* Countdown to Thanksgiving *
Wow, tomorrow is Thanksgiving! How did the fourth Thursday in November arrive so fast?!
I just love these adorable pilgrim salt & pepper shakers!
They're from the grocery store, Publix, which is in the South.
My sister, Marian, sent them to me as a little gift in 2010.
Both of these photos are a bit blurry.
I'll have to take new pictures,
just as soon as I dig through more boxes! J
I was a bit melancholy the first couple of years we didn't have all of our grown kids and grandkids over for our Thanksgiving get-together. We always had our dinner the Saturday before most actual holidays, because it just made it so much better for them. No pressure and/or guilt about trying to make it to X number of houses, and X number of dinners....but this year, I am feeling much happier about going to one of their homes tomorrow! All I'm bringing is a couple of bottles of wine!
One of my favorite Thanksgiving/Christmas movies:
Miracle on 34th Street...the original, in black and white.
Fred: That baseball player sure looks like a giant to me.
Susan: Sometimes people grow very large, but that's abnormal.
Fred: I'll bet your mother told you that, too.
