Babe performs the usual Thanksgiving table inspection down Goomp's and pronounces all up to snuff.
"Procreation isn't the only reason for having two sexes, as was demonstrated today," imails our sis, referring to the natural segretation of gals like us in the kitchen and our men in the keeping room this afternoon as we put the final touches on our Thanksgiving groaning-board tour de force while the boys discussed ship-model building and such.
Goomp's boy kitty, Purrky -- Mr. Perkins -- taste tests the turkey prior to the big roast.
"Women 'chat' about recipes, while men 'discuss' tools and model building."
After three hours at 350 degrees, Purrky pronounces the turkey acceptable for feline consumption.
"I can't help it. I love them, and vive le difference."
The table decor and groaning board win hearts and minds all around.
"It was interesting that there was NO FOOTBALL watching! The electronic hearth, and Googling, have raised their level of discussion." Indeed. Football watching -- like anything else -- is just an energizer. When you have ship-model building at hand, who needs football?
