Sweet potato pie, yum!
We’re going to my mother-in-law’s for Thanksgiving and she just sent out the menu…I got really excited that she was making broccoli casserole again this year. It smells so bad reheated, my husband all but bans me from bringing leftovers home, but I love it!
He will eventually go nose blind to the smell! Happy Thanksgiving.
Those rolls look good! As you know, as Europeans we don’t usually celebrate Thanksgivibg but we are lucky enough to have an American in the family so we shall be travelling, by train and automobile (no planes involved) from several directions to eastern England especially for her amazing pumpkin pie. Susan, I have to thank you for mentioning The Gilmore Girls in a previous blog. I am now addicted and have bought the first series on DVD for my granddaughter. You may have started a trend!
I hope you had a good time and enjoyed a generous slice of that pumpkin pie. And I’m pleased you are part of the Gilmore Girls fandom. After you take in Seasons 1-6, Skip Season 7 and go right to Netflix.
