Just in time for Thanksgiving

Martin_Chuzzlewit_04

A gathering of Chuzzlewits, illustrated by “Phiz” (Hablot Knight Browne) (image source)

“Relations never did agree, and never will; which is a wise dispensation and an inevitable thing, or there would be none but family parties, and everybody in the world would bore everybody else to death.”

Ha ha!  I am reading Martin Chuzzlewit, and enjoying it immensely. The turkey is in the oven. It’s sitting a little oddly on it’s backside, so I am crossing my fingers that it does not have an “arresting presentation” on the wrong end of the scale.

No relatives beyond immediate family here today – see above.  Just kidding;)

Happy Thanksgiving!

        It looks hilarious- Wikipedia says it was DIckens’ least popular novel, though he himself thought it was his best. We had a very nice Thanksgiving with our very various relatives. 🙂 One nice thing about them is that they tend to be very pleasant in spite of their variedness. We thought of you, I hope yours was pleasant as well!
