Our church parish house thanksgiving was good, although the day was damp. We caught up on our sleep in the afternoon, and watched the Dallas Cowboys beat the Redskins in an early evening thriller.
The crab apples on the tree on the south side of the house, heavy with dew, sparkled in a rare moment of morning sunshine; a treat on a rather dismal day.
