TRAVEL AND HOLIDAY UPDATE
I made it back to Miami. That's the good news. The bad news is that I am now in Miami, where the Thanksgiving bird is not so much a turkey as it is a hand gesture Miami drivers make to one another in the genuinely insane traffic that develops here right before major holidays.
Also Mrs. Blog informs me that a crocodile was captured in a neighbor's swimming pool. The neighborhood association email alert says that "the 4-foot reptile has been tagged and relocated to a crocodile-designated area in the county." That's right: Our county has a crocodile-designated area. The email alert doesn't say where it is. Far away, I hope. I'm also wondering: Do we have a separate area designated for alligators? Snakes? Lawyers who advertise on TV? Kardashians?
In any event. I'm thankful to be home and not driving any more. I hope you're home; or with loved ones; or at least with ones you don't hate; or, at bare minimum, beer. Wherever you are, I hope you have a good Thanksgiving.
