Lakin stumbled across some old video that I took before she was born. I must have purchased a new video camera just before this trip to Bakersfield, because I taped a lot of stuff. I have over an hour of all the events before, during and after our thanksgiving get together in 1998. Anyway, this one clip caught my eye. Is this only a “Dickson” tradition or do other families try to make each other laugh at the most socially inappropriate times?
I’m pretty sure this is the last time the Dickson 12 were at Thanksgiving dinner together. The video shots of the house completely packed with tables, chairs, food and people make me want for yesteryear. Watching the “X-mas card picture recreation” and the late night card playing was classic.
