Thanksgiving For The Time We Had

One year ago this week, Doc Halstead passed away in Penn Valley. He had been at our home for Thanksgiving just two days earlier. We spent the afternoon reminiscing about our years in Atlanta with the Carrie Nation band, and when we were roomies during the winter that wouldn’t end in Tahoe Donner. When it came time to go, Mary Ann asked him if he wanted to take the beer he brought but never drank. “No,” he said with a smile, “Save it for next year.” It’s still in the fridge, Doc.
