I had a wonderful time with my family at home for Thanksgiving. They have all gone, the house is empty, the temporary beds have been deflated, the laundry is done, the leftovers have been taken care of. We are left with memories of another Thanksgiving come and gone. This will be the Thanksgiving we remember Sandra trying to make gravy with powdered sugar. OOPS.
We always play games after dinner , Monopoly was this years choice. Before the game was laid out , jokingly I said, I suppose "now a days" they play with credit.
Sure enough, everyone gets a different color credit card to use for purchasing property and paying rent. Jessica was the banker with the eltronic device that keeps track of everyones credit and debits. Boardwalk is gone, then names on the properties have all been changed, the rent now is 500 K , instead of $50.00 the utilities have been chaged to cell phone and cabel co. the railroads have been replaced with airports. Luckily Grandma didn't land on any property worth having and I was able to get out of the game early.
