Thanksgiving: Part the Third

Scheiss Weekly, Thanksgiving, Rockwell Mamacita says: I’m a sucker for a “returning soldier” sentiment. Norman Rockwell knew how to hit us in the heart, and that’s a fact.  Some things never change.  Even now, in 2012, there are people anxiously awaiting the return of a loved one, and greatly missing those who can’t get leave.

I guess my only complaint, and it’s not really a complaint – just something I’ve noticed – about Rockwell’s family portraits is that the mother always looks like she’s 110 years old.  Oh, well. . . maybe it’s the grandmother.

Although, my mother is 81 and looks like she could be the daughter of the mother in this painting.

Also?  There is something about a man in a kitchen, under any circumstances, that is pretty darn sexy. . . .
