  2. Thanksgiving
    Strangely enough, it helps me to relax reading about other people's mishaps during the holiday. I think I'm thankful we don't have a lot of drama in our family. What's the worst you've been through on Thanksgiving?

    I started a thread somewhat like this some weeks ago, but since we're entering the colder months I am reminded of an uncle that unplugged his fridge, kept milk and meat in his garage and only used two rooms in his entire house. He heated with an old pot-belly stove with coal and wood scraps he...
