Ralph’s Plaid For The Holiday

Confession:  Every Thanksgiving, I go house to house strictly for food.  Throughout the day on Thanksgiving, I take my appetite on tour.  Friends, relatives, associates, and co-workers…no one is off limits…and there is no tour date I will not honor on Thanksgiving.  Today, the “Thanksgiving Tour” started early with a Thanksgiving Lucheon at my daughter’s school.  Not only did I find this as a time to celebrate the holiday early, but I also saw an opportunity for daddy/daughter dress up…thanks to my good friend “Ralph”:
