Hello the House!

Is time flying or what?!!  Thanksgiving was divine...spent with my family and wonderful friends.  I simply "wallowed" in the delectable delights (...I told You!) served up by my friend and host, Dawn Lewis.  This woman is not only a "star" of stage and screen, but a sorceress in the kitchen!  The "Caribbean Queen" of seafood stuffing, jerk turkey and glazed walnut sweet potatoes that make you forget all about dessert!  (Is your mouth watering?  It should be.)

As if that wasn't enough, we all languished about, after the blessed meal, catching up, sharing love and goodwill  until 8:00 p.m., when it was time to go on to the next stop.  The grand "dessert party" hosted by my other friends, Harold and Hattie Wheeler.  Now, folks, let me tell you that this is the most "extravaganza, banana pudding, sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, coconut cake, devil's food cake, ice cream, cookie eating fest that ever was!  And, I didn't even name all of the desserts ... let alone mention the standing "island of turkey, dressing, macaroni and cheese, greens (oh well, you get the picture)" in the middle of the kitchen.

The doorbell chimed incessantly as guest after guest arrived.  There was a cacophony of cheers, squeals and peals of laughter as old and new friends were lovingly greeted by Hattie, Harold and their charming daughter, Samantha. The house literally overflowed with people.  I chatted with old friends like Jackee Harry, Robert Hooks and  Loretta Devine. Shared banana pudding in the kitchen with Judy Pace and listened to Oz Scott discuss the pros and cons of good versus bad directing .   We played Taboo in the media room, discussed theater, politics and, of course, the  much beleaguered results of "Dancing with the Stars".  A wonderful evening with wonderful friends, family and new acquaintances, and just a GREAT Thanksgiving all around.  I am blessed.
