Derek Elkins begins Turkey Week proper with a heartwarming account of a grumpy old man and a persistent young woman. This is a departure for Elkins, because he is our resident, “If a t-shirt cannon is good, then a hot dog cannon awesomeness.” Elkins knows how to make a person smile with a twist toward the preposterous.
Not today, though. Today he brings the feels with Thanksgiving. And, if I may (and I can because this is my blog) let me point out I am seeing a trend with the Fondue Writer’s Club Thanksgiving stories — they are all sweet and kind. Even Shaw. I mean, EVEN SHAW! Okay, Cely’s was a little depressive, but in a reflective kind of way.
