Thanksgiving tradition, round 2

Last year (2006) we started a new Thanksgiving tradition for this leg of the Blizzard clan. Both my parents and Pam’s mom are gone, years ago. Pam’s dad is too afraid of hurricanes and tornados that might suddenly attack the Tampa area and won’t visit. (I won’t mention that he lives just outside Pensacola. Think of a bowling lane. Think of the sweet spot for a strike, between the 1 and 3 pins. That’s pretty much what Pensacola is in the game of Hurricane Bowling. Tampa, on the other hand, is a total gutter ball. Hurricanes don’t come through here. Makes us wonder what the real reason is that Pam’s dad won’t visit… but that’s another story, for another time. And this is about our new holiday tradition.)

So our new family Thanksgiving tradition is to take a Thanksgiving cruise. We did last year and loved it. As a result we decided to keep the tradition alive this year, and went on another cruise. And we had another blast. Over the next few days I’ll post about the relaxing time we had on this year’s journey aboard the Carnival Valor.
