Jerome took his plastic container and returned to the nursing home, secretly wondering on the way if he had gotten any more turkey stuffing.

Jeff invited Maggie out for a drive with him and Debbie. Debbie ran to Vera's room to fetch their coats. She was glad to leave. Maggie blushed again and left with Jeff and his daughter.

All the guests had gone. Vera was in the kitchen, washing dishes, while Charlie sank into the sofa and rested her sore ankle on the coffee table.

"Are you going to be able to go to school, Monday?" asked Chuck.

"Yeah," replied Charlie, "I only need to stay off it for a while."

"That was a good Thanksgiving meal," said Chuck.

"Thank God for that," replied Charlie, "for it was no small miracle that the dinner went as well as it did."

That evening, Adam stopped by for a visit. He had waited for Chuck and Charlie to make their routine visit after dinner, and when they didn't show, came to see if everyone was all right.

"Except for a small mishap with Charlie's ankle, everyone here is fine," declared Chuck, contentedly reclined on the sofa.

After an hour, Adam got up to leave.

"Are you playing chess with Uncle Jerome, tonight?" asked Charlie.

"Yeah," replied Adam. "Why do you ask?"

"Just curious," smiled Charlie. "Well, I'm going to turn in early. Goodnight, Daddy," said Charlie bending over to kiss her father. "Goodnight, Adam."

As Charlie hobbled away to her room, she overheard Adam say to her father,

"That's quite a girl you have."
