Thanksgiving has always been special in our family. We enjoy being together, we love to joke as evidenced by the turkey in the video below singing about his “mother-in-law.” Yes, it was a gift to me from Floyd one of my sons-in-law. And, I must say we also like to eat, but Thanksgiving, the American holiday, is more about being grateful.
This year I am especially thankful that my granddaughter, Kate and her husband Tom, are here from England. We have not been together for over a year. Welcome home for Thanksgiving Tom and Kate!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers!

Thanksgiving is an American holiday and while it has historical beginnings it really has become a feast day. For those who do not live here let me say it’s about turkey & dressing, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and pumpkin pies. Of course, we are thankful, too, for family, health, friends and all those things that we are grateful for every day of our lives.
It goes without saying that I am thankful for these things and especially my wonderful family. But, I would like to share with you some other things I’m thankful for every day. It is not an exhaustive list, just things that come to mind at the moment.
- Spiders don’t fly
- Presidents have term limits
- I don’t have to get to know the turkey personally before Thanksgiving
- Rock and Roll never goes out of style
- I don’t have to be young to think young
- Our Earth has oceans
- AARP membership is not a requirement
- I am not forced to eat ground meat
- That Santa Claus is old and forgetful
- My granddaughters shared their friends with me
- Spiders don’t swim
How about you?
Happy Thanksgiving Dear Readers!
And, Thank You to my son-in-law, Floyd, for this turkey which I enjoy each year!
