Lynchburg: What Thanksgiving Is All About

It's been years since I've returned home to Lynchburg, Va., for one of the year-end holidays. For 2011, this Thanksgiving has brought respite, a retreat from a sometimes bit-too-real world and near total lockdown with my parents—my preference.

For the holiday, the folks and I went to my bro Chris & sis-in-law Judy's house in Bedford County, joined by her cool-cat daughters Amanda and Shannon. It hardly felt like an autumn celebration: Temps graciously rose to 63 degrees in the 'burg Thursday.
