There had been some debate as to whether or not we would be hosting Thanksgiving at Fur Central this year. I had wanted to drive to Chicago, pick up my mom, and have a nice road trip experience with her as we made our way back here for TG. She never said "no" to me, but she evidently told so to my sister who would accompany me to Chicago. It's a case where the mind is willing but the flesh is weak. She didn't feel like she could make a trip like this at her age with all of her various aches and pains. So that sealed it. TG would be held here. I WILL make a trip to Chicago the week before to be with her, but I will be flying, not driving. It did seem a bit excessive to make 2 long road trips so close together. I also hear there is some sort of furry gathering in Chicago that weekend. *shrugs* Not like I'll be going or anything.
So if you have no plans or family and want to experience a traditional TG holiday (with a furry twist) you are more than welcome to come out here and join us. In years past it has been a great time.
