On to Porter

Commentary will be having Thanksgiving Dinner in Porter, Texas this afternoon. Porter is an unincorporated area in Montgomery County. It is just north of Kingwood. According to my traffic app, it will be a 30 minute drive. It is like going to Baytown. My niece Cristina and her husband Alex live there.

My Dad, my sis Sylvia, my nephews David A. and Enrique, and Dante will also be there. Topics of discussion will be the usual: family gossip, politics, and the Astros.

It is not the first time I will have had Thanksgiving Dinner in Montgomery County. During my high school years, my girlfriend had family in Montgomery County. I went with her one Thanksgiving Day to have dinner with her family, in, get this, the City of Montgomery. To top it off and I kid you not, my then girlfriend’s last name was, you got it, Montgomery. Now you know.

Who has played the best Santa Claus in a movie role? That’s an easy one and a no brainer. Edmund Gwenn who played Kris Kringle in the 1947 “Miracle on 34th Street.” Don’t believe me! He won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for the role. The movie also picked up Oscars for Best Original Story and Best Screenplay and also got nominated for Best Picture.

Maureen O’Hara, Natalie Wood and William Frawley, Fred Mertz of “I Love Lucy” fame, also were in the flick.

That’s all I have.

Have a nice Thanksgiving Day!
