We had a good-sized bunch here for Thanksgiving, with lots of food, of course and also a birthday to celebrate: twelve year old granddaughters Schuyler and Gabrielle.  They are really my STEP-grandaughters but their original grandmothers have both died so I am the default Grandma and honored to be so.  In addition to pumpkin, pecan, and aple pies brought by my son Ben, stepson Andrew brought a birthday cake so there was no shortage of dessert. Or gifts.  I gave the girls each two books---but because of the fact that I can't remember every title*, I won't mention any and thereby shortchange any authors.  Enough to know that books are always a welcome gift in our extended household.

I remember the day 12 years ago these twins were born very well because of the circumstances---I was in Mass. General Hospital (very sick with aftermath of flu) while my daughter-in-law was in labor with twins down the road at a different Boston hospital.

We all survived and now the twins----Martin's youngest of five grandchildren---are in sixth grade, quite tall and pretty (I mentioned that to a friend who said: "Good, they can become models." Oh, puhLEEZE!)...and they have just moved back to Massachusetts from Florida so we can see them and their family more often.

Martin and I went to see Sean Penn's amazing performance in "Milk" Sunday afternoon and now I have the documentary "The Times of Harvey Milk" coming from Netflix. Bet anything SP watched it over and over.

The Hunger Games, and The Graveyard Book

Yikes! That's very scary. I'm glad you're safe, though, and I hope next time you run into the Dalai Lama instead.

Some people are just weirdness magnets.

jake the girl Monday, 29 November 1999

I'm glad you're okay!

Ronni Monday, 29 November 1999

I'm glad you're OK!!! Ack!!!

Kelsey Monday, 29 November 1999

I'm so sorry that happened and I'm glad you're okay -at least physically! How unsettling.

Roger Sutton Monday, 29 November 1999

Holy crap.

Greg Monday, 29 November 1999

To begin, I'm glad nothing worse happened. Secondly, I agree with you about the drama aspect. If you are going to be present, why not experience a bank robbery to the fullest extent? This sounds like a future story! Perhaps a short story. As always, life is a journey, with some events more thrilling than others. Be well, and only go to ATM's for a few weeks. Thanks for continually sharing.

I think it would have been more interesting in theory than actuality. :- I'm glad nothing worse happened.

Betty Birney Monday, 29 November 1999

Yikes! Can this be a mere coincidence? Are you meant to write about a bank robbery? Something to ponder. Glad you're okay - that's what counts!

Jennifer Elliott Monday, 29 November 1999

Oh my gosh! I'm glad you're okay! How awful!
