ALL OF THE HELP. AS EXPECTED.. TODAY WAS A BIG DAY FOR TRAVEL, WITH PEOPLE MAKING THEIR WAY TO THANKSGIVING DINNERS. WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO ASK SOME OF THOSE TRAVELERS WHERE THEY’RE GOING.. AND WHAT AWAITS THEM WHEN THEY GET THERE. THEIR ANSWERS.. HAD ALL THE MAKINGS OF A HEARTWARMING THANKSGIVING STORY. TIM WALLER HAS MORE. THE INTERSTATES WERE SURPRISINGLY BUSY TODAY, GABBY.. WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE CHOOSING TO TRAVEL ON THANKSGIVING DAY ITSELF. AND WHILE THERE WAS PLENTY OF TALK ABOUT THE FEASTS THAT AWAIT THEM.. MOST GATHERINGS ARE ABOUT SO MUCH MORE. YOU NEVER KNOW IN ALL THIS TRAFFIC WHAT THANKSGIVING PLANS LIE AHEAD… UNTIL YOU PULL OVER. “There’s the mincemeat…” THAT’S LEANN MACMILLAN’S FAMOUS MINCEMEAT PIE.. CAREFULLY BEING TRANSPORTED FROM CHARLOTTE TO GAINESVILLE. THAT’S WHERE THE MACMILLAN’S AND THEIR DOG WILL ENJOY THANKSGIVING DINNER WITH LEANN’S MOTHER. “My mother is 95 and every Thanksgiving that we have with mom, it could be her last. So we always want to see mom.” IT TURNS OUT, GAINESVILLE IS ALSO WHERE MICHAEL GORDON AND HIS WIFE.. AND THEIR DOG.. ARE HEADED. THEY, TOO, WILL ENJOY THANKSGIVING DINNER WITH MOM… BUT NO MEAL IS COMPLETE WITHOUT GORDON AND HIS TWIN BROTHER AT THE SAME TABLE. Tim: “When you and your brother get together…” “Well, we start finishing our sentences. It used to be we weren’t aware how we sort of cut everybody out, had our own little secret language. Now we’re a little more aware of that and try to be more inclusive, but as we’ve gotten older, we don’t see each other as much as we used to, so it’s a special occasion.” OF COURSE.. FOOD DOES MAKE THE OCCASION SPECIAL.. WHETHER IT’S ERIN JOHNSON’S GRANDMOTHER’S SPECIALTY… “Sweet potato pie.” OR CATHERINE ROGERS’ FAMILY FAVORITE. “I always look forward to the broccoli casserole, which my mom’s sister actually made. I don’t know many families that do the broccoli casserole that we do.” BUT THERE’S NO TIME TO REST.. WITH ALL THAT FAMILY AND FOOD.. WAITING.. A STATE OR TWO AWAY. BY THE WAY, WE WERE OFFERED SOME OF THAT MINCEMEAT PIE.. BUT WE DECLINED.. SO LEANN MACMILLAN WOULDN’T HAVE TO EXPLAIN WHY THERE WAS A PIECE MISSING.
