My conservative Idaho roots have been tickled again. Spent the last few very nice days in Boise with my family. We really did have an excellent time including an early Thanksgiving meal with the extended family. Our family has long-standing traditions which include lots of "together" time and also having coffee and donuts together each Friday morning. Oh, you bet, we were there for that! We were also there for Boise State University's slaughter of the University of Idaho....you've never seen so much blue and orange in your life. I've blogged about my sister and her troubles in the past several times. Her date for sentencing is December 5. We'll be back in Boise for that. All of our hearts are pretty dark right now. Pensive. Twisted. Not happy. We made time for putting a few dark red highlights in my hair too. God, isn't life one big happy place to live. And the most unbelievable sunset you've seen in a long time. Amazing. Check out the pics, boys and girls. (And, no laughing, please....) And get ready for a big fat happy thankful Turkey Day. In spite of life's bullshit, there ain't no damn reason we shouldn't be all sassy, happy, and thankful.
Oh, and look who we ran into.......George and Laura send their greetings from the most Republican state in our nation. There was one bright spot though....we tried to take my my family out for coffee at one of Boise's only progressive, open minded coffee joints.....but couldn't get in because the place was packed....no place to sit. Excellent, sweet news!
