In Virginia for Thanksgiving

Beech leaves in Powhatan, Virginia

Dr Janie and I are in Virginia with daughter Sarah and family, and we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving at husband Jame’s parents’ house in the woods in Powhatan (where Sarah and James have—at last!—almost finished their new house). So we’ll just have a program of HAH Generic Hours this Saturday, from 9 to 11 AM, just two hours in what seem these “latter days.” Not sure about December 4th; depends on when we get back.

We drove down in The Green Expy, our 2013 Ford Expedition, across the Tappan Zee, staying overnight in an Holiday Inn in Hightstown, NJ. It was a dreary, if functional, building within shouting distance of the New Jersey Turnpike, which we abandoned for commercial Route 130 and free I295 to the Delaware Memorial Bridges. Thence it was down US 301 across the Bay Bridge and then the narrow two-lane bridge across the Potomac at Newburg, a white-knuckle affair until the new companion bridge is completed. Impressive to see the new construction, though.

Sarah, with Dr Janie’s help, is undertaking our traditional “Nine Kinds of Pie that Harold Liked Best,” with her usual amazing alacrity. It’s cool, but sunny, here, with still-vivid November yellow foliage, and we’ll likely tarry for some extra days and Dr J’s birthday on the 28th. I hope all of you in Hillbilly radio land will enjoy this Thanksgiving as well, and put aside for a few days the strange and untoward world of 2021. /CL
