The Best

That’s what Thanksgiving is to me.  The Best Holiday of the Year.


Family.   Friends.   Food.   Football.


Enjoying the traditional Bloody Mary and Mom’s braided bread while watching the  Macy’s Parade, and the National Dog Show.



No Gifts.   No Shopping.   No fighting over Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas.


Just the colors and beauty of the season.


Remembering the blessing of good health, and the opportunity to give to those less fortunate.


Cheers, and Go Hokies!



Tomorrow in the US, we celebrate all that is good about family, friends, food, (and football).  We also celebrate the non-monetary gifts of sharing our time, our good fortune, and our love.

Wishing you warmth and many Thanksgiving blessings!

Gathered ‘Round

I’m quite sure that there is no better holiday than Thanksgiving.


If fortunate, the food and drink are plentiful,

 and family and friends are near.


From my home to yours, I wish you warmth, shelter, sustenance, and peace.  I’m thankful to have you in my WordPress World.


My son, Andrew, and me.  

Do you have a favorite holiday?


So thankful for all of you, my wordpress family


On this day of Thanksgiving and beyond, may you enjoy health and happiness …

no matter where you live in this great big world.
