Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

tgivomg turkeyAs I type this I’m looking out the window at the late afternoon sun slanting through the Douglas Fir trees that border the western side of our property. It reminds me how lucky we are to live in this beautiful place.

The year seems to have flown past; here it is late November and cold weather is settling in. We turn our thoughts to what’s good in our lives. That’s especially important in light of all the terrible things we see in the news every day. So let’s put that out of mind for a day and concentrate on all we have to be thankful for.

We have our health, we have family, friends, cats. We have the garden. I’m so thankful for the music I can hear, the books and my ability to read them! We have a lot to be thankful for, I’ll bet you do too.

    Happiest of T-days, Rick! Mid ’60s here in the Jersey burbs of Philadelphia today.

    We had really cold weather here the last two Thanksgivings – mid-30s for a high – but this year we are at 61, well over the normal high of 50. It is beautiful out there. We’re actually on track for the warmest November ever in NYC.

  9. Happy Thanksgiving, Richard!

  10. Hope you had a great one.
