Thanksgiving Family Photo

We were very fortunate this Thanksgiving. As you can see from the family photo The Swami took earlier today, despite an unexpected sandstorm, our family and friends arrived on time.

As you can probably tell some of them had come very far, some even from the untamed regions of Indiana and southern Ohio. As is obvious, everyone had worn their newest and most fashionable clothes.

Since most of our guests were only able to stay until late afternoon, it was somewhat of a rush to service and lube their transportation for the return trip. The Swami was able to offer a couple of back-up yaks. In truth, however, one should always be very careful when backing-up a yak.

Swamette is a wonderful cook. However, her idea of how much food to prepare is apparently based upon what it would take to feed a royal yak battalion. This means Swami will still be eating Thanksgiving leftovers as we celebrate the summer solstice.

Swami and Swamette hope that you too had much to be thankful for.

Swami and Swamette:
I am very thankful that I have you as in-laws.
(Even if you have an unnatural love for yaks)

Swami,

I am so thankful for you, your humor, and learning about the wacky world of yaks :)

Wait a minute...those were not yaks! Those are camels. Were they the poorer relatives since their mode of transportation was not the grand Yak? Am I being tacky pointing out that while their fashion statements were slightly less than up to date their mode of transportation was sadly off base?

Well, let's see. Would you believe that some of the family members prefer to travel by camel? If not, how about those were rental camels because their yaks were in for service.

The photo, by some mysterious coincidence, is very similar to the picture on a birthday card that an almost equally wacky friend has sent to The Swami TWICE. NOT that Swami would pass off such a photo as being his family.
