Today I celebrated Thanksgiving with Milton and Inge Rider, their two sons James and John, Inge's cousin Martina Lange and Martina's niece, Ricarda Wawra. There were also three of James' friends. John lives near Raleigh, North Carolina. Martina is from Neu-Isenburg (near Frankfurt) and will be here for several more days. Ricarda is also from the Frankfurt area and is a student in Wisconsin.
Inge outdid herself on the feast. There were two turkeys (one roasted and one smoked), at least twenty side dishes, squash soup and two pies (apple and pumpkin) with ice cream. In short, she could have fed a small army!
I really enjoyed the visit and was happy to meet John, Martina and Ricarda. I had met James and his three friends last Thanksgiving.
