Tis the day before Thanksgiving. She's finishing up at work; packing; traveling; shopping for groceries; setting tables; volunteering at a food bank; picking up relatives from the airport; picking up pies and turkeys; cooking; cleaning up; looking forward to, and stressing, about seeing relatives and friends; she's looking forward to seeing her college kids too. Lots of retail workers will work tonight, tomorrow and through Black Friday. This is the busiest travel time of the year, so think planes, trains and automobiles, and all those that operate them.
