Thanksgiving at the Trolls

This is making me nostalgic.  I remember many formal Thanksgiving settings and all sorts of people coming.  One Thanksgiving was spent at the home of the woman I was dating.  I made a fool of myself saying how much I enjoyed Japanese culture.  Then I found out her uncle was on the Bataan Death March in World War II.  Not the right person to be mentioning positive things about Japan to.

Mom always cooked a lot of great stuff.  There were friends and family.  There were my Dad’s overseas colleagues.  It was always interesting to see them learning about this great American tradition.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.

    It’s easy to say things innocently we do not realize will touch a nerve. However, we as “human” should understand when it happens accidentally. I hope it did not spoil the relationship. Thank you for sharing your memories.
