Thanksgiving 2008

Thanksgiving at Moone Athy was once again a great success – wonderful weather, food and festivities, with something of interest for everyone. There were nature walks for our pacifists, bonfires for pyromaniacs, war games for jingoists, and election discussions for sadists or masochists – depending on party affiliation. This year, well illustrated in the first two photos, it wasn’t only the Toms that were strutting. Here’s our pictorial recap, with apologies to family participants omitted from this review.
