Saturday we had our family dinner at our daughters,
it was good to see all the G Kids together.
They are growing up way to fast.
Unfortunately there were College football games
and so the guys all sat staring at the boob tube.
I think TV has destroyed the Holidays
Seems we have to work our schedules around which games are on.
I think back to past Thanksgivings with my family either at my Aunt Lo's or Aunt Stell's
Before TV, when we had to actually talk to each other.
My mom had 4 sisters and a brother that made it to adult age.
It was a blast watching them get together and fix a meal.
Remember this was pre-microwave days, everything was made by scratch even Aunt Stell's Pumpkin Pies.
At my Dads sister, Aunt Lo's, she actually dressed the Turkey,
it was home grown not out of a supermarket.
At her house we had homemade ice Cream,
my Grama Em's Pecan Pies and Plum Pudding.
At both houses we played games.
Today many of us are still close, not just cousins, but friends.
I worry that won't happen with many of My G kids.
I hope I'm wrong but,
it is kind of hard to get to know each other when they sit staring at the TV,
and kind of hard to get any games started when they are out the door as soon as they eat.
On Sunday I called my Aunt Lo, she is in a nursing home, 96 years old but her mind is sharp as tack.
We talked about those old days, how much fun they were and how much we missed them.
This generation of TV and video games, doesn't know what they are missing.
