Turkey and weather compliment Thanksgiving. Back in the old college days we would load as many guys into a car as possible for the trek home. At Gannon University, Marty DeRose was the wheel man, transporting fraternity brothers to Meadville, Ellwood City and Beaver Falls, PA. We left Erie on Wednesday afternoon in 1968 with clouds and light flurries. Similar to last week's lake-effect snowstorm, when we arrived in Meadville and the "snowbelt," the "white stuff" covered Marty's car. He made the deliveries and we made it to Duffy's Tavern where Little Joe was bangin' out tunes on the piano for a couple hundred college kids. Thanksgiving day was mud or snow football, and those great smells emanating from Shirley Shingleton's kitchen.
