Thanksgiving In Marysville

Marysville 2014-11-27 1

Thanksgiving in Marysville, Kansas, at the home of my mother-in-law, Elvira Kruse. She lives on Keating Street, above, on the edge of the prairie. Elvira will be 96 on Saturday.

Thanks to the marvels of modern technology, all us Apple people brought in daughter Emily and Madeleine after dinner on Face Time. Son Andy and his wife, Claire, drove in from Chicago and made a fabulous meal. Below, Andy, sister-in-law Mary Lee, Mrs. C, Claire and Elvira gather around the TV and Andy's MacBook, sending greetings back to The Lou.

And, at the bottom, Madeleine takes her first steps! A day to remember.

I love Thanksgiving. It's a wonderful time for family to come together. I wish there was a tradition like it here in Germany.

Wow, that first photo looks like a movie set. No gardens at all and just one tree. I don't think I could live in a place like this one.

Happy thanksgiving Bob.. Umm! Did you forget to put that last photo of Madeleine, or is it just me not getting it :)

That certainly looks to be the 'edge' of something. Sounds like everyone had a great day 'together'. Ah... technology.

Your photos today are superb. The first photo looks like it captures a town on an alternate planet. The photo of the older woman and young man is a study in contrasts. (And congrats to M.)
