The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Holy crap, it's a Thanksgiving deja-vu miracle! Last year I commented about my family's Thanksgiving Day traditions of low-class dining and rented-footwear sportsmanship. So after today's festivities, I went back into my archives to compare bowling scores, and although I didn't realize it at the time, the similarities between this year and last are downright eerie:

- Same Bowling Alley/Restaurant
- Same Sutter Home White Zin
- Same Make-Shift Bluecheese Burger
- Same Relishing in the Senior Discount
- Same Madam Von Bighair:

(And again, if you're out there, Madam Von Bighair, there is truly no offense implied. In fact, it's a pleasure to see you there year after year. Just like some people find solace in green bean casserole on Thanksgiving, I find comfort in your impossibly high coiffure.)

- And last but not least, same exact high bowling score by dan:

That's right! 144, bitches!

Next year I might shake things up by substituting a baked potato for the fries.

WOW, that really is creepy! Uncle Ray had his usual tofurkey with bean sprout stuffing. He once dated a Madam Von Bighair but hasn't seen her in years. Guess he needs to spend next Thanksgiving with you.

Happy Thanksgiving Dan.

I've been reading your words for about a month now and I must say, thank you for all the smiles and the laughs out loud (lol for real).

May the holidays bring you more wonderful experiences for you to share

How is it possible for hair to be that voluminous? Honestly, I can't figure it out. Someone should do a study.....

My grandmother has hair almost that big - and I will share her secret. She wraps her head in toilet paper each night before she goes to bed. No foolin.
