November 28, 2013. I had a great Thanksgiving with Jon and Rick and several of their friends, most of whom I had met before. On the way home, I saw people shopping at Old Navy at 10:30 pm. I saw people going up to other stores on North Avenue, thinking they should be open, and I saw this guy trying to get some rest in below freezing temperatures. As much as I wish things were better personally, I was thankful to not be in any of those situations, and thankful to have had a beautiful day among friends.
