Is it coincidence?

Three of my Mother's favorite restaurants have gone out of business this fall ... Papagus, Spago Chicago, and Printers' Row ... I can't help but wonder if they "just couldn't go on without her", even though her restauranting was greatly curtailed (due to her mobility issues) over the past couple of years.

On a related note, we're trying to figure out what to do about Thanksgiving. We were initially going to be going to Disney World with my brother and his family, but between the conference last week, and various other things that are going to be coming up in the next month or so, we had to pull out of that. Right now we don't have any relatives closer than Columbus, OH ... plus (thanks to the asswipes who trashed it when cleaning our carpet) we don't even have a dining room table at the moment. I've been checking out places that have Thanksgiving Dinner, but it's going to be very strange and sad this year.
