This year is a sad thanksgiving. We can’t travel and see our families. The amazing Steelers are playing the Ravens and I will have to watch it on zoom with my family. That said, it could be worse. You could be one of these guys. Yinz all be safe and happy.
We have had this Cactus for at least ten years. It use to bloom every December like clockwork. You know when it use to snow in December. Last few years it began to bloom around Thanksgiving. This year is the first year in bloomed in October. I figure if global warming continues it will soon be a Memorial Day Cactus.
This year is the first time in a long time we will be home on Thanksgiving. Normally we venture to Boston and spend Thanksgiving with family but because of our heavy travel schedule, this year we will celebrate at home. I love our neighborhood this time of year. Neighbors are involved in high end home decorating in Regent Square and some have a great sense of humor. This one is on my street. Thanks neighbor!
I can’t think of this holiday without thinking of my Daughter who was just one month old at her first Thanksgiving. This is an old picture of her, my Mom and my lovely wife in State College Pennsylvania thirty one years ago. The turkey was bigger than she was. Have a great holiday!
Tomorrow we are shipping up to Boston to see family and friends and enjoy a great meal. However, it is not so great for these guys! There is no hunting where we live so these guys are safe. Most of us will eat farm raised turkey’s tomorrow or maybe Tofurkey. Still in the spirit of the Native Americans we stole this land from, I want to thank these turkeys for giving their lives so we can provide sustenance at our family gatherings. I also want to give thanks for my family and friends, this wonderful country and those who defend it and to my increasingly larger number of fans who follow and read this blog. Have a great holiday!
