for my mom and dad and their comfy pied a terre in cambridge (and their cute dog, lulu, despite her very occasional habit of gnawing on books when they're left on the sofabed). thanks to them, we had a really lovely thanksgiving, our first post-casco bay books. for the last several years, our thanksgiving ritual has involved hanging out at the (closed for the holiday) store, getting carry-out indian food, and skateboarding/scootering in the deserted hallway of 151 middle street (sometimes also a midnight trip to l.l. bean, and once finding a $100 bill on the ground at one a.m.). it was really nice to travel out of portland, and we are lucky to have relatives whose idea of a perfect thanksgiving feast is the same as ours -- a huge indian spread, cooked by someone else!

we played lots of rummy k, and drank many cups of tea. we took dog walks, went to book stores, ate great food, and i even got an amazingly luxurious hot stone massage from my very favorite massage therapist! i hope your thanksgiving was as restful and sweet as mine was.
