My SIL, Bep and Cousin Bill visiting on Thanksgiving day before the meal was served. Cousin Bill usually says "the dirty dishes are MINE". That is the best thing he can do for the cook and he always cleans up the dishes at any dinner he attends. Also, if I need ANY HELP I can always count on him. Bep is a retired school teacher and has visited several weeks at a time since she retired. I more or less just hand everything over to her to do when she walks into the house. That gives me some well deserved time for WHATEVER I choose to do even if it is nothing at all.
Bep's youngest Louie always tells us to give him a job and this time, it was to fix the curtains. While we were all visiting he was up on a ladder trying his darnest to complete the task. Alas, we need a new curtain rod. The kitty justice is it was a beautiful sunny day for Thanksgiving.
