Thanksgiving - bless us one and all

Some of the men carving the turkey as seen from outside -
The fourth Thursday in November is the American holiday of Thanksgiving ....oddly placed on the calendar to serve as a celebration of the harvest and to give thanks for the blessings of the year.  

To me, the Canadian date for Thanksgiving, the second Monday in October, is more aptly placed on the calendar.  Never the mind.

 Today DH and I celebrated Thanksgiving with a feast with our neighbors and other friends.  It was good to share a wonderful meal and remember all we have been blessed with - family, friends, life ...

Wishing you and yours all the best -

We celebrated Thanksgiving on the beach yesterday. A bit overcast but thankfully still shorts weather. Anyways, one of the guests was a friend visiting from Germany. Made me think of you two living in Germany.

Nope ... it was an All-American menu that day! Considering we didn't eat American Indian-style food ... guess it really wasn't All-American.
