Thanksgiving night, power goes out

Vicki and Leila play Scrabble by candlelight

After an enjoyable lunch and afternoon with Jorge, Paula, son Daniel, and Socorro at a farm/restaurant some 25 miles south of town, we arrive home near 7 p.m. and soon the power goes off. Vicki and Leila decide to play Scrabble by candlelight (click on pic to see it all), but the candles give off too much heat. We wind up taking the dogs for a walk and chatting with the neighbors.
