Happy Thanksgiving

SBX split early this morning to run the Turkey Trot in Prospect Park and later we head over to the Upper West Side of Manhattan where I grew up with my late brother and very best friend eyehawk to join his family's Thanksgiving dinner where his mother rules the soul kitchen. I expect to load up on thick gravy and delicious bread stuffing among the usual turkey fare while waxing fond memories of playing with Mego action figures, Atari video games, and Spy Club, while sitting around watching monsters and kung-fu on the 4:30 Movie and reading Marvel and DC Comics. Weather permitting we either drive up to the Catskill's tonight or tomorrow morning to rendezvous with my mother who's bringing home my brother's ashes. It's going to be a meaningful weekend in the mountains.
