    We usually have a huge turkey dinner, with all the trimmings… but this year, we are all over the place… and my dad is working away from us. So I’m sure we will just have to organize something out of the ‘ordinary’… but well figure something out. He’ll feel special, on his day… because he is. My dad is the best.
