Bronx Thanksgiving Fun

Posted by Ted on Thursday, November 26th 2020:

With my cousins and grandparents squeezed into our tiny 4th floor walkup, the bridge table and chairs were out, and all the melmac dishes were in use. My dad got an electric knife from his boss as a gift and cut his thumb using it. When he jumped up from the table with blood pouring out on the just-opened logs of cranberry goo from Krasdale cans, the bridge table went flying and grandma got the goo in her lap, and my 4-year-old sister screamed in terror at the blood. I remember every detail and every face like it was yesterday and it's hard to believe it was over 60 years ago. Happy Thanksgiving!
