Due to family obligations and a much-needed trip to the Hill Country, Slampo's Place will be closed for the week of Thanksgiving. We will open again next week. We appreciate your patronage.
We have many things to be thankful for this week---we won't torture you with the list---although we're never quite sure to whom or to what we're thankful.
There is one item, however, that we forgot to add to our list, although the full-page ad on page C7 of Tuesday's Houston Chronicle sports section jogged our memory. It's the ad with the large picture of the spruce middle-aged gentleman with the inscrutable smile.
We know Maureen Dowd is thankful, too.
