Long Ago And Not Very Far Away

Long ago Toby got me to go to a Thanksgiving Buffet at a fancy hotel. I expected it to be a dreary meal, but I ended up having a great time. After trying different places, Toby and I decided that the Omni Hotel downtown had the best food for the money. The first year we went there they had a band. G was about two. At one point he toddled over to the drummer and the drummer let him hold his brushes. G started drumming with them and the drummer put him up on the drum stool. G kept banging away and after a bit, the band started playing a song. G kept good time and played through the whole song. When it was over, everyone in the room clapped. The drummer let G keep the brushes. I'm pretty sure he still has them.

We are going to the Omni today. I will think of Toby and the drummer while G and I chow down on fancy food and delicious desserts.

Today I am thankful for friends, family, cats and washing machines.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Here's G at the Omni with the drummer way back when:
