My youngest son has friends known as "travelers" --- sort of modern-day hippie vagabonds who travel across the country by train (and not Am-track) and hitchhiking. I'll blog about this another time because it's an absolutely fascinating disturbing subject. Anyway, Sir Richard had two friends in town who were making their way towards St. Louis, and he wanted to know if they could have Thanksgiving dinner with us.
"Of course," I said.
Dread-locked, tattooed and hungry, the two guys spent the afternoon and much of the evening with us sharing our very non-traditional Thanksgiving meal, (my family wanted Asian food this year). Over homemade crab rangoon, pad thai (made by Sir Richard), fried rice, teriyaki beef and chicken, Adam and Steele shared stories of their various travel adventures and then over tea and coffee, they sat in the living room and played guitar and harmonica with my son.
I hope your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as ours.
