Our Thanksgiving celebration did have a sad ending.
Brother-in-Law came over that evening for leftovers, as he does every year. When he left, he took a small container of food with him, and set it on the seat of his truck, then came back in to tell Sweetie one more thing.
When he got back outside, someone had slashed two tires on his truck and, adding insult to injury, opened the door and taken the food.
We are still trying to work out how to get new tires for him.
