Thanksgiving Thursday




Two special events occur today. It is Thanksgiving with Colordolady at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com and her Vintage Thingies Thursday.


Today is a special day set aside for a wonderful meal and giving thanks. We all need to take the time and give thanks for our many blessings. Some of the things I am most thankful are:

THANKFUL,THANKFUL

- have had reasonably good health all my life
- still self-sufficient
- my family
- blogging friends
- able to pay my bills




THANKFUL,THANKFUL

- my retirement benefits
- home cooked meals
- my church family
- Coloradolady for introducing me to the World of Blogging
- wonderful neighbors
- only take one medicine
- good teeth


I am sure this vintage turkey platter has served many a family some good eating.

This is a vintage image I found on the internet.
