    Will be Chaz and I. Kids all grown and live in Iowa and Colorado. Normally Chaz would be out hunting but this year he will continue to work on the well. I am hoping all the ducks will fall in line so he has a chance to get out hunting.

    No real need to lock the thread. Just some folks discussing their holiday plans. Harmless....

    We usually do 4 generations of family every Thanksgiving.
    Usually thirty or so of us depending on who shows.
    Last year I came down with something a day or two after Thanksgiving that took 3 weeks to recover from.
    My S-I-L (who probably wouldn't come anyway) just had open heart surgery.
    This year we are all doing immediate family only so there might be three of us, maybe four.
    Might do the same for Christmas.
    So as of right now we're not planning on having the usual Thanksgiving or Christmas.

    I might do a cookout this coming Summer instead. Haven't done a big Summer barbecue since my dad died in 2004.

    Cancelled all the Thanksgiving plans, only the two of us. I will be happy if we do not catch the virus from all our normal end-of-fall errands (servicing the vehicles, shopping, hair cuts...). Chances of getting the virus are near 100% in our neck-of-the-woods for a group of 10 or more people (we are both over 60). Kids think it would be crazy to have the holiday together. I will not disagree with my misplaced priorities (I would rather cut firewood than catch the virus :tears:).
