Fall 2009

I love these and hope to make more before it snows.

Since 2003 Joe Rizzo has hosted the "Orphans Thanksgiving", which is made up of a group of Minneapolis transplants with no family to spent the holidays with. This year there were some new faces; Patience, Ancho (the cat), Elena and JV.

Thanksgiving pt 2

The game.

We feasted, relaxed, enjoyed each others company and drank wine. Rizzo is in a new apartment this year and it was set up perfectly to just spread out and sprawl out.

Thanksgiving pt 3

There were two heated Scrabble matches. After viewing the scrabble two & three letter website, Namdev was comfortable with taking a chance and spelling jiberish in order to gain more points. Rizzo & JV were so determined to come in as the "first loser" that they created their own words and "bonality" was born. Ultimately Elena won both matches because her game is just too sick for us. Her game is like an art. If you challenge her you may win that battle but not the game. When she's 40+ points ahead it really doesn't matter.
