Your heartwarming Thanksgiving tale

By Melissa Bell

(Susan Biddle/The Washington Post)

It seems an Australian journalist has been mistakenly cc'ed on to an American family's e-mail chain about their Thanksgiving preparations. Someone in the Tran family had mistakenly added the wrong James West to the chains for three years. The Australian West did not pay much attention until this year, when he began reading the family's plans in earnest. He decided to make a YouTube apology to the family for his eavesdropping, and asked for an invite. Long story short: The Trans will be welcoming James West to Florida tomorrow for their Thanksgiving dinner.

And with that warm and fuzzy feeling, I bit you adieu. I'll be posting sporadically over the next two days, but we'll all be back in action on Monday -- a little bit fuller and a little bit more thankful. Happy Thanksgiving!

(And happy turkey to the Daily What!)
