THANKSGIVING TURKEY III. Me. So, it has all come down to this. The feast is over. The Oldest and her husband left for Oklahoma, returning to her home. The College Daughter left yesterday amid much kisssing and I love you's, but still not calling when she arrived. The Baby has gone with new boyfriend to a party with his family. The Little Woman left for work. Left is the operative word.
I stayed. I have arrayed my books and computer to study, but I cannot fail but notice that when I am not typing, there is no sound, just silence. The silence of left.
