* MY COUNTDOWN TO THANKSGIVING - DAY 2 *

* Countdown to Thanksgiving *
 
 
 
I never spent Thanksgiving at my grandparents' home when I was a little girl. I'm sure it was because they lived hundreds of miles away from us and time just didn't allow it. I sometimes wished we could be there with them, and would go around our house singing the song in the You Tube video below:
 
 
 
And of course, my wishes also included the snow and the horse-drawn sleigh!

(Ahh, my friend Robert Brault has written more amazing words of wit and wisdom than anyone else I know! His books can be purchased on Amazon.)

  1. I never met any of my grandparents, and have never tasted pumpkin pie. Or celebrated Thanksgiving. Am I deprived or am I deprived?

  2. I used to imagine myself on that horse-drawn sleigh, too.

  3. Ah, but there's always room for another slab of mince pie. (smile) Thanks, Becky.

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
