For Thanksgiving 2005, we did something that we wouldn't normally do: we traveled during one of the busiest travel times of the year. If you need to ask, the answer is, "Yes, we are that crazy."
It had been more than a year since we had last visited John's grandparents and Aunt Lotte and Uncle Richard in South Carolina. Since John's grandfather was now over 90 years old and had a difficult time traveling by plane (and even by motor home), we felt that it was important to make a trip out to visit him at least once a year.
And each time we travel out to see him, we always say, "This may be the last time we see Opa alive..." Yet, there's always a next time...
Despite the Thanksgiving holiday, John and I managed to get a great deal on Northwest Airlines to fly to Charlotte, so we had to take advantage of it. True, it meant that we would have to take Mary out of school for three days, but visiting her great-grandparents was far more important.
