Thanksgiving

I missed Thanksgiving the last two years while in Paris. This year I was able to celebrate twice. The first time was last Sunday when I attended a Thanksgiving dinner at the home of friends Greg and Sarah Amorese. Greg has been hosting dinner for friends on the Sunday before Thanksgiving since 1980. He started the tradition back in his college days.

This year there were 51 people.

 Greg cooked two large turkeys and the guests brought the rest of the side dishes, appetizers, and desserts.

 Dinner ended with an impromptu cello concert by Greg & Sarah's son Peter who is only 13 years old.  This is the Bach Cello Suite No.1 - Allemande.  Listen for yourself.
